Makeup Tips


Tan at Least Two Days in Advance

If you’re going to get a fake tan before the big day, spray-tan at least two days prior to your wedding, makeup artist Alexandra Andrade advises. “It’ll darken on the second day, and by the third day, it’ll have settled and be perfect.”

For a perfect eye shape, use a small brush to blend a medium tone color from just below the brow arch downwards in a semi-circle motion. Line your eyelids with a pencil and blend a darker shade into the crease and outer corner. Shadow application should be from inner to outer corners. Complete your glam look with ultra dramatic lashes. Sweep some mascara across the lashes to complete the glam look. Always apply mascara in a zigzag motion, this helps in avoiding clumps.

Start with your natural foundation. Apply evenly, check for any lines around your jaw bone. Be careful not to get any foundation close to your wedding outfit. Apply a matte powder all over your face; using a powder based product, this will ensure skin looks perfect in the photographs. The shine free oil control loose powder, will help control the oil that usually develops around the ‘T zone’. This will last long & give it a matte look. Add a little blush; pick a peachy pink color that will look natural on you.

Get the deep sensual lips you always wanted! Choose lip liner that blends easily with lipstick for that soft glossy look that looks good in photographs too. Start with a pencil lip liner. Apply from the centre and line outward; make sure you have completely outlined your lips. Lip liners help lip color stay longer and also avoid bleeding. Now fill in your lips with a moisturizing lip color, helps keep lips soft and supple and the pick a color that is most striking. You could always finish with a lip gloss, for that dazzling hi-shine! Thin and small lips look more sensuous with light lip colors while fuller lips can use deep shades.
