In the Indian Sub-Continent, it’s always wedding season, and the beauty industry knows it. With every girl wanting to look like the models in the magazines and the girls in the movies, at least on their wedding day, there are a lot of things that could go wrong, especially on wedding day. So we’ve come up with a few tips to make sure that your beautician does not mess up, at least your make up, on your big day.
We all know that one of the main reason brides start to resemble circus clowns more than themselves on their wedding day is because of the improper application of foundation or base. Brides have a tendency to, due to the strong influence of Western beauty standards, want to make their skin tones as light as possible and end up effectively giving a gaudy, almost fake mannequin like appearance to the beholder. To avoid this, stick to foundation shades that are close to your original skin color because believe me, you look most beautiful when you’re you, not trying to imitate someone else.

We’ve saved the most important for last, color combinations. Because you can get the perfect hair, dress, winged eyeliner, and manicure but if your make-up artist gets the complimenting colors mixed up, you could look like a disaster. We understand that not everybody is well versed in the art of color combination so here’s a basic idea; make sure your eye make-up compliments your dress colors, but keep your lip shade one that goes best with your skin tone. Shades of red and pink never go wrong when it comes to lip color, so use the as your staples. All in all, the best piece of make-up you can wear is a smile, so be sure to use it as often as you can!
