Make Up Magic
Too much of bling and glitter can be frowned upon. So overtly dramatic make up IS A big no at Indian weddings now a days. Gloss or a touch of shimmer works really well. Pastel shades with a touch of gloss is the latest, keeping the foundation base subtle and matte textured, blended and radiant as opposed to the caked up look which existed earlier. A foundation with a hint of glow is in vogue. Eyes are dramatic with bold colours while lips are nude, natural and glossy. To look your best go for colours which complement your skin tone and goes with your wedding attire at the same. Nude, pink, shimmery bronze and red palettes are best suited for fair skinned women, while maroon, red and earthy hues for the wheatish complexion and deep mauves for dusky women. Bright pink blush on when used sparingly completes the look. Gold is back and big this season. Gold combined with maroon is also a good option. The eyes should be muted and chic for the day time while for the evening you can go dramatic with smokey eyes. The idea is to highlight and contour your features you want to stand out or hide with a good brand of make up.
Choose your hair stylist carefully, as a hairdresser can make or break your look. Pony is back in fashion. The glam brigade today loves it and so does our modern day brides. Low or high nape ones with antique ornaments pinned at the top or bottom is a good style. An updo looks stylish and neat look wherein every hair strand is not sprayed, pinned and tucked up rather its simply pinned and tousled to give a softer look. The other option is to go for a flowy look, which can be set straight, wavy, tonged for loose curls. The market has a lot of hair accessories in abundance like crystal studded tattoos for hair, Swarovski hair pins, crystal hair clips, sparkle buns, ethnic juda pins, diamonte flowers and so on. All these accessories alongside a good hair do give the glam look and add a feminine touch. If you have short hair, and want long hair in a jiffy, hair extension is at bay. These extensions can be straightened or styled according to the attire.
All this and more goes into the making of an immaculate, glam and attractive bride. Get ready for your big day with these simple ideas in place to let your eyes, smile, hair do the talking!
