  1. Pre Wedding Grooming

    • To make skin glow naturally, you need to drink an adequate amount of water daily to keep yourself hydrated. Also, avoid eating oily food.
    • Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing should be done regularly. This will keep your skin glowing and youthful. Maintain that glow with some homemade fruit facial packs with mashed papaya or strawberries.
    • Those irritating dark circles which have caused due to a lack of your sleep, need to be reduced by getting enough sleep and by massaging your eyes with almond oil every night.
    • Take care of your lips, each night by applying a generous coat of lip balm.
    •If you want to get your hair cut, don’t do it right before the wedding, because it doesn’t set properly. Give it at least a couple of weeks before the wedding. However, discuss with your hairstylist.

    To avoid last-minute sadness, take a prior appointment with your makeup artist and take a trial makeup and get yourself clicked by a photographer, so you can avoid last-minute errors on the wedding day.


    This day has finally arrived and you have to look your best, as all eyes will be on you. Think how your better half will feel when you will get compliments for your look, he must feel proud, no?

  2. Indian Bridal Makeup Tips for the D-day

  • Face Makeup

  • Get your eyebrows done one week before the wedding day. Getting it done on the same day shows visible redness & irritation that could spoil your look for the day.
  • After moisturizing your face, use a primer and blend it well, this will keep the makeup intact for long hours. Use a highlighter on the higher planes of the face, such as the cheeks bones, the center of the forehead. Take some blush on a blush brush and pat the excess off.
  • Apply foundation with a sponge or a brush, the less you can touch your face, the better. Put concealer after foundation only.
  • For a natural makeup look, try a cream blush.

  • Eyes

The eyes are the windows of the soul, so why not let them speak volumes with some makeup looks up your sleeve?  Simple eyeshadows or a tinge of color can vamp up your eyes just like that fairytale makeover. Indian brides love gold eye makeup since it goes well with their red or colorful lehengas, cholies, or heavy saris. So, play it safe and go with this color. Paint your eyelids with a gold or peachy pink shade, you can also use golden eyeshadow instead of silver for the brow bones.

  • Lips

Use a perfect lipstick shade that matches your outfit for that smile to look prettier. Go for dark red or maroon shade for bigger and fuller lips and peachy pink or light pink for thin lips. The thin-lipped bride can apply lip plumper instead of lip gloss, whereas large-lipped people can use simple lip-gloss, concentrating more on the center of the lip.  Keep your and lip size in focus, apply darker lipstick if you have big lips and lighter if you have sharp thin lips.


  • Hairstyle

Keep in mind that all hairstyles do not suit all face shapes. You must know the shape of your face before selecting a hairstyle. Like, if your face is square-shaped, with a wide jawline and cheekbones, then you must choose a style that covers the sides of your face for a slimmer look. Similarly, you can also draw attention from a pointy chin by styling the hair in waves all over. A good hairstylist will make that easy for you. Keep in mind these amazing Indian bridal makeup tips for your wedding.


 Complement the dress with your looks: Your hairstyle and make-up should complete the look. Not compete! When in doubt, choose simplicity.

Hope this much of the basic knowledge about Indian Bridal Makeup tips would make you able to do perfect and amazing makeup for an Indian ethnic bride with modern glam.

Happy Wedding to you!
