  1. Preparation Tips for Indian Bridal Makeup Ideas

    • Get all your skin treatments like facial and bleach did a couple of weeks before the wedding day.
    • Match your makeup with your wedding wear. Avoid using shades that will highly contrast the colors of your bridal dress.
    • Get a trial from your make-up artist to avoid last-minute disappointment.
    • Opt for waterproof makeup because in our tropical climate you may end up sweating even under an Air-conditioned environment. Test your makeup before you use it on your wedding day to check if the brand suits your skin or not.Preparation Tips for Indian Bridal Makeup Ideas

      Face Makeup Trends

      • Contouring has changed the makeup game completely. It is a MUST-DO to achieve a photographic look. Use a highlighter instead of shimmer to avoid extra sparkle on your face.

      • The airbrush makeup technique has got its way out from a runway to the bridal green room in the past year. The makeup is sprayed onto the face through an airbrush instead of a makeup sponge or brush. This makeup technique is trending widely with it being the easiest, long-lasting, and most hygienic. And this is one of the best Indian bridal makeup ideas.
