Every bride wants to look her very best on her big day. Whether it’s a flawless base, beautiful eyes or the perfect lips, she wants to look and feel like a million dollars. This is why I understand that it can be daunting to decide on your final look, especially if you’re not used to wearing much make up on a daily basis. However, the best piece of advice I can give you, is to choose a look that you feel comfortable with, which enhances your natural beauty; not something that makes you look like a completely different person altogether.
While many brides traditionally opt for heavy contour, defined winged eye liner and traditional red lips, this is not your only option. Yes you need a look that makes you stand out from the crowd, but you still need to feel like yourself.
With this in mind, I’ve hand picked some gorgeous looks from Bollywood style icon Sonam Kapoor that are ideal for any bride-to-be, whether it be for the civil or religious ceremony, or evening reception. Sonam’s dedicated glam squad are some of the best in the business and her looks are absolutely spot on 99% of the time. So, take a look and be sure to suggest these to your make up artist when you head over to your next trial.
Before you attend a makeup trial do your research by making a note of different make up looks from the runway, red carpet and editorial. There are so many options to choose from and this will give your artist a better understanding of the look you want to achieve
Look at different celebrities who have similar features to yours and the same skin tones. This will help to determine which looks will suit you better and the shades of colours you should opt for
For those brides looking for something fresh, soft and elegant this subtle winged eye, paired with a nude pink lip and cheeks will bring out your natural beauty.
For those who love the classic red lip, opt for a slight blue undertone. Keep the cheeks looking fresh with a light blush and avoid harsh contour. This will make you look younger and more natural. Perfect for a ceremony as well as for an evening reception.
If you’ve opted for a traditional white dress for your civil ceremony, avoid harsh winged eye liner and choose light shimmery colours with highlights and a dewy base to add an effortless glow to the look.
For those who love a dramatic smokey eye, the look below is perfect for an evening reception. Blend and build olive shades and charcoals, with a light dust of gold pigment on top to add a bit of sparkle. Finish with a nude lip and soft contoured cheeks.
