Bridal Make-Up Trends That Are All The Rage This Season

There’s a nip in the air, the year is drawing to an end, and the big fat Indian wedding season is upon us once again! It’s time for the brides to decide on how they can ensure that they look their very best on D-day! Of course, the bridal attire needs to be perfect, but what will actually seal the deal on the special day is the bride’s make-up. So, here are the hottest bridal make-up trends to follow if you want to put your best face forward on your big day!

The magic of metallic eyes

This season is all about some shimmer and shine, specially on the eyes. Ditch the ubiquitous black or grey smokey eyes and go for rich jewel tones like metallic greens, glittery golds, shimmery reds or shiny pinks. Add on a generous dose of glitter and let your eyes do all the talking on your wedding day! Also, don’t forget to put on some big, curly fake eyelashes for maximum impact.

Airbrushing to the rescue

Gone are the times of heavy foundation and make-up that cakes up as the evening turns into night. Thanks to the airbrush technique of face make-up, getting a light and natural look is not too difficult anymore! The airbrush helps in spraying the make-up lightly on the skin, without having to use brushes or sponges, thus ensuring that it creates an even, light and natural appearance on your face. What more can a bride ask for?

Go bold on the lips

It’s the night when you must pucker up in style, as your lip color needs to complement your ensemble and add to its beauty. You can flaunt a shade that strikes a bright contrast to your outfit – like a dark plum or wine tint with a green & gold attire – for an eye-catching effect. You can also opt for a complementing shade, such as a vibrant pink with a magenta lehenga or a rich ruby with a red & gold saree. Just keep it bold and beautiful and let your lips make a statement of their own!

High on highlighter

This trend has come straight off the international runways, and is here to make sure you shine bright on your D-day! Get your highlighter game on point by adding the right glow to your cheekbones or your T-zone. Do away with the heavy bronzers, and stick to shimmery illuminators for that soft, yet shiny look. Airbrushing helps in giving your face that natural glow and ensuring that your make-up lasts all night long!

You can head over to your nearest Club Salon outlet to get the perfect bridal make-up done, while incorporating all these happening trends in your final look, and look your bridal best on the big day!

 

Right Foundation

 

Wondering how to pick the right foundation?

Choosing the right foundation can be one of the trickiest jobs until we give you an overall idea how to go about it. So let’s get started:

You’ve to consider 3 things to decide how to choose foundation shade:-

  1. Skin Type
  2. Shade
  3. Coverage

Starting with the Skin type, the right foundation for your skin would depend on:

1. Normal Skin: – You can use just about any foundation from mineral powder to tinted moisturizer; depending on your required coverage & shade.

2. Dry Skin: – You need the added moisture in your product. The best ones for dry skin are oil-based foundations.Look for words like hydrating & moisturizing while looking for a product for dry skin.

3. Oily Skin:- An oily skin secretes enough oil on its own so use only an oil-free liquid foundation or moisturizers. Use a pressed powder after your liquid foundation to set it right.

4. Aging Skin:- If you notice signs like wrinkles, fine lines & probably a little saggy loose skin, don’t get freaked out and start opting for a heavy coverage foundation. It will just worsen things. Choose a medium coverage product with light reflecting pigments that will make you glow naturally.

5. Acne Prone skin: – Go for ones which have ‘salicylic acid’ listed in their ingredients as this will keep your pores & frequent breakouts at bay & also make sure it is an oil-free product, though it can be powder or liquid.

 

 

Choose your shade by matching the color to your jawline: Since it’s between your face and neck (the two places that the foundation should match), it’s your best bet. If the shades of your face & neck are slightly different, attempt to find the right foundation that’s in between.

 

How to Choose Foundation Shade According to Coverage:

  • Sheer –This is the lightest coverage for those people who want to just even out their skin tone & have a natural look.
  • Medium –These foundations are thicker in consistency and provide some coverage for people with blemishes, discolorations or other minor imperfections.
  • Full– This helps erase severe imperfections such as acne scars. Also it’s the best form of foundation to use for photo shoots or for occasions like wedding etc.

 

Application Tips 

  1. Never apply foundation to un-moisturized skin. If your skin is on the drier side, you’ll also want to exfoliate prior to applying any products.
  2. Warm the foundation in the palm of your hand, and then sweep it across your face and neck using clean fingers, a foundation brush or a beauty blender.
  3. When you’re applying foundation, don’t forget about the spot where your jaw line meets your neck! Make sure your face and neck match by blending the foundation into the top of your neck as well.
