Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life. As the bride you are the center of attention and you want to look your best. Putting time and thought into your Asian bridal makeup will make everything go smoothly and leave you looking gorgeous for your big day.
On your wedding day you want to be the glowing bride and your makeup can help this happen. However, it is important that the guests notice your beauty and not the amount of makeup on your face. Less is often more when it comes to makeup. It is best to use makeup to highlight your best features and discreetly correct the imperfections.
It is best to start planning your makeup and face a few months before your wedding. Use this time to get your skin in good shape. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and begin taking a multivitamin to nourish the skin from the inside out. Get regular facials to condition your skin and it will be radiant on your wedding day.
The correct shaped eyebrow frames your face, so visit a beautician at least a month prior to your wedding to have them shaped and then again a couple of days before the wedding.
Foundation acts to smooth out your complexion and cover any imperfections. Choosing the right foundation when you are going to be photographed is important. Some heavy foundations can make you look pallid in photos, so it is best to stick with a light liquid foundation and then dust a little powder over the top. To really make your skin look healthy apply a moisturizer twenty minutes before the foundation.
In Asian bridal makeup it is all about the eyes. They are made to stand out by applying a neutral shade of eyeshadow to the eyelid and then kajal or kohl to the outer lids. Often these days brides will have eyelash extensions added to accentuate their eyes. Adding a double dash of waterproof mascara is one of the final touches. To make eyeshadow stay in place dust it with a translucent powder.
Since your eyes are made to stand out, it is best to keep the mouth fairly neutral. Moisturize your lips with a lip balm and then line them with a shade of lip color that matches. Fill in your lips with your lip color and add a touch of gloss to the center of the upper and lower lips to make them stand out.
