The Do's and Don'ts of Indian Bridal Hair and Makeup

The time of big fat Indian weddings is here, time for families to unite and celebrate the special and the most auspicious day when a lady becomes a wife, a man becomes a husband.

Undoubtedly, the ‘bride-to-be’ has all eyes on her, and that is when she dreams to look the prettiest. It is a wise decision to reach out to the experts for a flawless look. It takes an experienced makeup artist to bring out the look you had been looking for. Bridal hair and makeup bring a lot of difference in the overall appeal and the outfit the bride carries.

Here are some of the Do’s and Don’t that will help you spot the perfect look on the wedding day:
  • Try the bridal makeup before the day of the wedding in the evening and under artificial lights. Get it done in daylight to know the glitches and skin tone.  It is prefered to get it done at home so that there are chances of getting it tweaked as per the colours to suit your jewellery and outfits. Give in to suggestions offered by others, especially take the bride’s comfort and look in mind.
  • Look for the products that are being used to apply bridal hair & makeup. Good quality products might cost a notch higher but are worth what is paid. Also, make sure it’s not the face only. Ensure it matches your skin’s undertone. Blend it to the extent that it includes your neck and shoulders too. Keep this in mind that the foundation that is used is without SPF. SPF can make the bride’s face look white or flashed out in photography.
  • Book the appointments of facial treatments and waxing a few days before the wedding day.  This will give the skin a chance to recover and also avoid breakouts due to beauty products.
  • While going for the trial session, carry the entire outfit. A black T-shirt will not represent the wedding day look and therefore will not be able to translate the impact of the final look fully. Do not forget to take dupatta/chunni to hair trial as well, especially if it is a ritual to have the head covered during the ceremony. Many a fabulous hairstyle succumbs to the weight of an embroidered chunni, so the hairstyle has to be pretty, as well as functional.
  • In the end, when it is all about the look, there should be no compromise in the professional who is doing it. Look for well trained and experienced artist who has a vast portfolio and has undergone training in bridal makeup course from a reputed institute. Scroll through the work and state the look in mind. After negotiation, understanding and comfort on the makeup artist’s working style, choose the one!
Pearl Academy is one of the most upbeat institute propagating new trends to its students while giving them a window to experiment and try new techniques. They are not only versed with the aesthetic ways but also have an extension that lets them practise with experienced artists and fashion bloggers. There is another vertical in this section that allows them to enrol for celebrity makeup course. This is a good pick for the ones who wish to enter the glam world with the frills and fancies around celebrities.
