1. Pin Your look

Sometimes, picking your style can be overwhelming. A good trick is to find looks which call out to you. A really good platform to find looks which gravitate towards you is Pinterest and of course, Google is another one. Now that you have these, the next step is to examine all your saves / pins and see if there is something common in all of them – A certain blush, dewy skin, long lashes? Whatever it may be, understand and analyse them well, they are going to uncover your base and set the path for the look you want.

There are three key bridal looks which generally cover, well an enormous chunk of makeup variations:

A. The Natural and Softer Look

This is the kind which usually has a – medium coverage, neat and brushed eyebrows, dewy skin, nude or a lighter shade of pink lips, again peaches or a baby pinkish blush, natural and earthier tones – iridescent eyeshadow, false eyelashes which are not too long and give a more natural look with a light eyeliner and highlighted cheekbones.

2. Match your Make up to the Venue and Theme of the Wedding

If you have managed to already decide and close in on your venue and the (this is optional) theme, do give building your bridal beauty look a thought regarding how you can match or combine the two together. Your venue can act as a great provider for cues on the type of bridal look you should naturally end up picking – be it a beach, the mountains or even your own house!

Here’s an example: consider your wedding is happening on a beach, it’d be a great match for a dewy highlighter, a touch of bronzer, and a soft, pink lip. On the other hand, a vintage style wedding could match perfectly with a vibrant red lipstick and a bold cat-eye.
