Indian Bridal Make-Up Inspirational Ideas and Tips

Saturday, January 9, 2010

An Indian bride typically adorns her hands and feet with henna (mehendi) a day before her wedding. She has her bridal make-up done on the day of the wedding itself.

I have heard of brides choosing their make-up artist by recommendations of relatives and friends, based on word of mouth. That is a very dangerous way of picking a make-up artist. Just because a relative or a friend had a good experience with that particular make-up artist, it does not mean you would also similarly have a positive experience. Too often, brides end up with make-up that is not at all suited for them. But since it is done on the day itself, there is no option to change make-up artists or have them try something new - what if the something "new" was worse?!

Therefore, it is always a good idea to have a make-up session with your make-up artistbefore the wedding day. This allows you to observe the make-up artist at work, point out what you like and what you don't. The last thing you want is for your face to look overdone, like poor Mindy Kaling earlier this year(January 2009). The make-up artist who did her up should be ashamed of destroying her pretty face!
