It’s your special day. And undoubtedly the most photographed day of your life. These are pictures that will live to tell the story of your moments of merriment long after you are gone. Or after your skin is wrinkled by age. Many times we have seen brides ‘self-destruct’ on their D-days. Even after spending fortunes on makeup artists. Well here are some concepts you should know about make up before your big-day!

Trying new things
Your wedding day isn't the time to experiment with red lipstick or smoky eyes for the first time. "Choose tones that you feel comfortable with and most like yourself.

Don’t get Caught Up in Beauty Trends
Ever looked at your parents and grandparents pictures and go like hell no! And the photo owner grins in embarrassment as she confesses. “That is what was on in our days.” No, this shouldn’t be you. Do not be moved by trends. These trends change but the pictures will stay. Choose make up not because it is the ‘in thing’ but because it bring out the jewel in you.

Do a Makeup Trial
It's an extra cost but a worthy one. Schedule a makeup trial before the wedding or any d day. "If you aren't happy with the first trial, this will buy you time to try out another option. Giving you room for perfection on the grand day too.

The eye factor

When we talk about the eyes we are talking about lashes eyebrows and the like. Fake Lashes are beautiful but can also ruin your day. Many brides have often complained about the discomfort caused by the lashes. So we advise you try them on before your D-day and make your stand. At times mascara can do the job do just fine. The eye brows! Please advise your makeup artist not to overdo this! Many brides have often come out looking like they are wearing black tape on their faces! Totally not worth the second look. Avoid this

Lastly avoid too much glitter! You are a bride, not a disco ball!
