Most common Bridal Makeup Mistakes


For the benefit of all brides, we compile the most common bridal beauty mistakes so that you take every care to avoid them.  So that your wedding album looks just as great as you !


  •  Headache already!

To get the perfect bridal look, brides sometimes tend to overlook the discomfort a new hairstyle may bring. Severe updo, side-swept hair, French braid, puffy curls… a girl who isn’t comfortable with any of these hairstyles may opt for one of these styles on her wedding day. The numerous pins, sprays and gels to keep the hairstyle in place can really leave you exhausted. To have fun at your wedding, choose a stylish but a comfortable hairstyle.






  •  Running Mascara!

Weddings are an emotional affair. Water-proof makeup is a must for brides. Be it the foundation, concealer, eyeliner or mascara, whatever brand/s you choose, make sure that you invest in a good kit of water-resistant makeup items. And as a precaution, always keep wet tissues and blotting paper handy for any emergency that might occur


  • Where is my lipstick!

After going  through  long hours, the never ending greetings, and the endless smiles at your wedding , your picture-perfect makeup would be needing touch-ups at regular intervals. Despite tall claims by your makeup artist that the makeup will last for the entire length of the evening, makeup usually loses its sheen quicker than that. Please carry with you a little blush and lipstick to avoid giving the washed-out look on photographs. Ask a bridesmaid to carry around the emergency bridal beauty makeup kit.



  • Mistake 4: Redness and patchy skin…

Brides sometimes end up going for last-minute cleansing, peeling and facial just before the wedding. The heavy bridal makeup immediately after this leaves the skin irritated and patchy. It is a well-known fact that the afterglow of facials comes to effect only after a few days. We therefore advise that you go for facial cleansing 3-5 days prior to the wedding, and not just a day before


  • Revenge of the Heels !!

A pair of glittering golden heels is almost a necessity for every Indian bride. But the long hours at the wedding can be hard on a bride. Instead of a 6-inch heel, opt for a more comfortable height that would look equally good on you. And always keep a pair of flats as an alternative, especially when you step on the dance floor to actually enjoy the wedding.



  • Lipliner darker than the Lipstick !


No matter what, please don’t use a darker lip liner with a lighter shade of lipstick! Almost 70% brides wear a dark (bordering on black) lip liner with a maroon lipstick. Go pink or peach or sheer red. And no glossy pouts either. Stick to mattes or creamy lipsticks.








  • Lighter Foundation

Every Indian girl is trying to be a Gori-Chitti  bride. Though it doesn’t mean you go opting for lighter foundations. Steer clear of foundations with spf because they catch the flash making you appear atleast 5 shades whiter than you actually look.



  • Sparkling Beauty


While glitter is good for evening parties, too much glitter can totally spoil the bride’s makeup. Limit glitter only to the eyes and avoid on the face as Indian weddings are pretty long and tiring and the glitter looks bad once the rest of the makeup subsides in few hours.
