Brides are always looking for novel ways to glam up their routines. From actresses to the runway, millennial brides leave no stone unturned to leave a lasting impact and give their best. Brides nowadays are going that extra mile to make the most of whatever comes their way. Weddings hold a special place in a bride’s heart and why shouldn’t it? Playful colours, luscious lips, shimmer and blush — they don’t shy away from giving a twist to their make-up. It’s their big day, so why not? Wedding Affair brings to you four quirky trends that each and every bride should look out for.
Lit From Within Skin Is In
This trend has found a soft spot among all the young brides. Embracing your natural glow has never been this cool. For this look, needless to say, taking care of your skin comes first. Make sure to use a face wash that gently cleanses your skin without stripping it of moisture. Good skincare products are a must. After all, achieving that dewy glow calls for a good skincare regimen. Vitamin C serums, hyaluronic acid, and the like will kill two birds with one stone. Not only will these products ensure a glowing skin but also provide anti-ageing benefits. Vitamin C serum increases your cell turnover and minimises hyperpigmentation and scarring caused by acne. Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, hydrates the skin from within and gives it a healthy glow..
These two ingredients can cause the face to become photo-sensitive. So, use a good sunscreen that protects your skin without making it oily. After the skincare part comes make-up. If you are looking to embrace the natural glow, try skipping full-coverage foundations and opt for sheer coverage. This will lend your face a lighter and fresher look. To give your face that 440 watts dazzle, invest in make-up products that takes care of your skincare woes as well.
Glossy makeup has the mighty power to literally make your skin glisten. The good news is that the thoughtful formulation of the products used makes it possible to adorn this look without the appearance of excessive oil on your face. The specialised formula makes the look easily wearable for an extended period of time.
To achieve a glossy look, start off with a cleanser and moisturise your skin well. After this, just dab on some lip gloss of your choice on your eyelids. You can also pick an eyeshadow and mix it with sheer gloss to get the shiny eye make-up look. Now, use sheen highlighting to create those enviable creamy cheeks. Skip your concealer and opt for a foundation stick for intelligent coverage instead. Top it off with a liquid illuminator applied on the top of your cheekbones in upward strokes. Go one step ahead and aim for your temple section, the bridge of your nose and your brow bone. Coming to the lips, scrub your lips before applying anything. Use a gel lip liner to add definition to your lips before applying your favourite lipstick.
Bright And Playful Eyes
Give a rest to the tried and tested neutral palette and add a pop of colour to your make-up, starting with the eyes. And, what’s better than neon colours to embrace hues with open arms. If you don’t want to go too far, a bold liner and colourful mascara is the way to go. A smoky bright-coloured eyeshadow will seal the deal for any bride who wants to give this trend a try. Commit to a fun new shade as you experiment with the best that the world of colours has to offer. You can either choose a colour that contrasts your outfit or complements it.
Another way to approach this trend is to use a similar vibrant shade on the face in different ways i.e. using the same hue on your eyes, cheeks and lips. This technique uses our face as a canvas to paint a beautiful picture which will leave everyone awestruck. You can either opt for a pinkish hue or any other colour of your choice. This look has spring written all over it. For a night event, add a dash of glitter. This will not only accentuate your beautiful eyes but will also bring out the shining star in you.
