• Try to stick to the classic look and avoid the trends as it will fade away soon.
• Use golden-toned concealers and bases in your makeup.
• Bronzing powder to warm your skin tone.
Make your foundation stay for a longer period  by applying foundation primer gel. Also, apply a bit of loose powder to prevent excess shine.
• To apply color to the areas of face like cheeks, nose bridge and forehead use bristle brush. You can also lightly dust the neck and chest area to get an even look.
• Try to include lighter and natural colors in your makeup as they won’t make you look washed out. Always display your natural radiance instead of bright colors.


• Never go for wax and facials before the wedding. Every bride-to-be needs a five day off before wedding day.
• Avoid talc based powder foundation as it oxidizes fast and darkens your face quickly which can make you look ugly.
