The Mon­soon Bride

While mon­soon wed­dings do amp up the ro­mance fac­tor, a sudden down­pour can lead to bleed­ing kohl, smudgy lips, and oily skin—a not-so-flat­ter­ing look for the bride. Thank­fully, it is pos­si­ble to avoid this night­mar­ish sce­nario. PRIYANKA RA­VANI PUNAMIYA ex

Hir­ing a pro­fes­sional make-up artist is only the be­gin­ning. While de­sign­ing your look for the big day, keep th­ese tips in mind dur­ing the dis­cus­sions. Come rain, storm or sun­shine, your make-up has to stay in­tact and flaw­less, es­pe­cially for those hun­dreds of pic­tures the pho­tog­ra­pher will make you pose for.


Make sure your make-up artist knows that you aren’t too keen on us­ing cream-based prod­ucts on your face. The hu­mid­ity in the air, com­bined with the oily, heavy and greasy fin­ish often as­so­ci­ated with th­ese prod­ucts, will make you look like a badly-dec­o­rated cake. Prod­ucts with a wa­ter-based foun­da­tion will let your skin breathe, and your face won’t look patchy by the end of the cer­e­mony. P.S. Don’t ex­per­i­ment on the wed­ding day with prod­ucts or styles you are not sure of. Stick to what you’ve dis­cussed and don’t for­get that min­i­mal­ism is in.


Your skin can be ex­tra oily dur­ing the rainy sea­son, and this can cause the make-up to run, mak­ing it look as if your face is melt­ing off! To pre­vent this, your skin needs to be prepped. This is where oil-free primer is your best friend (other than the best friend that is your brides­maid). Pre make-up tip (30 min­utes prior): 5-10 min­utes be­fore the make-up artist shows up, rub ice cubes wrapped in a cloth on your face. This tech­nique helps con­trol sweat­ing caused by hu­mid­ity.


Matte lipsticks don’t smudge and, more im­por­tantly, they also don’t stain your teeth—a very im­por­tant thing to con­sider since those wed­ding pic­tures will be around for life! Also, the matte fin­ish cuts out the need to con­stantly touch up your lip colour dur­ing the cer­e­mony, giv­ing you a pic­tureper­fect pout that lasts all day.
