Ini­tial Dis­cus­sions...

A The first thing is to make the bride com­fort­able and un­der­stand her mind­set. I let her talk about her at­tire, jew­ellery, the look she has in mind and, to top it all, her er­ratic schedule and how stressed she is. Based on her in­puts and my ob­ser­va­tion about her fa­cial fea­tures, taste, out­fit, time of the day of the wed­ding and life­style, I cre­ate a look in my head and dis­cuss the same with her.

On Trial Ses­sions...

A Per­son­ally, I re­ally don’t think a trial ses­sion is a good idea for a bride as it could con­fuse an al­ready stressed bride-to-be. Since she wouldn’t be wear­ing her bri­dal out­fit and jew­ellery dur­ing the trial, she won’t get a proper idea about the en­tire look and this could scare her.

Skin Prep Time...

A Skin­care should be on top of the to-do list. If the can­vas is not clean, the paint­ing can never turn into a mas­ter­piece. Skin­care of the bride-tobe should be­gin as early as she gets en­gaged, and this must be­come a life­style change. De­cid­ing the D-Day Look... A The fac­tors to keep in mind to de­sign per­fect look for the bride are:

The fa­cial fea­tures: Shape of the face, jaw­line, fore­head, nose, shape of the ears, eyes, etc. This helps in de­cid­ing the make-up tech­nique, e.g. con­tour­ing, high­light­ing or cor­rec­tion Taste of the bride-to-be: It’s im­por­tant to know how the bride-tobe wants her look to be. Time of the day: This de­ter­mines the make-up base and the colour palette The out­fit and jew­ellery: These help in de­cid­ing the colour com­bi­na­tion of the make-up, hairdo, etc.

Any D-Day Disas­ters?

A Hope­fully, no! Aways carry a few safety pins for any un­ex­pected wardrobe mal­func­tion, a hand­ful of bobby pins and U-pins for any hair fall­outs, pressed pow­der that matches your skin and a pow­der blush as well.
