Rupsi Mishra, Make-up artist
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.
