Unlike European or Australian, ‘Asian’ is an umbrella term which includes Korean, Chinese, Indian, Russian and many more. Thus, when we talk about bridal make up for Asian women, it is more than we think we can cover in this article. Make up for an Asian woman is completely different from make up for a Caucasian or an Afro-American woman. What remains common, however, is that for all brides you need to ensure that the make up looks simple and yet bring out the best of the bride on her wedding day.
Although, make up is something which has to be customised for each woman, yet here are a few tips on how to apply make up to an Asian bride:
Foundation for Asian Brides
Asian women can have different tones of skins, depending on where are they originally from. Talking to a professional can help you choose the perfect shade of foundation for you, to look stunning on your wedding day. You can choose to have your foundation as liquid or powder or cream base.
Conceal All The Flaws
Use a concealer to hide all the flaws that your skin might have. May it be a dark spot, or dark circles due to stress, you can hide it all behind a smudge of a good concealer.
Eye Make Up
Irrespective of the nationality of an Asian woman, most of them have nice almond shaped eyes. Thus, you have an awesome chance of playing up this area. Let your makeup artist suggest the shades of eye shadow and eye liners help you look best. Also take care as you highlight your eyebrow bones. Do not overdo your eye makeup. Remember it should look simple. Keep in mind that bridal make up is about making you look as natural as possible, hiding all flaws and making you look good in the pictures, that are going to last a lifetime.
Bridal Make Up For Lips
Asian women, again, have fuller lips to thin ones. If you have fuller lips, then line your lips on the edge and do not go out of it. If you have thinner lips then line it a little out of the lip edges. This will make your lips look thicker than they are. Then fill in your lips with the shade that you have chosen. After lining your lips and filling it with colour, lightly blot your lips. This would take off the excess of the colour from your lips. Then apply a little powder on your lips.
However, you must remember that it is just not all right to have a great makeup artist get you ready for the big day. You must also take care of yourself before the day arrives. A proper diet, drinking plenty of water and ample rest would make you look your best and the make up would enhance your beauty and charm. Start doing facial six months before the big day and get your eyebrows done about two days before the same.
