Countdown to look Gorgeous on your wedding day

We know you're crazy busy choosing wedding planner, invitations, florist, decorators & a honeymoon hot spot. but don't neglect one of the most important tasks of all, getting yourself looking and feeling great.

Wedding day is a onetime event in our lifetime and it is something we fantasize many a times. It’s that very special day where we want each and everything perfect, best and upto our mark. But this strives for perfection sometimes makes us feel stressed out and fearful about any mishaps that may happen on the d day. Don’t worry, because here are some simple bridal make up tips that you can follow on your special day.
Ø  It is always suitable to choose your make up type according to the dress and jewellery that you are going to wear. If they are heavy then, try to keep your make up light and vice-versa.

Ø  Take a look at your clothes and jewellery. Consult with your makeup artist beforehand about the looks which will go with the dress. Select the one which you want to do on the day. Do not go in for any last minute changes.
Ø  If your wedding is planned in winter season, then go for warmer and deeper shades, and if it is a spring/summer wedding, then go for bright and pastel shades.
Ø  Consider the time of the wedding whether it’s day or night, it’s a very important factor to keep in mind when it comes bridal makeup. If you have the ceremonies in the day time, then keep makeup minimal and opt for a more natural look. If you are going for night time wedding, keep the makeup heavy and add more colors.

Ø  To keep your lipstick/ lip color from staining your lips, put a finger in your mouth and close your lips. Pull out the finger; this will take out all excess lip color. 

Ø  Eye makeup can define how natural or dramatic your look is. Lining the tightline with a black pencil liner will make your eyelashes look naturally fuller. Lining your waterline with a nude pencil liner will make your eyes look naturally brighter. Don’t forget to  to synchronize your eye make up with lip make up.

Ø  It is advisable to use pigmented cream foundation in yellow tones and layer it with powder foundation to make the skin look smoother and beautiful when you are photographed.

Ø  Don’t forget to apply foundation on areas like neck, ears and chest. Otherwise, you will seem to have a separately painted face.

Ø  Keep a compact and blotting paper handy as you can touch up your makeup.

Remember the entire ceremony captured in a video and photographs, your makeup is an integral part of getting you ready for the ceremony. After all, you are going to be the center of attraction and hence you should stand out at the ceremony.

Wedding Album Poses - Memories to last forever...

Wedding album is the most important keepsake for a couple. Every couple wants their wedding album to be filled with the most romantic, innovative & beautiful photographs. It's all about capturing a couple's love for each other. Thus, it's a photographer's job to bring the small variations into classic poses. These different styles will bring out the chemistry & warmth that a couple shares Here is something that we thought, should always be a part of the wedding album...

The Classic Sitting Pose
                                    is a must have in any wedding album. The Bride & the Groom have to just sit close to each other, where the bride can wrap her arms around his biceps or the bride resting her head on the groom's shoulder or by both of them slightly tilting their head towards each other. A simple smile on their lips will complete this picture perfect pose :-)

 The Standing Pose
                           unlike the regular stiff body & face expressions... There can be some variations in this classic pose as well. The Photographer can ask the couple to hold hands or the groom can look to the bride when she looks at the camera. The particular variation will add an interesting dash of romance & passion to the wedding album.

The Hug Pose
                    is one of the most romantic & sensuous wedding poses that a couple can have in their wedding album. For this pose, the bride & the groom can stand facing each other. The Groom wraps his hands around the bride's waist as they look into each other's eyes. The Bride can rest her head on the Groom's chest & put her hand on his shoulder. The pose will add a lot of charm & oomph to the album

The Forehead Touch Pose
                   where the bride can tilt her head up & the groom can get his head down so that the foreheads meet, either standing or sitting. A beautiful variation can be ' a kiss on the forehead pose ' where the groom bends to kiss his bride's forehead. Use of interesting lighting & backdrop can add more charm to this pose.

Lift Your Bride Pose
                  will add best moments to the wedding album. A very romantic moment shared by them. In this pose, the Groom lifts his Bride in his arms. They can either look in each other's eyes or share an infectious smile.

We suggest that if possible, a couple should rehearse few poses before their wedding day to get comfortable with each other & the camera. They will prove extremely helpful.

So it's time now to say CHEESE!!
