Video Tutorial : Dramatic Indian Bridal Makeup


Hey everyone!

The much-awaited Sultry, Dramatic Indian Bridal Makeup Tutorial video is now up! I’d shown you a preview a month back and never got the time to edit and upload this with the wedding and shifting in the between! Since the first 2 videos I did featured softer looks, I decided to a dramatic, full smokey eye/red lips look for the 3rd look.

Hope you like the tutorial, don’t forget to comment and subscribe!

[note color=”#FFEECA”]I quite like a dramatic look and I think many Indian brides can carry off this look. But if you’re wearing very heavy jewelry/outfit, I’d recommend going less heavy with the makeup to balance everything out!

    Hey ankita!……do u ever mix your foundation with a little moisturizer?….mine turns out to b very very OTT if i don’t although i’ve got the exact shade matching my complexion….its the Natural Tan shade from the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Cream range…also i discovered something…when i applied a little of this foundation on my lips and then went in with filling with the lip liner and the lipstick…my lipstick lasted really really long……and as far as the lipstick shade goes i used the Lโ€™Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Secrets โ€“ 724 Rachida Burgundy . This too is an excellent shade and would look really good on Indian beauties.
    Gorgeous makeup by the way…;) always!
