Every bride considers her wedding day to be the most important and auspicious day of her life. She seldom dreams of her elegant and fabulous wedding where she is the best looking of them all. It is a day when she wants to dress herself and make herself feel the most important and most beautiful.

This is the day when brides look for a bridal makeup that accentuates her features to make her look like a princess. With bridal make up the attempt is not to change the bride’s strong features but only shape them up. This does not call for strong or thick makeup, but very subtle uses of color that bring out positive points in her look. Simple yet elegant looking makeup always makes a bride look perfect on her wedding day. The makeup has to compliment the dress and the color of the dress, the same goes for her hairstyle as well.

Bridal makeup is generally soft and very romantic. Keeping your makeup simple yet making you look good is an art, and it is therefore imperative that you choose the right makeup colors and formulas. There are quite a few makeup artists and beauty parlours who use a lot of makeup. They generally try and make use of a thick coat of powder or foundation creams.

The ideal way of getting the right look is by choosing a foundation cream base color that is only a couple of shades lighter than the original skin color.

For the best wedding photo shots, make sure you choose the right foundation color. If you are to choose something that is natural and the best, then mineral makeup should be your first choice. This will last you throughout the say and works positively with your skin as well. After applying the foundation you can continue with loose matte powder to ease out your skins look.

The next on the list should be a medium based color that you apply on you lids. After this you can choose a darker shade that is applied on the crease. Once you are done, blend the colors to make it look almost one, yet giving its own distinguishing look.
