BRIDAL MAKEUP

How a bride looks at her wedding is as important as what she wears. That is why picking the right bridal makeup artist is so important. The right ones understand your requirements and are adept at customizing diverse looks deftly to match your outfits, flatter your best facial features and suit the theme of the functions.

We can help you select the best bridal makeup artists according to your preferences and budget. Classified under the category of WeddingSutra Favorites, our list of handpicked professionals will give you the looks of your dreams and transform you into a gorgeous bride on your D-day.

TYPES OF BRIDAL MAKEUP

HD Makeup

Widely used on the visages of TV and film actors, HD or High Definition makeup is a technique which has become very popular with brides as it hides spots, lines, and creases on the face with precision and is extremely long-lasting. Having a more sheer and natural appeal, HD makeup ensures that your face looks young, radiant and flawless for hours, especially in front of a HD camera lens.

Airbrush Makeup

The airbrush makeup technique is practised using an airbrush gun that sprays liquid makeup on the face of the bride instead of the usual application done with brushes and sponge. It gives a smooth and flawless finish, but does tend to look a little heavy in humid weather. However, it perfectly covers any blemishes and spots on dry skin without looking cakey.

Regular Traditional Makeup

The conventional technique of applying the base and other beauty products with blending brushes and sponges sometimes ends up in makeup looking cakey, which then looks unnatural on HD images. Highly used before the advent of HD or airbrush makeup, this conventional technique is slowly losing its appeal among beauty savvy brides.
