The Perfect Bridal Glow Before Your Wedding

Every bride wants to look picture-perfect on her big day—four of the industry’s best bridal beauty experts tell us how to make that happen. While they don’t promise to banish those last-minute jitters, these well sketched-out methods will ensure that you don’t face last minute breakouts, puffiness, hair horrors and other unpleasant surprises. Think like a beauty editor and get a mood board in place. “Seek inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram to save makeup looks, but don’t blindly follow trends,” advises celebrity makeup artists. Assess your beauty style and choose an artist who has similar aesthetic values. Discuss and share pictures to ensure that both of you are on the same page. Swap black liner with brown or blue for day functions if you want to try something different. Just don’t veer too far away from your signature—you want to look like yourself in your wedding photos. Less is more when curating your vanity trousseau. All products come with expiry dates, so ask your makeup artist for tips about those that you don’t need. Don’t just follow trends; make them work for you. If you want to try the trend of the moment, glitter, take it one step at a time and don’t overdo it. Elevate your French manicure with glitter tips, line your eyes with liquid shimmer liner, or upgrade smoky eye makeup with a wash of shimmer. The nutrition team at Dr Muffi Mumbai curates an anti-anxiety diet plan. Swap coffee with herbal tea as caffeine interferes with sleep, dehydrates skin and can worsen anxious feelings.                                                                                                        Fill your plate with blueberries, avocados, broccoli, red peppers and strawberries. Ingredients rich in antioxidants will help control pre-wedding jitters and mood swings. Low magnesium levels, besides weakening bones, can trigger headaches and induce feelings of nervousness. For nerves of steel, up your intake of legumes, greens like spinach and edamame, and nuts like almonds, cashews and peanuts. Embrace an inside-out approach to beauty and start with collagen and Vitamin C supplements. Within a month, your skin will appear visibly smoother and brighter. Headed for a dress fitting or family brunch? Never leave the house without sunblock. Whether it’s sunny or cloudy, remember to re-apply every two to three hours to avoid sunburn, tanning and sunspots. If the damage has been done, apply aloe vera gel or cold rose water. To enjoy smooth skin days without the hassle of waxing appointments, schedule your laser hair reduction sessions two to three months before the wedding. Pre-wedding indulgence can be quite daunting. Don’t get lost in salon menus. Get started with a pore-cleansing facial that gently exfoliates and deep cleanses the epidermal layer, resulting in a softer, more luminous, complexion. Take cues from Korea’s triple cleanse technique to remove deep-seated impurities and all traces of long-lasting make-up. Start with a cleansing tissue, followed by an oil-based cleanser. As a final step, use a cleansing foam.
