The positive outcome of novel coronavirus is the change in the consumer mindsets about beauty, grooming and self-care. Today, people are equally concerned about how they feel from within apart from outer beauty. It is indeed true, happy brides are the prettiest!
Highlighting on the skincare and bridal make-up look, Ojas Rajani, Celebrity Make-up artist and Founder, Ojas Rajani Makeup & Hair Academy says, “Hydration is the key to flawless skincare and make-up. If the skin is dry and patchy, the foundation doesn’t blend well and the make-up looks cakey and heavy.”
She further emphasizes on using ice cubes, hydrating face packs and lubricating creams followed by water-based primers and foundations to give full and long-lasting coverage and hydrated skin so that make-up looks creamy and dewy.
Pre-Wedding Skincare Regimen:
Make-up is pure magic that enhances your facial features and beauty. It’s like your second skin that makes you more confident on the social front. However, the hectic schedules most individuals have these days has led to various skincare woes like acne, dry and itchy skin.
