To strike the best note, the right foundation is most important. Highlight your cheekbones in a blush that best suits your complexion. With a generous use of mascara and a hint of gold and pink shimmer, accentuate your twinkling eyes. Finally, dab a little lip gloss over your pink-shaded lips. Tie your hair in a bun and accessorise it with pretty gold embellishments.
Accentuate your cheek bones with a rosy shade to enjoy a majestic glow. Apply a shade of green to the corner of the eyes along with some gold shimmer and mascara. A metallic colour for the lips with a dab of gold would an extra touch of glamour. Let the hair be straightened and tied in to a traditional plait, adequately beautified with hair accessories.
The exotic appeal of the Tamil bride is further heightened by use of subtle tones of bronze and maroon. With a golden base for the eyes, blend in shades of green and silver to draw attention to the eyes. Deep maroon lips are another highlight of this bride. With a middle parting, the hair is plaited with traditional gajras adorning her hair.
A natural radiance with a rosy tint to your face would look best for a Christian bride, decked in pure white. With a nude shade on the eyelids, blend in some silver to give a magical touch. Match your nude eyelids with creamy nude lips or add a hint of peachy pink. Ornament your loosely tied hair with pearl embellishments.
Choose a shade of pink to highlight your cheekbones, and match with a deeper tone of the pink on your lips. A deep magenta to highlight your eyes along with shades of green and black eyeliner would be the best bet for the eyes. Complete your look with a neat bun with loose curls on the sides. Add traditional elements for a cultural touch.
