2. Do you enjoy doing Bridal Make up? What is different when you have a bride as a client as compared to commercial shoots?
Ruhee: Oh yes I love doing bridal make up! An ad make up is very fresh and dewy, and I have to set the look as per the story and character, whereas Bridal make up is much more elaborate and glamorous. Nowadays every bride wants to look like a particular actress on her D-day. Having a bride as a client is more personal. They trust me and leave it totally on me to transform their looks for all their functions.
3. Any latest trends in Bridal make up and hair you recommend?
Ruhee: The latest trend in bridal make up & hair is more like the Retro look: soft and luminous base, thick eyebrows are back, soft skin coloured, gold, pearl,copper,silver metallic eye shadows,with winged eyeliner or smokey eyes. Go for light gold blush on the apples of the cheeks and brown matt blush for contouring the cheek bones & jaw line. Bright red,dark maroon,dark Burgundy,bright coral & fuchsia pink matt lips with a glint of chrome lip gloss will work really well with this look. As far as the hair is concerned, High Buffon up do's, low & side messy buns, braided buns, braids & long soft curls,,long braided plaits are in vogue. Essentially the 'Princess' and 'Mermaid' look is catching up!
