Indian Bridal Makeup Tutorial

Hey everyone!

Today I created an Indian/South Asian bridal makeup look for you guys. This is one of my most requested looks, so I had to do it! I decided to go all out and wear jewelry, veil my head, and the full outfit. This look is in collaboration with Arshia from Happy Treasuress (click on the name to be taken to her video!!). She did a makeup look for the mehendi/sangeet ceremony which precedes the actual wedding ceremony. Be sure to follow me on instagram  All links are down below too!

Our culture is very colorful, and our weddings are even more so. Our traditional wedding color is red and usually has thick gold embroidery and beading. Due to this, makeup artists tend to favor gold for the eyelids. Some brides feel comfortable rocking a dark red lip in conjunction to the red outfit, but most modern brides who come to me don’t want that look. I feel more comfortable with a lighter lip too with such a dark outfit, so that is what I chose. I hope you guys enjoyed this look! Don’t forget to watch the video on how I achieved it on my youtube channel. The widget to take you there is down below!

When achieving makeup looks like this, its important to keep in mind that the jewelry and outfit have a lot to do with the final look! While the makeup might look super over done without all of the trimmings, the second you have your full outfit together everything starts making sense.

Here are some of Arshia’s pictures from her look!

Lip Swatches of the Gerard Cosmetics/Whitening Lightning Lip Products!

Hey guys!

As promised, below are the lip swatch stills from my video. I don’t have pictures of all the ones I talked about, but here are a few! Check out my video to see them all. 10 glosses and 4 lipsticks in action. I have been using Gerard Cosmetics products for about a year now, and just thought to do a video on it. No clue why I didn’t before! These products are so creamy and buttery, and feel great on the lips. The glosses are tacky (not sticky) and really stay on well. The pigmentation is just out of this world! The lipsticks are matte (which is perfect because I have bigger lips) and are velvety when applied. These can stain a bit, so make sure you get a great makeup remover to take them off! I use the MAC oil based one. I do have a coupon code for you also as well as a link- Check below!
