Indian/South Asian Bridal Makeup Series: Haldi/Pithi Makeup

Hey Everyone,

With all the love and positive feedback I received on my last bridal makeup tutorial, I knew I had to do a few more of those videos. So I decided to expand into a series and cover all the different events that we have for the wedding. This particular look is one I thought would be great for the pithi/haldi ceremony. 

That ceremony is about perfecting the brides skin for her wedding day by purifying it with natural ingredients. All the older people of the family come forward and put turmeric powder, yogurt, gram flower, honey etc. on the bride to make her skin glow! That part is done without her having any makeup on, and then she goes and showers/changes to her outfit and gets her hair and makeup done. This look was created with that in mind.

The look I created was with glowing skin in mind, and more natural makeup. I didn’t want to mask her beauty, and wanted to show off her youthfulness! I was going for a “pretty” look as opposed to super done up and unnatural.

Be sure to check out my video on this look too! It will be live on Thursday at 7 am EST

Again, please bear with me while these picture continue to show up sideways. The problem will hopefully be fixed soon! In the mean time, if you click on them you should be able to see the image properly.
