Cleansing helps reduce acne breakouts and blackheads and keeps the skin soft, smooth and glowing. Use a gentle, alcohol-free cleanser to do the job. Follow up with an Aloe Vera or Witch Hazel based toner and moisturize using a non comedogenic moisturizer. For daytime use, do not forget the SPF factor.

4. Exfoliate your skin weekly

In order to get rid of dead skin cells, exfoliate your face at least once a week, before applying makeup. Avoid over-exfoliation as it can make the skin dry. Go for gentle scrubs or you can make one at home using brown sugar and olive oil.

5. Wiggle it up!

Yeah, instead of brushing the mascara over your lashes, just wiggle the stick. This is very much a trend for 2018 as far as bridal makeup goes. Starting from bottom to top, in the same motion, wiggle the mascara stick across the lashes. It will make your eyelashes well-defined and ‘fluttery’.

6. Dust powder on those eyes

This is a convenient method of avoiding smudging of eyeliners. All you need to do is use some loose powder and dust it over the eyelids once or twice, before starting the eye make up for the big day. This will help your eye-makeup last longer.

7. Fill up brows and use fake lashes

These days, more brides are opting for fake eye lashes as they help add glamour and make for great photos. So, if you are comfortable wearing false lashes, do go for it. To fill up sparse brows, try taupe or brown shades to get the trending brows. Also, instead of using pencil, use powder to fill your eye brows.

8. Say No to highlighters

Highlighters are passe! To get that glow, simply apply gloss for highlighting your cheekbones instead of a highlighter. For a day time events, go for a latex lipstick on the higher cheekbones to get a subtle bridal glow.
