While most of your wedding may go according to the plan, some things that just aren’t in your control! So to help you worry a little less, we spoke to a few top make-up artists and got a list of quick fixes to handle common make up problems for a bride.
Ideally, the best thing is to have your make-up artist around. If not:
What to do if your eyeliner smudges?
If you are the classic bride, you WILL cry at your wedding; which in turn will cause your mascara to run. (If it’s not water-proof)
Just use a wet Q-tip to take off the smudged mascara/eyeliner. You might need to touch up your foundation around the eyes as well so keep that and your compact within easy access.
What if your winged eyeliner is not #onpoint?
Make up artist, Monisha Bathija says:
“Winged liners are the trickiest and the most difficult part is to balance both the sides.
However your best friend in such a situation would be ear/cotton buds n a makeup remover. Simply dip the ear bud into the makeup remover, stretch your skin slightly from the temple area (so that there are no bumps and you can get a fierce wing) and follow the ear bud from the lower lash line towards the eyebrow!”
How to avoid getting lipstick stuck on your teeth?
To avoid getting lipstick on your teeth, blot it with a tissue after applying. You could also set it in with light compact, though the colour might not be as dark.
Another way is to put your finger in your mouth and pull through. This will get all the lipstick that is on the inner part of your lip.
How to deal with a shiny face without having to pull out your compact all the time?
Never touch up with a compact throughout the day as that’ll just result in clogging of pores which would result in break-outs!
We suggest you make sure that you have blotting papers around to suck up the shine. Dab them on your face as and when needed! Totally handy.
