Every bride deserves to be the very special lady of the day and look
her best. The hairdo, the makeup, the bridal trousseau and how the bride
conducts herself is the focus of everybody's attention on this day and
you will certainly feel much more comfortable, if you have already done

Try bronzer under cheekbones instead.

copper and warm beiges, creams and caramels or cool such as fuchsia,
magenta, blue-reds, shades of lilac and pink and make lips look
plusher and fuller.
- Deep warm lip colors such as yellowish and orangish browns;
mahogany, deep warm reds and chocolate and deep cool shades such as
cool brown, taupe, deep purple, plum and blue-toned burgundy

have either warm or cool tone while your hair, make-up, jewelry and
gown should correspond to the carefully chosen theme.

the looks of the bride.

from blue and green eye shadows.

are the safest bet as well as the golden tones.
- Hairstyles are often adorned with pearls, rhinestones, flower
buds, golden lace, satin ribbons, jeweled hair bands and tiaras
among other hair ornaments and may range from the simplest French
braid or bud to complex and elaborate hairdos.

details. Don't overlook them for the finished look.
- A timeless makeup look will keep your wedding snaps fresher
forever, so try not to give in to the fads of the day.
- Cream foundation with a high pigment level is recommended.
- Don't forget to cover your neck, chest, area behind your ears
with foundation and makeup too.

need more formally adorned brides with darker makeup shades.

lighter colors while deeper tones are good for darker areas.
Fluorescent lighting will add a greenish tinge to everything so
avoid green shades.
- Try not to be too dramatic but there is a secret seldom revealed:
red lipstick makes teeth appear whiter!
