This wedding season, rock your look by following this beauty guide. Pixabay

The wedding season has begun. And whether youre the bride, or bridesmaid or brides mother, sibling or a close friend, you want to look your absolute best! Its also the perfect excuse to give your skin a makeover just in time for the festivities. Sobiya Moghul from Amazon Beauty shares some tips to ensure glowing skin, flawless makeup and lustrous hair on the D-day.

For glowing skin

Use a moisturising face wash: Some face washes can be extremely drying, striping off the essential oils on your skin- especially if you have dry and sensitive skin. Use a facial cleanser that hydrates the skin while gently cleaning away the impurities.


Clear dark spots: Exposure to heat and stress are the biggest causes of dark spots. Use a brightening cream and ensure that you apply SPF at least 15-20 minutes before you step out into the sun. If you want slight coverage, use a BB cream with SPF.

Banish acne: Use products laced with benzoyl peroxide twice a day to banish acne. Since it works by attacking the acne-causing bacteria and drying the skin, use a concentration that is suitable for the amount of acne in your skin. You can use a toner, face wash or face pack with this ingredient. Use a retinoid cream at night to help combat excessive drying and peeling of the skin.

Exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate: Instead of repeatedly running to a salon, use face and body scrubs to exfoliate your skin. Regular exfoliation helps unclog pores and boosts blood circulation. Your skin will have a youthful glow when you use a scrub at least 2-3 times a week. Try not to over-exfoliate and be gentle while using the scrub.

For lustrous hair

Deep conditioning treatments: For a deep conditioning treatment, use a hair mark to nourish your hair. The best way to tame your mane is to lavish some TLC at least once a week. Choose a mask that treats your specific condition: If your hair is dry and frizzy, opt for a hydrating mask and use a hair mask enriched with proteins if your hair fall is out of control.

Using a heat protectant: Don’t shy away from using straighteners, curling tongs and blow dryers to achieve the perfect hairstyle. Instead, just use a heat protectant to prevent any damage to your hair. How this product works is that it redistributes the heat to your hair gently and slowly-controlling the way your hair receives the heat.

Oil your scalp: Oil your scalp frequently and for best results, massage the oil into your scalp thoroughly yet gently. Try and keep the hair oil overnight and use a hot towel to ensure your scalp can soak in the oil completely. Don’t use too much oil and use a mild shampoo to wash it off.

For flawless makeup

Pick the perfect foundation: Play with different foundations to see what works best for your skin type. A foundation wear-test is a must, since you also need to check if it is long-lasting and not causing any reactions. The ideal foundation should give you a satin smooth finish and maximum coverage.

For lipstick that lasts: The key to making your lipstick last is using a thick layer of lip scrub overnight leading up to D-Day. Also, leave it on for a couple of hours before you have to get dressed. Gently wipe this off, apply a lip balm and a layer of concealer before you apply your lipstick. This nourishes your lips and allows the lipstick to blend in and last longer.

Opt for a waterproof mascara: Every wedding is emotional and even if you’re not about to shed a few tears, it’s best to opt for a waterproof mascara. You can even use a lengthening mascara and then top it off with a waterproof mascara. Dark and voluminous lashes will definitely elevate your look.

Fix your makeup: A wedding event lasts for long hours and you want to keep your makeup intact without rushing for a touch-up every 1-2 hours. Invest in a good setting spray to ensure that your makeup stays in place and it also gives you a dewy finish. Hold the spray about 6-8 inches from your face, close your eyes and ensure that the mist covers your entire face. (IANS)
