Hair, makeup, and jewelry are of great importance when it comes to events that happen only once in a lifetime. It’s the day when girls want everything picture perfect. So for these three factors, we have a few tips for you.
- Go for a hairstyle that suits your face more. Don’t blindly follow a celebrity’s hairstyle or anything you’ve seen in pictures. You can always go for a trial makeup/hairstyle to be sure of the look.
- If your dress is heavy, then go for light makeup and vice versa.
- If you are planning to wear heavy jewelry, then wear an off-shoulder top so that your jewelry has enough room.
- Don’t go for everything heavy. Just one of these three should be heavy, so it balances out the rest.
- Make sure your dupatta, hairstyle, and hair jewelry are all balanced well. Because a little miss coordination can ruin your day and, of course, pictures.
