Bridal Make-up & Different looks

Over the weekend when there is enough time i try my hands on different looks, its like an artist / painter concept trying to create a new look on an empty canvas.  I like to play with colors and try different options for creating the look.

When I start, I  first decide what type of look i want and which colors to be used, that makes it easier for me to start as i have a certain idea how i want my look to be.

To capture the look and the colors you need a proper professional camera which would do justice to the look and the efforts put in. So far i have been capturing photos from my phone camera which is Samsung S III and by a camera which i had at home from Nikkon (which is not an updated technology).  Hence you will not find pictures so clear and crisp which i apologies for. Soon I plan to buy a good camera which would do justice to my looks, its sure on my wish list.

I had the passion for make-up from quiet an early age.  As the saying goes practice makes the man perfect. Over the years  have tried to enhance those skills by practicing and attending workshops etc.  Though i feel, i could do much better had i done a proper professional course from a reputed Academy and become one of the professional make up artist but i do have my limitations :(

When i was naive in make up, i have tried few bridal make up. I believe i could do much better, had it been now, as i have achieved more knowledge and information about the make up and know many more tricks to get that flawless look and correct the imperfections. Today i would like to share with you 3 bridal look that i did in the past, when i knew nothing much about the make-up.

This bride would have manage to lit the stage even without make up with her million dollar smile and her fun loving attitude.

Kryolan Supracolor 303 - Under Eye Corrector

Do you have a bad dark circle under your eyes, which your concealer is not able to conceal ??? Well then you need a under eye corrector to conceal them. Yup ! you heard it right. We do happen to spend so much on a product and when it does not meet your expectations it disappoint you and makes you loose faith in the brand.

You need to identify your problem first and pick up a right product. I have a bad dark circles, when i attended the work shop on make-up they taught me how to conceal my rigid dark circles. Normal to light dark circles can be concealed by the concealer but if your dark circles are bad then you have to use under eye corrector to even it out.

There are lot of brands which sell under eye corrector, today i am going to review Kryolan under eye corrector which works really great for me. Corrector is pink- or peach-based to neutralize under-eye darkness and is designed to be used before Creamy Concealer.
