Makeup For Dusky Brides

She says curtly, “the word dusky should be dropped altogether.” She adds that, so many people in the world just die to get a skin tone like a tan and dusky skin. According to her, best makeup for such skin type is Glossy. And the colour palette should be warm tones rather the cool ones.

For all the beautiful girls who are going to be brides soon, Vinnie Kapoor has three important things to share and they are. ” Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate”. Have liquids in good quantities for a glowing bridal skin. Another important aspect is to use oils for skin unless you have very oily skin. And lastly, do apply moisturisers and lotions at night. it is the best time when your skin gets to rest and time to heal.

For daily use, she suggests using a Gulabari. Just sprinkle on your skin and see it freshen up. Another therapy could be rubbing ice on your face. If you have applied makeup on your face, then don’t wipe but just dab with tissues for keeping makeup intact.
