Applying bridal make-up on an Asian face requires much skill and a careful eye. The cardinal rule for applying make-up on any type of face is to make it look as if no make-up has been applied. Wedding make-up is different from everyday make-up and as such should be applied with careful consideration. Most brides try on different make-up looks for find the look that they want for their wedding day. Follow the following simple steps to apply suitable make-up on your wedding day.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Work with a make-up professional. A few weeks before the wedding, begin with working with a make-up professional to perfect your wedding day look. Pick out perfect shades and colours that suit your skin colour. It is important to work with a professional as Asian skin consists of many shades and undertones. Make-up professionals recommend getting facials done months in advance to create smooth and flawless skin. In addition, shape your eyebrows properly to have clean skin around your eyes for sophisticated eye make-up.

    Choose a foundation that will best suit your skin tone and type and will translate well in wedding photographs. Select a translucent foundation and loose powder on top to give your skin a smooth and clear surface. If you want your skin to glow, apply moisturiser 20 minutes before applying the foundation.

  3. 3

    Work on making your eyes stand out. Asian faces have almond-shaped eyes, which is a desired shape for eye make-up. Within the eye make-up, select eye shadows that suit your eyes. Choose shades that work best with your wedding dress. Shades should be light and should have some shimmer, so they sparkle and stand out during the wedding. For bridal make-up, stick with traditional make-up, including black eyeliner and black mascara. These are good choices as they show up best in wedding pictures and video. Add some dark brown or grey shadow to your lower lashes to nicely define your eyes.

  4. 4

    Work on highlighting your lips. If you have thin lips, make them appear plumper or bigger by moistening them with lip gloss or vaseline. Additionally, apply a nude colour lip liner or lip pencil to your lips. The outline will make your lips look bigger as well as prevent your lipstick from running or smearing. Apply a lipstick that best suits the colour of your wedding dress and eyes. Blot the lipstick and add a touch of lip gloss to keep your lips looking plump.
