So while doing dulhan makeup for a Bengali bride you must keep in mind to use a lot of vibrant colours and do a perfect eye makeup as it is one of the most important parts in Bengali bridal makeup. Here is a quick tutorial about Bengali bridal makeup.

Things required for doing a perfect Bengali bride makeup

Bengali dulhan makeup is very subtle but accentuating eyes and lips by doing vibrant eye makeup and using bold colours like red or maroon for lips. Here is a list of basic things that you need while doing bridal makeup:

  • Face wash: Doing a face cleanup before applying wedding makeup is very important for a long lasting makeup and fresh look. A face wash will help you get rid of all the impurities, dirt and excess oil from the face. Once done with a good face clean up pat dry your face with towel and apply toner. Toner will help to tighten the skin and help in giving a even skin for applying makeup.
  • Moisturizer: Applying Moisturizer is very important before applying makeup because a moisturizer helps in keeping the skin hydrated. Dry skin and rough patches are not good thus applying moisturizer will help in getting rid of them.
  • Primer: Primer is a base coat for makeup. Applying a primer is very important as it helps makeup to stay for longer duration.
  • Concealer: Concealer is used to hide imperfections of skin, dark circles around eyes, blemishes on the skin etc. so always opt for a good branded concealer as it covers up all the imperfections of the skin.
  • Foundation: Next is applying foundation it is used for highlight the skin tone. While choosing a foundation make sure it suits your skin tone and it is recommended to buy a foundation which is just one shade lighter than the actual skin colour. Applying foundation in dots on skin and then blending it into the skin in circular motion will help in avoiding patchy makeup and help in achieving flawless bridal application.
  • Eye Makeup: This is one of the most important steps in the bridal makeup of a Bengali bride. Bengalis have naturally beautiful eyes so a lot of importance is given to application of eye makeup in dulhan makeup of Bengali bride. Eye makeup should be done properly to give a nice vibrant look to the eyes and makeup. Eye makeup includes following steps:
    • Eye Shadow: Choose an eye colour which best suits the colour of the bride’s attire and her skin tone. Use of a single vibrant colour or a blend of more than one colour is used to give a very vibrant look. As the attire of Bengali bride is usually a red saree with a lot of gold embellishments so an eye makeup using red and golden colours would go with the attire and make the eye makeup very peppy.
    • Kajal: A dark kohl or kajal will accentuate the eyes and will make them look more lustrous. A thick line of kajal will give a more defined look to the eye. It is important to choose a waterproof and smudge free kajal.
    • Eye Liner: Finish the eye makeup by applying good thick eyeliner to the eyelid. Outlining eye shadow with eye liner will make eyes look more artistic. Wing eye liner outward for a dramatic look of eye makeup.
    • Eye Lashes: For accentuating eyes use of false eye lashes is a very good option. They make eyes look dramatic, lustrous and intense.
    • Mascara: Curl the eye lids by applying 2 to 3 coats of mascara.
  • Blush: use the blush colour according to the colour of the dress of the bride. As usually the colour of the saree is red so it is best to use a blush in the shade of red. Avoid using a glittery colour for the blush as it will make the makeup unnecessarily very heavy.
  • Powder: Dab a little loose powder on the face to give a complete makeup look. Avoid using too much and glittery powder on the face.
  • Lipstick: opt for a vibrant dark colour lipstick shade. Shades of red or use of vibrant red colour is most suitable for completing Bengali dulhan makeup. It is recommended to apply the lipstick using brush as it helps to apply evenly and stay for longer. Do not forget to apply lip balm or moisturizing you lips before applying lipstick. Also define the lips by using lip liner. Apply 2 – 3 coats of lipstick and use bloating paper to ward off excess lipstick. Application of lip gloss is optional.
  • Motifs: Motifs is a unique feature of Bengali dulhan makeup. Motifs are applied on the forehead of Bengali brides. These motifs are of red and white colour dots and are applied alternatively or a particular design or pattern can be chosen to do the design. To create perfect circular red and white dots use of toothpick or ear buds can be done. Applying motif is a signature makeup style in Bengali dulhan makeup.
  • Bindi: finish the look and dulhan makeup by applying a big red bindi in the center of the forehead as it is quintessential in Bengali weddings.

A good hairstyle, perfectly draped saree and perfect makeup will help the dulhan to get a gorgeous, vibrant and glittery look and all set to steal heart of everyone and especially of her man “The Groom”.
