Marriages in India are a big affair. Big fat Indian weddings speak volume of glamour, money, make-up, and everything. For a bride and groom, it’s the most important day of life, and it is obvious that they want to look their best.
However; to look the best on your wedding day, you need not jump into your make-up kit straight away. And that’s what, Avantika Singh from Delhi, is teaching us. Just recently, it was her wedding, and she nailed her beauty and bridal look like a pro, and that too without any make-up! Yes! Let’s hop on to explore how Avantika managed such a feat.
In an exclusive interview with WeddingWire India, she revealed the very first thing that she did. Making sure that the deadlines are not dead ends and they come with all happiness without any rush! She said:
“I started work on my wedding seven months prior to the D-day. I wanted to cherish my time as a bride-to-be with my close ones, relax and look my best for the functions. I did not want to look worn out, so I set deadlines and finished all my work a month before my wedding.”
So, how come Avantika managed to look so beautiful without any make-up? She revealed that she already had a strict wedding diet plan and took extra care of skin. She is a firm believer in taking care of her skin and following a strict healthy diet.
Now, coming to the make-up for the wedding day, she, unapologetically, said:
“I have never worn make-up in my life and I wanted to ensure the same for my wedding because I didn’t want to look like someone else on the most important day of my life. My reasons are simple, I just don’t get the idea of layering your face with harmful chemicals.”
So, what Avantika did instead of hiring any professional make-up artist, was that she asked one of her friends to apply eyeliner and lip gloss for her, and that’s it! Can you believe it? Such minimalism and clarity! Then Avantika donned herself into a beautiful ivory Anita Dongre lehenga and stole the show!
Isn’t this amazing? More power to brides like Avantika who take their charge and be completely their own-selves on the wedding day! Brides like her are a true inspiration for all brides-to-be out there who wish to stay away from heavy make-up. What do you think of this story? Do let us know in the comments section below.
