Marriages in India are a big affair. Big fat Indian weddings speak volumes of glamour, money, make-up, and everything. For a bride and a groom, it’s the most important day of their lives, and it is obvious that they want to look their best. For years, every girl or boy dreams of their wedding day and for months the preparations for their big day go on. They worry about everything from decor to food, from outfits to their skin, and the bride-to-be especially goes crazy.
To look the best on your wedding day, there is no need to jump into your make-up kit straight away because it is your skin that needs the pampering first. Be it right food or sipping plenty of water, there is a lot that a bride should follow months before her wedding and bride, Avantika Singh from Delhi shared her routine which helped her look flawless at her wedding. At her wedding, 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 interview with WeddingWire India, Avantika talked about how she managed to look flawless with bare minimum makeup on her wedding day. She revealed the very first thing that she did and how she had started preparing for her wedding seven months in advance. Making sure that the deadlines are not dead ends and they come with all happiness and 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.”
Avantika also revealed how she managed to look radiant without any make-up. She shared that she already had a strict wedding diet plan and took extra care of her skin in advance. She is a firm believer in taking care of her skin and following a strict healthy diet. Talking about the make-up for the wedding day, she shared that she has never worn any make-up and wanted to keep it the same at her wedding. In her words,
“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.”
Rather than putting in a heavy part of her wedding money into makeup, Avantika, instead of hiring any professional make-up artist, asked one of her friends to apply eyeliner and lip gloss for her. Well yes! the glow on Avantika's face at her wedding was real and not from the makeup products or any highlighter. Can you believe it? Such minimalism and clarity.
Avantika donned a beautiful ivory Anita Dongre lehenga with gotta patti work on it. She completed her look with Polki necklace, nath and maang teeka. However, it was her radiant no-makeup look that stole the show.
Isn’t this amazing? Avantika Singh is truly an inspiration, who taught us how we can save money from our wedding expenses while taking care of our bodies. A healthy diet and plenty of water will surely make your body feel great and when you will feel healthy, your face will certainly glow.
More power to brides like Avantika, who take the charge and motivate us to be ourselves on our 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 and yet want to glow!
