BRIDAL BEAUTY TIPS: BEAT THE HEAT ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
By Karuna Chani
Karuna Chani is an internationally recognized celebrity makeup artist, image and skin care consultant. Having trained in fashion from Parsons, Karuna creates fashion-forward looks, merging the eastern aesthetic with western beauty trends for her extensive list of clients, ranging from Priyanka Chopra and Mawra Hocane to top models like Jessica Strother. Karuna specializes in the traditional 3-day South Asian wedding and shares her beauty secrets to help keep the bride’s makeup fresh and smudge-free on those hot wedding days.

PRIMING IS ESSENTIAL
To prevent makeup from smudging and creasing I always prime the skin first before I let the bride walk down the aisle. Nars’ Eye Primer has a lightweight formula which will stop your eyeshadow and liner from smearing. Before applying the shadow, I dot the primer on your lid to create a smooth canvas to help keep eye colors vivid and fresh all day long.

FLASHY LASHES FOR THE 3-DAY WEDDING 
Need va-va-voom lashes to impress all your guests? Benefit’s BAD Gal Waterproof Mascara performs amazingly – it’s intensely pigmented and stays put. The wand is instantly recognizable for its giant brush and it leaves lashes clump-free.

LINED TO PERFECTION 
When it comes to liner Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner has been a personal favorite for many years. I highly recommend this for the sentimental teary-eyed bride. I use it everywhere. On shoots, for the red carpet and even just to pop out to grab an iced latte. It’s a non-smearing, budge-proof formula that never tugs on the eyelid when you apply it. On days when I’m going for a glamourous cat eye look, this liner will always have your back especially on your wedding day!

DEW, DON’T STEW 
To stay shine-free and looking divine in all your wedding photos use Make Up Forever Loose Powders, they are the go-to for makeup pros for good reason. Long-wearing, long-lasting and matte; these finely milled powders glide on beautifully and set make-up perfectly without creasing and caking. They are perfect for harsh climates as they are water-resistant and absorb oil. Dust a small amount lightly after foundation and concealer – a little goes a long way.

REFRESH YOURSELF, NOT JUST YOUR INSTAGRAM FEED! 
A good skin pick-me-up after you’ve had your first dance is the cult classic, Caudelíe Beauty Elixir, perhaps the most well-known beauty enhancing mist. If the heat is getting to you, spritz liberally on your face to feel instantly refreshed. This elixir promises to smooth away fine lines and immediately tightens your pores. Perfect for a bride dancing the night away with her new husband. Don’t forget to pack it for that long flight to your honeymoon destination.

OH WOW BROWS 
For strong brows that stay put, I will use Benefit’s Goof Proof Pencil, which is a serious game changer. It doesn’t streak, applies beautifully and as the name suggests, is difficult to mess up. With a12-hour sweat/ waterproof formula, it was created with warmer climates in mind. Also, the super easy-to-apply pencil comes with a built-in spoolie-brush, designed to expertly shape and craft the perfect brow.
