Indian weddings are celebrated differently based on the various regions and states – South Indian has their own wedding rituals and North Indian has their own wedding rituals. With the difference in tradition, this also results in a distinct makeup look for the various Indian wedding styles. You can check out this video to see the contrast between South Indian brides and North Indian brides. But generally, Indian weddings are associated with bright striking colours and Indian wedding makeup is known for its use of vibrant colours, especially the smokey eye look and glittery eyeshadows.
Makeup plays a significant role in every wedding, and it can make a huge difference in the bride’s overall look. With your wedding as one of the most important days in your life, you wouldn’t want to end up being unsatisfied with your makeup look or having makeup that becomes cakey halfway through your wedding. Therefore, it is important to choose an experienced and skillful makeup artist that you know your bridal look will be taken care of in good hands.

Common Questions to Ask Your Indian Makeup Artist
The very first thing to check with your makeup artist is whether she is available on your wedding day. You should also check if she has other bookings on that day in the event that you might need to book her for the entire day.
Clarify with your makeup artist on what is included and covered in your bridal package. Some common things to clarify is whether makeup trial and transportation cost is included in the package. Make sure that you go through the package in detail as you wouldn’t want to end up finding out that there are hidden costs and mark up the entire cost of the makeup services.
Preparations from your End
Check with the makeup artist if there is anything that you should prepare for the makeup session such as equipment like curling, which may not be provided by the makeup artist.
Types of Service Offered
Inquiry the type of services that the makeup artist is able to offer. Other than makeup and hairdos, is she able to do saree draping and mehndi. This is important for brides that want to save the trouble of finding many other vendors and would prefer to get an all-in-one makeup artist.
