During the day of wedding every bridal makeover is conducted either at the bride's home, or at beauty parlour. Each makeover includes cleansing, moisturizing, foundation to powder; blush, eyes, and lips.

 After cleaning the bride's face light moisturizer is applied for smoothing her skin. Afterwards, to put spot on the skin out of sight, a concealer of a light colour shadow is selected for the areas of the face around the eyes and nose. Then it is gently applied and blended all over the face and under the neck for an oil-free foundation to make it last throughout a long day.
