Best Make Up Tips for your Face Shape

There's one thing a Bride or her family should never compromise on - MAKE UP. No doubt make up enhances one's beauty & make people around them go WOW in just one glimpse. It's a fact that make up does wonders to your face. But this works only when applied correctly, as it is very important to do a make up as per the shape of your face to make the best features stand out.


Oval faces are perfectly proportioned. Almost every type of make up works best on high cheekbones & narrow chin. However it is best to draw attention either on your lips or eyes, but never on both.

Eyes - Try to play with them giving either a smoky look or by applying soft colors such as pale pink, mint green or sky blue. By applying Kohl on the lower lid & eyeliner on the upper lid, it will give you a defined look. Along with that, you can apply mascara to your lashes to give a final touch.

Lips - Keep away from bright colors & go for soft colors such as Rose or Cherry. Do not forget to line your lips. This would add more fame.

Cheekbones - As you have high cheekbones, apply one shade of foundation darker than your skin color. Also, use rosy or bronze color blush in an up sweep motion


Although this shape is considered to be very lovely, as it has feminine, naturally soft, full cheeks & round chin... one has to give angles to make every feature stand out. You can play with softer tones to enhance the features. 
Eyes - Use pure colors from the eyelid to the brow bone. Use softly smudged eyeliner for lining your eyes. Use darker shade of eye shadow on the outer corners of your eye & lighter shades towards the inner part & lash lengthening mascara for your eye lashes.

Lips - Go for soft skin color lip gloss or creamy lipstick for your lips. Those with lighter complexion can go for lighter pink or peach color & those with darker complexion can go for luscious nudes & pure plum color.

Cheekbones - For the hollow on your cheeks, apply darker foundation. Avoid using blush in a circular motion on the apple of your cheeks. Start from your pupils or under your cheekbone to get a balance. You can well apply a peachy pink shade after your regular shade. Use it in sweeping motion on the top of your cheekbone.


If your forehead is broad till your cheeks & pointed at your chin, then you surely have a heart shaped face. Thus, make up has to be applied in such a way that it balances your forehead & chin.
Eyes - Opt for lighter shades in the eye shadow. But when it comes to eye liners, go for darker shades like black, dark brown or navy colors. Apply the eyeliner & eye shadow till the lash line not beyond that. Apply the lash lengthening mascara for more defined & wide eye look.

Lips - Pick any bright color like red or pinkish red. you can avoid lip liners. Classic red is the best red shade for heart shaped faces.

Cheekbone - Opt for neutral mantle blush or pink cream blush to balance your cheekbone. Apply blush slightly lower than your cheekbone & in an upward manner


Those with square shaped faces have a sharp jawline. Their face will have equal width from sides of the forehead & cheeks to their jaw.
Eyes - Use a dark eye shadow from the inner corners of your eyes to the outer side. Go for smoky effect, but with a certain level of  softness. Use dark mascara to give your face an instant glow.
Lips - Use bold & bright colors to give that look away from your jawline. High shine gloss will work too. Use a lip pencil of the same shade. Crimson blues, candy pink & intense plum are colors for your lips.

Cheekbone - To draw attention from your jaw, apply highlighter on the chin, cheekbone & center of the forehead. Subtle blush colors are best for you. Use pink, peach blush or plum shades on the apple of your cheek in circular motion.

So What Are You Waiting For? Pick up your shades & brushes & try according to these tips, according to your face shape for a perfect look...

Ear rings adorn the ears of the bride. Since the ear rings worn by bride are quite heavy they are normally supported by a gold chain passing over the crown of the head.

Unique Guestbook Ideas

A couples wedding day is one of the most important days in their life. It is a happy occasion where you are joined by your closest family and friends where memories are made and experiences shared. What better way to record these memoirs by asking your guests to indulge in a task that will create a fabulous keepsake that you can look back on for years to come.

Alternates to the traditional wedding guestbook are popping up everywhere as people become more creative and personal with their weddings. Messages need no longer be stored in a book after all books tend to get put into drawers or hidden away on bookcases! Here are some of our favorites!

Wishing stones

We love this idea—guests write their messages on individual stones, and then you can arrange them in a basin. They'd make a beautiful and touching addition to a garden. Post-wedding, spray the rocks with clear acrylic gloss to keep the messages from fading or washing away!
 Let’s get the map out!

If you are a couple that have spent a lot of time travelling and have family and friends in all different parts of the world this idea of incorporating geographical messages into your wedding is unbelievably different. Take a large globe of map of the world and let your guests write small messages to where they are from. Not only is it completely distinctive, it will give guests the chance to have some fun and could also create great rapport amongst guests almost as if it’s a game!

The Fingerprint tree

A piece of your wedding that will be going straight to the framers post event that would look idyllic in a kitchen, dining room or hallway for years to come. Provide your guests with particular colored paints, perhaps to match the theme of your wedding and get them to place a thumb or finger print on the branch of the tree and have them sign their name. This may not present you with long messages from your guests which some people feel clueless as what to write anyway but it does detail who was their on the day.

Matching wedding theme or wedding couple!

There may be a few things that you and your new partner have in common but there is usually one thing that really stands out, something that people know you by or it may be how you met! Or you could have a particular theme to your wedding that encompasses something significant to you both. The inspiration really depends on the couple themselves but here are some exceptional ideas I came across

Bottle of wine

Writing on wine bottles is a perfect idea for the couple’s who are particularly fond of a glass of wine, plus it makes a lovely keep sake to perhaps open on future anniversaries.

The wishing tree

This stunning idea instantly becomes d├ęcor for your reception room. Guests write their wish on the card and then hang it on the branches. We think the wish tree looks fabulous, elegant and there’s something exceptional about people making wishes for you in your future together as a married couple. 

Obviously you won’t be keeping the tree forever so then you could choose how to display these keepsakes yourself afterwards.

This is obviously just a small sample of alternative guest books, the possibilities are endless for things you can get guests to sign! Keep reading! Cheers!
