I was reading an article on the Asian bridal makeup the other day and I found that many people have developed a misconception that Chinese or Japanese brides wear very heavy makeup, followed by expensive jewelry and hair accessories. I don’t agree with the concept because I have a lot of Chinese friends and I had had a chance to attend their wedding ceremonies as well.
Chinese brides love colors, hair accessories and other stuff that all girls love and like to wear on the weddings, but as far as makeup is concerned, they go with more subtle and contoured bridal looks because they believe that beautiful brings out when light colors are used during makeup.
The Asian brides are famous around the world for their sharp makeup and expensive accessories, but I truly believe that all these efforts are made the beauty more noticeable. As compared to Indian and Pakistan brides, Chinese girls are bit reluctant to wear red lips, glittery eyes, and heavy eye makeup and that’s for a nature, they want to look as natural as possible on their special day.
Let’s take a little detailed look at how Chinese brides accessorize themselves and get a makeover for the wedding:
Eyes Makeup: Though smokey makeup and cat eye makeup, both terms are very popular these days, especially when it comes to a wedding makeup. But in China, brides just want a slight touch of light shades on eyes rather than wearing bright and noticeable colors. They are very good at defining their eyes and setting them off with the dress and accessories they sport on the wedding.
Lip Colors: It seems that pink is the most favorite color of the Chinese brides, they are usually seen wearing light shades of pinks and pastels for wedding days, I know it’s a kind of surprise for you, but it’s reality.
Dress color: Just like Christian and British brides, Chinese brides prefer wearing white and pastel shades on their weddings rather than reds, blues or other non-traditional colors. So if anyone believes that red wedding dress is the traditional color of Chinese wedding, they are wrong or maybe misguided; the white shade symbolizes peace and purity, by wearing a white dress Chinese brides convey a silent message that they are honest, innocent and virgin, above all committed to be loyal to their partner.
Hair accessories: I have mentioned above that Chinese brides love adorning themselves with hair accessories on special events, wedding is one of most important of all occasions for them, indeed. They wear hair bands, laced bangs, clips, or baby pinks on their hairstyle to be the center of attraction in the function, some of these girls just embrace natural look by including fresh or artificial flowers and so on. Beads, rhinestones, and gems are also used in veil as well as in their bands.
Contouring of facial features: The Chinese brides always sport a contoured, glamorous makeover, they enhance their eyes, nose, and chicks and other features of the face. Their eyes are different from Europeans and Indian girls, so they have to work more on highlighting their eyelashes and eye shapes.
