How To Use Fake Lashes | Bridal Beauty Tips

How To Use Fake Lashes | Bridal Beauty Tips

Hi Everyone!

Eyes are the most beautiful features that a girl is gifted with. Hence, eye make-up becomes a very important part of every girl’s life, be it for a special occasion or for an everyday natural look. Remember girls, beauty lies in the details.

Fake eyelashes are really big this season. They complement a heavy make-up look as well as a simple, natural look. Don’t be afraid to add some drama to your eyes.

Bianca Louzado of Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers will not only teach you how to use false eyelashes, but also show you how you can enhance your real lashes perfectly with this simple three-step process.

#Step 1-

Curl your lashes using an eyelash curler. Start right from the root of the lash line for perfectly curled lashes.

#Step 2-

Apply mascara in layers on your lashes, starting at the top layer of the eyelash and comb it outward. Once this coat has dried a little, you can apply another coat at the base of the lashes all the way to the tip.

Mascara must be applied three times for a voluminous effect.

2

#Step 3-

You want nothing but the best to look glamorous, hence, avoid synthetic tacky looking eyelashes. Once the glue on these false lashes gets a little dried out and becomes sticky, place them where the lashes naturally begin, look down and press the lashes against the lash line first in the centre followed by the outer edge and finally the inner corner.

Give it two minutes to dry, and then run a dark liner right at the root of the lashes to cover up any white glue that might be visible.

Curl your lashes, both fake and real, with an eyelash curler. This will make the false lashes on your eyelids feel more comfortable. This step will also prevent your eyes from looking too heavy and made up.

Now comes the tricky part. Most girls don’t know how to remove the false lashes. All you have to do is remove the lash like it’s a sticker. Pick it up from the outer corner and move towards the inner corner and it’s done!

Here is the detailed tutorial:

Mother”s Day Special – She & Her: A Tribute to Motherhood

Mother”s Day Special – She & Her: A Tribute to Motherhood

Celebrating Mother’s Day with a Twist

“Successful mothers are not the ones that have never struggled; they are the ones that never give up, despite the struggles.”- Sharon Jaynes

On this very special day, Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers showed the beautiful relationship between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law with a twist.

Mother’s Day isn’t as simple a day as it sounds. It is a day where all of us show our love and care for our mothers. The fun part is when different types of mothers come into the picture: the wife’s mother, the husband’s mother, or even a stepmom. The question is how do you celebrate with all of them?

 

The trickiest relationship of them all is the one shared between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law. Or is it? We all think that mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law don’t get along, but it isn’t so.

We have all heard the amazing things every mother has to say about her daughter. So, this Mother’s Day, Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers brings to you this video with a special twist. “She & Her” reflects on the beautiful relationship between a mother and daughter. It is also bursting the huge bubble of the myth that we all live in i.e. that mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law don’t get along.

Times are changing and so are the dynamics of a mother/daughter-in-law relationship. It’s not like the old days when this relationship more was more formal. Not all mothers-in-law are considered evil today and we can learn this from the real life experience of a few mothers-in-law  and daughterd-in-law shared in the video. In the “She” part of the video the mothers-in-law, not only had some wonderful things to say about their daughters-in-law, but also they have appreciated them and the things they have done for not only their sons but also for the family as a whole.

The “Her” part of the video is the response of all the daughters-in-law. All brides-to-be have had the thought “what if my mother-in-law is like one of the evil ones we see in TV serials?” once before getting married. Even though most of them won’t admit it. Here, the daughters-in-law take a moment and thank their beautiful mothers-in-law for all that they do for them.

Celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend and take a moment to think about all those things our mothers have done for us in our lives. And for all the mothers it’s time to feel gratitude for the blessings your children really are.

Jewellery Care – DIY Tips | Truly Bridal By Kalyan Jewellers

Jewellery Care – DIY Tips | Truly Bridal By Kalyan Jewellers

Hi Everyone!

Jewellery is the most important element of an Indian wedding; this is an undeniable fact! Weddings are all about the shine and the glitter a bride is wearing. Be it a family heirloom or a piece that a bride receives from her parents, they all hold a special place in any girl’s life. However, they also need proper care & maintenance. Taking good care of your wedding and trousseau jewellery will add that extra charm to your look every time you wear it.

Shreya Jain, jewellery expert for Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers, will share some tips on how to take care of your jewellery in the easiest possible ways. So, all the brides-to-be, keep these tips in mind and don’t take your wedding jewellery for granted.

# The Glittering Gold

To maintain the shine of your gold jewellery, jewellers usually recommend getting it polished regularly. Washing it with soap is a big no-no! Gold jewellery should never be put in a bowl of soapy water. Jewellery should be rubbed with a clean cloth or a dry toothbrush to clean the engraving and then be cleaned with a cotton cloth dipped in lukewarm water.

Girls, don’t forget to dry out your jewellery before storing it in a box or pouch.

# Polki Sets

Your polki set is super-super prone to moisture. If you keep it in the velvet box given to you by the jeweller, chances are, you can avoid the moisture and prevent your jewellery from losing its shine. Make sure you put all your sets in separate boxes in order to avoid damage resulting from entangling.

# Wedding Ring

We girls just want to show off that big rock all the time! However, you don’t want to damage it. Though, diamonds are forever, remove your precious ring while you are in the kitchen or doing other household chores.

For a new bride, it’s an amazing feeling to be able to flaunt her prized possessions. Hence, following these simple tips and making a little effort will help you in preserving your trousseau jewellery for many more years! So share these tips with all the new brides and the brides-to-be!

The Bohemian Bridal Makeup Look | Truly Bridal By Kalyan Jewellers

The Bohemian Bridal Makeup Look | Truly Bridal By Kalyan Jewellers

Hi Everyone!

The wedding is something most women have dreamt about since their childhood. Mostly, all brides are expected to doll up and sit pretty but if you’re a bride who is free-spirited and wants to be different, Shreya Jain, Jewellery and Beauty Expert for Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers, has picked out a perfect makeup look which is totally off-beat and true to your Bohemian spirit. A Boho bride is all about subtle, no-fuss makeup!

#Radiant Glow:

Women who prefer the natural look over heavy makeup, will love this look; it’s fresh, glowing and playful. A lot actually depends on your skin tone. Remember to not keep your foundation too loud. A bronzer will accentuate your cheekbones, without making it look gaudy. For the cheeks, stick to a soft pink blush, as it works for almost all skin tones.

# Eyes:

In order to get your Boho makeup right, start with your eyes. A light primer and a concealer can add to your radiance and help you get the look right. Minimalism is what is what you need! So, choose an eye shadow that is a shade closest to your skin tone, this would bring a glow to your skin making you look fab!

Dark brown eyeliners are the best to use because they bring out an intense glow in your eyes! Once done, apply false lashes and marry them with your real lashes using thick mascara coats.

# Lips

For the lips, it would be best to stick to lip stainers with a peachy-nude touch. If you choose to use a lipstick, remember to have a tone lighter than the other color tones on your face, or else it would mess up the balance of your Boho Chic look.

#Hairdo

To complete your look, opt for voluminous messy curls or a messy fishtail braid. Along with elaborate headgear or a beautiful handmade flower crown if you are in the mood to have some more fun with your look.

Here is Shreya Jain’s detailed tutorial on how to get the perfect Boho look:

All you brides-to-be out there, you know you want to look Boho Chic for at least one of your wedding functions! You can even do this makeup look for your friend’s wedding as well. Now’s your chance to rock your wedding, be light on the skin and look absolutely stunning at the same time!

Reinventing Heirlooms | Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers

Reinventing Heirlooms | Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers

Hi Everyone!

Girls, you probably didn’t care about your grandmother’s or mother’s wedding lehenga or all the other gorgeous pieces of clothing your mother has shown you over the years, and you couldn’t be bothered to even look at it. But as you being a new jouney, all the little things begin to matter to you. Heirlooms are typically clothes and jewelry that have been passed down from generation to generation. However, the morden day bride is reinventing what ‘heirloom’ menas to her and is incorporating them in a morden, practical yet thoughtful ways.

Sanna Vohra has picked out four heirlooms that brides and their families tend to give and showing you how to give it a modern twist to your oufits and still look glam.

#1 Saree

Does your mom have gorgeous and traditional Kanjeevaram  or Benarasi sarees that aren’t being used? You can use them in a number interesting ways and give them a modern twist. You can think at converting them into amazing anarkalis. Don’t worry, the feel of saree will still be there, while you dazzle in an Anarkali.  If you are the adventurous type, you can convert sarees to saress dresses. It is an ideal wear for any part event. You can even convert sarees into skirts, or convert it into a crop top that you can use for the Haldi ceremony.

#2 Revamp that Lehenga

Are you struggling to select the right outfits for your wedding functions? You can use your mother’s lehenga that has been lying in her closet, unused for ages. A half lehenga is an amazing choice for your mehendi ceremony – it will make it easy for you to move around during the function.  You can even look into changing its borders and wear it over a corset.

#3 Dupatta

A traditional Phulkari or Kanjeevaram dupatta , wear these beautiful dupattas with a modern crop top and a skirt for a total chic look for your mehendi or haldi ceremony. To complete this look, wear statement earrings and coloful bangles with it.

Reinventing Heirlooms | Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers

#4 Fix that Saree

If you can’t use a saree due to it’s tattered borders, you can stitch a new border on it keeping the color scheme in mind. And it will be as good as new. If you have a plain saree and you are out of ides… we suggest you go in for block printing. This will give your saree a new and beautiful look.

So what are you girls waiting for???

Go and raid your mother’s closet and get some unique and innovative dresses for your wedding functions and post wedding dinners.

The Quintessential Gujarati Bride | Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers

The Quintessential Gujarati Bride | Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers

Hi Everyone!

Weddings are a big affair in India. The best thing about Indian weddings is that a wedding in one part of the country is starkly different from a wedding in another part of the country. Be it the bridal outfits, the jewellery, customs and traditions, you name it!

Every bride is different too. There is so much that goes into the bride’s ensemble. The outfit, make-up, hair, and shoes- these combinations are endless. However, the most important thing for any bride is her jewelry.

Today, we have Devika Patel, a Kashmiri-Gujarati wedding expert from the Truly Bridal By Kalyan Jewellers brigade, to take us through her culture and tell us how a typical Gujarati bride picks out her wedding jewelry.

A Gujarati bride is decked up in jewelry from head to toe, since investing in jewelry is a big part of simply being a Gujarati. Here are some of the trends that are followed by a typical Gujarati bride:

The fight between gold v/s diamonds. For a Gujarati girl, it’s obviously BOTH! Gold jewelry is evergreen among the Gujaratis- as it matches with every kind of outfit. Gold is also a very good investment for the future.

As the saying goes, ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’. WRONG!! The new saying goes something like this, ‘Diamonds are a Gurajarti girl’s best friend’. Gujaratis take their diamonds very seriously… as it is the hub of diamonds and most of them go through the hands of a polisher in Gujarat. Heavy diamond sets can be worn at any occasion – sangeet, cocktail or even wedding reception.

The Quintessential Gujarati Bride | Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers

All the bride-to-be girls, there is a lot more to experiment when it comes to jewelry now. Make way for the must have hand jewelry-haath phools, these make sure that your hands do all the talking.

A pair or two of statement earrings. Not that there is ever a time when we girls don’t want to wear jewelry, but in case you are in such a mood, a pair of statements will come in handy. You can wear anything and a pair of statement earrings, and you are good to go.

Payals, which are usually gifted to the bride by her in-laws on her Roka. This is an essential part of the bride’s collection. You can wear it to any of your pre-wedding or your wedding functions and it will add a girly touch to your look.

You can even wear these baubles after your wedding with a twist. Here is how:
Pair your RaaniHaar with a Tunic
Chaandan Haar with an Evening Gown
Payal with Pant Saree
Haath Phool with an Indo-Western outfit
Girls, the options you have today are unlimited, so don’t be scared to experiment.
