Grooming the Groom

I just went to a wedding recently and the groom looked like he had just washed his face, put on the sherwani and he was ready! While most grooms also try and shave just before dressing up, this one was a little too extreme, he had the end of the day stubble look. While that works perfectly for a date after a long days work, for your wedding even YOU the Groom needs to look their best!!

chocolate facial anyone?!

Pre-wedding :

A few months before take out some 'me' time.

1. Go to a salon get a facial, manicure, pedicure and hair spa done. Repeat it every month! ideally you should start asap, but make sure you are on it atleast 3 months before!!

2. Wash your face daily at night!

3. Ask your mother/sister to make you some homemade packs or atleast uptan, Ubtan is the best way to improve your skin and de-tan, plus its the least embarrassing one to ask for.
Don't know how to make one?? Read it here, along with other home solutions (works for both boy and girl skins)

4. For Dark Knees and elbows just rub some sugar and lemon on it. (Put sugar in a bowl, squeeze half a lemon and then using the lemon as a loofah dip it in the mixture and rub it on knees or elbows)

5. Sunscreen is your best buddy!! Save the tanned look for post honeymoon. Every single morning put on your sun screen. For Indian Skin SPF 30-50 works well.
(There is an SPF 100 from Lotus, not sure if its useful or what, have you used it?!)

Week of the wedding :
 Get your teeth cleaned from a dentist, how ever pretty they might be get them cleaned from a dentist.

3 days before functions : 
1. Get a facial done , not on the day of an event but 3 days before!
2. Manicure-Pedicure
3. Hair Spa
4. Body Polish ( this is to make your skin look nice, shiny and healthy)
5. Body packs
6. If your tooo hairy then a bleach and waxing or shaving would be good too...ask your bride-to-be

On the Day of the wedding :
Since you'll be getting makeup done later in the day its best to not let anyone put haldi on your face. (and yes you will be getting makeup done)
Go for a proper shave
Get Groom makeup done
sherwani's patka draped and viola your ready!!!

Groom Makeup

What is it??
No they won't put lipstick on you! But what they will do is make your skin look amazing. Groom makeup majorly consists of a proper foundation. The Best kind is an Airbrush makeup or an HD makeup, depending upon your skin type.

Aashmeen Munjal
Is it expensive??
Compared to Bridal makeup its pretty cheap. Starting from Rs. 5,000 for Airbrush makeup done from top names like Aashmeen Munjal. To give you an idea, Bridal Airbrush Makeup from such star names starts from Rs. 20,000. So yes its cheap.

Where can I get it done??
So far I only know Aashmeen Munjal who does this, and I have seen a groom who got it done from her and he looked great. On the day of the wedding I could sense there is something different about him he looks more 'prince-charming' type, but thought of it as a pre-wedding glow (do guys get that ?!) it was quite later he told me he had makeup on. So CIB certainly vouches for Aashmeen Munjal.

 I have called up Lakme and Vidya Tikari both says they don't do groom makeup.

To get more information its easiest to ask your bride-to-be to help you out on this, her makeup artist might be able to suggest somebody. Or ask your local salons.

Readers if you know anyone who does groom makeup than please help and comment below.

Why should I get it done??
 Remember you'll be standing next to your dazzling princess. She has been working towards this ever since you popped the question. For her, be the perfect other half.
