The biggest concern of every bride-to-be is how they will look on their wedding day and this starts with their face. No matter how much you define your eyes or lips or try and take the attention away with your hair style, the truth is, it's your skin that matters the most. Perfect, flawless, smooth and healthy, radiant skin is something every woman can achieve when they use the right products. At our Asiana Bridal Show we gave Asiana reader and future bride Pavan a special makeover, to show how this is possible. Roshni, founder of Roshni Hair and Makeup used products across Estée Lauder Companies' multitude of brands and showed Pavan, how they work for her skin, resulting in a fresh and beautiful look; where Pavan looked and felt the best she's ever been.

Watch the makeover video below and see Roshni's tips for how to try the look yourself:

Before you apply any make-up,  spend some time preparing the skin - a lot of women underestimate the importance of using the correct skincare, but when it comes to your big day, getting your complexion looking healthy and glowy is crucial, a process that takes months, not just the week before your wedding. Think of it as the gym for your skin.

Prep your skin first by cleaning using the MAC Lightful Marine Bright Formula Moisture Cream on top, to seal in the moisture and eliminate any dryness. Spend time working the moisturiser into the face, this will boost radiance by increasing blood circulation and bringing fresh oxygen to the cells.

Primers are good for smoothing out the skin – they fill in pores and reduce the look of fine lines. Apply the Smashbox Photofinish primer pore minimizing - which is great to prime and smooth any fine lines, to get beautiful skin ready for the foundation.

Next, use Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Foundation – it has an easy to build formula, which you can use to create a light finish or add more if you need extra coverage. It has a light consistency, which is nice, as it won’t feel cakey on the skin and is available in 31 shades, a perfect match is available for everyone!

Next, use the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit to camouflage the redness and blemishes around the nose and under the eyes. This kit includes a creamy concealer and setting powder to give a longer lasting finish, a must for all brides.

Now, to set the foundation, use the Smashbox Photofilter Creamy Powder Foundation - Shade 5. This powder gives a natural matte finish and is perfect for touch-ups throughout the day.

Also use the Tom Ford Illuminating Powder along the cheek bones and forehead to give a beautiful glow to the skin .

Now that the base is done we need to start by contouring the face. While foundation is great for evening out the skin, it can sometimes remove the natural contours of the face. This is where the Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit comes in handy.

Use it across the jaw line, along the bridge of the nose , sweep it across the temples and where ever the brides features need enhancing and definition to rebuild depth back into the face.

Finally to add some colour onto the face, Roshni uses the Tom Ford Cheek Colour in Wicked - it has a soft, rosy semi matt finish. Finish off the look with a dusting of the Creme De La Mer The Illuminating Powder across the bridge of the nose and cheek bones to give a beautiful highlight to the face and a pop of shimmer.
