Indian bridal makeup can not get better than this!
The wedding season is on and in full-swing, and what we have noticed with brides this season is that they are willing to experiment and not opt for the very loud look. Brides have come a long way, and have realized the importance of minimalism in their bridal makeup too. This is why, we can expect 2017 to be a mix of the east meets west saga, when it comes to wedding makeup for the bride. Most bridal makeup artists too are ramping up the scene with lesser pancake touches and more sultry eyes for the brides to flaunt, hot red lips remain a favorite, but brides are willing to play with tones of matte in wines and berries and burgundies too.
1. Hazel Keech’s dewy Indian bridal makeup sheen:
Cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s wife, Hazel Keech and their big fat Punjabi styled Indian wedding is much talked about. While Hazel was in a JJ Valaya brocade bridal ensemble, what we noticed with her sense of bridal makeup style was the importance played on minimalism. A cue Indian brides can take where the eyes were decked up sultry, the base was minimal. The dewy sheen on the brides face stole the show, and we don’t beg to disagree!
2. The natural look of Lisa Haydon:
Bollywood diva and celebrity Lisa Haydon tied her knot last year, and initiated the trend of the ‘nude bridal look’ for Indian Christian brides. Dolled up in a beautiful white bell-shaped bridal number, Lisa didn’t have much foundation, and her lips were kept nude to match her skin tone. The eyes were decked in a light shade of peach and pink to adore the look!
The gorgeous Bollywood star, Urmila Matondkar stunned us when she announced her silent and very private wedding with Kashmiri businessman and model Mohsin Akhtar. Dressed in a Manish Malhotra number for her wedding and in green bangles that complimented the look, Urmila made sultry statements in chic smokey touches for her eyes. Proof once again, the smokey look for Indian brides would never fade away!
4. The contoured brows of Divyanka Tripathi:
Television and sitcom celebrity, Divyanka Tripathi had a gorgeous Indian wedding to her name last year, and what we loved about her looks in the red lehenga or the blue one she wore at the events that followed, were the contoured eyebrows. In most cases, eyebrows for the bride are darkened to accentuate the facial features; Divyanka’s eyebrows though were contoured to finesse. The same can be done with an eye pencil before filling the brows up with shade.
5. Asin’s gorgeous winged liners:
Bollywood celebrity Asin, Ghajni fame tied the knot last year and rocked her wedding in two ways- the Christian style and the hindu style. While she went au naturale in her Christian bridal look to suit the Christian wedding; the hindu style wedding saw the gorgeous actress bring back the regal look of the seventies with winged liners and twiggy eyelashes.
6. Bipasha Basu’s Indian bridal makeup look:
Indian brides don’t need to necessarily have red hot lips at their weddings; peach and pinks too can play crucial roles to enhance the look of a bride. Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu proved just that when she posed for the shutter bugs at the reception party in peach lips; with a happy pout and her dream man in her arms too. Anything but red for this bong beauty!
