One of the most important days in a woman’s life is her wedding day. Every bride wants to look her best on her big day and undoubtedly her make-up should complement and enhance her beautiful Indian bridal wear!
There are a number of looks the bride can go for to match her make up- with her Indian bridal wear to give her the perfect look! Our top make-up tips and looks with Indian bridal wear include the soulful and bright look, the cool blue look, the glamorous gold look, the glittery and smokey-eyed look and the modern Indian bride look.
The most popular make-up look brides opt for with Indian bridal wear is a soulful and bright look. The colour red is symbolic of love and compassion and when a bride is adorned in her stunning red bridal wear, her make-up should signify the same. Defined eyes with a light rose coloured lipstick are a classic combination. While, eye shadow with burnt hues and glitter gives brides an ethereal and regal demeanor. Opt for this look with your Indian bridal wear to look like the quintessential regal bride!
Cool blue make-up is extremely unique and matches flawlessly when Indian bridal wear is in a shade of blue adorned with gold. Blue make- up is bold, colourful and fun. Strongly defined lashes with icy blue and gold eye shadow can lend a pop of colour that enhances the bold blue Indian bridal wear. The bold tones of blue can be offset with light pink lipstick and blush to make the bride look trendy in blue!
Glamorous gold make-up is another bridal favourite. Shimmering gold eye shadow and glitter lends a sparkling effect to the bold highlighted eyes of the bride. The bride’s cheeks are accentuated in a bronze tone that brings out the glistening eye make-up and gives the bride the perfect sun-kissed look! Opt for a pink lipstick that has a slight tint in gold to add to the warm mood of the golden bride. This look suits wheatish and dusky complexions and makes the bride look a million pounds!
Glittery and smokey-eyed make-up adds an element of fun to the bride’s look. Smokey eyes also look edgy and can be worn by those brides who do not wish to stick to the typical bridal make-up norms. Shimmery gold eye shadow smoked with purple tones on well-defined eyes with pink blush and light lips is neither too loud nor too boring. While smokey eyes are edgy and bold and signify confidence, the pink blush and lips signifies the warmth of the bride.
Finally, make-up that suits modern Indian bridal wear is primarily for those brides that wish to have destination weddings where weddings can take place in the day as well. Modern brides prefer to keep their make-up more natural and minimalistic. Eyes are highlighted with Kohl or Kajal and eye shadow and blush is usually lighter. Lipstick however, is bright and can often be in bright pink, oranges or reds.
