So you thought the no-makeup look was only for Hollywood stars and their relentless selfies? Well, this universally alluring look has taken everyone by storm- and we mean everyone. Who would have ever thought that Indian brides would move past their heavy makeup days to sport light, dewy, fresh looks on the big day?
Sanjana Vaswani Bride
Let the ubiquity of this look not surprise you. Though it might seem like the heavy makeup is what goes best with wedding trousseau, you might want to reconsider after a cursory glance at how these pretty maidens have done their looks to perfection.
What strikes us about this look is the soft peach that complements the off white in this bride’s dupatta. The kundan set makes for a heavy accessory, but that doesn’t put off the overall look, thanks to the minimal makeup. Moreover, the strong eyebrow game and smokey eyes make up for the lack of glitz- and thankfully so!
For all those brides opting for dual tones in their wedding dress, don’t fret about incorporating the shades in your makeup! You don’t want to end up looking like a play doll with a matching painted face, do you? Again, strike a balance by making one shade stand out- but that’s it. Keep the eyes and cheeks to a minimal with some bronzer and basic eye makeup.
Were you worried about maroon overpowering your look? This bride rocks her look by keeping the dark colours limited to her accessories and choli, and chooses to go au naturale with her makeup. It’s a win win!
If you thought winter was the time for heavy dark makeup, you were mistaken! Avoid looking like a vamp from back in the day, and opt for a dewy look even with a velvet outfit! Take cues from this classy bride!
