Your individual bridal style will be highlighted by the make-up look you choose for the wedding day and plays a crucial part in showcasing the beauty of a bride. The over-the-top approach to make up is passé and the modern Indian bride is not satisfied with a random melange of products thrown together garishly. Make-up trends dictate a glamorous, yet natural feel to bridal beauty looks. Highlighting naturally lovely features and camouflaging blemishes, in a suitably seamless way is what it’s all about. Take some inspiration from some of these gorgeous make-up looks and get the perfect look for your pheras.

Effortlessly Natural

If you’re not a fan of heavy foundation and eye shadow, this is the look for you. Start with a light coverage foundation to even out skin tone, some kajal to line the eyes, a bit of mascara and a gentle peachy red lipstick to finish the look. This look is for a bride who has naturally flawless skin and prefers to look effortlessly natural. We recommend this look for a day wedding when there is a lot of natural light around.

Subtle Glamour

If your pheras are during the day but you still want that wow-factor to your make-up, then this is the look for you. The eyes take centre stage with a dramatic use of eye-liner on the top eyelid, with extra eyelashes adding the bit of day time glamour. Naturally iridescent foundation gives a glowy complexion and a barely-there peachy nude lipstick adds that element of subtlety. This is a simple, yet sophisticated look that’s very modern and chic.

Intense Goddess

Do you wish for a more glamorous look for your pheras? Then be sure to explore this bridal look. Hinged on a smoky eye, this look involves heavy eye make-up starting with thick eyeliner, kajal and extra thick eyelashes with loads of mascara. A warm tones eye shadow is used on the top lid and is then smudged subtly along the eye’s water line. In keeping with the goddess theme, the bone structure of the face is brought forward through contouring. A final sweep of highlighter on the cheekbones ensures that light reflects off the bride’s face in a gorgeous way. This look is finally pared down with a matte peachy pink lipstick that gives a fresh feel.

Charming Dancer

Many South Indian brides are inspired by the beautiful Bharatnatyam dancers and their sartorial style. This make-up look captures the sweetness of an Indian dancer and elevates it to bridal finery. A simple wing tipped eyeliner circling the eyes, with dewy skin and a ruby pink lipstick ensures a wonderful effect. An ode to naïve glamour, this look is feminine and classic.

Complete Diva

If you want to look like a true diva during your pheras, this is the look for you. This shimmery look pays homage to starry silver tones. A bold eyeliner, metallic eye shadow, contoured foundation and a frosty lipstick makes this a highly glamorous look. You will sure to be the centre of attention and turn heads at your pheras.

Be sure to have beauty trials with your make-up artist to choose what works for you. The final makeup and beauty look you wear for your wedding ceremony should reflect your personal aesthetic and should be well within your own personal comfort zone.
