The new trends for bridal make-up are a combination of these extremes. Inspired by the new generation of millennial celebrity brides, we have decoded their makeup to bring you the best trends you can embrace for your own wedding.

Deepika had two ceremonies for her wedding to Ranveer Singh at Lake Como, Italy. For both the Konkani and the Sindhi wedding ceremony, she styled her makeup with a distinctly natural look, with an emphasis on smoky eyes. She radiated a bridal glow with a medium coverage base, minimal concealer under the eyes and accented the natural look with matte finish skin. For the Konkani ceremony she had smudged kohl smoky eyes with nude lipstick that drew the attention to her beautiful brown eyes. For the Sindhi ceremony Deepika continued with the emphasis on heavy eye makeup with dark eyeliner and metallic glitter eye-shadow. She chose a natural pink lipstick to complete the look, while retaining focus on the eyes. The makeup was completed with heavy mascara and perfectly sculpted eyebrows.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had an extravagant three-day wedding in India that included two very different wedding ceremonies. The first was a Christian white wedding, where the bridal makeup included subtle eye makeup and slightly flushed cheeks, with a bold fuchsia lip. There was minimal focus on the eyes and the pink lipstick drew attention to her full lips. For the Hindu wedding ceremony , the following day Priyanka went with natural face makeup and a slightly red lipstick to match her traditional sindoor red lehenga. In both looks her skin shimmered with a natural glow from mineralized dusting powder and the complexion was evened out with a bit of concealer. She chose a matte finish for the lipstick shades, which highlighted her lips as the most prominent feature on her face.


3. Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma made for a beautiful bride with her naturally beautiful skin at her wedding. She stayed close to their natural skin tone and went all natural with a peachy blush look, with barely there makeup. To match her understated light pink wedding lehenga, the eye makeup was very soft; with brown kohl drown around the eyes, eye-shadow in subtle tones of peach-pink and lots of mascara. The overall effect was elegant and youthful. Here lips had a natural pink lip gloss over them, so that made her look really natural and pretty.
