We’ve seen plenty of celebrity weddings over the past couple of months and amongst all the things we’ve kept track of, the bride’s makeup is definitely on the top. From Anushka Sharma to Sonam Kapoor, Neha Dhupia and our very own Ayesha Khan we’ve certainly noticed a similar makeup trend and we are here to dissect it for you. If you’re a bride to be who’s looking for wedding makeup inspiration, follow along with this post.
The base makeup for all the brides has been kept minimal. All the recent dulhans were seen wearing a sheer coverage, luminous foundation allowing their natural bridal glow to peak through. Speaking of the “glow,” the highlight has been kept subtle to achieve that “glow from within” look. The contour has also been kept soft as no harsh contour lines can be seen on any of the brides. In fact, they seem to be wearing a light bronzer. As for the blush, it has been kept extremely natural and close to actual skin tone, so much so that it can barely be seen in the pictures.
The only real drama in the entire look is seen on the eyes but that too has been kept mellow, We see no over the top golds, glitters or cut crease but a nice soft smoky eye. The colors on the eyes have been placed strategically to enhance the natural contour of the crease. A neutral brown shadow has been blended all over the eye and some definition is added to the outer corners. As for the brows, they have kept somewhat bushy and absolutely no overlining or excessive filling is seen. And to add that traditional South Asian bridal look we saw the brides wearing some nice, dark kohl and a pair of wispy eyelashes.
All the brides this season ditched the traditional red and opted for flesh or peachy pink shades to tie the look together. The lipsticks used seem to be soft mattes and no extreme gloss was seen.
The Pakistani makeup artists also seem to be loving the ongoing bridal makeup trend. Popular makeup artist, Bina Khan posted Sonam’s picture and said she looks “lovely.”
While the Indian brides have definitely set the trend our gorgeous Pakistani brides are no less and look absolutely amazing whether they choose to go subtle or full glam.
