This year, Bollywood has given us bigger weddings than movies! With most of the Bollywood divas like Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra; all taking the plunge one after the other, this year brought us enough and more brides look to ogle at!
The beauty fanatics that we are, we cannot help but draw out inspiration from these very, many kinds and cultures of bridal looks that Bollywood brought us this year. Let’s take look and make notes...
Anushka Sharma was the one who started off the wedding season in Bollywood and what a gorgeous start it was. Dressed in her Sabyasachi ensembles Anushka explored some diverse bridal looks.
Anushka’s bridal look was combined with nude and peachy tones that complemented her floral wedding outfit. Her eyeshadow was a blend of peachy pink shadows and smudged brown eyeliner that gave her eyes a beautiful definition. The rose-tinted lips and minimal makeup on the cheeks further enhanced her natural beauty. She dressed her skin in bare minimum which was a rather unusual thing to do for an Indian bride. Needless to say, we loved it!
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja was a bona fide Bollywood bride! While it was a true-blue Punjabi wedding with all of Bollywood in attendance and the usual gaana-bajana, the highlight of the wedding remained Sonam’s looks!
The fashionista that Sonam is, her bridal looks were unconventional, traditional oh-so chic; all at once. From her red bridal outfit that she teamed with minimal makeup to her super comfy reception ensemble with defined eyes and red lips; everything about her bridal makeup made a style statement.
The newly wed Deepika Padukone had both Konkani and Sindhi weddings; and she donned traditional attired for both weddings. Both times, her makeup was neutral, perfectly showing off her natural beauty. Her hair was center-parted and tied back in a sleek style, which allowed for statement maang tikkas to stand out.
Deepika chose warm toned makeup for her Sindhi bridal look, keeping her face and lips nude. Her eyes were the focus of attention and were dark and Smokey, with a hint of gold. For the South Indian ceremony also she stuck to a warm, neutral palette and kept her face and lips in the brown-beige zone. Her eyes were accented and brows filled into perfection.
Neha Dhupia broke the internet with her surprise wedding to her best bud, Angad Bedi. One summer morning Neha’s bridal pictures flooded the internet where she was seen wearing a beautiful Anita Dongre lehenga and her muted makeup complimented this minimalist bridal look. The peachy tones of her makeup, the mauve lips, basic eyeliner and a classic bridal bun adorned in gajras completed her look.
The most recent bride of the lot, Priyanka Chopra is now Mrs. Nick Jonas. The nuptials took place at the Umaid Bhavan Palace and with both the ceremonies, Priyanka gave us some major bridal look goals.
For her Christian wedding she chose to keep her makeup and hair non-fussy and let the dress and the impressive veil take center-stage. She opted for red lips and kept the rest of her face neutral and has kept her eyes simple too, with just liner and mascara. Her gorgeous eyebrows are filled in and brushed out to look natural and full. For the Indian ceremony, she looked stunning in a red Sabyasachi lehenga and stuck to the same makeup formula as her Christian wedding, red lips and neutral makeup, so her dress was the focus of all attention.
