Looking like a vision on her big day, the biggest lesson to learn from the newest bride on the block is to keep your makeup minimal on your wedding day. For the D-Day, Patralekhaa has kept her makeup minimal with a glowy base, shimmery eye shadow and bold lip colour to match her traditional outfit. Her huge smile is definitely the best thing about her entire look, tbh!

While we wish to look our best on our wedding day, the idea is not to go overboard with our makeup. You need to strike a balance and focus and highlight one feature on your face to look your best. Take Sonam Kapoor Ahuja for example, the actress went with soft peach cheeks and minimal overall makeup for her wedding day, The focus of her entire look were the tinted and strained red lips that amped up her otherwise understated look.
Choose matte makeup like Priyanka Chopra

While we’re all for dewy, glossy looks, when you’re finalising your look for your wedding day, we’d suggest you stick to a matte base like Priyanka Chopra. Using matte makeup will help make your skin look flawless and smooth under all the lights and flashes and most importantly in the wedding photographs.
Go for fuss-free hairstyle like Deepika Padukone

Elaborate updos and hairstyles might look gorgeous, but under the weight of your heavy veils and hair jewellery like mang tikas and matha-pattis, it might cause quite a disaster. That’s why we suggest you take a leaf out of Deepika Padukone’s wedding style book and stick to fuss-free hairstyles like a sleek or messy bun. This will help make your viel sit easily on your head and also make it easier to wear all the head jewellery that you wish to add.
Highlighter FTW like Anushka Ranjan

Another beautiful actress who recently tied the knot is Anushka Ranjan. The diva left us all in awe in her lavender wedding lehenga, but it was her reception look that we’re currently crushing over. Shining like a star, Anushka made sure to apply liberal strokes on highlighter along all the high points of her face to add that gorgeous glow to her look. So, if you wish to balance your foundation, concealer and bronzer - add some highlighter to your face and you’re ready to slay!
