Brown is one colour that not just pairs well with a golden outfit, but it also looks lovely on most Indian skin tones. Everything about this makeup look — right from the shimmery brown lids to the perfectly contoured cheekbones and the matte brown pout — screams understated elegance, and we are in love!
02. Statement pout

If you are someone who loves pairing their traditional attire with a bold pout, then you definitely need to check out this makeup look Gauhar Khan wore for her wedding. We love how the bold red pout instantly brightens up her face, while the minimal, barely-there makeup helps balance out the outfit, jewellery and the bold lipstick.
03. Burgundy lids

If you plan to wear a rose gold or dusty gold lehenga, it would be a good idea to add a bit of warm colour on your eyelids. We are totally crushing over this matte burgundy smokey eye. When paired with a dewy complexion, some natural flush and a creamy matte mauve lip, it makes for such a beautiful wedding makeup look for the minimalist bride.
04. Bronze glitter

For those wearing a golden outfit for either the reception, cocktail party or sangeet, this bronze glittery makeup look is an absolute stunner. If you are wearing this eye makeup, ensure that you keep the rest of your look subtle to strike the perfect balance.
05. Black smokey eye and nude lip

You simply can never go wrong with the traditional black smokey eye and nude lip combo. If you are a bride who prefers to play it safe with tried-and-tested makeup trends, then this is a classic makeup look that will pair beautifully with your golden lehenga.
