The global pandemic has caused a lot of grief for us. From cancelled vacay plans to not being able to go for long drives in the monsoon, we are missing out on a lot this year. But none of the missed birthday parties or weekend sundowners will ever compare to the hassle that those who were supposed to tie the knot this year are facing.
While most to-be brides have decided to postpone their wedding, many are still going ahead with it — albeit with a limited guest list and social distancing norms in place.
Having said that, couples are opting for intimate ceremonies over video calls with their close family members and select friends amid the pandemic. Zoom weddings are getting trendier by the hour. But Zoom wedding or not, every bride deserves to look her glam best on her wedding day! So, if you have a Zoom wedding coming up, here are some beautiful, fuss-free makeup looks that you can sport on your special day.
01. Romantic matte blush

A matte base with a touch of blush eyeshadow and lipstick makes for a pretty, easy-to-do look. Accentuate your eyes by swiping on eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. Keep the rest of your makeup minimal and fill in your brows to add definition to your face.
02. Glitzy pink

Bridal MUAs use the neat trick of matching the statement detail of your shaadi ka joda to the makeup look. This makes the entire look cohesive and pictures well too. That is why we love this glitzy pink look that perfectly matches the feather-trimmed lehenga!
03. A pop of colour

As we mentioned before, pick one detail from your wedding ensemble and incorporate it into your makeup look. You can simply add a pop of colour to your lids using a hue that's tinted the same as your lehenga.
04. A red wedding

Even if you are not wearing red for your wedding, a red makeup look will always be chic. Defined brows aired with a touch of under-smoke on the eyes and a bold red lip look oh-so-sexy. Give finishing touches with sindoor and a red bindi!
05. Dewy nude

Wearing a nude makeup look for a desi wedding is previously unheard of! Yet, here’s how you can wear one for your Zoom wedding. Go with neutral tones and amp up the highlighter to draw focus to the highpoints of your face — apples of the cheek, bridge of the nose, chin and your forehead. Swipe up on a nude lip gloss and put on some voluminous falsies to amp up the glam factor.
