As lovely as monsoon weddings are, they can come with their own set of challenges. Wardrobe and hair woes aside, your makeup has to adapt to the gloomy and humid weather. And don’t be fooled, there is more to creating a makeup look for a monsoon wedding than just a fool-proof base. It should also be glamorous without adding OTT details that might run down your face if you get caught in a drizzle!
Call it fortuitous but the trending bridal looks for this season follow this simple rule as well. Given that weddings are either much smaller or virtual during the pandemic, makeup looks have been toned down — in intensity and not WOW factor — to match the changing times. Here are five trendy bridal makeup looks that are perfect for a monsoon wedding!
Lay off on the pops of colour and opt for a well-prepped and glowing complexion for this one. Build a glowing base with the Lakme Absolute Undercover Gel Face Primer and highlight the centre of your face. Fluttery lashes, nude lips and strong brows finish off this stunning look.

Copper lids and red lips
Classic doesn’t have to mean predictable. We love how the shimmery lids and cherry lips against the matte base take this look several notches higher — super elegant and pretty. What say?

Au naturel nude
If you’re planning to wear a heavy lehenga with heavy jewellery, then opting for a natural and nude makeup look can do wonders for your overall look. Go for full coverage, flawless base, paired with kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude pout to nail that no-makeup makeup look.
