Don’t we all dream of having the perfect wedding; complete with a resplendent lehenga and exquisite jewellery?
Recently, ethnic wear brand, Mohey launched Alia Bhatt as the new face of their campaign, and boy are we stunned! Dressed in a regal red lehenga, Alia looks like an absolute dream. Sticking to her love for all things minimal, the petite actress is a sight to behold. We love how she has chosen to break away from heavy makeup and a ton of jewellery (did you notice that she isn’t wearing any earrings?) that is usually considered to be a mandate for a traditional Indian bride. Refreshing, don’t you think?
If you love Alia’s bridal look as much as we did, you have come to the right place. Brides-to-be, here’s a detailed look decode of this minimal bridal makeup look.
For this bridal look too, Alia has stuck to her usual fresh-as-a-daisy base makeup, but we aren’t complaining. We love how dewy her base makeup is. To achieve a similar base, remember to thoroughly moisturise your face before applying makeup. Start by applying the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer . This will cover pores, smoothen out skin texture and help your makeup last longer. Next, apply the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45. Infused with argan oil, this foundation will give your skin that dewy look, just like Alia’s. Next, use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer on the under-eye area, a little bit around your nose and mouth as well as on any other area that you feel needs that extra bit of coverage.
We love Alia’s contouring game here; it is super soft and subtle. To achieve a similar look, apply the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Cheek Contour in Rose Gold under your cheekbones, jawline and little bit on the sides of your forehead. Blend it all in for a seamless appearance. Next, use the highlighting shade from the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit palette and apply it to the high points of your face. This will make your face glow and give it that dewy finish. Finally, add a pop of colour to your cheeks by using the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color - Nude Cushion.
Alia has kept her eye makeup super simple and fuss-free. Start by applying the peach shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – French Rose in your crease. Next apply the pink shade from the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Silk Route all over your lid. Use the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal to line your upper and lower lid. Smudge it a little to give it a softer appearance. To finish this eye look, apply two coats of the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara – Black.
For the brows, simply brush your brows in an upward direction. Next, fill in the sparse areas using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil to give them a fuller appearance.
In sync with the theme of being a minimal bride, Alia sports a very pretty nude lip colour. Start by lining your lips using the Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Lip Definer – Rouge. Go over this lip liner with the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Natural Nude.
Alia Bhatt’s hairstyle needs a special mention here. Textured buns are pure love, but seeing Alia wear this as a bridal hairdo, is giving us all sorts of feels. Spray a generous amount of the Toni&Guy Casual : Sea Salt Texturising Spray to give your hair the right amount of hold and texture.
