India Couture Week 2021 passed by in a flurry, but it left us with a stunning set of looks. And no, we're not just talking about the jaw-dropping bridal couture that was on display. We were in awe of the gorgeous beauty looks that went perfectly with each ensemble, and we managed to catch a bunch of bridal beauty trends that are going to be big this year.
If you're a bride-to-be, this one's for you. Here are all the bridal beauty trends we spotted at India Couture Week 2021. Take notes!
01. Flower power

While wearing flowers in your hair isn't exactly new for weddings, we sure love couturier Suneet Varma's slightly western take on it. Pining tiny flowers all over your locks can create a soft yet ethereal look — perfect for a modern-day bride-to-be — while giving you an extra dose of oomph you didn't know you needed.
02. Slicked back

This one's a little unexpected! While past editions have showcased beach waves and braids, curls and even pin-straight hair, slicked-back hair is relatively new in the bridal beauty scene — but boy is it reigning supreme! From being featured in the Dolly J, Pankaj and Nidhi, and Amit Agarwal shows, it’s clear that slicked-back hair is here to stay. If you're up for trying it out, you've got a bunch of options to choose from, too! You can go for a slicked-back bun or loose hair that's completely slick and comb in a few baby hairs on the side to add a little definition.
03. Saying I 'dew'

Dewy, glowy makeup was all over the runway at this year's edition of India Couture Week, and we couldn't be happier that our fave makeup trend has found its way into bridal beauty too. From Pankaj and Nidhi to Manish Malhotra, almost every designer's look showcased a glowing, radiant base — and we think it's the perfect vibe for wedding days!
04. All eyes on me

Whether it was Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna's electric, sparkly blue lids or this gorgeous crystal-encrusted lid look by Falguni and Shane Peacock, statement-making eye makeup seems to be the order of the season. Worried about how you're going to blink with all this crystal? Well, that's the pain of being trendy. JK, just scatter them sparingly instead!
05. Wingin' it

2021 decidedly belongs to eyeliner looks, and if you're a 2021 bride, get on the wing train already! This Tarun Tahiliani look is perfect for any bride who wants to keep things minimal and traditional but still make a slightly dramatic statement with big wings.
