The Anita Dongre summer bride was the definition of dreamy for us. Lehenga cholis in pastel hues, salwar suits with floral embroidery, flower crowns in the hair, romantic updos—it had all the makings of the perfect summer wedding. To top it all, the show had B-town’s lovebirds, Shahid and Mira Kapoor, playing the most gorgeous showstoppers with their aww-worthy antics! But know what caught our eye at this show of Lakmé Fashion Week? The minimal makeup that spelt summer for us! There was dewy skin, nude lips, chiseled cheekbones and soft eyes—just what a bride needs during the summer. If you wish to try the makeup look yourself, the stepwise guide below should help you do that…


Prepping is everything when it comes to a bridal makeup look. The Anita Dongre bridal look at Lakmé Fashion Week had flawless skin—one that has a subtle glow to it. If you’re looking to replicate this makeup look, start with prepping your skin. We suggest using the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser that’s non-greasy yet lends you the hydration of you need.


There’s immeasurable joy in creating an Indian bridal makeup look. Simply because it involves makeup that’s minimal, peach and pink toned. So in order for the colours to warm up on the face, you need to ensure that your skin looks dewy—a complete essential when it comes to being a summer bride/bridesmaid. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation. Not only is this one enriched with argan oil but it also promises medium to high coverage. Because of its argan oil content, it’ll also lend a dewy finish to your skin.


One of the most important parts about makeup when you’re the bride/bridesmaid is filling in your brows to enhance your features. Models at Dongre’s show at Lakmé Fashion Week wore their brows deep yet not overtly thick. We suggest going with something like the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil that’ll help you fill your brows in.


For the eyes, first use a wash of the brown eyeshadow from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette, Gold all over your eyelids and crease. Blend well and then go for the kajal. The Anita Dongre bride at Lakmé Fashion Week had her eyes kohl-lined ‘coz well, do we know an Indian bride without kohl? She doesn’t quite exist! Line your waterline and make sure you tightline your peepers. Use the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal, Black for this purpose. Next, finish off by using the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara on your lashes.


To bring warmth to your summer skin, we suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick, Pink that’ll lend your cheeks a flush of pink along with a hint of shimmer—just what a bride needs. Make sure you use the champagne-like shade in this brick to highlight the high points of your face so you have an added glow.


Finally for the lips, make sure you finish off by using a peachy coral toned lip colour that lends hydration to your lips yet stays for as long as you need it to. Find that perfect shade in the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color, Peaches n Cream lipstick. And ta-da! You have the perfect Anita Dongre bridal look from Lakmé Fashion Week!
