When we were just starting to get over Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s fairytale wedding and return to our sad lives, the newlyweds distracted us again as they posed for the shutterbugs on the day of their Delhi reception.

Being the Sabyasachi loyalists they are, both of them chose to don traditional Sabya outfits in conventional bridal colours. We loved Anushka’s makeup look that was the perfect combination of subtle and glamorous. Her flawless skin, strong brows and sleek hair were the highlights of her look. Let’s decode it for you…

Anushka Sharma Wedding Reception Makeup Look

Prep: Anushka Sharma’s flawless skin is not just a result of good makeup, but also the quality of her skin. It’s important to spend time in prepping your skin pre makeup. It’ll make for a smooth surface for your makeup to sit on.

In addition to cleansing, toning and moisturising, exfoliate your skin well. This will help get rid of dead skin cells and result into smoother, more supple skin.

Now, let’s get into a stepwise breakdown of her makeup…

Step 1: Priming your face is always recommended before you do your foundation; it helps makeup last longer and blurs your pores to avoid a cakey, uneven makeup finish. Rely on the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer to do the job!

Step 2: Next, start evening out your skin tone using a foundation that can guarantee sheer coverage and hydration (we love the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation.) Blend it seamlessly into your skin using a stippling brush or a damp beauty blender.

Step 3: Use the Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter to add on to the glow on your face because let’s be honest–who can resist a beaming, blinding highlight?

Step 4: For your eyes, start with the orange hue from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in French Rose and drag it up all the way to the crease. Mix it with a brown hue. Next, use the dark brown hue from the same palette and blend it towards the outer corner of your eye. Draw a neat wing using the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner. For your lower lash line, use the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal. Finish the eye makeup look with a heavy coat of mascara; use the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara that ensures length as well as volume!

For a structured and a defined face, fill your brows using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil and seal the deal with a clear brow gel.

Step 5: Anushka just doesn’t seem to get over a soft, nude lip. But, we’re not complaining as she does total justice to it! Dab some Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil lip colour in Soft Nude using your finger for a natural finish. Finish with a hint of gloss!
