Bridal makeup is all about striking the perfect balance between your eyes, lips and the outfit. As your eyes and lips are the parts of your face where most amount of colour is going to be added, the end result has to be synced to perfection. The eyeshadow and lip colour combination should be spot on for the makeup to look flawless. Fortunately, here are some eye makeup and lipstick combinations that can never go wrong when it comes to bridal makeup…
- Gold eyes + Red lips
- Mauve eyes + Pink lips
- Smokey brown eyes + Nude lips
- Olive green eyes + Pale pink lips
- Burgundy eyes + Plum lips
Gold eyes + Red lips
This classic bridal eye shadow and lip colour combination can work with any lehenga that’s dark coloured, for example red, maroon, deep green, navy blue or purple. This combination has the power to make your look flattering as a whole and that’s what you want when you’re the bride! It might seem like you’re playing safe with this combination, but hey, if it’s working perfectly with your outfit then why not?
You can achieve this look with the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold and French Rose and Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Colour in the shade Drenched Red for pigmented and long-lasting makeup!
Mauve eyes + Pink lips
Mauves look flattering on all skin tones and if you’re leaning more towards muted, subtle eyes, this is the shade you should trust! This shade is also high on versatility as it can take you from a soft glam day look to a smoked out night look in no time. All you gotta do is add some depth in the outer corner of your eye with a dark brown or black eye shadow for the evening. Pink lips are a perfect fit for this look!
We love the mauve and pink shades from the Lakmé 9 to 5 Eye Quartet in Silk Route accompanied by Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Colour in Silky Blush!
Smokey brown eyes + Nude lips
Let your eyes do all the talking by opting for deep creased smokey eyes that are our absolute favourite. Brown smokey eyes are a better option as opposed to black as they’re more versatile when it comes to various coloured outfits, dark or pale. And with so much happening around your eyes, the lips can stay muted with a stunning nude shade that goes with your skin tone! This combo is great heavily embellished lehengas.
Olive green eyes + Pale pink lips
Olive green eye shadow is yet another shade that suits all Indian skin tones and works like magic with reds, golds, yellows and greens which are the most common lehenga shades that brides opt for. A smooth, glossy and pale pink lip complements the olive shade making the look a perfect package for the bride.
Burgundy eyes + Plum lips
You can never go wrong with burgundies and plums as a combination as they belong to the same family and blend with each other really well. Opt for this combination if you’re wearing a bright pink or a gold lehenga. We place our best bet on a full gold lehenga as the makeup will look perfectly balanced with it!
