1. Keep your makeup matte

To make sure you shine like a star on your big day and also in the pictures, keep your base makeup matte and don’t go overboard with your highlighter. Ditch the dewy, glossy look as it will highlight and emphasise the texture and unevenness of your skin in the pictures. Going for a well-powdered, matte look will help make your skin appear smooth even when all the flashlights and cameras are turned to you.
2. You can never go wrong with red lips

Keep your red lipsticks handy while getting ready for your big day. Priyanka opted for a classy red lipstick for her lips but what we love is that instead of simply coating her lips with lipstick, she gave them a stained look and it looked gorgeous. This way you can highlight your lips, without being too loud or intense. The blotted, flushed look makes your lips appear delicate and gives an overall soft look to your face.
3. Add a flowery touch to your tresses

It’s always a good idea to add flowers to your hair. Besides giving your hair a beautiful and traditional-looking accessory, it also makes you look like an Indian goddess. If you aren’t too sure about how to use flowers in your hair, take a leaf out of PeeCee’s mehndi lookbook. Tie up your hair in a messy low bun and add a gajra of mogra, hydrangeas or pink and white roses to amp up your look.
4. Let your natural brow show

This year is all about dramatic and natural eyebrows, so let your natural shape grow and show on your wedding day - just like Priyanka. Priyanka shaped her eyebrows to frame her face nicely and made them appear fuller at all her wedding events. So, keep your brows simple and natural and you'll shine bright like this diva.
5. Focus and highlight one feature

We want to look our best at our wedding, but that doesn’t mean being all over the place with your makeup. We think focusing and highlighting one feature on your face, like Priyanka, can do the trick for you. For her Christian wedding, Priyanka opted for a berry-tinted lipstick that made her lips the star of the look. Similarly, for her Hindu wedding, she focused on her eye makeup and we don’t need to tell you how radiant she looked then.
