Creativity is the name of the game. Take a look at Neha Kakkar’s bridal makeup, where she chose to keep the focus on her bejewelled eyes. It is aptly dramatic yet subtle. To recreate this look, start with a light makeup base, highlight your cheeks and t-zone. Dab a soft pink shadow on your eyes and pack on tiny crystals to create this va-va-voom look.
02. Pop of colour
A wedding is a momentous day in every bride’s life. And if you wish to make a statement with your bridal makeup, then ditch the pastels and earthy eye shadows and choose unconventional, pop blues, greens or purple tones to make your eyes pop.
03. Sunkissed with minimal hues

The days of dressing up bold and bright from head to toe might as well be history now. The new era of close-knit weddings has given rise to going all minimal and proud. We love how ecstatic and beautiful this bride looks decked in nude brown lipstick, shimmery golden eyes, a classic eyeliner wing and muted blush on the cheeks.
04. Glow from within

This! This bridal makeup has all our hearts. Millennial brides are increasingly favouring flaunting their natural skin rather than opting for multiple layers of foundation or heavily contoured cheeks. We love the shimmery lids and frosty lips combo — it looks like a match made in heaven.
05. Beyond standard red lips

While a red shade is the standard bridal lip colour, many brides are opting for deeper, more intense shades like plum, gothic purple and dark browns. Such rich shades instantly elevate your makeup and lend an impressive depth to your overall look.
