From subtle highlights to bold statements, across skin tones and preferences, these are the best Indian bridal makeup looks.
The Indian bride is a global phenomenon. Vivid, colorful, a testament to her take on tradition – her bridal demeanor is usually dictated as much by her clothes and jewelry as by the makeup she wears.
But the Indian bride isn’t one kind of bride. Her looks and style are part of a kaleidoscope that radiates myriad cultures – each distinct from the other, all incredibly vibrant and alluring.
Makeup artist Sejal Sachnukal on Makeovers By Sejal shows us just three distinct Indian bridal looks crafted using some of her favorite beauty products by Lakme Absolute.
Bold and Beautiful
Bride Meghavi represents the Gujarati bridal aesthetic. Her achromatic ensemble was balanced with an intrepid approach to her makeup. Inky shades from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette in Royal Persia were used to create a dark, smokey tint. The Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara gave dramatic volume to her lashes.
The Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution in Dynamite Berry elevated the bold appeal of the look, giving the bride’s face a striking finish.
Sejal’s look for bride Yesha was out of the Sindhi bride’s lookbook – a minimal visage with striking eye make up.
The Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow in French Rose brought attention to the bride’s eyes in soft coral shades with a fresh, dewy appeal. The Lakmé Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner allowed Sejal to line the bride’s eyes, giving them a clean, defined shape. The Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara added volume to the bride’s lashes and a bridal blush was rendered with the Lakmé Absolute Face Styling Blush Duos in Peach.
A swipe of the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution in Vintage Rust was the perfect finishing touch to the bride’s makeover.
Minimal yet Magnificent
Bride Rachana’s Marwadi bridal makeover was all about subdued makeup that elegantly enhanced the bride’s features with a powerful, bold lip.
After prepping the bride’s face using the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Prime, a matte effect was brought about using The Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet & Dry Compact. Then, her eyes were embellished with shimmering shades from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Nude Beach. Sejal then lined the bride’s eyes using the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate In Black. A fresh, peachy tint was added to the bride’s cheeks with the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Cheek Contour In Peach Princess. Finally, her lips were inked using the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color In Envious Red.
