Trends for Indian Bridal Make-up 2015
Those eyes kill me quietly. As your face, your devilish lips
Take my breath away; like it was sucked out of my soul.
It leaves me completely breathless,utterly speechless.
A ravishing, radiant bride is the
focal point of any wedding. As mostly the Indian bridal attires are in bold
colours with lot of gold and glitter, the Indian bridal make-up has to be at
par, so that more than her dress, it is she who takes everyone’s breath away.
Let’s cover the trends of Indian
bridal make-up for each specific feature that is highlighted:
This season the hair can be tied
up using any hairstyle with accents of flowers or a jewel hair accessory. The
South Indian bride displays an amazing braid hairdo with flowers and ornaments.
For a modern look the bride can let the hair down with soft curls. Hair extensions
and a hint of colour in hair with an emphatic mangtikka are also popular.
The flawless skin:
The base foundation for the face,
which is like creating canvas for art, has to be perfect. It has to look
flawless and natural at the same time. It is important to choose the tone as
per your complexion, sometimes a shade darker does more justice than ending up
like ghost bride. Brides are going in for airbrush foundations that are applied
through misty spray and they let your skin breathe. One trend in Indian bridal
make-up is using a bronzer instead of blush as it gives definition and contour
on the face with a more natural look and this in turn results in amazing
wedding day pictures!
The eyes say it all:
Smokey eyes are big now as they
go well with this season’s more bejeweled and opulent classic wedding attires. This
year rust and copper brown shadows are favourites, as is the addition of
shimmer to the eyes. There is also a trend of adding a hint of the attire
colour to the eyes like blues, teals, greens,etc. whatever the bride is
wearing. This season for the Indian bridal make-up, the focus is on the eyes.
The younger brides prefer a minimalistic look with no huge fake eye lashes. Kajals will always be popular with Indian
brides and full eyebrows are also very in for the Indian bridal make-up.
Lips don’t lie:
Indian bridal make-up this season
is all for natural berry stained lips or underplayed nude lips to match the
brides’s smokey highlighted eyes. Instead of the sharp edge of the lip liners,
the stains give a more natural look. Orange-browns and plums also go well with
Indian complexion and most of the conventional Indian bridal-wear colours.
Before choosing the lip colour the bride should consider her dress colour and
skin tone too. The brides can go for bolder colours like reds or fuchsias with
lightly done eyes.
Brides are also going in for
permanent make-up these days. Permanent make-up helps you have well done
eyebrows, eyeliners, lip colours and you can also add a beauty spot that will
stay for a long time.
When we talk of an Indian bride
we cannot ignore culture and tradition. So apart from the general elements of Indian
bridal make-up, the Indian bride has some unique additions. The Bengali bride
goes for a big red bindi and red and white motifs on her forehead accentuating
the eyes. The red bindi is a common element for most of the Indian brides
(except the Catholic or Islamic bride). The Maharashtrian bride sports a crescent
moon shaped bindi.
The Bengali bride
The wedding pictures of Bollywood
celebrities like Aishwarya Rai and Kareena Kapoor, shows them with lots of
jewellery or regal dresses with subtle make-up, so I guess that sums up the
make-up trend. You can go heavy on your attire but ‘au naturale’ is the Indian bridal
make-up mantra for 2015.
