Bridal makeup ideas to try this season 

• Minimal face makeup 

Minimal makeup or the no-makeup makeup look is in rage, and most brides are looking forward to the minimal approach these days. It looks natural yet glam and makes your skin look flawless with ease. To achieve this easy yet creative bridal makeup, all you need to do is prep your face well by using a primer and then, going straight in with the concealer for a seamless base. Make sure you use the right concealer shade and to create a brightening effect, apply a shade or two lighter. Next, apply a highlighter to the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, the bridge and tip of your nose, chin, cupid’s bow, and your brow bone. This simple yet creative bridal makeup will help you enjoy a luminous glow from within.   

• Classic red lipstick 

Fill in your eyebrows and sculpt your face well. Then, pair your smokey eye makeup with bold red lipstick to create a statement. The red lipstick is classic, and elegant and will help you stand out from the rest. Moreover, using the right shade of red can help you boost your confidence instantly. So, make sure you use lipstick that flatters your skin tone and mood. 

• Cut crease eyes 

Add drama to your bridal eye makeup by creating the cut crease eyeshadow look. Use an orange eyeshadow on the crease of your eyes and smudge it well. Next, create a cut crease with a natural coverage concealer and set it using shimmery eyeshadow. Follow this step by creating a winged eyeliner look and complete your unique bridal makeup with kajal. Last but not the least, finish this look with waterproof mascara to prevent clumps, smears, or flakes throughout the event. 

• Monochrome makeup 

One universally flattering bridal makeup idea is a monochrome makeover and you can simply create magic by playing around with a lot of different shades. Do your base makeup as usual and then add a pop of pink blush on your cheeks. Further, apply pink eyeshadow across your eyelids and finish off your creative bridal makeup by wearing pink lipstick

• Traditional bridal makeup 

Rule the night by going for the traditional Indian bridal makeup look. Keep your eye makeup simple and almost bare. Use nude eyeshadow shades and apply a thick line of your favourite eyeliner right above your eyelashes. Then, coat your eyelashes with volumizing mascara. Next, give your skin a naturally flushed look by using a peach blush. Lastly, enhance the natural colour of your lips by using nude or brown lip crayon

• Coloured eyeliner 

Colourful eyeliner is one of the biggest makeup trends that is grabbing attention these days and is easily one of the best ways to take your wedding makeup look up a notch. Once your base makeup is done, pick a coloured eyeliner shade of your choice and apply it above your lashes. You can also create a customised eyeliner shade by using eyeshadow. Further, you can use fuchsia lipstick if you wish to play around with contrasting colours to complete your creative bridal makeup look.
