In terms of make-up, brides today aren't afraid of taking a novel approach. Multiple trials or sundry references online do not wear them out, in their pursuit of looks that turn heads on their D-day.
According to celebrity make-up artist and stylist Aishwarya Karayil, a bride's make-up must feel like her second skin, enhancing her beauty without altering her natural appearance. In a candid conversation with Onmanorama, she reveals five of her favourite bridal looks that she has worked on.
» Natural look
This bride adorns an everyday look without much highlight in her eyes. "I don't use kajal or eyeliner for her eyes, and this adds life to her look. The make-up has a matte finish," says Aishwarya.
» An upbeat radiance
This engagement make-up gives a dewy appearance with more focus on the eyes. The look is brilliantly pulled off with bushy brows, a glossy lip colour, and brown lip liner.
» Traditional with a twist
The bride's facial features are given importance in this look. The shimmering eye make-up and dark red lips blend with her outfit. "Her natural skin tone has been maintained with minimal foundation or blush," said Aishwarya.
» Simple yet classy
This is a traditional bridal appearance that uses the right amount of cosmetics. The bride has an effortless yet elegant look with a matte base, red lips, and bhindi.
» Indo-western look
Make-up that gives the trending 'glass skin' look has been used on this bride, along with a lighter-coloured eye lens, neat eyeliner, and brown lip colour.
