For all the newly-engaged girls, the brides-to-be, or the aspiring makeup artists, bridal season is probably the most exciting time of the year! If we aren’t getting married ourselves, we’ve got oh-so-many weddings to attend and sometimes, we run out of ideas when it comes to our clothes and makeup. Most of us don’t miss all the desi outfit inspiration, like the cut-out shararas or lehengas with intricate detailing; but when it comes to makeup, we stick to the plain old kajal and red lip, or worse, leave it entirely up to the makeup artist! That is exactly why I’m counting down 11 timeless beauty looks from a few of our favorite movies. Here goes…
The full bindi arrangement on the forehead might have been out for a while, but it’s coming back in a big way! Madhuri Dixit‘s brows, lashes, and lips were on point even in the ’90s.
Kalki Koechlin looks so real, yet adorable in this bridal scene from YJHD!
Take inspiration from this epic film and let your jewellery do all the talking. You can always opt for a no makeup look.
Alia Bhatt looks young and fresh with this smokey eye and the nude-pink lips!
If you want to carry off a boldly defined eye, go for a subtle look with the rest of your makeup.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s bridal look in Devdas is one of my personal favorites. I love loading up on winged eyeliner and fake lashes!
Yes, it’s Aishwarya again, because she’s just that beautiful as a bride. Once again, it’s lashes and liner, paired with a subtle red lip and brown eyeshadow.
Nargis Fakhri does justice to the part of Kashmiri bride with pink cheeks and lips.
Katrina Kaif‘s bridal look in Namastey London is super feminine. I love the glossy lip!
If you’re confused about what to do, you can always fall back on the classic kohl, bright lips, and beautiful skin kind of look.
I love how Kareena Kapoor hasn’t loaded up on foundation for this look. Let your skin breathe and be yourself!
Which of these brides are you taking inspiration from? Do tell us. And all the brides-to-be, we would love to see your bridal makeup pictures!
