So, brides-to-be and bridesmaids or BFFs of the brides bookmark this as your fashion Bible and take in each of these bridal makeup pictures as your Holy grail and slay them with your makeup hacks and vibrant hues.
Here, we make a case for these bridal makeup pictures and why they will help you more than any catalogue picture. You can thank us later! These real brides’ looks led to some major slayage and so can yours.
1. Golden Goddess
Doesn't she look like a dream come true? With a golden bridal lehenga and her dupatta on fleek, this bride is out to serve some looks. If you too are planning to wear a similar colour palette, then go for defined eyebrows. This is one of the celebrated bridal makeup pictures that you bookmark on the lookbook.
Use a black eyebrow pencil to seal the deal. The highlighted dark brows will be a contrast to the bright and neutral colours that you flaunt and will obviously make your eyes look even more gorgeous. Brush it up with a dark brown or black eyebrow powder and a small brush with a fine tooth to give it a natural yet fine finishing.
Use some of that shimmer and glitz to highlight your inner and outer eye before you smear eyeshadow over the lids. The deep pigment choice for eye makeup is a good one that will highlight your features for all to behold. Then use golden and copper sparkle tints and blend them in the middle for the desired look. And, throw in some fake long lashes and girl you’re good to go!
Go for a deep red or a dark maroon shade since your outfit and eye makeup are both blingy. Matte red is always the magical colour. It speaks of power and grace and upholds the bridal look that you put together, and red is anyway always an auspicious colour used for the ceremonies too. Let your lips be dark, mysterious and sultry.

We don’t know whether to call this bridal makeup picture beautiful, exquisite or unbelievably gorgeous? Who knew a multicoloured eye makeup could look so good. Well, thanks to this real bride, now we know the answer to that. What do you need to sport something as out-of-the-box as this? We’ve got you!
Use a black eyebrow pencil to firmly reshape your brows and fill them in wherever required with the same pencil or a brow brush and some brow lining powder. Define them well and dark so the colours used on your eyelids can be properly highlighted in the features.
This will make or break this entire glammed up look. Contour your eyes first thing. Highlight the inner eye using a light coloured and a little-glittered highlighter. This makes your eyes pop and appear bigger than they are. Blend a few pastel tints of your choice from the eyeshadow palette. Use of the lighter or brighter shades is recommended when you do the inner eye corner and you can use purples and blues or greens for the outer corner. This enhances the pop-up idea even more. Add a wing of that perfect liner with a streak of bold kohl and boy you’re a catch! Throw in some fake lashes and entwine your future hubby in it too!
Let your eyes be the focal point of all attention. Therefore, go for a clear lipstick with a little shimmer in it. Or you can just coat a nude shade lipstick with some gloss and you’re good to rock.

- No makeup will ever make up for a bad skin. Start with a healthy skin care regime. Begin some months prior to the date and moreover follow this for future as well. There is no harm in having a clear and glowing skin.
- Invest in a good cleanser, toner and moisturiser.
- Drink adequate amount of water as it keeps your skin hydrated and fresh.
- Include a lot of veggies and fruits in your diet. Fries may taste good but veggies will make your skin look good. What’s more important, tasty fries or healthy vibes?
Some Tips for Rosy and Supple Lips:
- Exfoliate! Yep, you heard us! Use a toothbrush to exfoliate your lips. Don’t be too harsh but put enough pressure that the blood circulation gets pumping and your dead cells come off.
- Make a lip scrub and apply it diligently twice a month. You can look the recipe up on youtube and store a few variants just in case you like variety.
- Always invest in a lip balm which has SPF. Always!
- Water! Drink up as much as you can trust us to make it your best pal!
Always Invest in Good Brands:
- Do not! We repeat don’t ever purchase fake makeup products. You wouldn’t want to damage your poor skin for good? Would you?
- Try the products before you make a purchase. Try the products on a small patch of skin to check for rashes, allergies and side effects. It’s better to put no makeup than put one at the risk of hampering the texture of your skin.
- Lastly, never use expired products. Check your makeup kit on a yearly or a bimonthly basis to check for expiration dates.
