When somebody says that they want to be a Manish Malhotra bride, I have to ask - Manish Malhotra outfit or Manish Malhotra makeup? As I witness more and more of my friends’ weddings, the more I realize that a bride’s anxiety about how she looks doesn’t end with a designer lehenga. From the intensity of the makeup to the hairdo that holds throughout 8 hours of the reception, a bridal look can make or break your whole wedding’s vibe. While some brides are happy with a simple wedding glow, a few go to extreme lengths to get that perfect wedding makeup look. Do you have a bridal look favourited for future use? If not, we have a couple of options, you can’t help but bookmark.

How to achieve this makeup look: To get the seamlessly highlighted look, prep your base with an illuminating primer, and a dewy finish foundation. Then add light strokes of highlighter on the high points of your face - like your cheekbones, eyebrow bones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid’s bow. Finish the look with a subtler tone of lipstick.

We get it - weddings are chaotic, time-consuming, and filled with intense plan execution. However, being a bride should be entirely opposite and nothing less of a dream. So if you have a bridal makeup look bookmarked already, communicate with your makeup artist to get the exact version of your dulhan makeup idea. If you don’t, fret not, because your makeup artists can help you with that. To decide on the best bridal look for you, ask your makeup artist to recommend makeup looks that will go with your outfit and the vibe of the wedding.
Keep in mind the location of the wedding, the weather conditions, and your wedding rituals while figuring this out. After all, your makeup needs to be impeccable through all of that! Once your makeup artist knows how you want your bridal look to turn out, you’re golden!
Your bridal makeup look should reflect your personality the most. The best bridal makeup is something that matches your outfit, makes you feel like yourself, and gives you radiating confidence. Your wedding pictures will be flipped through for years to come and you would not want to look at yourself and think about how much you hated your makeup look, do you?
Depending on the level of expertise you decide to go with, a wedding bridal look can range from as low as Rs.15,000 to Rs.55,000. Celebrity makeup artists can charge higher rates as well.
A bridal makeup kit must have a pore minimizing primer for perfect pictures, a long-wear foundation that doesn’t melt in the heat of lighting equipment, matte lipstick that doesn’t crease or stain while eating all the mithais, and a strong makeup setting spray to hold all of that, and more in.
