We Want to Mimic Anushka Sharma's Engagement Look


The Virushka wedding has given all brides to be outfit goals aplenty. Anushka Sharma let the craftsmanship of her outfits take centerstage rather than her makeup and the result was a bridal look that's spawned numerous editorials and outfit spin offs.

The key to getting any engagement look right is that it should not end up looking like your wedding day. Right from the jewellery to the outfit should be chosen with care keeping in mind the occasion and what time of the day the function is taking place. Linking them all together is the makeup. Brides generally tend to make all three things loud which grabs attention in all the wrong ways. The lehengas are too heavy, the jewelry is too heavy and so is the makeup. No though Anushka Sharma’s. Of course having professional help at hand and some of the best in the industry putting it all together makes a huge difference. That’s not to say we can’t take a leaf or two out of her book!

Anushka Sharma’s engagement look is the picture of perfect balance. The nude lips and darkly kohled eyes played beautifully with her Sabyasachi ensemble. The key to enhance any heavily embellished outfit is to keep your makeup pared down and Anushka got it down to an art form at her engagement ceremony. The glossy lips also acted as a #trendalert as glossy lips soon became a rage after that. While creating the actress’s engagement look, the makeup artists ensured that not only did her makeup suit her outfit but also did not clash with the jewelry.

Sabyasachi, the design house that created both Anushka and Virat's outfits posted on their Instagram regarding her engagement look saying, 

"For her engagement, Anushka wanted to wear a Sabyasachi velvet saree. And we made it in our signature Gulkand Burgundy. It was hand-embroidered using miniature pearls and the finest quality zardosi and marori. She wore a stunning uncut diamond and pearl choker with matching studs. The entire look was complemented with kohl-rimmed eyes, red roses and our now iconic micro dot bindi.” 

Anushka Sharma's engagement night was the only time during the celebrations when Anushka sported heavy eye makeup by way of black kajal. Both her lashline and waterline were intensely lined with a black kajal and rounded off with voluminous lashes and nude glossy lips

Here's how to go about recreating Anushka Sharma's engagement look that was  stunning.
