Do brides always need that metallic eyeshadow, contoured cheekbones, and pink lips to add sparkle and look glamorous? Smudge a thick line of black eyeliner (we love the Kohl Pencil by Loreal) along your upper lash line for added drama and definition. What’s more? Throw in some shades of subtle grey eyeshadow and false eyelashes to carry off that mesmerising look. How about using a brown-based nude shade that will add just a hint of colour to your skin? You could pull off this bold look for your reception function and stun your guests.
Extra Dose of Pink Blush

No, we are not talking about pink lips, pink eye shadow and pink blush. Keep the look minimal with fluttery lashes and a retro-inspired updo or windswept hair. A touch of coral blush and a bright, fall-in-love-with-me hot pink colour on the lips makes for an eternally beautiful wedding makeup look. This could be a great pick for a cocktail party and will give you sophisticated glamour. What's more dazzling than a bold, glossy, pink lip?
A Touch of Shimmer

If you're that subtle makeup bride who feels uneasy even at the slightest mention of bold red or orange lips, then this one’s for you. This is not really the full-on glam makeup look, but still retains a little sparkle and oomph – making it perfect for a mehndi or engagement ceremony. Dab a little shimmery shadow at the middle of your eyelid, with a matte shadow in the crease for added definition. You could use some light contouring and rosy lips to balance the eyes makeup.

We love all things electric – yes, as much as we love this track by BORNS. A pop of electric blue eyeliner makes a bold choice for the free-spirited bride. Yeah, go ahead. Experiment with purples, greens and yellows. The beauty of this look lies in the fact that you can club it with bold berry lips or nude lips with equal ease. It adds that much-needed dose of glamour to your eyes and ensures ‘those eyes’ don’t go unnoticed. Flaunt this look for a flashy sangeet ceremony and you are sure to steal all the attention.
