Tips and Tricks on How to Shimmer Up Your Bridal Makeup and More
What is an Indian wedding without some bling and glitter? While you bling up your wedding décor with crystals, gorgeous chandeliers and more – why not add some bling to your pretty self too? The use of shimmer and all things bling at your wedding, in the right proportion is the key. Whether it’s your footwear, makeup or even your bridal lehenga – the pivotal rule here is the correct amount. If there’s too much glitz you’ll end up looking like a disco ball and if there’s too little, we suggest you keep adding up till you reach the point of that perfect shimmer ratio. Through these gorgeous pictures, in bridal wear, makeup and footwear too, we show you how to amp up your glitter game in the easiest of ways.
Bridal Wear Bling
Pastels and shimmer pair up the best. While we love our classic combination of red and gold, especially in Indian bridal wear, but pastels seem to be taking the wedding wear market by storm. Hues of peach, pale blue, pink and mauve combined with a scatter of sequins or gorgeous gota work or even a bold glitter border can level up your bridal wear like never before. Opt for lighter shades with this bold shimmer trend to make a statement!

No matter how flares and floor sweeping that lehenga or pristine white wedding gown is, bridal shoes are just as important as any other element of the bridal ensemble. Bridal footwear is where you can pull off anything from mild shimmer to bold crystals, or even a big blingy heel. Don’t be afraid to let your glitter goals loose when trying to find that perfect pair.

If you’re opting to glam up your bridal lehenga, saree or wedding gown with your jewellery, you’re going down the perfect path! Keeping your outfit classy, let your jewellery and accessories do all the talking. Diamond bracelets, ruby earrings and shimmer clutches are perfect accessories to complement your grand wedding outfit. A tone of rose gold and emerald green in earrings, chic diamond bracelets and glam envelope clutches is definitely the way you should go!

Shimmer Eyes & Nails
Another way to add sparkle to your big day is through your bridal makeup and nail art. Go for bold glitter eyes and nude, pink tones on the lips – keeping full focus on those kohl lined, well defined gorgeous Indian eyes. Opt for a full coverage in glitter or even a smoky shimmer effect, either one is sure to make heads turn like never before. For your nails, sparkle up only your ring finger to stand out or go for an ombre glitter effect.
