The winter bridal season is looking up for brides-to-be. With eased restrictions and a rejuvenated enthusiasm in wedding planners to put together bigger events, the glam brief is also set to take off. Yes, you heard that right–no more minimal matte lippies or toned-down make-up looks to suit protective face masks – fresh bridal beauty trends are embracing OTT and we’re on board with that. Here’s what trending in bridal beauty this season.
Adding a pop of bright colour to bridal makeup can be risky business. But that does not mean you have to avoid vibrant pigments completely. Opt for a shimmering lavender to lightly flush your lids with colour; it will look lovely with a plum lippie!

The thought of wearing big bindis and having to centre it perfectly with carefully done makeup can put anyone on edge. Opt for dainty bindis that perfectly blend with the rest of the details in your glam brief. We love the idea of a subtle orange bindi paired with peachy makeup, it's absolutely lovely!

Elevate your eye makeup with coloured lenses; the popular trend is to match them to green, brown and blue ensembles. If the sudden change in eye colour feels too overwhelming, you can plop on thick faux lashes to balance out the colour.

A smokey eye will always be in-vogue but when it comes to bridal make-up, they have to be edited to suit the occasion. The golden smokey eye is one of the popular trends this season, followed by jewel tones in case you are looking for options.

Kohl-rimmed eyes were all the rage on the runways and it seems bridal MUAs are loving it too! Opt for an extreme kajal liner to pair with your matte make-up look; make sure to go for bold brows to match the intensity of the kohl.

The classic bold red lip is back and how! While nude matte lippies were the go-to tint for pandemic weddings, the post-quarantine bride-to-be does not have to settle for that. Pair a plump red lip with your perfectly contoured makeup look for an incredibly glam outcome.

Cat eyes and winged liners may not always fit a bridal brief but they certainly are quite popular with millennial brides. Don't be afraid to try a sharp eye makeup look; a snatched fox-eye will look absolutely stunning with a gorgeous lehenga.

It can be tricky to conceptualise a makeup look around silver lehengas. A good option is to stick to the colour scheme and add silver elements to your make-up as well. A glitzy silver eye look needs balance though and that's where blushed cheeks and a glossy pink mouth will come in!

When Patralekhaa paired one of her many stunning bridal ensembles with rainbow glitter, we were stunned. It is so fresh, youthful and fun! Her glitter play is a reminder that blushing bride or not, you can always be experimental with make-up!

Draped blushes aren't just for fashion runways, they can go well with your bridal look as well! Instead of the striking reds, go for warm pinks to drape your cheekbones and add depth to your contouring. The best part about this is that looks flattering on all complexions.
