1. The Sunshine Bride
This subdued yet so immaculately defined refreshing look of this bride simply swept us off our feet. Talking about the thought process that went behind creating this look, Sakshi says:
“A dewy makeup look works best for the morning brides, so it came as a natural choice for Aakriti (the bride). However, at the same time, I needed to use at least one loud element so as to create a striking combination with the white, dull gold and green in her bridal outfit. So, I zeroed in on subtly smokey eyes with a hint of soft gold and short crisp winged eyeliner. Similarly, her overall face too was done with the muted hues. Finally, red lips and a red bindi balanced out the entire look with absolute perfection and all I had at the end was a happy bride.”
2. Bold & Boozy
Almost all of us have seen and admired blogger Shreya Kalra’s wedding look. Well, that sensuous stunner was created by none other than Sakshi Malik. Spilling the beans on this look, Sakshi says:
“Shreya is one bold bride who did not want to go with anything that has been done to death already. Right from the big things like her outfit to the minute details like the way she draped her dupatta, everything was quite ‘hatke’ and she wanted the same in her makeup and hair too. Taking hints from the colour of her blouse, I went ahead with champagne smokey eyes and created winged eyeliner to add a hint of mysterious drama to her look. Not to miss, the fake eyelashes! Stealing the hue from her lehenga, I gave her red and berry lips. Lastly, those big waves in her hair gave me my boldest bride ever.”
3. Delightfully Dark
The colour of this bride’s lehenga is a timeless classic and it’s an absolute delight to watch such a perfect harmony between her makeup and her outfit. Sakshi reveals the details about this look:
“When Devyani (the bride) showed me the colour of her outfit, it was love at first sight for me too. I instantly knew what I wanted to do and fortunately, even Devyani approved of my ideas. So, I gave her dark eyes in matte brown and also dark maroon lips.”
4. The Dusky Indian Beauty
The bride’s glowing brown complexion is something that is making us go green with envy already, and Sakshi has accentuated it further by adding the tones of gold and brown to her eyes. Here’s what Sakshi has to say about this look:
“Ria’s outfit had an unconventional colour combination which allowed me to play with different hues for her face as well. For her eyes, I picked gold and brown as I knew these two shades will merge well with her skin and will enhance her features further. Finding the right lip colour was a challenge because her dupatta was in pale peach colour, but the lips in this shade wouldn’t have gone well with her royal blue lehenga. So, I zeroed in on the peachy shade for her lips, rouge pink.”
5. Ravishing Red
Red is one colour that is synonymous to Indian weddings and there are quite high chances that you too would have imagined yourself dressed in a beautiful red lehenga at least for once in your life. Well, if red lehenga is what you are actually planning to wear on your D-day, this diva with her flawless makeup is here to inspire you. Sakshi talks in details about this look:
“It’s always a delight to see a bride in red and after having a look at Sonu’s (the bride) healthy and naturally glowing skin, finding the perfect look for her was no brainer. All she needed for her D-day was soft smokey eyes with a hint of shimmer and a long thick winged eyeliner. She needed no kajal and no sheen on her face either. So, I opted for dewy skin and gave the final touch red lips and a red bindi.”
Phew! We bet no one ever told you before about the intense thought process as well as the research that goes behind creating a perfect bridal look. Now that Sakshi Malik has enlightened you enough, don’t forget to tell us yours once you are done deciding it.
