The Royal Princess
Dressed in traditional red garb, just one look at this stunner of a bride was enough to make us fall in love with her! The magnificent maang teeka and the resplendent necklace brings the whole look together and takes us back to Rajput times! When it comes to bridal makeup for dusky skin tone, don’t be afraid to go bold! This makeup with a bold red lip nicely complements the crimson lehenga and lets her natural beauty shine through. We love how royal she looks – the heavy work lehenga and the slightly subdued red adds its own flair!
This flower-adorned queen has our heart. Dressed in a pale pink lehenga, she chose to complement it with red bangles and some really elegant jewellery. She brings the whole look together with nude makeup without looking overdone. We love the pink lehenga and how she’s chosen to be understated with her look – making her true beauty shine through!
Dreamy Lilac Queen
This dusky bridal makeup look is stunning. Soft, glowy and has just the right amount of glam! She’s kept her jewellery sophisticated, which goes perfectly with her sequined dress. The heavy lashes and winged liner, coupled with a nude lip – so subtle, yet so well done! The nath especially, adds a touch of glamour and sophistication that steals the show! And don’t forget her layered necklace, which ties the whole look together.
Mellow Yellow Starlet
The sparkly eyeshadow, beautiful lashes, or the flawless blush – we can’t pick what we love most! Dressed in pink and yellow, this bride sure knows how to make a statement! She’s kept her lehenga subtle and went for full drama with her gorgeous necklace, maang teeka and a stunning nose ring. We love the fact that she’s chosen to complement the lehenga with pink bangles and kept the rest of her look golden to perfectly complement the overall dusky bridal makeup look. We likey!
Oh, how we love that this dusky beauty decided to go bold! Beautiful maroon and gold lehenga perfectly adorned with bright gold ornaments. The sweetheart neckline and the perfectly pleated saree look fabulous – afterall, the devil is in the details! She decided to go with a topaz smokey eye, bold burgundy lipstick and some oh-la-la luscious lashes. And don’t forget the gajra!
The Regal Diva
Who said you can’t pair dark sultry makeup with light outfits? This superstar bride proves it! Her beautiful purple saree is offset by subdued gold jewellery, making her stand out from the crowd. We love the understated mehendi, adorned by multiple rings. She’s decided to go easy on her lips with a pretty nude and play up the drama with a smokey eye, bold brows and dense lashes!
