It’s been more than a week but we still can’t seem to get over the big #MonkeyWedding. Hate her or love her, there is just no denying that Bipasha looked every bit the radiant bride. That glow and huge smile on her face is probably why we can’t stop looking at the shaadi pics. From her outfits to her hair and makeup, all we can say is she looked flawless. If you too are mega-inspired by Bips in all her bridal glory, then you can get her look too on your big day. We break down Bipasha’s wedding beauty look to help you wow just like the Bollywood stunner.
It was love at first sight in her gorgeous Anushree Reddy ensemble that gave us major princess vibes. Blush pink was the star of the look from the outfit to the makeup to the flowers. Cascading waves and that beautiful floral tiara has given every bride-to-be some major goals for her mehendi look.
Step 1: A good base is essential for a flawless complexion. Our top foundation picks would be Maybelline Fit Me, Mac Studio Fix Foundation and Makeup Forever HD foundation for smooth, even skin. Apply with a damp sponge for a super-natural finish.
Step 2: A little bit of baby pink on the apples of the cheeks, sweeping towards the temples will give you that rosy flush like Bipasha’s. We love Bobbi Brown Blush in bright pale pink. Also, sweep on a bit of highlighter along the cheekbones and brow bones for that gorgeous glow.

Step 3: Sweep on plenty of gold eyeshadow up to your crease and blend well. Blend in a dash of orange towards the outer corner to help your eyes pop. Using a liquid liner, line your eyes carefully and extend into tiny flicks. Finish off with generous coats of mascara to really open up your peepers.
Step 4: A pretty shade of baby pink on your pout is enough to finish off the look that is so pretty yet subtle. Make sure your lips aren’t too glossy. Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Divine is the perfect shade.
The Wedding and Reception
She went traditional in a striking red and gold Sabyasachi lehenga for the pheras. A big red bindi, dramatic wings, luminous skin and hair in a high bun adorned with gajra ensured that she was the most beautiful bride around.
Step 1: This look is all about that glow so the trick is to mix a bit of luminizing cream with your foundation to make your skin look healthy and lit from within. MAC’s Strobe Cream is perfect for this.
Step 2: We can’t help but notice how defined her brows are and how that makes such a huge difference to her striking look. Use a bit of brown eyeshadow or Maybelline’s Brow Duo Shaper to fill in and define your brows. Trust us, it’s the key to taking a look that is good to great!
Step 3: Now use a creamy highlighter on the highest points of your face to really get your glow on! Benefit’s High Beam is perfect for this.

Step 4: Sweep on loads of rose-gold eyeshadow on your lids for a bit of sparkle that complimented the happy twinkle in her eye so well. Dramatic, look-at-me wings will ensure he can’t take his eyes off you and add loads of mascara for the finishing touches.
Step 5: Fire engine red on your lips will add a classy but sexy touch to your wedding look.
Step 6: Spritz on some setting spray. You don’t want your gorgeous flicks or carefully applied foundation to run while sitting in front of the fire, obviously. Colorbar Stay The Day Finishing Mist is great.
For the reception, Bips changed into a shimmery, gold outfit by the same designer for the reception. She let her hair down and flaunted her sindoor. That happy glow, big smile and the loved up way she kept looking at her new hubby was enough to touch all our hearts.
