It’s always easier to relate to real brides rather than Bollywood brides and celebrities, right? Yup, we get it! In fact, there’s nothing like being able to go through gorgeous wedding pictures and taking an idea or two from them. And so, coming straight from our real bride files are all the stunning makeup looks, and trust us girls, these are just beyond words! From subtle to glamorous and traditional… there’s a whole lot of bridal makeup inspiration in here.
1. Red and gold
Image: Morvi ImagesIt’s hard to just look away from this image. And we’re so not able to decide whether it’s the gorgeous gold eyes or the bold red lips that we love more. Lots of metallic gold glitter, eyeliner and tonnes of mascara make the eyes completely stand out. The artist was not afraid to go bold on the lips as well and gave the bride a pop red colour. A tiny red bindi completes the traditional yet glamorous bridal look.
2. Sweet and subtle

3. Smokey eyes!

4. Pretty pinks

With a hint of blush on the cheeks and candy pink lipstick, this one’s a look to steal. And you can totally take this look from day to night without worrying about a thing!
5. The winged effect!

We love the soft smokey effect, the heavy mascara and the extended eyeliner that imparts a classic vintage glam look. Giving reds a rest, this bride’s bright orange lip colour is definitely on our lust list.
6. The bold lips

7. Add some colour
Image: Morvi ImagesSuch a fun look for that mehendi function! A golden brown eyeshadow with a striking green eyeliner is the perfect way to add some colour to your look. Since green itself is a bold colour for the eyes, the lips are a beautiful shade of nude pink. The look blends perfectly well with the bride’s colourful outfit too!
8. A colour story
Image: Sonder FramesWho would’ve thought that pink and red could look this stunning together! That shimmering pink eyeshadow that fades into grey at the edges, looks a class apart. What’s even more interesting is the blood red lipstick and the bindi. The eyebrows too are well defined for that dramatic effect.
9. All that glitters IS gold!

10. Summer love!

Even the eye makeup looks so fun with a matte yellow eyeshadow and black eyeliner to go with it. A touch of blush on the cheeks and you have an amazing look to inspire your mehendi makeup!Featured Image: Morvi Images
