In fact, our wedding schedules are looking busier than ever with invites flooding in thick and fast.

Whether you gravitate towards all-out glam or soft natural looks and bold lips – keep swiping to take cues from the leading ladies of B-town to make a head-turning statement.
Just like our fav B-town diva, the look donned by her is downright stunning. The beautiful smoked-out kohl is simply too pretty for words. You can’t go wrong with this and it just needs a single nude eyeshadow shade and kohl to ace this look.
This makeup look is straight-up art. If you’ve been considering trying reverse winged eyeliner makeup, now is the time to do it. Just apply the eyeshadow on the outer crease of your eyes and complete the eye makeup by focusing the liner on the bottom lash line instead of on the top. Coat your lips in your favourite nude lip shade to make an eye-catching statement.
Let your eyes do the talking. There’s nothing like bold smokey eyes t’s fuss-free yet fashion-forward. Your social circle will definitely notice a work of art like this, it’s perf for your BFF’s wedding.
With radiant skin and glossy hair, Aditi Rao Hydari keeps things interesting in the beauty department. We love everything about this look- from her pink lipstick to subtle shimmery eye makeup. This is one of the most sophisticated looks, keep your hair sleek for an edgy look.
It’s still all about the eyes. Nothing says iconic more than this timeless combination of nude lipstick and matching lids coupled with smoked out kohl. If you are a minimalist who loves keeping up with the latest in beauty, this gossamer look might be your favourite way to don a pink eyeshadow. It’s soft, chic and so, so dreamy.
All we’ve got to say is, Kangana, please share your skincare routine with us. We need every last detail. The actor accentuated her eyes with a subtle peach eyeshadow smoked out with a nude brown hue. If you’re exacting, just like us, match your lips with your lids for an elevated look.
Taking to Instagram, Deepika Padukone shared a photo of her above-the-neck spin on throwback glamour. Amalgamating the thick, arched rimming of kohl with a touch of smoke, clad with eyeliner and kajal on the waterline created a sultry look. She paired it with impeccably chiselled cheekbones and a defined nude lip that elevated it to extraordinary status.
Katrina’s to-die-for eye makeup teamed with a glossy lip serves as a major inspiration for all the brides-to-be and bridesmaids out there. Have an event on your social calendar that requires a less-is-more makeup look? Start practising now.
Glitter for a wedding celebration? Yes! Listen, we know glitter isn’t a new trend, but it sticks around season after season for a good reason. It’s really fuckin’ pretty. Cover your lids with a layer of glitter primer, then dab on loose eye glitter, packing it on, or keeping it sheer based on your beauty aesthetic.
If you have done the whole glamm thing for past wedding celebrations, change it up this year with a softer glam look made with monochromatic colours. The neutral eye and nude lipsticks combo very much still says glamm but like, whispers it instead of screams it.
If you need a little inspiration to amp up your beauty game, take cues from her latest look that is equal parts classic and contemporary. The makeup look proves that shine on shine is the way to go and we’re very much on board with it.
Even if you weren’t genetically #blessed with truly gorgeous skin like Disha, you can still recreate her golden glow for the next wedding you attend. This super-easy festive look is guaranteed to score a never-ending stream of compliments.
The queen of edginess wore sparkly eyeshadow that caught the light as she moved around but otherwise faded against the fresh backdrop of her complexion- best of both worlds. It’s the perf meet-in-the-middle solution for those who wish to strike a balance between dramatic and demure. Win-win situation!
Alia Bhatt is the flag-bearer of matchy-matchy makeup and we’re officially on-board. Bhatt balanced her soft, hazy pink eyeshadow with a pink lip and dewy makeup base and we can’t wait to try this compliment-inducing look.
Okay, can we just marvel for a moment at the pure SMOKINESS of these smokey eyes? Like, this is makeup sorcery at its finest! Yes to all of this for your wedding guest makeup look.
Behold- the ultimate OG festive look of red lipstick with thick, fluttery false eyelashes. We love a classic. To keep the look feeling modern, look for a red lipstick with a semi-matte finish, instead of a high-shine finish. Then, load on a pair of lengthening lashes for max impact.
Presenting you with another beauty trend of 2021: The blush contour. Wear any blush for your skin tone, just as you would contour, apply the blush along your cheeks and temples. For extra glam, apply the lip colour and shadow in the same colour family.
If you’re not quite ready to let go of fall and all its earthy tones, bring it with you into the new year with this red-toned makeup look. Trust us, all eyes will be on you.
Is this the most bright, dramatic, smoky look you could possibly wear for a wedding? NOPE! If you are not a major makeup wearer but still want to try out a look, copy this subtle shimmer eye and a neutral lip for your skin tone.
We have said it once, we’ll say it again – a bronzed look can be rocked year-round. Add a little warm shimmer to your lids, and use a shiny lip gloss for a look that’ll have your glowin’ at the wedding.
The outer corner crystal look still has a seat at our table. Apply and diffuse out a light shimmer eyeshadow, wing your liner, and – following the same technique as above – add that little bling-bling to your outer corner.
