From chiseled cheeks to heavy smoky eyes and a ravishing lip color, everything has developed tremendously! Have a look at some of the most recent trends in Indian Wedding Makeup!

Right from using the HD products to using professional services like airbrushed makeup, it is all about how to look very natural in spite of the multiple layers of makeup beneath! HD makeup tends to give that real dimensional look which looks evident in the pictures as well and compliment out heavy outfit and sparkling jewellery!

Getting a Dewy Look-

False Eye lashes-


These instantly glam up the bridal look to several notches up and make the eyes look flattering according to the whole getup!

Glitter eyes-


Some brides are even quite enthusiastic to have a glitter based eye makeup with a less pigmented lip color to make their overall makeup subtle yet enticing!

Single Bindi Look-
