On the wedding day while the bride is at her stunning best, her entourage, friends and sisters are equally the centre of attraction. As a sister or friend of the bride, you need to choose a look that’s not too over the top while not being drab at the same time. Getting the balance right is important here. We understand that you need to spend on getting the outfit, makeup, and hair so you have them perfect.
To help you out of this sticky situation, here are looks that work perfectly well for the bridesmaids and bride’s entourage.
Wedding Hair Inspiration: Braid bun
This one is a hassle-free yet gorgeous look that’s become trendy as temperatures rise during the spring season in India. While there are many ways to flaunt a braided one, if it’s your first time, stick to the simple braided wedding hairstyles. The braided bun is a perfect mix of an elegant and messy hairdo that works well with all traditional Indian outfits.
Wedding Hair Inspiration: Romantic waves
For those wanting to leave their hassles free, go for a hairstyle that ties a hint of drama. Teasing and causing romantic waves to part the hair gives a casual touch to your demeanor. Moreover, during a wedding, the teased look will help you add flowers or embellishments to match the traditional outfit. Bollywood actors like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra swear by this look!
Wedding Makeup Tip: Focus on one
A great way to not go over the top is by focusing on just one character of your face. Master this trick because it’s an all-season winner. To get it right, pick a feature that’s your strength – your lips or your eyes. Do it up in the most dramatic way while leaving the other one with minimalistic makeup. This works wonders for the bridesmaid as it draws attention but also balances the act.
For example, if lips are your strong feature, paint them in a bold color and add shimmer if you must. However, keep your eyes bare, playing them down with a nude eyeshadow and just a hint of kajal. If you focus on your eyes, do them up with a grand eyeshadow, winged liners, and mascara. Kohl them boldly, but stick to a nude or pastel lip color.
Wedding Makeup Tip: Pastels & Nudes
As a part of the bride’s wedding entourage, if your dress is a delicate one, it is best to stick to a natural look. More so because we are stepping into the season of summer weddings where loud wedding makeup can easily get botched up by sweat. So, it’s best to keep it natural this season. Stick to gloss, nude, and pastel shades. Add a hint of shimmer to your cheek contours for the effect, but keep the color minimal.
