We love it when old fashion makes a come-back! And such is the case of this look, or in fact some of the looks we talk about in this blog. Vintage Bollywood Elegance will immediately take you back to the time where Hindi movie stars like Rekha and Jaya used to flaunt their beauty. A simple, sophisticated look where it usually started with a bindi, followed with wide-bold-dark-eyes, and clean or voluminous low hair bun. Sabyasachi’s bridal collection in recent years has also been musing this old vintage simplistic looks on their otherwise, heavily crafted bridal wears. Their styling & makeover make their designs look more iconic & standout and we are just loving it!
This makeover includes low-key minimal (sometimes voluminous) bun, traditional heavy jewellery or minimal jewellery as accessories, dark dramatic eyes, and luscious pouty lips. These are not very heavy on contouring it seems. To make this look more Bridal looking embrace “Chokers” as your bridal jewellery encrusted with bridal gems like Ruby and Emeralds, and matching earrings to go with it. Chokers will help in adding that Bridal touch while accentuating your neck & lovely makeup. If you want to add a touch of boldness in your look like the first picture, you could also try making similar deep neck-lining blouses for your saree or lehenga from the help of your local designer.
Since we are also talking of uniqueness here, this look is something of a fresh new take on a bridal makeover for Nepalese brides. It is a really minimalistic, simple flowy look which you can opt for your bridal day. It looks a bit like the old Hollywood vintage hair & makeup. Muted lips with shades of nude or a hint of red or maroon, bold winged-eye makeup, minimal jewelry and a wavy looking bun to go can add youthful charm on your face. Big hairstyles usually give very dramatic presence on a majority of brides, and it's not a look that everyone can carry well.
Tell me if pastels & pinks are your thing and you love soft wavy let down hair on your big day. We for sure think it is a very sweet idea for brides to incorporate this look on any of their functions. This look is charming and indeed a breath of fresh air when it comes to watching the same kind of bridal stylings over and over again. These looks give a more natural appearance & more elegance to those bubbly brides who are full of life!
Let your hair down by gracing off that exotic bindi, or maang-tika as they call it! Or, opt for loose curls or loose hair bun. Minimal but glowy, dewy makeup puts this look together.
Like the name suggests → a sun-kissed look is a very minimal makeup with mostly your bronzer & illuminator (and with a very little blush!). This makeup is subtle but also makes your features stand out and has been adopted by many foreign stars over the years. Make your eyelids pop with shimmery bronzed/ gold shadows with heaps or less amount of kohl, add illuminator to get your features highlighted and just a good amount of warm bronzer. Finally, finish the look with a lipstick of your choice. The look adds so much warmth and a very glowy looking skin even on a bride. It will give you a balanced, polished look even while your whole attire is heavy & sparkly with a ton of jewelry. Big curls or poof-ed hairstyles would also compliment this makeup.
One more tip: Add that extra amount of glow on your look by applying body makeup that shimmers well on your neck and areas that are being exposed. As the shade brown suits almost all skin tones it is something new and needs more real brides to rock this look. A few brides who’ve done their makeover at Arden The Beauty Point have been opting this makeup look and it does look very natural. We feel that anybody can achieve this look if you can describe it well to your makeup artist, or even better when you DIY it! :)
