We absolutely and totally love how that pinkish eyeshadow brings out her eyes. And that hint of dark smudged eye-liner matching her emerald set is pure genius. What a way to add a little something to a monotonous outfit.

This subtle and light no makeup look makes the bride look effortlessly beautiful. And isn’t that the best kind of beautiful? In our opinion, an all-red bridal lehenga deserves this classy nude makeup!

A beautiful glittery smokey eye? Yes, please! The way her makeup compliments her outfit, the way that bronze highlighters accentuate her cheekbones and that rusty lipstick; we can’t be more in love with this look!

With that bold and beautiful yellow outfit, we’d be shocked if this bride would have chosen a look that was any different. The way this nude makeup brings out her features and adds to her grace and beauty, it’s nothing short of perfection!

Makeup that looks this perfect? Where do we sign up? We love that the makeup artist chose that dark hued eye shadow and balanced it out with a softer nude look. The perfect combination of nude and dark! If this look won’t make heads turn, then nothing will!

We cannot get over how natural Sonam looks here! She actually looks like she woke up like this. This nude look is giving us a no-makeup feel. And if you ask us, the best kind of no-makeup look is when we have to squint to see the makeup!

Wow. We’re blown away. We never thought eyes could look this beautiful, and we still can’t get over it. The simplicity of the overall look combined with that pop of colour is so bold, so different and so beautiful.

If looks could kill, this is the winning look. She looks so elegant and just totally graceful. The way that lipstick shade matches her choker, the light pretty colours on her eyes and just that hint of bronzer on her face, it is just beautiful. Kudos to the blending skills!

This is what we like to call a subtle darker look. Notice how her face looks nude, almost like there is no makeup. And then your eyes move up to her eyes, and pow, there’s this beautiful shimmery eye shadow that just brings this whole look together. Absolutely gorgeous!

Can we just say that this bride looks like she actually has no makeup on. Yet, each and every feature of hers is so noticeable. Those gorgeous eyes that draw your attention, those subtle lips with just a hint of colour and those beautiful rosy cheeks. We love this look, just love it!
