Tradition Meets Trend: Modern Bridal Makeup Looks For Red Lehenga

From fiery shades to deep tones, red bridal lehengas are coveted in the world of Indian bridal fashion. The colour red has roots in Indian culture and is considered auspicious. The vibrant shades of red just pop on all skin tones and look stunning with the gold and jewels of traditional Indian jewellery. However, just because your lehenga ensemble is in a traditional colour doesn’t mean you can’t add a contemporary touch to your makeup look.

Many brides are embracing modern trends and makeup looks seen on celebs for their big day. These looks pair perfectly with red lehengas and help you look like a dream. But before we begin with the fun eyeshadow looks and lipstick shades, it is important to apply the right products to get a flawless base for your makeup look. Here are some tips to consider:

Ace The Base

Getting the flawless base is all about three essential steps – Prep Cover Set. Following these steps will give you the best chance of surviving a full day of wedding festivities.

  1. Prep: Nourish the skin with creams and primers to ensure your makeup survives long wear. We recommend the bestselling Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Primer.
  2. Cover: Cover up blemishes or pigmentation with a concealer, foundation, or colour correctors for an even-toned complexion. This set from Nykaa has all the essentials you need.
  3. Set: Finally, set your masterpiece with a compact, setting powder, or spray. Opt for the M.A.C Prep + Prime Fix+ to give your base the best chance at surviving while looking fresh.

Modern Bridal Makeup Ideas

While picking a makeup look for red lehengas, it is important to match the vibrancy and rich look while complementing (and not covering up) your natural features. Here are some trendy and celeb-approved makeup ideas we recommend:

1. Bronze Goddess

Complement your red lehenga with a brown bronze eyeshadow and rust lipstick as seen on Mouni Roy on her wedding day. The Nykaa quad eyeshadow palette has all the shades you need to recreate this eyeshadow look. Take the glam factor up a notch with the Too Faced false lashes that are a favourite of celebs like Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid.

2. Natural Radiance

All brides have an inner glow on their wedding day (it’s one of those things that just happens). You should not just embrace your natural beauty but show it off with pride with a little help with makeup products to enhance your features. Opt for the viral Benefit Cosmetics Benetint that is suitable for most skin tones for the appearance of plump lips. You can also apply a light layer on your cheeks for a soft blush. For the trending full/bushy eyebrow look, use the top-rated Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel.

3. Soft-ish Glam

If you love the allure of glamorous traditional Indian looks but want something minimal, this is the perfect midway – soft gold eyeshadow, an enviable winged eyeliner, and classic bold red lips. Recreate the look with the Lakme Absolute Explore Eye Paint, which is lightweight and crease-resistant. For that classic red lip, we recommend the L'Oreal Paris Liquid Lipstick in the shade Le Rouge Paris or find the best red lipstick for Indian skin tones with this guide.
