7 Traditional Indian Makeup Styles for Brides

Weddings in India are much beyond ‘two people tying the knots’; these celebrations largely signify the rich traditions and the culture of a vividly diverse nation. The grand rituals and the regal brides stand testimony to this extravaganza.

So, as your wedding bells have rung, prep up to turn every head on the D-day with your stunning bridal look. While pink has become the new red (courtesy the celebs), you can break the mould with traditional Indian bridal makeup.

However, if hiring a renowned makeup artist seems to exceed your budget, you can always opt for a marriage loan from financial institutions. This will not only cover the artist’s fees but also other significant expenses in your wedding efficiently.

Now, check out the 7 unique traditional makeup styles for Indian brides below. Your look can also be a fusion of various Indian cultures, adding a touch of exquisiteness.

1. Going big with the North Indian style

North Indians are known to go big with colours and glitter. However, don’t go overboard with too much of shimmer in your makeup. Subtle shades of metallic shadow on the eyes would better reflect the light, intensifying your North Indian bridal look.

As there is ample scope for experimenting with your look here, ensure to hire a professional offering competitive bridal makeup packages.

2. The flawless Punjabi bride

Punjabi brides either wear a Lehenga or a salwar suit, usually of vibrant shades like maroon, red or pink. Then, there is heavy traditional jewellery such as hand ornaments (kaleera), nose rings (nath), maang tika, etc. forming an integral part of her getup. So, the Punjabi bridal look should be simple with the hair tied back, allowing the veil to cover her head.

3. Be the fuss-free beauty in a Muslim bridal styling

Unlike other typical traditional styles, Muslim brides have the liberty to flaunt their lustrous tresses loose or braided with their veil pinned causally. However, as the nikah wardrobe is mostly of green and pastel hues, emphasis should be on your eyes. Bring out the gracefully bold woman in you with heavily kohled or smoky eyes and bright face shaded in lighter blushes. Do keep your lips lighter!

4. The all-red Bengali look

Bengali brides well know how to strike a balance in their look with the ever-dominating red combined with auspicious white. So, wearing other colours to overwhelm this red-white blend can only spoil the makeup. Instead, go for either glossy or matte red lip colour, highlighting the eyes with golden shimmer or smoky shades and heavy mascara. Compliment your look with the quintessentially Bengali artistic sandalwood patterns on the forehead and red bindi at the centre.

Opt for the best bridal makeup packages if you wish to add a contemporary touch to your traditional Bengali look.

5. Get decked in pristine white as an Assamese bride

Unlike other Indian cultures, the beauty of Assamese brides screams through their white, crème or off-white mekhla chadar, the traditional attire of Assam. They wear vibrant pastel shades adorned with minimal jewellery. Hence, makeup can be kept low to sync with the attire.

6. The ‘nauvari’ beauty as a Maharashtrian bride

Besides the famous ‘nauvari’ sarees in yellow, orange or green hues, Marathi brides are known for their exceptional way of styling too. Go for simpler and softer makeup to balance this splash of bright colours combined with traditional golden jewelleries. Nude or tender pink can work wonders on the lips while fine textures on the eye sockets can highlight your overall bridal look.

7. Draping in the ‘madisaru’ style as a beautiful Tamilian bride

What makes Tamilian brides unique is their ‘madisaru’ style of draping kanjeevaram sarees. The bottom looks like a dhoti, while the top has the pleated pallu. You can keep your hair braided or as a bun, adorning it with special hair accessories. Complement this look with minimal makeup, simply highlighting the eyes. Or, you can also go for gold and bronze combos to emphasize the eyes.

Nowadays, most renowned makeup artists charge a humongous amount for bridal makeup. Usually, packages start from as low as Rs. 15,000 and can go up to Rs. 60,000 and even more. The cost of bridal trial is charged separately, which typically begins from Rs. 4,500.

If this amount surpasses your budget, it’s always feasible to avail a marriage loan. Numerous NBFCs come with pre-approved offers on these loans to make the entire process uncomplicated and less time-consuming.

However, before availing a marriage loan, ensure to go through the personal loan eligibility criteria required to avoid chances of rejection.

So, get the best makeup artist in town to give you a gorgeous traditional bridal look with such financial backing.
