For a bride, finalizing her looks for different functions is as important as choosing her ensembles. That's where makeup plays an important role. When it comes to the all-important pheras, it may be confusing to zero in on one specific visage given all the options available. However, makeup experts can create unique looks to match the outfit, theme and ambiance of the ceremony. Here are our top phera looks from some of our WeddingSutra Favorites to inspire you.

1. Delightfully Defined Eyes
Makeup artist Gazal Surana gives this bride pretty winged eyes that have been sharply defined by kohl. She covers the eyelids with glittery gold eyeshadow that mirrors the gold thread work on the traditional red ensemble that the bride is wearing. Bright red lips complement and complete the whole look perfectly.

2. Metallic Teal Temptress
Lustrous teal eyeshadow steals the show in this look created by makeup artist Heena Khan. The dramatic deep teal eyelids offer a delightful contrast to the light blue outfit. Lush lashes and strobed cheeks add that radiant glow and balance out the look.

3. Traditional Yet Trendy
This South Indian bride goes for a traditional look with temple jewellery that pairs well with her emerald green saree. Her look by makeup artist Ramya Hanu highlights the individual features of the bride, be it the dark defined brows, kohl-lined eyes and striking lips. Her hairstyle further accentuates her facial features instead of drawing attention away from them.

4. The Half-Kohled Princess
Lush lashes, bright eyes and strong brows are the perfect complement to the striking jewellery in this look by makeup artist Tamanna Rooz. The magic of mascara and half-kohl under the rim line accentuates the eyes and offers an interesting take on the typical fully defined kohl-lined eyes of Indian brides.

5. The Mesmerizer
Makeup artist Sukanya Manerikar illuminates the corners of this bride's eyes for that extra sparkle which is immediately noticeable. The look is beautifully balanced with soft, peach lips and the bride's naturally radiant smile.

8. The Maharashtrian Navri
Maharashtrian brides typically opt for ornaments and wedding outfits that are specific to their culture. Most beauty experts too stick to the basics when tradition trumps novelty. Makeup artist Richa Thakkar gives this bride dramatic lashes, dark defined eyes and golden bronze eyeshadow to match the jewels. The on-point contouring with a traditional nose ring and bindi enhances the look.

To match the bride's personality, Makeup artist Mausam Gandhi lets her eyes do the talking. She goes for some intense work on the eyeliner and false eyelashes along with deep kohled rim lines. A sweet shade of pink that matches the lovely ensemble completes this look.
