It’s true – when it comes to the wedding, there’s an overload of advice from relatives and the media. So how do you choose what works for you? Well, we think you need to match the function with your personality and take it from there. Wedding receptions are supposed to be fun, relaxed and enjoyable. There’s a lot of laughter and smiling and your makeup should complement your personality and the mood of the moment.

We bring you the season’s hottest makeup looks from around the country that are guaranteed to help you look your best at your wedding reception.

Shimmer and Contour
A flawless visage by Rose Beauty Parlour in Bhopal – the makeup artist uses a universal palette in gold and subtle contouring to bring a sophisticated glamour to the bride.

Reception Looks

Get that Radiant Glow
If you want to look natural with minimal makeup, you’ll love this iridescent effect created by Ravideep Dhawan from Amritsar who placed emphasis on the eyes with a soft, smoky effect, letting your bridal glow shine on.

Reception Looks

A Natural Blush
Trust makeup artist Sheena Kohli in Ambala to give you a delicate glamour with a feather-light finish. Nancy Sobti, the bride, is in full bloom with an overall pink palette and subtle contouring in the same tones for an extra bit of oomph.

Reception Looks

Pretty in Pink
Pink is a favourite trousseau colour and it reflects beautifully on the bride’s face. A skillful makeup artist like Farzana Khusro in Indore, created a beautiful balance between bride Geet Kukreja’s saturated pink outfit by keeping the visage matte and adding a bit of fun with a pop of coral on the lips and upper eyelids.

Reception Looks

Movie Star Glam
With masses of hair in a gloriously decadent, loosely-bound bouffant, the bride’s sharp, gamine features are highlighted perfectly by Samantha Jagan who creates a show-stopping, paparazzi-magnet look with structural emphasis on the eyes and lips.

Reception Looks

Glimmer Glam
Learn a thing or two about playing with light from Lucknow-based makeup artist, Bhaavya Kapur as she creates a naturally luminous look on bride Sonali Agarwal. A cream based blush and a touch of illuminator and there you have it, a glamorous glimmer that seems to come from within.

Reception Looks

Red Alert
Makeup Artist Niyati Shah reinvents the use of the colour red with statement lips on a matte visage. This is a standout look especially if your ensemble is heavily embroidered, brightly coloured or you’re wearing heavy jewellery.

Reception Looks

In The Pink
Bareilly-based makeup artist Shivani deftly brings out a gorgeous, understated look with a muted palette and highlights in rose and dusky, sunset hues which works wonders on this bride.

Reception Looks

The Fresh-Faced Allure
Sometimes less is more and if you’re not used to wearing layers of makeup or don’t want to seem like you are, then we suggest you follow Pune-based artist Sonia Kewalramani’s subtle enhancing of the bride’s natural good looks.

Reception Looks

Earthy Tones
Indian skin tones work beautifully with olive and earth tints and this Ajmer based makeup artist from the Saltanat Academy works it to his advantage with a gentle glow drawing focus to a red lip on the bride, Pooja, accentuating her features perfectly.
