Diksha, The Perfect Location, Faridabad
Witness Diksha’s bridal makeover where she looks nothing less than a dream.
WeddingSutra, in collaboration with Lakmé Absolute and Taneira, brings you WeddingSutra on Location – a curated showcase of top bridal trends and style statements from some of WeddingSutra Favorites.
WeddingSutra On Location, our most popular initiative, was held at the perfectly named The Perfect Location, Faridabad. In the first of this three-part series, bride-to-be Diksha realized her dream bridal look where the latest styles and trends reigned supreme at this shoot.
Whether newly engaged or you have a wedding on the horizon, this bridal makeover was bursting with beauty inspiration.
To start with, we reimagined ‘bridal makeup’ past the blushing bride cliché with lush lashes, pale blushes and a subtle lip. Presenting bride-to-be Diksha who wore her pout with pride with deep red lips and dewy highlights. This look came courtesy makeup artist Mya Dang who used products from Lakmé’s latest range, the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute. It was all intuition and skill as Mya gave Diksha a rejuvenated glow and let her natural beauty shine through.
A vibrant red lehenga from the exquisite collection at Taneira, brought more glamor to the look. Featuring complex embroidery and motifs of flowers, evocative of spring the outfit was confident sophistication, pure and simple. All that was needed was some statement jewellery from Just Jewellery.
As Diksha went about her day, enjoying the indulgent experience, photographer team Shutterdown worked to make this day one she will never forget, capturing the most remarkable moments on their cameras.
Diksha’s parents always envisioned her in a bright all-red lehenga for her wedding. Having picked a subtle pastel outfit for her own forthcoming big day, Diksha fulfilled her parents’ wishes by picking a red one for the makeover experience. She says, “I’m not a fan of the quintessential red lehenga but I was quite smitten by the red creation from Taneira on the day of the shoot. The beautiful embroidery, the details and the traditional design gave it versatility. As heavy as it may look from the outside, it was actually lightweight and perfect for a day ceremony. I think comfort is all that matters when it comes to a bridal lehenga and this one is a perfect fit!”
A choker set works beautifully as wedding jewellery and this piece, crafted using multi-color stones is a perfect example. The gleaming stones align perfectly to form patterns that showcase fine detailing. The traditional necklace was paired with statement earrings and a pair of elegant kadas, all from Just Jewellery.
It was now time for makeup artist Mya Dang to glam Diksha up. Using the range from Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute collection, Diksha was mesmerised by Mya’s skills, “I’m not a beauty expert, nor do I use a lot of makeup daily but Mya’s work really impressed me. The products were excellent and helped accentuate my natural features!” As for the risks that paid off, the bride-to-be says, “I would never have imagined the bold red lips look would suit me so well. My hair was styled in big loose curls and went well with my entire look.”
The ecstatic bride-to-be loves posing for the camera and an opportunity like this was just perfect for her. “Team Shutterdown was very professional, helpful, friendly, and most importantly, patient with all of us. They captured the most flattering frames and knew just what would work for my personality.”
Before signing off, she says, “I’ve been following WeddingSutra for more than a year and every time I read the content on the website, I learn something new, be it about makeup or bridal fashion trends. Keeping a close eye on every post on their Instagram, I once came across WeddingSutra on Location and the whole makeover concept got me excited.”
With her glowing skin, subtle foundation, and bold red lip, Mya Dang encouraged Diksha to enhance her natural complexion on her big day. Mya started off by using Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer and then applied Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation in Ivory Glow. She set the foundation by using the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact, lined her eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner in Blacklast, and with the help of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick, added a flush to her cheeks. She used the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Lip Definer in Red Seductress and the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Lipliner in Ruby to finish the look.
