Want to be that girl in the baraat who can give serious competition to the bride? Well, a perfect outfit is not just enough. Acing the jewellery, hair and makeup department is what will make you look ten on ten (maybe even an eleven). Statement jewellery and bindis are huge on the fashion block this wedding season. You can experiment with buns or curls and add personality to them with mogras and maangtikas. Dramatic eyes or bold lips, have your way (but never go both ways). Choose your favourite look as we tell you how to rock it.
Magic of mogras
Throw all the attention to your pretty face like actor Sonam Kapoor, by centre-parting your hair and pulling them back in a neat bun just above your nape. Add some floral spin with mogras around your bun. When the neckline of your dress is high, leave your neck bare. Infuse some tadka with gold danglers. Allow bindi to lend an Indian touch to your look. Finish off with liner and red lips.
Up for some kohl action
Actor Deepika Padukone looks a stunner. Kohl lined eyes with muted lipcolour works perfectly for her. Leaving the neck alone when the sari has a heavy border works wonders. Instead, say yes to big jhumkas. Tie your hair back in a neat bun to remain fussfree while gracing a sari.
If you have a clean complexion, let your face do the talking. Like her ensemble, actor Kangana Ranaut keeps her hair and makeup simple. And doesn’t she look absolutely lovely? Wear no eye makeup. Just go for a little blush and lipgloss. A tiny touch of bindi is all you need.
Want to flaunt your long, voluminous locks? Go for side-swept curls, like actor Malaika Arora Khan. When wearing subdued white, add drama to your look with makeup and accessories. Go for kohled eyes, coloured lips and highlighted cheeks. Bling up your look by wearing a statement neckpiece and ditch your earrings for good.
We love the mess
We have to give it to actor Sonakshi Sinha for acing the look. Let’s start with her messy updo for a flirty, fun take. She then adds some retro drama with winged eyes and bindi just above the eyebrow line. Going light on the lips with winged liner is smart. Oxidised or silver jewellery works as an icing on the cake with black ensembles. Statement earrings complete her look.
Glam up with maangtika
You must invest in a pretty maangtika, like actor Athiya Shetty. Skip earrings and neckpieces, let a cocktail ring give company to your maangtika. In the hair department, it’s a good idea to leave them open. You can go for poker straight hair or soft curls.
