Here’s a sneak- pre­view of tips and tricks for bridal make- up from the 2011 Lakmé Look Book.

1. Pun­jabi Bride: How to get the look: Set the base of the look with the right foun­da­tion, and a slight hint of blush just to ac­cen­tu­ate the cheek bones. The eyes can be played up by merg­ing shades like gold and pink with shim­mer and a gen­er­ous use of mas­cara. Colour the lips in hues of pink and fin­ish off the look with a touch of gloss. The hair is straight­ened and tied up in a bun.

2. Sikh Bride:

How to get the look: This look be­gins by high­light­ing the ap­ples of the cheek to give them a ra­di­ant glow. Blend in shades of sil­ver, green and pink, fol­lowed by a thin black stroke across the eyes to add def­i­ni­tion. Add a pink lip colour to fin­ish off the look. The hair is straight­ened and tied in a tra­di­tional “sa­gar choti” with a parandhi, to add a cul­tural el­e­ment.

3. Chris­tian Bride:

How to get the look: The face is given a nat­u­ral ra­di­ance by adding a rosy hint to the cheeks, along with a touch of shim­mer. Ap­ply a nude shade to the eye­lid, blend in with some sil­ver and run a thin black line over the lash line. Smudge the lower lids with a shade of brown just to give it that nat­u­ral sim­plis­tic look. Get creamy nude lips with a rosy lip colour. The hair is held back loosely with soft, fram­ing curls.

4. Mar­wari Bride:

How to get the look: High­light the bride’s cheek­bones with a slight tint of rosy blush. Cover the lower outer eye­lids in shades of gold, brown and smudge in a lit­tle dash of black. High­light the eye­brows with a me­tal­lic shade of gold and at­tain flaw­less thick lashes by adding a dash of mas­cara. A shade of warm cop­per for the lips will be a per­fect ac­com­plice for this look. Her hair is done up in a sim­ple bun, which is dec­o­rated

with ac­ces­sories.

5. Gu­jarati Bride:

How to get the look: The bride’s cheeks are ac­cen­tu­ated with a del­i­cate tint of pink, which gives her a ra­di­ant glow. Adorn the eyes with shades of ma­genta- pink blended in with an ex­otic shade of green and black eye­liner. Com­plet­ing the look is a deep pink on the lips. A neat bun with hair puffed up at the sides.

6. Kan­nada Bride:

How to get the look: Her rich cul­ture is em­bel­lished with deep shades of crim­son and tones of bronze. Glossy ma­roon lips, golden eyes and thick lashes add to her ex­otic charm. Her hair is done up in a long braid, start­ing from a French hair roll. The braid is em­bel­lished with tra­di­tional jas­mine flow­ers.

7. Ben­gali Bride:

How to get the look: De­mure and yet in­di­vid­u­al­is­tic, the Ben­gali bride looks tra­di­tional with her deep set kohl eyes. Gen­er­ous amounts of mas­cara and deeply lined eyes high­light the fea­tures of the Ben­gali bride. Hints of bronze and gold on her cheeks give her a del­i­cate blush. A deep shade of ma­roon beau­ti­fies her lips and com­pletes the make- up. Her hair is parted in the mid­dle with a slight puff on the sides and an elab­o­rate big bun to fin­ish.

8. Mus­lim Bride:

How to get the look: Ap­ply a shade of green to the cor­ner of the eyes along with some gold shim­mer and mas­cara for per­fectly de­fined lashes. Pick a me­tal­lic colour for the lips and dab on a shade of gold to add an ex­tra touch of glam­our.

9. Tamil Bride:

How to get the look: Bold kohl eyes, strik­ing long lashes and deep ma­roon coloured lips add to her ex­otic mys­tique. A golden base for the eyes is blended in with shades of green and sil­ver. Her hair is done up with a mid­dle part­ing, braided and adorned with gajras. For more in­for­ma­tion please visit your near­est Lakmé Sa­lon or call 1800 102 2221
