After the big reveal of Alia Bhatt’s pared-down natural wedding look, the bridal trend quickly shifted from heavy makeup to the no makeup look. This trend was also seen at Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif’s wedding look as well. All these gorgeous brides were clad in designer lehenga and saree that stood out from the conventional colors and obviously set trends for the rest of the world to draw inspiration from. Even though we can’t help but admit that they looked divine, it doesn’t mean you have to let go of the look you have in your mind and switch to a no-makeup look for your big day. Here in this article, we have discussed how wedding trends affect your taste and why you should stick to your own input to ensure your wedding look is inspired by what you want alone. Read on!

Celebrities like Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt are often clad in makeup and gorgeous dresses when they appear on the red carpet. But for their weddings, they choose to go for a no-makeup look. No makeup look is something Indian weddings were not very used to seeing initially. Mainly because the trend was always red lips, deep eye shadows, and heavily puffed hair. However, these actresses not only broke the conventional colors for the wedding but also the makeup and hairstyle. They choose to look as natural as possible and put forth their beauty naturally for the D Day.

Alia and Anushka got their wedding makeup done by the same makeup artist, Puneet B. Saini. It was a refreshing change from the star look we were so used to seeing. The best part is that the brides looked absolutely stunning, even with natural makeup and subtle colors. But now, if we speak for ourselves, we have one wedding that will be filmed, unlike the actresses who have worn the wedding attire for multiple movie shoots. So it is obvious they had to try something different for their big day. But for us, that is the only photoshoot we will have clad in bridal attire, so you can be as glamorous as you like without any pressure of following trends.

Weddings Should Be About Your Personal Choice

Wedding is the day you should feel like the queen of the world, so there is no looking at what others are doing or wearing. It is about what you like and want to wear. Weddings are never quiet affairs, so there is a lot of advice on what you should be wearing from everyone around you. It is not just about your look or what dress you choose. It can also be whom to invite, whether or not there is to be a veil and how much skin you are willing to show. But is a wedding really about the debate? Not necessarily. Take a deep breath, look for inspiration from social media, fix on a look, and stick to it.

Be it full glam or no makeup, no one should dictate how the bride ought to look. A wedding should be about what makes you feel good. So if you like bold makeup, you can go as bold as you like; if you want to stick to your natural features, add simple makeup. If you wish to get smokey eye makeup, add that khol. After all, a wedding is a day to celebrate with glamor, sparkle, and colors, and years later, when you flip through the wedding album, you should not feel like you missed out on something just because you were trying to tune in with the trends.

We must all remember that trends keep changing, and they are just new ways of doing things.

What might look incredible on someone might not suit you as much. So it is essential to choose something that suits your preferences. Now that the natural makeup trend is thriving, if you think it works for you, feel free to experiment with it. If you want to highlight your beautiful features like eyes, you can go for a similar look like Deepika that might bring out the shape of your eyes and make you look absolutely gorgeous. There is no hard and fast rule to stick to trends for your big day. Every girl envisions her wedding look since her early teenage; nothing should come between her dream look and her wedding day. So, in all the celebrity weddings that took place in the recent decade, which celebrity brides did you draw your inspiration from? Let us know in the comments section. Happy wedding!
