We believe makeup has great power and the right kind of makeup can make or break your bridal look. Being a bride, it is important that you put in a lot of thought in finalising the right makeup artist and go for makeup trials to avoid the last moment blunders.

The professional makeup artist will recommend you the lipstick colour that matches your bridal lehenga the best. However, we still suggest it is a good idea to know the perfect wedding day lip shade beforehand so that you can visualise how it’s going to look on the D-day and are well-prepared!


Wearing red for an Indian wedding is a no-brainer and so is pairing red lips with it. There are so many shades to choose from, go bold with deep wine lips or grab all the attention with bright red. Everyone would agree that you can never go wrong with RED!

If you want your eyes to do all the talking and are planning for really elaborate eye makeup, we suggest you go for lighter lip shades like browns and nudes with peachy undertones.

Pink is such a lovely colour with a wide shade range from deep fuschia to magenta to shell pink. It brings out the natural bridal glow and suits fair and dusky brides alike. If your lehenga is bright pink, you can either match your lips with the same colour or go one shade lighter to keep the look minimal.

Opt for nude pink and peach lipsticks for a sophisticated look if you are planning to wear a pastel pink lehenga on your wedding.

New age brides are challenging bridal fashion rules and going for some bold choices in lehenga colours. We came across some stunning brides donning turquoise, royal blue and green lehenga on social media and absolutely loved them.

To balance the whole look, it’s a smart idea to go for the nude palette. Choose lip colours with pink and brown undertones that suit every skin tone.
