Decoding the bridal beauty trend of the season

Flawless but simple, glamorous but subtle – 2023 is the year of minimal beauty. With dewy makeup, flushed cheeks and nude lips, new-age brides have embraced the au naturel look for their big day. This less is more approach which has been endorsed by many celebrities, is all about enhancing the natural beauty of the bride and is perfect for brides who want to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin on their wedding day.

Last year when actress Alia Bhatt tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony, she opted for muted makeup with a thin stroke of liner, a small maroon bindi and a big smile. Her charming and effortless look went viral and instantly became a favourite with brides-to-be. Recently, we also had Kiara Advani channelling minimal glam on her wedding day with a clean base, rosy blush and highlighter all blended and layered seamlessly together. Mascara lad lashes and nude lip colour completed her modern bridal look.

A theme of minimalism was prominent in all of Athiya Shetty’s wedding looks, who also opted for understated makeup for her wedding with kohl-lined eyes, pink lips and a pale pink eyeshadow and exuded elegance with her classic beauty look. Similarly, designer Masaba Gupta who got hitched earlier this year, also went for an earthy clean look with heavily kohl rimmed lower lash line, clear mascara, bronzed cheeks and a peachy nude lip for her big day.

The no makeup-makeup look can be achieved with a skin-forward approach, by prepping the skin with a moisturiser first and following it up with a lightweight foundation, a wash of soft pink blush and rose-tinted lips, so that makeup layered on top simply accentuates the existing texture and glow of the skin. From a bohemian mehendi to a Bollywood-inspired sangeet night, this monochromatic look is perfect for all pre-wedding festivities. So make it a part of your wedding mood board, because this is one trend that is here to stay.
