You cannot go wrong with the red hot shade for the bridal makeup. This one’s for those who want to flaunt their traditional bridal ensemble which can be red/maroon lehenga or Saree. Rather than choosing hot reds, we recommend the ones that come with a fine blue undertone, brick reds or the cool toned reds. These shades will impart a glamorous look to all skin tones in no time.

What color is your outfit is of utmost importance. Warm berry pinks go perfectly well with the Sarees or Lehengas that are pink, lavender or purple in color. Not everyone is comfortable in hot pinks and the latest fad of neon does not really go with all skin tones. So, we recommend peachy pink shades, deep magenta or a watermelon pink for that bright pink look. Soft rose is the best lipstick shade for fair Indian skin.

Though many may argue that nudes are not really the best lipstick shades for Indian skin, we believe that nude shades are not for everyone. There’s a nude shade for all skin tones and can be carried only by those who are really confident. The beauty of the lipstick shade lies in its natural undertone that makes you look sexy in no time, only if have chosen the right one. Avoid those that give a wiped off look, and settle for coffee, beige, sheer, ivory or honey shades in glossy or shimmery textures. Give your eyes a dramatic look with the classic smokey effect and dab on some bronzer to match up with the nude lipstick shade.
