When actors Alia and Ranbir finally tied the knot at Kapoor's family home in Mumbai, their outfits and Alia Bhatt's wedding look broke the internet. The Bollywood bride's makeup and styling seemed perfect for an intimate, at-home wedding ceremony. Furthermore, the ivory tones of her Sabyasachi outfits brought her entire sublime look together in the most perfect way. 

Alia's entire look had some major reactions from the people on the internet. Now, with every celebrity bride comes major goals and trends that many brides-to-be tend to follow. With Alia, it was her subtle, organic vibe, and the whole 'effortless' look that she presented at her wedding. And we're sure that many brides are gearing to take inspiration from her au natural look for their weddings. 

So, to help you, future brides, recreate Alia's gorgeous wedding look and also learn a few good beauty choices by the starlet, here are a few tips to keep in mind!

Elements Everyone Loved About Alia's Wedding Look

🌟More Skin, Less Makeup

While you might invest in hiring a celebrity makeup artist for your wedding, the real game lies in the pre-wedding skincare routine. Your makeup will look the best when the canvas is taken care of. With Alia's look, we get to understand this concept face first. While technology-driven facials will help you take care of a host of skin issues such as pigmentation, skin congestion and acne, something as simple as cleansing, moisturising and sunscreen are what can make or break your skin. Alia Bhatt’s wedding makeup look (with visible freckles) relied heavily on hydrated skin and used foundation and concealer only where necessary.

🌟Aue Naturale Makeup

From her mehendi, nails to the custom kaleeras, everything was toned down for Bhatt’s big reveal. Her lashes looked natural, rather than heavy falsies which Indian brides often love to sport and the freckles (you can use a brown liner or brow pencil to create them) gloriously showed through. The wash of bronzy tones over her eyelids, the nude lipstick and the thin line of kohl were just absolutely perfect. What we loved the most was how her MUA Puneet B Saini, used her blush to create a gentle contour to enhance Bhatt’s bridal beauty.

🌟Free-Flowing Hair

Unlike so many other brides who chose to go for a slick, tight bun, Alia Bhatt's wedding look was a breath of fresh air with her layered hair styled in soft waves by Flavien Heldt. It served as the crown of Bhatt’s carefree look which she effortlessly pulled off. The heavy mathapatti just added enough understated luxe to the bohemian hairdo. Honestly, we're loving all these Bollywood brides with their hair down!

🌟Strong Brow Game

The one thing that made Alia's makeup look extremely amazing thanks to her fluffy and full brows. When you are going for the no-makeup look, it’s crucial to just fill in the brows only where necessary and brush the hair in place to make them look naturally bushy and full. Don’t fill the beginning of your brows, as it gives a painted-on, fake look.

🌟Pretty & Natural Nails

It’s the minute details that make the difference when the minimal bride is decked in ivory and sporting natural skin. Despite the sparkly wedding ring, we couldn't ignore how Alia paid attention to the littlest details, sporting neutral, almost translucent nails. 

Tips To Achieve Alia Bhatt's Minimal Makeup Look

✨Amp Up Your Skincare Regime

While you should stick to your regular CTM, there are certain additional things that you can incorporate into your skincare to boost your skin's health. Try adding serums into your routine that suits your skin. Serums with hyaluronic acid will boost skin hydration while products with niacinamide will aid in achieving an even skin tone. 

Along with your skincare, utilise salon services like regular facials and cleanups. If you prefer visiting a dermatologist for your skin treatments, then consult them for the right kind of treatments that will help prep your skin for your wedding. If you're a more DIY person, then go ahead and add face packs and sheet masks to your regime. 

(Note: Beware of trying anything experimental on your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. Do not go in for any experimental treatment just because someone suggests it. It may hamper your skin. Instead, stick to the stuff that works best for you, or consult a dermatologist if you have problems like active acne, rosacea, sunburns etc.)

✨Get A Good Hair Treatment

It is very important to take care of your hair as well. Get regular hair spas or go ahead for a nice hair nourishing treatment like Keratin treatment or a Hot Oil Treatment. Or if you're a DIY haircare girl, then whip up your hair mask and give your hair the right kinda boost! If you're planning to get your hair coloured then ask your hairstylist to incorporate a Plex treatment into your colour (like OlaPlex, OmegaPlex or FibrePlex). All in all, if you want your hair to glow and unfurl like Alia's perfect beach waves, then taking care of your hair is a must!

✨Choose Skin Friendly Makeup Products

The last thing, but the most important thing, you need to take into account is the makeup you use. Proper skin and hair care a few months before your wedding will surely do most of the work for you. So, on you're wedding day you won't have to go with intense and heavy makeup. Honestly, the whole idea of recreating Alia's wedding look is to embrace the minimalism that she displays. That means, choosing hydrating and lightweight makeup products that do not require a tonne of application. Here are a few options you'll find yourself reaching for. 

💜Hydrating Primer

One of the most essential things that will give you a flawless base is a hydrating primer. It will smooth your pores and make your skin supple and ready for all the makeup that comes next! Here are some of our top picks.

💜Tinted Moisturiser/ Hydrating Foundation

When it comes to achieving a dewy look, which is also very light, it's best to go in with either a tinted moisturiser or a hydrating foundation, which is probably what Alia's MUA did as well. Because your skin will be in great condition (if you religiously follow your skincare), then you won't require a heavy, full coverage foundation that sits over your skin. Instead, a medium coverage foundation or a tinted moisturiser would do the trick.

Once you've set your base, it's time to add some colour to your cheeks. Blush is ideal for adding a hint of natural colour to the cheeks. This is perfect if you're looking for a vibrant, fresh-faced look. A matte or luminous blush should do the trick. It will help highlight the apples of your cheeks and make you look wedding ready!

Once you have some flush to your cheeks, it's time to add some warmth. The best way to go about it is by using a bronzer. We think that Alia's MUA used a matte bronzer instead of a luminous one. So, be sure to use a matte bronzer that’s free from glitter when you're chiselling out your cheekbones.

💜Nude Lipstick

One of the most important things that bring this lip together is nude lipstick. While the term 'nude lipstick' differs from person to person, depending on their skin tone, the idea is to choose something that's close to your skin tone but still stands out.

💜Neutral Eye Shadow

When it comes to eye makeup, we know that Alia's eye makeup was very minimal. Just a wash of warm colour over the eyelids and if you want, you can add a little shimmer eyeshadow. Then all you need is some mascara and kajal!

💜Brow Enhancers

The one thing that made Alia's makeup look extremely amazing thanks to her fluffy and full brows. Eyebrows have the power to completely change the look of the face by correcting minor flaws such as small eyes or eyes that are too far apart. The right brow shape can add length and definition to your face. And to complete your look, you need a good brow product that helps add depth to your face.

Last, but not least, you need a mascara. Mascara helps not only to emphasize makeup but also gives it a special look. Perfectly coated lashes create a kind of frame that makes the eyes look deeper and more beautiful. A high-quality mascara darkens, lengthens, thickens and curls our eyelashes. So, if you're looking to finish your look with some drama, here are some mascaras that can help you!
