4. Minimalistic makeup
The traditional South Indian bridal look is about minimalistic makeup, in which the saree and the jewelry shine through.

7. The monotone vibe
This bridal makeup is entirely inspired by the makeup used by the dancers of South India. It might seem a bit outlandish, but it gives an exquisite look when a pro does it. The makeup for the bride is all about having a monotone vibe. For instance, if the saree is of orange shade, then from the eyeshadow palette to the lipstick, the colors used are different shades of orange. But it is essential to keep it matte, so the bride doesn't look like a colored disco ball.
8. The golden hue
You would think a golden makeup, paired with a bright kanjeevaram saree, which is traditional of a South Indian bride's attire, would be too much. But the reality is with the temple jewelry, a shade of gold eyeshadow teamed with dark brown or black on the outer sides of the eyelids will make them look pretty and offbeat.
9. Making it shimmer
When the wedding takes place in the morning, it is a good idea to have shimmery eyes with a fuchsia lip from De’Lanci 18 Colors La Catrina Lipstick Palette to add more charm to the look. In addition, the glossy nature of the eye makeup with intricately detailed red bindi will give a striking look when paired with chunky gold jewelry.
10. Dramatic and bold
One of the best combinations when creating the perfect south Indian bridal makeup is combining berry red lips with golden eyes. It is a classic combination but to make it contemporary; one must create a perfectly contoured look with De’lanci Contour Multifunction Palette. Trust us; it will be a stunner where no one can look anywhere else when you walk in.
11. Pretty in pink
Suppose you are one of those brides interested in pushing the envelope more than what tradition calls for. How about combining pink lips with golden nude eyeshadow palette and effective highlighting. It is possible to match the yellow or gold kanjeevaram with a pink blouse and take the same blouse shade for your lipstick.
12. The dewy look
At times the no-makeup look serves the purpose best. If you have a louder and more extravagant saree with similar heavy jewelry keeping it simple with a dewy makeup look that will accentuate your features is the best way. It’s required to learn how to apply lipstick as a beginner. And, then you can use blush pink and De’lanci Matte Lipstick set with a little blush to highlight your cheeks, and the rest of the attire does the talking.
