Anushka Sharma’s Makeup Artist Decodes All Her Wedding Looks
So VirushkaKiShaadi has been trending everywhere since days and I won’t talk about the same venue, pictures, etc., I personally loved her makeup and outfits throughout i.e. all the days.
All her outfits and jewellery were by Sabyasachi. For makeup, she had Puneet B Saini with whom she has been working since years. They have done 7 movies and lot’s of events and promotions together.
Anushka had booked Puneet for 5 days and she had no idea about the wedding, a day before their travel 😀
So let’s decode her wedding looks, by each function.
Puneet says ‘We were in great weather so I was sure the makeup wasn’t going to move. Also with Anushka, the makeup usually stays on, we only had to touch up the lipstick. It only took us about 1.5-2 hours on each day (to get her ready), with hair and makeup going on simultaneously.’
Anushka wore a burgundy velvet saree for the ring ceremony. Puneet says ‘For the ring ceremony which was a night event, we wanted to keep the lips nude and eyes smoky. I wanted her eyes to be striking but not just have a whole lot of black around the eyes. We used a gradation of colours, my favourite aubergine and a brown with red undertones. I didn’t want the entire eye to be covered, just till the crease of the eyes.’
She chose a bright orange and pink lehenga with a floral crop top for her mehendi. I absolutely loved how vibrant and colourful the outfit was, perfect for a ceremony like mehendi. Puneet says ‘For the mehandi, she was wearing a lot of colours so we kept the makeup fairly basic, very wintery with cream blush, minimal makeup and lots of mascara. All the attention was going to be on her mehandi and clothes.’

She wore a blush pink lehenga with floral detailing and intricate work all over. It’s one of the most elegant lehengas I have seen, and she carried it off beautifully with matching jewellery, both by Sabyasachi. Puneet says ‘On her wedding day, the outfit was so beautiful and royal and the entire setup was a page out of a princess’ diary. We didn’t want the makeup to be too smoky or with heavy liner. I kept it very soft, we used a brown kohl and smudged it, shadows in peach-pink tones and lots of mascara. As a bride, you have so much happening on your wedding day, to balance your hair, makeup, outfit and jewellery. I’d say I wanted her to look like herself on her wedding day, that was the aesthetic. We didn’t want the makeup to look anything like it did on the night of the ring ceremony, we wanted a complete contrast. We wanted it to enhance her natural beauty.’
Apart from the ring ceremony which was a night event and she went for smoky eyes, for both mehendi and the wedding which were day time events, her makeup was very soft and natural. I have never seen a celebrity bride with simple, no fuss, beautiful and all natural makeup on her wedding day. Kudos to her to go for what she likes and not give in to peer/society pressure of looking super heavy and all decked up on the wedding day.
I myself went for natural makeup on my wedding day and I love it when brides go all natural. As the outfit and jewellery is anyway heavy, natural is what looks the best because you don’t want to add heavy makeup on heavy outfit and jewellery. But yes, to each his own. If you like heavy makeup, then surely go for it, as it’s your most special day 🙂
I liked each of the three looks and I can’t choose one. I loved the mehendi outfit and of course the wedding day. Her outfit, makeup and jewellery was all perfect on her wedding day but the most special thing was her smile from ear to ear 🙂
