The History

Creators transform their regular looks to resemble Indian bridal attire and makeup in a series of transitions via editing. In contrast to the conventional Western bridal style, which often consists of a white gown and veil, Indian bridal wear and beauty is vibrant, symbolic, and infused with history. Indian bridal makeup is a crucial component of the wedding preparations, highlighting the bride’s beauty with vivid colors and elaborate patterns that pay homage to her cultural background. What makes the trend so popular is the creative execution and the anticipation of seeing the glamorous look at the end—because all the bright colors, bold eyes and lip shades, dramatic makeup, heavy gold jewelry, and sometimes, a colorful bridal veil make up an ensemble that truly showcases the beauty of Indian wedding fashion. 

The upside of beauty trends is that it brings more people to the original material and gives other users exposure to Indian beauty and Hindi music, or other people’s culture in general.
