How to ace the wedding guest beauty game like Priyanka Chopra Jonas

Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s sartorial sensibilities have always reflected her Indian heritage. Her wedding ensembles still serve as inspiration for many brides. We haven’t forgotten her Sindoori wedding lehenga by Sabyasachi, her bohemian rainbow mehendi look by the dynamic duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla or her iconic Ralph Lauren white wedding dress. She places an equal if not larger emphasis on her hair and makeup. Her go-to hairdos are the sleek bun, a high perched ponytail and bouncy waves while for makeup she swears by her bold red lip colour, winged eyeliner and dramatic lashes. Ahead, bridesmaids take cues from Priyanka Chopra Jonas on how to ace wedding guest beauty style.

Bohemian beauty

It is safe to say that one of Priyanka’s favourite wedding guest look themes is bohemia and she aces it every time. When trying to replicate this theme, make sure that the hair is styled in a way where it is free-flowing, slightly messy and looks effortless. Messy beach waves as seen on the actress are the ideal hairdo. As for the makeup, avoid taking away attention from the outfit. The fail-proof make-up combination would be a soft shimmery eye shadow, matte nude or peach lip colour and the right amount of bronzer.

Classic meets contemporary

The melange of classic with contemporary can often be a tricky one. The right way to mix the two is to keep either the makeup and hairstyle contemporary and the outfit classic and traditional, or vice versa. The Citadel actress has seamlessly paired a contemporary polka dot red and white saree which has a full sleeves red blouse with statement oversized chandbaalis. Her bold red lip, full brows and kohl-laid waterlines topped with a small black bindi are the perfect ingredients for a classic traditional Indian makeup look. 

Flower power

Often times one feels that their hair lacks that extra oomph and liveliness to it. Look no further than floral accessories and flowers. They come in all sizes and colours and give you that long-lasting fragrance, even after your favourite perfume wears off. A go-to flower accent would be a Mogra gajra neatly wrapped around a bun. In this case, white roses have been skilfully pinned to one side of her hair and the other side of her hair has been left open with messy waves. One should also consider artificial flower hair accessories as they last longer. 

Don’t shy away from drama

Unapologetic and unabashed–are two ways to describe this actress and she certainly doesn’t shy away from drama in her ensembles. When adding dramatic elements to your look, striking the appropriate balance is essential. Taking PC’s outfit as an example, her frilly, ruffly outfit and voluminous updo with tendrils hanging from the side styled to frame her face are the two dramatic elements in her look. Her subtle makeup includes lilac lip gloss, contour and emerald jewellery. When opting for a high-drama sartorial look, it’s always best to rely on minimal makeup to let the garment stand out. 

Retro glam

Black tie and white tie outfit themes have become a part of the Indian wedding shindig in recent years. From cocktails to receptions, these themes are commonly found. When choosing your hairdo, evaluating neat and glamorous retro hairstyles will not let you down. Especially vintage curls with an emphasised amount of backcombed volume on the crown like this current photo. Pair this hairdo with a subtle matte pink lipstick, outline the lips with a nude pencil close to the original colour of this lip, winged eyeliner and some highlighter will complete this look.
