Parineeti Chopra’s refined and diverse sartorial and beauty choices have made her an It-girl, turning heads not only at her cousin Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s wedding in 2018 but also at other traditional celebrations and with her on-screen personas. Chopra’s signature beauty looks feature seamlessly blended smokey eyes, rosy pink lips, sleek straight hair, and impeccably chiselled cheeks.
Chopra has a knack for acing wedding beauty looks, making her the go-to person for inspiration when it comes to bridal make-up and hairstyles. She effortlessly blends modern and traditional elements to create a timeless look that can complement any bride’s personality and style.
Moreover, rumours abound that the Hasee Toh Phasee star is all set to tie the knot with a certain politician and Member of Parliament (hint: it’s Raghav Chaddha). Their frequent sightings together around the city, from IPL matches to intimate dinners, are further fanning the flames of speculation.
If the word on the grapevine is true, we can expect Chopra to don a breathtaking bridal look that will undoubtedly set new beauty and fashion trends for brides-to-be.
Old school glam
We all have a soft spot for vintage styles as they transport us to a bygone era. For a striking ’70s look, don’t hold back on the eyeliner and go for a full winged effect. For those feeling adventurous, try a double-winged eyeliner to amplify your retro vibe. Opt for a popping bubblegum pink lip colour and match it with the same shade for your blush to complete the look.
Maid of Honour staple
When you’re unsure about what to wear, it’s always safe to go for classics. Chopra’s ivory and dull gold Sabyasachi lehenga, which she wore to Priyanka and Nick’s wedding, is a timeless look that every bridesmaid should keep in mind for upcoming nuptials. The delicate polki double choker, oversized jhumkas, and statement rings are timeless jewellery pieces that add to the charm of the outfit.
For beauty choices as a wedding guest, opt for a French pink lip colour, well-defined eyebrows, and kohl-rimmed eyes to keep it simple yet elegant. You can complete the look with a bindi of your choice to add a traditional touch to the ensemble.
Contour like there’s no tomorrow
Contouring is a defining technique that is often overlooked when it comes to traditional ensembles. It has the power to enhance all your features and give you a chiselled and lifted appearance, provided you use the right contour shade that is not too dark or too light. To further define your look, set the contour with an illuminating setting powder. Additionally, styling your hair in soft waves will add movement and a touch of glamour to your appearance.
Classic smokey eyes
When done correctly, smoky eyes can add an ultra-glamorous aura to your appearance. Follow in the footsteps of Chopra and consider using varying shades of brown instead of black if you’re already going for kohl-rimmed eyes. A caramel-tinted lip gloss, along with a touch of highlighter, will add a subtle oomph to your look.
For your hair, a voluminous messy ponytail will hold everything together in a chic manner without getting in the way. Remember, it’s essential to strike a balance between all the elements of your beauty routine to achieve a cohesive and stunning look.
Marry your outfit and the beauty look
An essential lesson in fashion and beauty is finding the right balance between your attire and makeup. Ideally, one should be the focal point while the other elevates the look. In Chopra’s case, her sequined blue ombre Manish Malhotra saree takes centre stage while her make-up complements the ensemble.
To complete the look, opt for straight and sleek hair with flowing ends. For make-up, champagne-toned shimmery eyeshadow and natural-looking false eyelashes will add a touch of glam without overpowering the sari.
Switch up your hair part
Switching your hair part is a simple and effective way to achieve a brand new look without committing to a cut or colour change. Chopra often switches between a side and middle part, allowing her to dramatically alter her appearance, particularly during family functions and film promotions. Additionally, changing your part regularly can help maintain hair health by avoiding breakage from having the same part for an extended period.
