Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi had a picture-perfect wedding back in February 2021—an intimate affair with just their close family and friends. But the smaller invite list didn’t stop Mirza from turning up the glam—she paired her traditional red sari with a glossy, dreamy makeup look and hairstyle you’ll want to cop for your big day. Here’s what you can learn from her now.

Since you’re going to have so many photos taken at your wedding—close-ups included—you’ll want a bright, healthy canvas to layer makeup on. For Mirza, this has always been key. “I wish I was born in the ’40s or the ’60s. I’d be so happy. In terms of hair and makeup, I generally go for a ‘less is more’ look— hair pinned up in waves, and my skin all glowing and dewy,” she shared. For her wedding, she stayed true to what she loves, applying just a little foundation and concealer to balance things out, and then dusted on a little blush to upgrade it.

Mirza likes to accentuate her expressive eyes with a glossy lid, and she did the same for her wedding. If you love it too, you can recreate it by using a cream eyeshadow on the lid, and then applying a clear balm or oil on top. And if you’re doing it for your wedding day, you’ll want to use a lot of mascara like Mirza did, which she thinks “makes all the difference.”

You don’t have to go all out with a dramatic cat-eye flick if you want to balance out your eye makeup with a fun lip. A kitten eye like Mirza’s is perfect for this—it has a more natural look, but lifts and pulls up the eyes for a “snatched” effect. To recreate it, begin your liner in the center of your eye and then use short, thin strokes to draw along your lash line. Give it the tiniest little flick at the end.

Since your hair is covered with a dupatta during the traditional wedding pheras, an updo is a good idea. It looks neat, classic and keeps the hair off your face and neck, especially if you’re wearing bold jewellery, like a maang tikka. But to upgrade hers a little, Mirza added fresh jasmine to her tight low chignon to add a little drama.

“I'm a minimalist: For a day look, I like earth tones, and at night I go with kohl and a smudgy black eye," Mirza shared in an interview. She did exactly that for her mehandi, pairing a soft smokey eye with a light pink lip that looked great in the daytime, sunlit photos.
