Karan Johar’s upcoming big release Ae Dil hai Mushkil starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan has been surrounded by a lot of controversies. But even as the release date of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is not clear, people are looking forward to this beautiful project by Karan Johar. The movie has managed to impress everyone be it the teaser, trailer or all the beautiful songs. It goes without saying that both the leading actresses Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma are looking strikingly beautiful. Especially Anushka who has taken us by surprise with her never-seen-before bridal look.
The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress stunned us with her quirky ways in the trailer and then enchanted us once again with her breathtaking bridal look in the ADHM song Channa Mereya. Flaunting her best looks, Anushka is giving all the brides-to-be some serious goals for their wedding look. So if you are wondering, how did Anushka manage to pull off the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil bridal look, we will help you decode the exact look so that you can go ahead and try out this pretty look on your special day.
1. Flawless skin
One thing that you will notice is that Anushka is flaunting a flawless skin in this bridal look. You will have to take care and pamper your skin to make. Make sure that you cleanse, moisturise and tone your skin avoiding the eye and mouth areas. If you are ready to experiment with long wear makeup, also make it a point to clean your face with a make-up remover and use a toner afterwards.
2. Makeup base
You need to have a perfect makeup base before you go on about perfecting this bridal look. Choose a makeup base as per your skin type; dry skin, oily skin or combination skin. Apply foundation, concealer, highlighter and blush to match your skin tone and undertone. But make sure you don’t over do any of these steps.
3. Heavy eye makeup
To get the perfect almond eyes just like Anushka Sharma, use a brown base to create the smokey eyed look. You will have to use the brown cream based or powder based eyeshadow all over the lid and follow this by adding a gold shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corners. Use ample amount of black gel eyeliner to line your eyes in a beautiful graphic fish shape. Don’t leave any space and fill in the waterline with a kohl pencil. If you want a more dark look, make sure you doll up mascara to make your eyelashes look thicker and longer.
4. Heavy makeup balanced with nude look
If you notice Anushka’s bridal look, you will notice that the actress has focused more on the eyes to bring out her perfect features. So naturally when the eyes have been highlighted, the rest of the look has been kept minimal when it comes to makeup. Use a nude or peach lipstick to balance out with the heavy eye makeup. You can add a pout by applying a coat of transparent gloss over your nude or peach lipstick.
5. Heavy traditional ensemble
We fell in love with the traditional red and golden Lehenga Anushka chose to wear for the bridal look. The embellished ensemble looks rich with the heavy design work on the top and intricately beautiful design on the Dupatta and the head veil. You can step-by-step decode the whole outfit and get it tailored made for your special day!
6. Exquisite Jewelry
The Indian traditional bridal look is usually accessorised with a Mang Tika, heavy necklace, statement earrings and bangles. But Anushka is wearing Pakistani-style Jhumar Tika on the side of her hairline. Stone and emerald necklace, with matching dangling earrings and also a nose ring chain.

Grab your hair and try for the ultimate loose bun which will make you feel comfortable by keeping all you hair away from your face. Since the whole outfit and makeup is heavy, don’t try for a complicated hair-do. A braided or simple bun, with a few strands let loose will make you look effortlessly chic.
