60s & 70s Inspired Indian/Bollywood bridal makeup

Recently, I have become very interested in tracing the Indian makeup trends through the different eras and thought I should start from the 1960s/70s. 1960s and 1970s were the era of colours for both Bollywood and Kollywood (Tamil) movies. Black & white movies were facing out. This was the era where makeup was kept simple, classy and doll like . I have great memories from my childhood watching old classic tamil movies with my maternal grandmother. Then, as a child, I didn't really appreciate the beauty of the actresses. 

All my tutorials on Youtube are planned and I usually do my research before making the videos. Did a simple search on Youtube and found that there wasn't many videos dedicated to the makeup trends of this era (in terms of Indian bridal makeup of course). I made this tutorial based on the pictures I have seen of the old actresses thus I can't ensure that this was how makeup was done then. However, it is quite close to the classic Indian beauties of the 60s/70s. As always, I have made sure that this look was suitable & wearable in the current times.





Here are the Tamil/Hindi actresses who are the inspiration for this look.

  3. I love vintage Bollywood looks. They're so simple yet they bring out the natural features of the face. Especially with the thick eyeliner look!
