Indian Bridal Makeup – Must Have products
Building a trousseau can be very stressful for brides-to-be especially when there are too many rituals, planning outfits, deciding on the makeup etc. But when you have a handy makeup kit, you can dress for any occasion and outfit. Here I have listed a few must haves in your makeup kit that you need to buy just before your wedding.
- Makeup Remover
You will be wearing makeup on and off multiple times, and all the stress and sleeplessness due to the wedding will be taking a toll on your skin. Hence always have a bottle of makeup remover so that even if you do not want to wash your face, you can simply wipe off makeup using a makeup remover.
Some of my suggestions are Bioderma Sensibio H2O, Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Makeup Remover, Maybelline New York Clean Express Total Clean Makeup Remover.
Based on your skin tone and skin type choose the right foundation for your skin. Do not get convinced by the color given to you be the SA. Try it yourself and buy only if it pleases you.
Here are some of my suggestions of high coverage foundations for brides-to-be Loreal Paris Infalliable 24H Foundation, Maybelline New York Fit me Matte + Poreless Foundation, Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup.
You can always choose to wear only foundation or concealer (to cover blemishes) + compact/loose powder. It all gives the same effect. I always choose to conceal and then use a compact when I run out of time to blend foundations.
Some of my suggestions for concealers are L.A Girl Pro Conceal HD, Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer, NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Pencil.
Compacts come in handy when you want to do touch ups and also for small parties where you do not want to look too much made up.
Some of my suggestions are Loreal Paris Mat Magiq All-In-One Pressed Powder, Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte+Poreless Powder, Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact.
A kajal is every Indian girl’s best friend. No Indian wedding look is complete without a kajal.
Some of my suggestions for kajal are Maybelline New York The Colossal Kajal 24H Smudgeproof Deep Black, Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black, Lakme Eyeconic Kajal.
Winged eyeliners are so much in trend right now. And most Indian brides seem to be fauting their wedding look with a winged eye liner. It is wise to choose waterproof eye makeup for weddings not just because you maight cry a lot but also to avoid smudging eye makeup due to sweat.
Some of my suggestions for eyeliners are Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eyeliner (available in 5 shades such as black, grey, sparkling olive, shimmer bronze and liquid gold), Maybelline New York The Colossal Liner, Colobar Precision Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.
If you choose to wear falsies or not, mascara enhances the entire look. Always go for waterproof ones especially when it comes to mascara.
Some of my suggestions for waterproof mascara are Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara, Nyx Professional Makeup Doll Eye Mascara, Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara.
No bridal makeup is complete without an eye shadow. It is always wise to choose a eyeshadow palette which has all neutral colors, few shimmers and matte shadows.
Some of my suggestions for eye shadow are Maybelline New York The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshine, Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette.
There is a huge variety of Matte, Metallic, Liquid and cream lipsticks available in the market these days. And brides do not just have to wear the regular red lipstick. These days there are a variety of options and styles like ombre lips where you can choose and flaunt at your wedding.
Some of my recommendations for lipsticks are
Red : MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Ruby Woo, Colorbar Velvette Matte Lipstick – 58 Bare, Loreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipstick – Pure Rouge.
Pinks : Lakme Absolute Sculpt Matte Lipstick – Le Fuscia, Faces Ultra Moist Lipstick In Magenta, Nyx Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick – Pink Lust.
And thats the end of the list.There are a few more essentials which you will need during your wedding which I will draft in another post.
This is not the entire list. I have tried to curate certain most used products during a wedding. You may choose to add or avoid certain products. I hope this post was useful.
