10 Bridal makeup trousseau essentials

Wedding season is here, if you are a bride to be bridal makeup trousseau is definitely on your list, we have two weddings in our family this year and i am full on in the wedding prep mode. Yesterday i was finalizing makeup with the two brides, we thought of essentials as well as items that will help the brides do their makeup for the pre and post wedding functions. Since indian weddings are so opulent we decided its best to book a professional hair and makeup artist for the wedding day and bigger functions like mehndi, etc and for the small get togethers do it yourself. After deciding on the must haves with the brides i thought its a great idea for a post so today i am sharing the items you must ensure in your bridal makeup trousseau.

A good skincare routine (day and night) for healthy, glowing skin is the mantra for every bride to be. While there is no replacement for this, sometimes we take the help of makeup to further accentuate our features. And to do this we need the right products and a go to makeup it. So what exactly should this kit contain? Here is the scoop :
1. Foundation – Base is everything, so make sure the foundation you pick matches your natural skintone. Maybelline Fit Me, L’oreal 24H matte and MAC studio fix are some of the best ones in the Indian market. MAC is running an awesome sale these days, go checkout them in your nearby store. 
2. Concealer – If you have dark circles or blemishes you need to conceal, fret not. A good concealer that is lightweight and long lasting will do the trick. Maybelline age rewind, NARS radiant creamy and Bobbi Brown have a pretty good shade range.
3. Powder – A good habit to follow is to set your base with powder. For this purpose you can use L’oreal Mat magique compact or Clinique loose powder. 
4. Eyeshadow – Palettes from Maybelline (The Nudes) and Makeup Revolution are super versatile and enable you to create a lot of different eye makeup looks. If you prefer singles, check out MAC All that glitters, Expensive pink, Coppering and Bronzed.
5. Eyeliner – Lakme Eyeconic and Maybelline colossal eyeliners have been crowd favourites for a while now and are still going strong. They’re easily available, pocket friendly and smooth to apply. Black, brown, green or blue – pick whichever strikes your fancy.
6. Lipstick – Every makeup kit should have atleast one nude, one MLBB (my lips but better) shade and one bright pink / red. Apart from these, you can add in more according to your skintone like corals, deeper maroons, pinkish browns etc. MAC has a lot of pretty hues like Mocha, Relentlessly Red, Mehr and Party Parrot. Huda Beauty has a wonderful line of liquid mattes – our favourite is Heartbreaker. 
7. Blush – For a very subtle and natural flush on your cheeks, we recommend a lip and cheek stain. Benefit cosmetics Benetint (Luxe category) and Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse lip and cheek colour (Affordable category) are perfect for this.
8. Setting spray – The magic ingredient that ensures your makeup stays in place without budging or smudging for a longer duration of time. Our favourite is the MAC Fix + but if you have people coming from abroad you could ask them to get Urban decay or Makeup Forever fixing spray for you. 
9. Brushes / Makeup sponge – The tools of the trade. If you prefer using brushes, look at ones from MAC and Sigma Beauty. For sponges, the most popular choice is the Beauty Blender which is now available online in India at Nykaa. 
10. Makeup Remover – We’ve listed this at the end but it is the most essential part of every makeup kit. A variety of options are available out there so pick one that suits your skin. Makeup removing wipes from Clinique or The Body Shop, Micellar waters from Bioderma or L’oreal and Oil free remover from Maybelline are quite effective.

With the bridal makeup trousseau jotted i also suggest looking for Bridal Makeup and Hair photos for ideas on makeup looks and having a one to one session with your makeup artist before the event. 

Hope this post was helpful, thank you for stopping by, see you with my next.
