Most brides have various social events and functions to attend post the wedding. Brides-to-be are eager to learn about how to follow a regime for healthy skin and which skin care and makeup products to use. With the easy availability of some fabulous makeup products, applying Makeup can be easier and fun too. Priya Kapur, a Mumbai based Makeup Artist and author of the book ‘Bridal Diaries’ has put together 15 best beauty buys for your beauty box.
1) Mac Fix+
Dewy skin can be tricky to get right. Luckily all you need is Mac’s Fix+ spritz. Apply after your base for a lovely glowing finish that won’t go anywhere.
2) Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Cream Shadow
Whether for a hint of definition or to make a style statement, nothing makes more impact than a smoky black eye liner. I recommend Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Cream Shadow in Antique Gold
3) L’Oréal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in Bronze Goddess
A fingerprint of gold shadow over the eyelid is the party equivalent to your everyday nude taupe. Try L’Oréal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in Bronze Goddess.
4) Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Devil
Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Devil is my top pick for a classic red. This orange-y red, moisturizing lip color is ultra bright and is the perfect transition shade from summer to fall.
5) Mac Tinted Lipglass
It may seem complicated to do a red lip, but it’s a fast make-up look because the face needs very little else to keep it looking fresh and modern.
6) Clarins Rouge Prodige in Tender Rose
If you’re going for the smoky, sultry eye, team simply with a beautiful nude lip. My pick is Clarins Rouge Prodige in Tender Rose
7) Lancôme Effet Miracle Primer
You want to look like you’ve made an effort, but you don’t want to spend your evening checking your reflection. Lancôme Effet Miracle Primer, smoothes and primes skin and helps foundation to stay in place.
8) Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Primer
Give your eye shadow serious staying power by priming the eyes first, using Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray Primer.
9) Rouge Dior Lipstick in Nocturne
If you want a classic, pillar box red lip, use Rouge Dior Lipstick in Nocturne. This lipstick is set apart from typical lipstick colors by the infusion of gold shimmer. The formula is designed to be moisturizing, long-wearing, and comfortable to wear.
10) Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion
The mega volumising brush and ultimate length formula have fused together to deliver incredible lash glamour. Take the Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion mascara and rub the wand back and forth into the roots from underneath the lashes so they’re well coated.
11) L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in Peach Pleasure (912)
Balm and gloss finally combine in a playful crayon format for mirror-free application. Lips feel moisturised, look shiny, with a sheer fresh looking colour pay off.
12) MAC All That Glitters eye shadow
The application of this highly-pigmented powder is even and it blends well. It is a good colour for a one eye shadow simple look for everyday or it can be used as a highlighter on the top of the cheekbones.
13) L’Oreal Paris True Match Skin Idealizing BB cream
It is the brand’s newest BB Cream in 3 shades. L’Oreal takes on the typical beauty balm formula that multitasks as a foundation and skincare all in one with True Match BB cream.
14) L’Oreal Color Riche Natural Lipstick in Velvet Rose
Riche Velvet Rose is a nude lipstick with a pink tone to it. The creamy formula looks very natural and doesn’t look like concealer or foundation on the lips nor does it disappear like a tinted lip balm.
15) MAC Fluidline Gel Eyeliner
This ultra-smooth gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier and softer finish. It glides on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge proof. This smudge-proof and long-wear eyeliner is available in a rich array of colours and finishes.
