The Best Beauty Products for your Bridal Vanity Box
Your wedding is the best excuse to splurge on a ton of vanity shopping. All that makeup that you have longed to own or been skeptical about, well, this is the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy a whole bunch of new beauty merchandize.
This post will help you pick up the right makeup while you're at it...
For a Flawless Complexion
A Concealer that matches your skin perfectly is your best friend to create a flawless complexion without wearing layers and layers of makeup. MAC Studio Finish Concealer does the job perfectly. The high coverage formula hides imperfections without using too much product and you are most likely to find the perfect match to your skin from the massive collection of shades that MAC has. Just dab a little bit of product on your problem areas, set it with powder, and you are good to go. This is my absolute holy grail for under eye circles.
At 1300 bucks a pop, the 7g pot of concealer should last you a while proving to be a superb investment.
If you get the concealer right, you could give the foundation a pass and go with the more new age trend of BB creams. They help you achieve a more even toned complexion and are a lot easier to work with as compared to foundations.
Friendlier on the pocket, BB creams are easier to apply and combine the goodness of a foundation, a moisturizer, a sunscreen and a primer. Go with the Body Shop All-in-one BB cream (Rs. 1395/- for 25mL) or the Clinique Age Defense BB cream (Rs. 1900/- for 40 mL)
If you are wondering what you should really splurge on when it comes to makeup, then get the ONE ultimate lipstick or lip gloss that looks like the dream on you. One fabulous lip product is far better than a ton of lip products that sit on your vanity unused for months. Consider giving the following favorites a try.
YSL Rouge Volupte, MAC (always a hit!) and Max factor are some of the finest lipsticks I’ve used.
For lip glosses, try the Clinique Long Last Glosswear for a shimmery finish or the Revlon ColorBurst lip-gloss for a more matte finish.
Bump Them Lashes
Mascara - It can instantly make you look more alive by making your eyes look more open and bigger. If I could use only one eye makeup product, it would most definitely be mascara.
A good lengthening and volumizing formulation followed by an eyelash curler can you glam you up in a matter of seconds.
My favorites are the Lancome Hypnose (Rs. 1550/-) and the Maxfactor False Lash Effect.
For The Gorgeous Eyes
Looking for a great quality eye shadow palette with the most wearable shades for the Indian skin? Urban Decay’s NAKED Palette is now available in India on Beautybay.com
Rs. 3088/- for 12 high quality shades that come with primer potion that prevents your makeup from creasing.
Get them Tools
For an absolute professional finish for your makeup, you must make sure to get high quality brushes.
The best thing about the otherwise awfully expensive MAC brushes is the fact that they come out with the MAC SE (Special Edition) Brushes every now and then. These are the holiday kits, which are smaller, fancier, and the best bargain ever! For anything between Rs. 4000-4500, you could get yourself 4-5 brushes that could take care of all your makeup application needs.
