Complete Makeup Kit Guide for Brides | Bridal Special

Hello, my beautiful ladies :)
I hope you all are enjoying Wedding Seasons. I personally love Weddings!! Party, Dance, Music, Food, Dresses, Laughs, Lights, Family & Friends. Such a great time to just enjoy & forget all your daily worries.
But there are a couple of people who gets the stress feeling that time like the Bride's Dad, Mom, Brothers & most importantly the Bride herself. Although this is one of the most memorable & big events still Brides go with tons of Stress. On the other hand for Brides, it's not only important to look & feel good but also stay Organized.
Telling you one truth even in my Wedding I was Stressed out. There were a lot of things which I had to take care of on my own & keeping calm at the same time was one of the difficult things. Frankly, I was just a Kid. Especially when it comes to makeup, I didn't have a single Lipstick!! hehe :)
It's 5 1/2 years now & things have changed. Nowadays Brides do make sure that they not even carry their dresses beautifully but also their makeup is unto the point.

Complete Makeup Kit Guide for Brides

Although D-Day Brides usually gets ready in Beauty Parlors but still there are many more different functions like Haldi, Mata Pooja, Sangeet, Day Functions even after Wedding, functions happening in your in-laws family. For all those functions you will need to carry a Makeup Kit.
You don't get much time to get ready & you really don't want to waste your time in figuring out what to wear or where are all my makeup products?? To avoid such type of situation you will need Bridal Makeup Kit where you have every single product at one place properly organized.

In today's post, I am going to share the Complete Guide for Bridals Makeup Kit. Here I am not only sharing what you should have in your Makeup kit but also giving you some good options for products. In this post we'll specifically talk about Makeup Products, there are other things too which you should carry in your Bridal Makeup Kit but will talk about that in some other upcoming posts. Here is the Makeup Products List which you should have in your Vanity.

1. Primer

I always had one question why Primers are so important & what actually they do?? Well, it's very important if you want a good base for your Makeup!! It makes your skin smooth, minimizes pores, locks your Foundation & that's why your Makeup stays for a longer period. There are so many Primers available in the market but my favorite is The POREfessional by Benefit cosmetics; this is the best Primer. If your skin is towards drier side then use Hydrating Primer, Becca Backlight Priming Filter is great for brides; it gives you glowing skin or in budget Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer is good. If your skin is oily then buy NYX Shine Killer. Always buy Primer according to your skin type as everyone has a different skin type.

2. Foundation

Foundation is a must in your Wedding!! If you don't like to apply much Makeup then go easy with your Foundation. You can even use BB or CC Cream instead of a foundation. But I recommend you use Foundation as there are so many wedding functions where you are going to wear heavy Sarees, Lehengas or Dresses & click a lot of photos; that's why you need a good base. If you don't like heavy foundation then just mix a few drops of your face moisturizer in it. Again choose the foundation of your skin type. Matte foundations are pretty much in trend but you can do with a dewy foundation too which provides you glow. My favorites are Estee Lauder Double Wear which gives you full coverage & matte in finish, If you want light coverage & your skin is on the drier side then go with MAC Studio Face & Body Foundation. If you are looking for Budget-friendly option Loreal Paris Infallible is the best foundation. If you are Mousse lover then go with Maybelline Dream Matte MousseLakme one is also good.

3. Concealer

Girls you need Concealer, no matter how much Brides take care of herself throughout the wedding, she gets tired which shows in her pictures later. To avoid that, use full coverage Concealers. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is the best to cover the dark circles & also blemishes. L.A.Girl Pro Conceal is again a good one & also budget-friendly.
If you have pretty bad dark circles like I do then use Corrector before Concealer. For Corrector, I like NYX Dark Circle concealer of light shade which is Peach in color.

4. Compact / Setting Powder

Go with Setting Powder as it's very important to set your Makeup specially Concealer otherwise your makeup may look cakey, with visible wrinkles & lines under your eye. If you like translucent powder then Laura Mercier Translucent Powder is the best one. But! I suggest with Compact Powder as it's easy to store in your Makeup Kit. Go with Pressed Compact like Lakme Perfect Radiance or Maybelline whitening compact; they are good ones. You can also go with Foundation Compact like MAC Studio Fix which is the best Compact; gives you good coverage & also help you to set your makeup.

5. Blush

If you want a Rosy Glow on your wedding then go with Pinks & Coral blushes. Choose your blushes according to your face color. Powder Blushes pops up more but if you need subtle color & dewy finish then go with cream blushes. Chanel & MAC have lots of good blushes also NYX has so many good blushes options. You can go with shimmery blushes too as it's wedding season but go easy with Highlighter or even skip Highlighter especially in the day time as you already have shimmer in your Blush.

6. Highlighter

To stand out your Makeup more & pop your Highlights on your skin more, especially during Night Functions use Highlighters. My favorite highlighters are Mary-Lou Manizer by Balm & Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Pop which is a golden highlighter & it looks really good at night time. As far as Budget-friendly options, Makeup Revolution Highlighters are good & very pigmented.

7. Bronzer & Contouring (Optional)

Hoola Bronzer by Benefit is the best one, it does not look muddy, is in Powder form & defines your face shape. I don't think so that you really need to Contour your face on daily events as you will already apply Blush, Highlighter & Bronzer but if you love Deep Contouring then I have to give you an option. :) Maybelline V shape Duo Stick is a good one that is creamy in texture, easy to use & budget-friendly too. But remember if you are applying Dark Blush & Highlighter then go easy with Bronzer.

TIP: Instead of going with separate Blush, Bronzer or Highlighter, go with a Palette which has all these three. Makeup Revolution has so many palettes to choose from. Also, Maybelline has all three things in a small palette.

8. Eye Shadow Primer

Eye Shadow Primer is a must when it comes to long-lasting Eye Makeup but if you don't want to buy Eye Shadow Primer then you can use Concealer on your Eye Lid but make sure to set it with Powder. Frankly! It is a good idea to invest in Eye Shadow Primer, they last you very long as you need only a small portion every time!! Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion or MAC Prep+Prime Eye Base is the best one. In the Budget, you can go with NYX.

9. Eye Shadows

You can use single Eye Shadow if you are going with specific colors & love collection single shadows. MAC & NYX have great single Eye Shadows. Don't forget to buy Pink & Burgundy shades as they are very useful shades for Brides, also add Bronzes & Golds shades. However, if you buy Palettes you will get more color options. If you like light pinky girly makeup then go with Lancome & Urban Decay Naked 3, it has so many soft rosy colors. For Budget-Friendly Options go with Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette which is a dupe of Naked 3 but little poorer pigmented. If you love neutrals or gold, shimmer colors go with Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. For bright colors go with NYX Palettes, also Makeup Revolution has good options for Eye Shadow palettes which are dupes of high-end brands & quality wise also good. In small palettes go with Lakme, Maybelline & L'oreal ones.

10. Kohl Pencil

Kajal is one of the important parts of Indian Bridal makeup. Indian makeup is incomplete without Kajal. Go with Waterproof & Smudge-proof Kajal Pencil because you don't want to look like a Zombie at the end of the day. Lakme & Maybelline have good Kajal Pencils. Have a nude shade eyeliner pencil too for day time functions if you want to make your eyes more awakening. Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Nude is my favorite. I hardly apply Black kajal that's why I usually go with this Nude shade & apply tons of Mascara.

11. Eye Liners

Felt Liquid Eye Liners are easy to use & my favorites are Stila Stay All Day WaterProof Liquid EyeLiner and Superhero Liner by IT Cosmetics. If you want your liner to be very long-lasting then go with Gel Liners, they stay all day long. I really like the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear & Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner. If you want to stand out your night makeup more you can use the glitter liners too like the NYX Liquid Crystal Liner.

12. Mascara

Beautiful Lashes are a must!! Choose Mascara which is waterproof & also should give you tons of volume. Estee LauderBenefit & Maybelline are my favorite brand when it comes to Mascara. Also, buy an Eye Lash Curler; this will help to keep your lashes curl for a longer period. Nowadays girls like to apply false lashes too but I don't recommend doing it on every day basis as there should be little difference between your D-Day Makeup & the other functions makeup.

13. Eye Brow Kit

Eye Brows are the most important feature of our face. So don't forget to buy an Eye Brow Kit or Eye Brow Pencil. I personally love Eye Brow Kit as you can control more whether you want thick shape or a soft one. My personal favorites are Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in the shade Granite for night looks & Rimmel London Brow This Way in Medium Brown for day looks. For Brow, Pencils Benefit is one of the best.

14. Lip Liners

If you have pigmented lips or having discoloration on your lips then before applying Lipstick use Lip Liner. This helps to even out your lips & also makes your lipstick long-lasting. For discoloration use Natural Lip Liner & to intensify your lipstick shade go with the same shade in lip liner. My favorite is NYX & Lakme Lip Liners; don't forget to buy in Reds, Pinks & Nude shades.

15. Lipsticks

Lipstick is the heart of our Makeup. If you want to buy only a single makeup product then go with Lipstick. No matter how good your makeup is if your lipstick is not good then your face looks so dull. Red, Pink, Plump shades are must!! These shades go with every outfit & also give you a festive look.

Matte Lipstick

I love Matte Lipsticks as they are highly pigments & long-lasting. My favorites brands are MAC, Maybelline & Wet n Wild. Here are a few options which you can have in your kit. These colors go with heavy to light outfits & also stand out your makeup. In MAC; Ruby Woo, Relentlessly Red, Diva, Lady Danger & Russian Red are my favorites. In Maybelline go with Rich Ruby & All Fired Up. Maybelline Color Blur Cream Matte Pencil is having great shades too like My My Magenta & Cherry Cherry Bang Bang.

Matte Liquid Lipstick

Apart from Matte Lipstick, I like Matte Liquid Lipstick as they are more long-lasting & also transfer-proof. Just imagine you are having your Dinner with so many people & suddenly your Lipstick sticks all over the food & glass, it will look so bad. To avoid that go with Liquid Lipstick but make sure they are not very drying otherwise your lips will look so cracky & dehydrated. My favorite is Revlon Ultra HD Matte Color; shades Intensity, Romance & Amour. In Stila Stay All Day go with shade Beso & Bella. Also, NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the shade Cherry Skies is pretty good.

Lip Gloss

If you really love gloss then buy a transparent color that you can apply on any lipstick. Or go with shimmery lip gloss like Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy. Just apply on center on your lips & it will give you fuller lips. Lip glosses are not pigmented & in your wedding, you need to stand out your lip color. But if you really love lip glosses & don't like to apply lipstick then I have few options which are not only highly pigmented but also glossy; they are Revlon Colorstay Overtime in the shade All Night Fuchsia, Non-Stop Cherry & Forever Scarlet. Girls! these are lip savers; they are very pigmented, transfer-proof & stay all day long. Absolutely love these lip colors.

Satin Lipstick

Lastly, if you don't like any of those then you can go with the basic normal satin creamy lipstick but choose those which are pigmented like MAC, Maybelline & Revlon.

16. Setting Spray

With lots of functions, lights, photos & dancing, there are chances that you will get sweat or your makeup starts getting melt. That's why it's extremely important to set your makeup with Setting Spray. This will lock your makeup for a longer period. My absolute favorite is MAC Fixing Spray & Urban Decay Makeup Lockdown Spray.

17. Makeup Brushes & Blenders

You cannot do your makeup without brushes :) Don't carry so many makeup brushes in your kit otherwise you will get confused & it takes so much time to decide which one to use or not to use. There are few brushes which you need to carry; have Big Powder Brush, Blush Brush, Fan Brush, Contour Brush, Lip Brush, Brow Brush, Eye Liner Brush, Concealer Brush, Eyeshadow Lid Brush, Eyeshadow Blending Brush, Kabuki Brush. These are the most important brushes. Apart from that buy Beauty Blender or Real Technique Sponge they will give you a flawless base, you can even use foundation brush but I personally love Beauty Blender.

Hacks for Brides -

If you don't want to buy so many products then here is the tip for you people which can save your money & space too.
Instead of going with a lot of makeup products like Blushes, Eyeshadow Palette go with full face palette like NYX Beauty School Dropout. Here you will get so many eye shadows in different colors from dark to neutral & also you will get blush, bronzer, highlighters too. This saves your space a lot.
Same for Lipsticks, instead of taking so many lipsticks to go with Lip Palette like NYX The Red Palette which has all the shades of red or like L'oreal Pink lipstick palette.
These palettes are multi-purpose & also saves a lot of space in your kit.

18. Nail Polish

Don't forget to carry 2-3 Nail Polishes in Red, Pink & Maroon shade, as your hands & feet both will equally look beautiful. The red shade will go with most of the outfits. Buy a good quality one so it will last you long as you won't get much time to do your Nails frequently.

19. Sindoor

You are getting married, without Sindoor your marriage look is incomplete. Apart from regular Sindoor buy a liquid or stick Sindoor which should be water-resistant.

There are few more things which you should carry in your Makeup Kit, like:-
  • Bindi
  • Makeup Remover
  • Wipes
  • Tissues
  • Nail Remover
  • Safety Pins
  • Small Mirror
