Bridal Makeup Kit

Hello Everyone !! So howz your new year resolutions going so far šŸ™‚ Hope you all will keep them up !!

Today I will be sharing an essential list for brides to be … Although there are tons of things when it comes to makeup kit but if we talk about what exactly the need of a newly wedded women in terms of makeup essential , This all you need mentioned in the list.


Primer is the most underrated makeup item . Its a magic potion for any makeup lover I guess . It smooths out and prep your skin for makeup base/foundation.Ā It creates a perfect canvas that makes makeup look better and last longer.

My picks –

  • Colorbar Perfect Match Primer.
  • L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Primer.
  • Clinique Face Primers.
  • NYX primers


We all know about foundations .It instantly hides any imperfection / blemishes and your face become ready for more colors. Always try on foundations personally on face (hand swatch-ing is strictly prohibited ) in stores and opt for one shade lighter than your actual shade.

Mac , kryolan ,Ā Clinique Superbalanced Makeup Foundation ,The body shop , Maybelline and Lakme has some good choices.


Every bride needs blushers . I am personally big fan of blushes. Again try on which shades gives you perfect blushing cheeks and invest wisely. You can also experiment with blush palettes available in market.

My picks –Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush , Faces Glam on Perfect Blush ,Lakme Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick ,NYX High Definition Blush . MUA has some cool palettes.

Eye Shadow –Ā Bridal Makeup Kit

One should opt for a Eyeshadow palette with vibrant colors meant for party if you are a hefty user. You can also try mono shades having golden , pink , soft browns.

My favorites palettes are from Makeup revolution , Freedom Pro and Lakme quadruplets.

Mascara /Eyeliner /Kajal -Bridal Makeup Kit

Although these are different products , I simply combined them to tell the glory of eye makeup. If you are soon to be a bride you must have good quality mascara , eyeliners and kajal or kohls in your vanity. Now a days colored liners are in fashion .You should also have a eyebrow pencil because a well defined brow is all needed to complete the eye look. There are enormous varieties available in market and here are few brand recommendations from my sideĀ –

Maybelline New york , Lakme Iconic , Sugar cosmeticsĀ 

Compact / Loose powder /Face powder

These are again popular makeup products which are must have in your bridal vanity. Choose the shades wisely for your skin tone .. I usually use one shade lighter from my actual shade . If you have oily skin choose one with mattifying effects.

Again MAC , Kryolan , Lakme and Maybelline have some good picks.

Lipsticks/Lip gloss /Lip cream

Lip colors need no introduction .bridal vanity is incomplete without red and fushia lipsticks .. what say!! There are thousand of brands with infinite shade and variety selection . I suggest you to invest wisely in max 10-12 lip colors having reds , fushia ,pinks ,mauves , peach and browns.

Nail polish

Bridal vanity should have at least 20+ good colors if you are planning to match your nail polish with every dress you wear. Or you can simply opt for few good quality nail polishes with red , maroon ,golden , pink , and some shimmery shades .

Maybelline color show and lakme is my favourite – very good quality and easy on pockets . If you want to go a little higher you can try china glaze (i have single nail paint from china glaze which is intact from 5 years :D),colorbar , LYN and OPI.

So these are the basic makeup needs..

In addition , you can also invest in –

  • Contouring Palettes Ā – Now a days contouring is totally in. With few practice strokes you can master contouring (I am still learning though)
  • Illuminators – Ā Illuminators are like fellow friends of concealers and foundations .If you are into dewy give them a try.Ā NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator , Miss claire illuminator ,Ā Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator are few recommendations.
  • Good quality makeup brushes and sponges.
  • BB and CC creams – must have in your vanity for daily use.
  • Makeup removers – There are many available from Maybelline , lakme , or you can try using pure coconut oil for cleansing your makeup effectively.
  • Sindoor – Along with original Kumkum , you will need one liquid sindoor . you can checkĀ Best sindoor available in India

Wet wipes , Lip balm , Nail polish remover , bobby pins , safety pins , clutchers , hair bows are some more extra things u should have in your vanity .

Apart from makeup , Every bride should take care of their skin . I have recently switched to no chemical skincare regime . Currently usingĀ  organic handmade soaps andĀ  organic body butters and seen a lot of difference .

    I’ve been looking for bridal makeup tips. Finally, I saw your blog post. Thanks for sharing everything with us. I love that you have included nail polish in your tips. Makeup without the right nail polish color is incomplete. Nail polish should always come with makeup. I love Maybelline too. Great tips! By the way, what do you think is the best color of nail polish to wear on a bridal event?

      Nail color will totally depend on your dress color. For indian brides mostly we pick deep red , pinks and golden . Its always better to pick bright colors for your wedding dress šŸ™‚
