The wedding wave has really hit India this year and if you’re a woman in your 20s or 30s, chances are that you are attending a lot of your friends’ and cousins’ weddings. If you too are playing bridesmaid this wedding season, we understand how busy your schedule must be.

While you carry on with your bridesmaid duties of approving the makeup looks, go to outfit fittings and planning the craziest bachelorette, we’ve put down a checklist for you, so you can be a stunning and well-organized bridesmaid...

Pick ‘the’ look
 

Pick ‘the’ look

Indian weddings offer ample opportunities for you to doll up and flaunt your desi girl side. Picking a different look for every ceremony like haldi, mehendi and reception can be daunting. Take some time and search for makeup looks and colour scheme that would suit you. Remember you don’t want to outshine the bride nor you wanna look too simple. You can refer to these cool, trendy makeup looks.

Schedule a trial run
 

Schedule a trial run

We highly recommend a makeup and hairstyle trial before the D-Day. It might cost you but it’s worth it. It will save you from making last minute changes in your look. Also, you can be sure of the makeup artist, products, shades and the complete look and be stress free on the big day.

Makeup that won’t budge
 

Makeup that won’t budge

There’ll be a lot of happy tears shedding every once in a while but don’t let your makeup (and your pictures) pay the price for it. Use only waterproof and smudge-proof makeup for your eyes. We suggest Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal and Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara.

The touch-up kit
 

The touch-up kit

While you pack a beauty kit for the bride, don’t forget one for yourself. Stash some oil-blotting paper, tissues and cotton buds in your clutch for any makeup blunder and build-up. Carry the lipstick you’re wearing or lip gloss of similar shade and loose powder for quick touch-ups.
