The focus during weddings is always on the big day, but the events leading up to it are equally important. In India, weddings are never a one-day affair. Roka, engagement, haldi, mehndi, sangeet, reception… phew! Imagine getting ready every single day for each one of them with a ton of eye makeup products — what a task!

This palette contains 12 highly pigmented shades that are a perfect mix of intense mattes and stunning shimmers that come in a velvety texture that is super smooth and easy to blend.

A simple two-toned shimmer eyelid is easy to create and perfect for one of your pre-wedding events. Pick two different coloured shimmer eyeshadows from the palette, a combination of the shades Syrah and Dirty will look stunning. They are easy to blend and don’t require expert level skills to get the perfect look. Swipe the former shade close to your lash line and the latter on top, blending all the way up to the brows.
