You don’t realise how long your to-do list can get until you actually start with your wedding planning. There are a zillion things to check off your list like booking your makeup artist, preparing the guest list and shopping till you drop (and no, it isn’t as much fun after the first two exhausting sprees).
One of these tedious wedding tasks is putting together a bridal makeup kit to use in the run up to your wedding. Since you already have a lot on your plate, let us help you with 10 must-have makeup products every bride needs to have in her makeup kit.
Since you have to put your best face forward for all the wedding ceremonies, a lightweight foundation is a must. Keep a mousse foundation in your kit that blends easily and gives you a flawless base makeup.
You don’t want your dark circles (that you probably earned from all that late-night wedding planning) to show on your face on D-day. Pack a concealer to hide blemishes and dark circles and make everyone believe you got your beauty sleep.
A blushing bride can’t do without a blusher in her kitty, especially on the big day. Brighten up your look with a light flush on your cheeks and look naturally gorgeous and fresh at all times.

Instead of stashing different eye makeup products, get the multipurpose gel liner that works both as a kajal and a liner. Plus, it can give you both, a stunning smokey eye or a soft wing, whatever look you are going for.

Different wedding functions call for different makeup looks. Get an all-in-one eyeshadow palette that has shades ranging from dreamy pastels to nudes and vibrant hues.
Whether or not you are wearing falsies, keep mascara in your makeup kit to amp up your lashes. Remember to pick one that is waterproof and doesn’t smudge throughout the event.
Don’t think about skipping the lip liner. It will keep your lipstick from bleeding and make it last all day long. Choose a long-stay one that defines your lips beautifully.

It’s a no brainer that your bridal makeup kit needs a glamorous lip colour. Get a lipstick that is long-lasting and doesn’t budge. A matte finish is your best bet as it will have an intense colour payoff and give you a picture-perfect pout.

Pack a setting or compact powder to lock in your makeup, mattify your look and ensure a smooth finish. Also, keep it handy for quick touch-ups between the events.
