Do you want to look like a million bucks on your D-Day? Well of course you do. But to achieve that flawless look you need to upgrade your makeup vanity case. We have compiled the list of makeup must haves for the brides who want to achieve that flawless, airbrushed look on their wedding day and the functions to follow.
Moisturizer- Being a bride to be, all you want to look is fabulous and gorgeous, and not dry and flaky. The first product that every bride must include in her vanity case is a moisturizer that suits your skin type. The skin on our face is thinner than the skin on the rest of our body hence it is important to keep it protected from the outside environment. Regular wear and tear and washing of our skin leaves it dull and dry. To replenish this moisture it is very important for you to use a moisturizer meant for your skin type, even if your skin is oily.

Primer- On your special day and the functions that follow, you want to look your best. But we all are well aware that these functions are pretty long duration ones and involve a lot of activities, dance, clicking pictures and so much more. But in all this festivity and celebration you definitely don’t want your makeup to wear off or melt off your face. To save yourself the horror make sure to use a good quality oil control primer beneath your makeup. It might be just an extra step but can make a huge difference in the way your makeup look and also increases the longevity of it.

Foundation- The foundation of a good makeup is ‘foundation’. Foundation is one of the most important step of makeup after primer. In order to make the rest of your makeup to look flawless you need a clean base to start with. Don’t shy away from spending a little extra while purchasing a foundation. Also buy a foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly. You can also buy a foundation that is a shade darker but never ever end up buying a shade that is lighter than your skin tone. You might end up looking like a ghost otherwise. Foundations that contain shimmer particles are also a big no-no.

Concealer- Wedding is one of the most memorable experience of one’s life but there is no denying that they are also the most stressful events. Late night functions, too much exhaustion and not getting abundant amount of sleep can make you look like a panda (you may get dark circles). Though foundation may give you an even skin tone to start your makeup with, but concealer covers all the spots, blemishes and dark circles that can cannot be covered by the foundation. So invest your money in a full coverage concealer that matches your skin tone.

Lipstick- Every girl loves her lipsticks and the ones that her friends own. Include all type of colours and finishes in your lipstick kitty. Pinks, reds, nudes, mauves and whatever you may like. Make sure to swatch them before buying. And don’t swatch them on your hand, you will never get an idea of how that shade would look on your lips. Instead try the lipstick on your lips or on your finger tips to get a better idea. Also include a clear lip gloss in your bridal trousseau to turn and matte lipstick in a glossy one. Buy a few everyday shades and one that matches or compliments your wedding dress.

Keep in mind your complexion while picking a blush. The best way to choose the right blush shade is to but a shade that is almost similar to your natural blush.
