Say I Do To These: Makeup Experts Tell Us Beauty Products To Add To A Bride-To-Be’s Kit


It’s officially that time of the year when most of us are waking up to cheesy engagement photoshoots; I have already seen three and it’s just twelve minutes past noon. Our point is, we take weddings quite seriously especially if you are on bridesmaid duty. Brides have a massive to-do list and their doting bridesmaids are right by their side whilst they tick off this list. An integral part of this list is ensuring that the bride has her bridal beauty kit in place. As her confidante, this responsibility is yours.

Shradha Luthra, Celebrity Makeup and Hair Artist gives us a little insight into the mind of a modern Indian bride and says, “When it comes to beauty gifting, personalisation is key! You need to do your due diligence by conducting enough research about the products and making sure that you’re playing it safe by opting for products the bride already enjoys using!”

Shradha gives us a lowdown on all the beauty products one must add to brides-to-be wedding-special kit!

Foundation – Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Hollywood Filter

Being an excellent hybrid between a foundation and an illuminator, the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter is a good buy for its natural finish. 

Pro Tip by Shradha: It sits comfortably on the skin and gives a beautiful glow while effortlessly evening out the skin tone at the same time.

Mascara – Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara

As one of the best products in this segment, the Benefit Cosmetic Roller Lash Mascara is a great mascara that helps add volume to the eyelashes. It lengthens and thickens the lashes without making them look clumpy.

Pro Tip by Shradha: Most importantly, it does not bleed throughout the day. Something that needs to be factored in when you’re all set for your big day.

This particular eyeshadow palette by Huda Beauty is probably the most versatile one in her collection and offers different finishes – from matte, metallic, and shimmery shades, all in hues of pink.

Pro Tip by Shradha: Deeper pigment, smooth texture and seamless blending make it a must-have eyeshadow palette.

Blush – Givenchy Prisme Libre Blush

This Givenchy blush has a unique formula. It’s a powder blush and feels absolutely luxurious on the skin. It has four shades in one pot that blend with each other to offer a healthy pop of colour and a soft finish.

Pro Tip by Shradha: Why it’s a must-have for a bride? It stays put for hours!

Highlighter – Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand

The liquid formula of the cult favourite Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand is perfect for a dewy, sun-kissed look with a pop of colour. It offers a natural finish with a dash of glow. The shades range from cute corals to peachy pinks, which look surreal on the Indian bride.

Pro Tip by Shradha: All you need is a few dabs on your cheek for the ultimate glow.
