My Indian Bridal Wear: Sneak Peek

Here's a sneak peek of what I wore on my our Indian wedding day in 2007. Years ago, but it seems like yesterday. You know? I haven't seen the lehenga & jewelry since then coz they weren't with me, I just collected them about 2 weeks back. I had forgotten what they look like!

Products For DIY Bridal Makeup

Hey everyone,

I know my Bridal Series is hanging in limbo. It's going to come to an abrupt end since I've got so many things to do before Christmas + I'm leaving for vacay right after that. But I want to do a couple more posts to end the series properly. Fingers crossed!

Below are the makeup products I'd use on my wedding day- if I were doing my own makeup. I'd be wearing a pink lehnga with gold embellishments, so I picked the colors accordingly:


Face:
  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil Free
  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
  • YSL Touche Eclat to brighten up the undereye areas
  • MAC Studio Finish Concealer to conceal blemishes
  • MAC Chromagraphic Pencil for spot concealing
  • The Body Shop Loose Powder
  • MAC Sculp & Shape Powder to contour & highlight
  • Benefit Bella Bamba
  • Benefit Hoola 
  • MAC Fleur Power Blush
  • MAC Fix+ Finishing Spray to set makeup. For me, this works best at this time of year when my skin is drier.
Other long-wear foundations:
Revlon Colorstay Foundation, MAC Pro Longwear Foundation, MAC Studio Sculp Foundation. 

Other Blush suggestions: Colorbar Peachy Rose & Just Earth, MAC Dollymix, MAC Peaches, Nars Orgasm, Benefit Coralista, Bourjois Lilas D'or, Lakme Earth Rose Trio Blush, Lakme Cheek Artist Kiss Of A Rose (Visit the Blush Bar for swatches)
