Winter time is always the best time for celebrations primarily Weddings. It can be your own wedding or your best friends’ wedding you got to shine right? I will share my favorite wedding makeup essentials to look fabulous this wedding season. I will try and cover as many makeup products as I can and review them soon on the blog. 


First things first, lets start with a good foundation. I swear by the L’Oreal Infallible 24H foundation, I couldn’t find any better drugstore foundation than this when it comes to overalls. The staying power, the coverage, the blendibility, the glow, its phenomenal. The best part is it makes you feel beautiful.

Makeup fixing Spray to Keep the Makeup Fresh and Dewy

Makeup Fixing Spray

I hardly knew the importance of a makeup fixing spray until I met this darling, I am currently obsessed with the Colorbar Face Mist, it is known to be the dupe to Mac Fixing Spray. It does it job so well. I will put a detailed review on this soon after this post.

Makeup Sponge

After using the F21 makeup sponge, I got addicted to sponges in fancy shapes. I wanted to try more variety. I couldn’t think of a better option than the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. It’s the best sponge I have ever used. I highly recommend it for the flawless makeup application which gives an air brush finish. 

Concealer to Keep the Makeup Flawless


The most important thing this wedding season is the concealer. If you don’t hide it, you’ve had it Biggrin just kidding. Its of utmost necessity to find the right concealer for yourself. I recommend this budget concealer from Maybelline which adds up as a highlighter feature too. I also recommend the Kryolan which comes in numerous shades and has amazing coverage. 

Eyeliner for those Winged Eyes

Long Lasting and Highly Pigmented Kohl Pencil


The fancy winged liners are in rave since the 60’s and will not exit sometime soon. The perfect tool to get that flick is a pen liner. I use two variants from Maybelline and one from Essence. I have already reviewed the Colossal liner. Next up is the Hyper Liner. I am in love with this one more than the colossal one. Will let you know why soon Wink if you want an eye pencil, the best ever eye pencil is from Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate. I havenet used a better drugstore kohl yet.

Glitter Palette to Bring the Spark in the Eyes


I will show you a unique eye shadow perfect for the wedding glitz and glam. The glitter eye shadow from Nyx Cosmetics. This has won my heart with its beautiful glitter particles. It highlight the eyes so well that its bound to attract compliments. 


When it comes to highlighter, I am choosy. I don’t like the chunky glitter peeking out of my cheeks and shouting for attention. I like the soft luminous glow. I am thankful to manufacturers like Revlon and Sivanna Colors for bringing in such beautiful shimmer bricks. They are the perfect ones for the ongoing wedding season. 


When your base is one place, there is one thing which can add up to the look and makeup you look healthy and glowy is the blush. It is a key to rosy cheeks and perfect complete makeup look. I use this blush palette from Makeup Revolution. It has 10 shades and all in the pink color family to bring out that blush in the blushing bride. 

Matte Lipstick to keep the Color for Long

Red Lipstick Your Best Friend this Wedding Season


Its time to talk business girls. No makeup can ever be complete without a lipstick. I am a lipstick hoarder and love them matte. I recommend long staying, highly pigmented lip colors for the wedding season. My top picks are the Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipsticks and the Choice of the dignitaries the Mac Lipsticks. 

What’s your pick from the above? Which product you would like to add into your stash?
