Essential Items for Your Makeup Trousseau:

Certainly, let’s add product recommendations for each step of the makeup trousseau:


Invest in a high-quality, long-wearing foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly. This is the base of your makeup, so it’s crucial to get it right. Finding the right foundation is one of the more daunting makeup tasks for anyone. Now, throw a bride into the mix—choosing the perfect base can be even more challenging. You need something that is going to last and that’s going to look great both in photos and in real life. So, we bought you the best of best list!

b. L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24-Hour Fresh Wear Foundation

Things To Remember Before You Pick Your Foundation:

Make sure the foundation you buy doesn’t contain a High SPF and does not contain titanium dioxide. (A high SPF/ Titanium dioxide can result in a ‘white cast’ on your face when you are photographed with flash. No body wants that!)

Always test out the foundation on your jawline, not the back of your hand.

Pick foundation according to your under tone, not skin tone. Warm-toned, go for orange/yellow foundations while cool toned, go for pink-toned foundations If you are in between, opt for a neutral one. Some foundations oxidise on your skin and turn darker after half an hour of wear, please make sure you test out the foundation before you buy, especially a luxurious one.



Concealers work like magic to cover any imperfections. Choose one that’s creamy and provides excellent coverage. When it comes to makeup heroes, there’s no beauty product that works harder than your favourite concealer. The best concealers ever can cover acne, shadows, and other imperfections like a champ, never crease, are long-lasting, and waken your face

Things To Remember Before You Pick Your Concealer:

Go for a concealer that will highlight your under eyes and high points. For correction, go for a colour corrector.

Ensure your concealer adheres to your skin type. A liquid concealer on oily skin may not work well. Opt for a cake style or a cream concealer.

Invest in a good makeup sponge (we recommend the beauty blender!) so that the concealer doesn’t crease your under eyes or around your laugh lines.

Blush and Bronzer:

A good blush and bronzer can add warmth and radiance to your face. Opt for shades that complement your skin tone. Blush is a key element that adds a touch of colour and dimension to your overall makeup look. It can help to brighten up your complexion, enhance your face shape, and give your skin the appearance of a healthy glow.

Blush is usually the first thing that wears off so go with a blush that has good pigmentation and stay-on capacity
