Every bride-to-be and her vanity box are best friends. Their love is eternal. Like her bridal outfit, she takes time to carefully craft her bridal makeup kit, trying to reach perfection. Researching online, asking friends and whoever she can about the best products she can invest in to start her new life with. So we thought why not make this hunt easy for you, and get the makeup maestro Amina Z to help you design you bridal vanity box. Read on to find out which products are must-haves, and which ones are not worth the buy or the time.
A concealer is the perfect product to hide blemishes or under eye circles that you get after sleepless nights and post-wedding fun with your family and friends. Amina Z. recommends Nars Cosmetics Radiant Creamy Concealer and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer for their natural coverage and transparent effect.
A foundation is the most crucial and essential part of a proper makeup routine because its used to cover flaws and to create a uniform canvas. For a brides vanity box, Amina Z. recommends a full coverage foundation such as L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation for a night out, transitioned with MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm for daily wear.
EYE SHADOW PALETTE
Your eyes are the most prominent feature on your face, so the purpose of using an eye shadow is to enhance that feature and let your eyes do the talking. So the correct selection of eye shadows will make your eyes look more attractive, but with the wide range of palettes available, choosing a palette can be a daunting task. So, Amina Z. recommends that every bride should have these two must-have palettes in her vanity box to create a subtle yet a wide range of looks to match any outfit she adorns: Morphe 35O Colour Nature Glow Eye Shadow Palette and deep and gold eyes with Urban Decay Naked 3 Eye shadow Palette.
If you want to define your eyes then you need to have the perfect eyeliner because your eye makeup is incomplete without it. Also, eye liners come in different formulas so its essential to use a product that you are best comfortable with, and can easily use to create a dramatic look. So, Amina Z. recommends to invest in a good eyeliner such as Inglot’s AMC Eye Liner Gel # 77 and Maybelline’s Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner. Always look for a smudge-free eyeliner.
A good mascara can give your eyes that perfect definition, so make sure to heighten the colour and nature of your eyelashes either by using a lengthening mascara, and a voluminous mascara for thin eyelashes. Moreover, both types of mascaras can be used to give meaning to your eyelashes without having to use falsies. Amina Z. recommends Hypnose – Voluminizing Mascara by Lancome and L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara.
A bride-to-be is naturally glowing with colour, but it’s also necessary to have a pigmented shade of blush-on in her vanity box. Amina Z. recommends MAC Cosmetics Blush in Desert Rose, NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm for all skin tones, and Lovely Cookie Blusher by Etude House.
To look picture perfect, you have to have chiselled cheekbones and Luscious’s Face Contour Kit recommended by Amina Z. will help you get that look.
According to Amina Z., translucent powder has multiple benefits. It can used to set the product under your eyes, highlight your jawline, give a fine look to your contour, and is great for an oily T-zone or brides who have combination skin. Coty Airspun Translucent Face Powder and Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Face Powder are must-haves in a brides vanity box.
It’s great to invest in good lipstick shades, but according to Amina Z. every bride-to-be’s basic vanity box should at least have 6 lipstick shades. Bobbi Brown and MAC Cosmetics have a wide range of lipsticks if you have a love for high-end products, however drugstore brands such as; Color Studio and Rivaaj Cosmetics have a variety of amazing shades. Amina Z.’s favourite lipstick collection is from Color Studio in Sorbet, Delilah, Predator, Gossip, Impassioned and Russian Red.
