Trousseau Makeup Essentials

Hi,

One of my very close friend, who is getting married, is a total makeup newbie and must have previously just used a kajal and lip-gloss. She was apprehensive about her event makeup as well as items she would require for dressing up after her wedding. Considering there are many girls who aren’t very enthusiastic about makeup but want to try it, this post is a comprehensive list of the basics you require. There are many  basic-makeup articles on the web but I would like to focus on basic-trousseau makeup essentials for Indian brides.

 SKIN CARE 

  1. MOISTURIZER – This is a must for everyday wear. Choose a moisturizer depending your skin type, always read the label. During daytime apply the moisturizer first and then the sunscreen. You could also go in for separate day and night creams depending on your skin care requirements.
    Recommended: Neutrogena Oil-free Moisturizer for Combination Skinskin care trousseau makeup
  2. SUNSCREEN – A must when stepping out during the morning/afternoon. You could skip the sunscreen during indoor programs. Also skip the sunscreen if you are going to be photographed because it results in a white cast on your face during flash photography. Definitely apply moisturizer before sunscreen, especially for dry skin.
    Recommended: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Drytouch Sunblock
  3. LIP BALM – This is an essential for all seasons, even if we believe otherwise. Apply a lip balm a few minutes before applying any lip colour or use a tinted lip balm for a quick colour addition.
    Recommended: Forest Essentials Luscious Kokum and Honey Lip Balm

Everyday Makeup Routine

Hi,

Today I will be discussing the basic everyday look and my personal daily makeup routine along with some product recommendations. Most girls I know follow variations of the same process moisturise, base, conceal, face powder, eye liner, mascara, lip colour and blush. It might sound like too much work but it actually takes just about 10 minutes to do the everyday look.

1. QUICK BASIC EVERYDAY ROUTINE

Larissa shows us the classic everyday routine. Her makeup routine is the closest match to my daily routine that I could find online. Special mention to the ‘inverted triangle’ concealing technique and her use of a lash brush, these two are probably the most understated tips by vloggers (video bloggers).
