Indian Bridal Makeup Kit Products: Best Lipsticks in India
Lipsticks play an integral part in any Bride’s Makeup Kit. Do not hesitate to splurge on lipsticks and also experiment with various finishes. Every bride should own a bright red, a fuchsia or a hot pink and a nude (peach or pink) lipstick. Here are our top recommendations.
MAC Ruby Woo or MAC Russian Red Lipstick (Price Rs. 1450) – Ruby Woo is a stunning neutral red lipstick which will suit all skin tones but it’s texture is a bit too drying. Another alternative is MAC Russian Red which is similar to Ruby Woo but it has satin finish and it is non-drying.
L’Oreal Pure Reds Collection Star Red Lipsticks (Price Rs. 995) – A recently launched range by L’Oreal where you can choose from 7 red lipsticks with different hues to suit your skin tone. These are a hot favorite in the market and we highly recommend Sonam Kapoor’s Pure Garnet, Frieda’s Pure Rouge & MAC All Fired Up dupe – Pure Amaranthe.
MAC Impassioned Lipstick (Price Rs. 1450) – A beautiful coral pink which is bright and an absolute stunner. This color is perfect for all brides and is a universally flattering color.

MAC Mocha Lipstick (Price Rs. 1450) – MAC Mocha is a beautiful peachy-brown color with satin finish and looks beautiful on Indian skin.
Inglot Matte Lipstick 425 (Price Rs. 950) –Another great option for a MLBB shade. A peach-pinkish nude color which appropriate for day time wear or if you want to pair with smokey eyes.
Bridal Makeup Trousseau Must Have Products: Best Eyeshadows in India
A sweep of neutral color on the lids is all a bride needs for an extra glam. It works for those brides who are new to eye makeup and neutral earthy shades compliment all outfits. We at HBM love Inglot & MAC eyeshadows as the quality is top notch and highly recommend the following cult shades.
MAC Amber Lights (Price Rs. 990 for refill) – A stunning golden peach color which lends a metallic sheen to the eyes. A must have color for all brides & will look great when paired with Indian ethnic wear.
MAC Expensive Pink (Price Rs. 990 for refill) – Expensive Pink is a perfect peachy pink- rose gold color which works wonderfully with Indian ethnic wear. This color will look gorgeous on all skin tones. Inglot Pearl Eyeshadow 407 is close dupe for MAC Expensive Pink.
MAC Antiqued (Price Rs. 990 for refill) – If there is one bronze eyeshadow that every bride should own then it will be without any doubt MAC Antiqued Eyeshadow – metallic reddish bronze color.
Inglot Pearl 422 Eyeshadow (Price Rs. 450 for refill) – A dark/chocolate brown color with a pearl finish. It is perfect for blending colors in the crease and can be used as an overall lid color too.
Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow Palette Copper Brown (Price Rs. 500) – One drugstore eyeshadow palette with netural tones which is perfect for all brides on a budget has to be Maybelline Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow Palette Copper Brown. A mix of 4 neutral colors with excellent color pay off and priced oh so reasonably.

Wedding Makeup Kit Must Haves: Best Eyeliners in India
This one is a no brainer. Eyeliners are perfect to lift up the shape of the eyes and a dash of liner is the easiest way to look made up without much effort. An Indian bride’s wedding trousseau just cannot be complete without some eyeliners and here are our top picks.
Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil Solid Black (Price Rs. 449) – One of the best pencil eyeliners available in India. Blackest black color, highly pigmented, intense color pay off and stays put on the eyes entire day without smudging. These are also available in various colors.
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama 36hr Gel Eye Liner (Price Rs. 475) – A great budget option for those who love a neat, matte gel eyeliner. Intense black color, lasts for longer hours without budging, it is safe to use on water line and can be used as base for smoky looks.
Maybelline Hyper Glossy Eyeliner (Price Rs. 250) – A deep black glossy liquid eyeliner which sets to a smudge proof finish within seconds of application and is reasonably priced too.

Oriflame The One Eye Liner Stylo Black (Price Rs. 499) – For brides, who aren’t very comfortable using liquid eyeliners, a felt tip eyeliner is a saviour. With minimal practice,
