Chitra Chakraborty asks:

Dear IMBB Team,

I am trying to put together a bridal makeup/skincare kit for my wedding in August.

I have been through the review posts on your blog as well a through the Ask IMBB section to get an idea on the same. It seems a lot of good products and brands have been launched in recent times (after these posts) and this has left me completely confused!

Below is a breakdown of what I am looking to put in the makeup kit and the products I am considering. Request you to please help me out by suggesting which products to get.

  1. stuff that i can recommend-
    Concealer – inglot concealer refill is the best! its reviewed on IMBB do check it out:)
    Brushes – i dont knw about coastal scents but i recently got a vega duo fibre brush for foundation n it works fab, comes for 700 n is great 🙂
    Eyeliner – colorbar iglides r the best 🙂 i also recommend using gel liners as theyre so long staying! mac fluidlines r the best gel liners!
    Lip gloss – colorbar true gloss has amazing shades plus great pigmentation, the newly launched maybllne high shine ones r also really nice.
    lotus purestay glosses r also great!
    u can also check out the revlon balm stains, they’re really long staying 🙂
    Blush – bourjois blushes r reat as well as inglot blush refills, fantastic for the price:)

  2. You can try MAC foundations if you want to. Also, you can order Coastal scents brushes online. Sigma also has a flat top brush which you can order online. For eyeshadows, you can buy palettes, or single eyeshadows from Inglot, they have many awesome shades 🙂 Try Revlon eyeliners or even MAC. L’Oreal million lashes, great one 🙂 Lancome also has good one. Again, I would suggest Inglot single refill shades for lipsticks, have you tried them yet. Maybelline has come out with new shades of lip glosses, check them out. Blush – MAC, Max factor, inglot, all have nice blushes. I think L’Oreal, Lakme have bronzers (the absolute range).

  3. OMG! So much gyaan to absorb! I am taking notes fast fast *specs* *specs* Please do contribute more ladies. I am eager to know too.

  4. I can recommend chamber Eyepencils in all colors. They are great. Oh and faces solid brown and forest green are good too.

  5. i would suggest the following

    Foundation – Kryolan Ultra or TV Paint Stick (this provides medium to heavy coverage depending on how you apply it. One of the best foundations around- can also double up as a concealer)

    Brushes – Kryolan does make good brushes and they are pretty reasonable. I have a multipurpose one for blush and foundation for 600 rs.
    Mascara –Maybelline Colossal volume
    Lipstick – try revlon matte lipsticks. Awesome shade selection in brights and brilliant staying power
    Blush – Ben Nye makes lovely cream blushes. Nyx has some great ones too. Try a matte bright cream blush and use a shimmery powder one to set it.

  6. Thank you jomol for putting up my query so fast! And for the pointers! Will get lipstick refills and eyeshadow refills from Inglot to make pallettes..revlon eyeliners seem great.. the lakme bronzer also seems nice.. the maybelline glosses look to shiny in the ads :p

    I’m doing the happy dance now that I’ve finally got some direction! It is just so confusing out there!!

  7. Thanks supriya.. this way I don’t need to spend time on applying concealer .. where can I get kryolan brushes..? Will try revlon matte lipsticks.. the blush idea is great.. especially for newly weds! Everyone would expect a newly wed female to be a little more dressed up :p
