Whether you’re planning a glamorous bachelorette party with your girls, kicking off your wedding celebrations or on your honeymoon, makeup can truly complete your look. Besides its obvious beautification advantage of course, makeup is also the best medium of self-expression. A minimalist or maximalist, there are a list of essentials every bride needs to have in her wedding trousseau. If you’re not sure where to start, you’re in luck. We tapped in on the expertise of London-based makeup artist and educator, Vithya Visvendra spills the beans on her cosmetic must-buys for a simple look.

Vithya has worked with several celebrities including Prasanna & Sneha, Meena and Amy Jackson. Her makeup mantra is simple, she shares, “I try to set myself apart by trying to create something natural. Skin looking like skin is important to me,” she tells us. Makeup, she says, should bring out your best features and not look cakey or plastered on. “Minimal, natural, but with a bold lip colour” describes her signature style.

Sephora Collection Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush in 57

For an a flawless, airbrushed look, Vithya recommends investing in this brush from Sephora. This unique round brush can help conceals dark circles in a stroke, while its short, synthetic bristles are apt to buff and blend.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

The brand’s cult favourite setting powder is also Vithya’s go-to. It sets makeup for 16 hours without adding weight or texture. She suggests gliding it over the undereye, over blemishes and T-zone area post concealer.

Morphe M501 - Pointed Blender Highlighter Brush

This multi-purpose brush is apt for highlighting and also setting the loose powder. Its tapered natural bristles promise precise application for diffusing colour and flawlessly blending.

For light contouring, invest in this award-winning bronzer. This matte powder is available in four buildable shades for sun-sculpted dimension. Vithya suggests Varllarta shade for south Asian skin tones.

Made with squirrel substitute, Inglot’s brush in 38SS is the perfect tool for sculpting your face. “Start from the hairline. Go as light or as dark as you desire,” Vithya says.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz® in Chocolate

A good brow pencil will serve you through thick and thin, affirms Vithya. “Sculpted brows will make you look a little younger. First brush the brows with the spully, before filling in the colour,” she says. This retractable pencil is ideal for outlining and detailing brows, thanks to its unique wax formula.

Shu Uemura Iconic Eyelash Curler

This award-winning product delivers the perfect curl. Its upgraded silicone pad in a new mushroom shape provides a protective, stay-put edge for improved safety and optimal curl.

Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

This waterproof, smudge-proof mascara is great if you want to dial up the drama without weighing down your lashes. It’s formulated with ultra-lightweight particles and pro vitamin B5. Vithya recommends a wiggle movement for the best curl and without any clumps.

NARS Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl

Vithya suggests this siren red colour to finish a simple look that’s also going to turn heads. It instantly delivers the impact of a matte lipstick, while being enriched with vitamin E and emollients for a creamy glide. She says start by outlining your lips before filling your lips with colour.
