Weddings = crazy times. There are thousands of things to do, to say and even to feel. In all this, a pimple pops or your eyeliner smudges. Disaster! So we rounded up our real brides and asked them that one secret makeup weapon that lasted them through this super – important week and gave them #skingoals.
“It’s not a makeup product but it’s a magic potion! Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair is crazy crazy magical. I started using it 3 months before my wedding and loaded it on my wedding week; my skin looked so fresh and supple. It’s expensive but soo sooo worth the money!”
“The Bobbi Brown Retouching Wand saved me from a million retouches during my wedding week. It has this sponger applicator which helps to instantly buff the product into the skin. It gives this airbrushed finish and no blending is required which is perfect for your wedding week because it involves so much running! Make sure that you pick the right shade so that it helps perfectly.”

“I have combination skin which leads to powdering my t-zone and nose way too often. I used the M.A.C Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder throughout my wedding week when I dint have professional makeup on. It’s transparent so no need of finding that perfect shade – which is my universal problem in foundations.”
“Anyone who has super oily skin knows that you can’t leave your house without blotting sheets. And that’s what saved me during my wedding week. I had my BFF carry it along her purse wherever I went so that I would have it handy. Dab dab dab!”
“I swear by the Facial Tonic Mist Panchpushp by Forest Essentials and that was my best friend during my wedding week. It acts like a mild moisturizer, toner and during my wedding week it even made me feel good with its smell because its divineeee! Its bottle says that it contains five flowers of which the Rose is naturally hydrating, Bela helps in retaining moisture, Marigold is toning, Kewda is softening and Saffron gives a glow to the skin. What more can I ask for?”
“I was doing most of my makeup myself during my wedding week except the day of the wedding. My cousin got the theBalm Time Balm Face Primer for me from US and it was a blessing in disguise. Makeup stayed on for longer and it gave it the perfect moisturized base to my skin too. Recommended to all brides to be.“
“I am a person who never wore makeup too much but in the wedding week, I was loaded with makeup and getting it off every night, function after function was a task. The Chamomile makeup remover from Bodyshop is immensely helpful. It’s waterproof and gets even the stubborn ‘red lip’ out! It’s alcohol free so no rashes too.”
“Sleeping was a huge problem during my wedding week as I was soo stressed about everything. My mom made sure that a few drops of lavender oil was either diffused my bedroom or on my pillowcase. I slept like a baby! Must have for brides!”
