My Make-Up Routine For The Wedding Season

Two of my best friends got married days apart from each other. I have been busy with dholki's and dance practises for an entire month. It has been pretty hectic. I had to miss one friends function to attend the others. I'm going to get ready for my friend Sara's wedding in a bit and I thought I'd show what make-up products I have been using.

I use a lot of stuff, but it doesn't come across as too much when I put it on. I have been using the same things every day (boring I know). The only things have been changing around is my blush and highlighter. 


Urban Decay Deslick 
BareMinerals Original foundation (read review here)
Prime Time primer
The Body Shop Mineral Foundation Brush

I don't use foundation every day but on one of the formal dholki's I used this foundation and my friend Aroosa was sitting next to me and she told me that my skin looked 'flawless'. Well that did it, I used this on every function after that. 

I don't set my make-up during the winter because I don't want to look too matte. I use Deslick before I apply the primer. There have been times when I used to forget spraying it after I was done and despite that my make-up used to last all day. So now I just spray it before the primer and be done with it, and by the time I come home my make-up looks the same!!! (full review coming soon with pictures)

Blush+ Highlighter
Bella Bamba (review)
MAC Pink Swoon
MAC Pinch O Peach
 Benefit 10 (for contouring)
Benefit Watts Up (review)
NARS Albatross


Benefit They're Real (review)
Bobbie Brown Gel Eye Liner

These two are my favourite! The Bobbi Brown gel eye liner is amazing! (review coming soon). I am so in love the mascara that I've bought a back-up.


MAC Creme Cup
MAC Right Image

Okay, so I know I can take risks with my lipstick/gloss but creme cup looks SO good with kohl lined eyes. It's a really pretty pinkish nude.


I don't have creme cup on my lips in this picture because I misplaced it yesterday.
