Come rain or shine, weddings in India will never stop! However, the weather can really mess with a girl’s makeup… unless she’s armed with the right products. Here are a few must-have items that you need in your kit this wedding season.
1. Mattifying Primer
No matter what your skin type is, chances are that the humidity will make your face shine – and not in a good way! If your complexion is on the oilier end, apply a mattifying primer all over your face. Those with dry-to-normal skin can use a small amount on their T-zones.

2. Lightweight Foundation
Who has time to deal with clumpy, caked up foundation? Skip the powder formulas and opt for a weightless, water-based foundation to get the coverage you need.

3. Budge-Proof Eye Shadow
We hate it when our perfectly crafted eye shadow smudges. To ensure that your work stays put, go for shadow sticks. These formulas are creamy enough to blend in, but once they set, they won’t move for hours.

4. Waterproof Liner (And Mascara)
Whether you get caught in an unexpected shower or cry at a friend’s wedding, waterproof products will stop your eye makeup from running. If you hate the crunchy feeling of waterproof mascara, you can layer a coat of regular mascara underneath first.

5. Lip Gloss
Matte lipsticks look stunning, but can feel chalky and drying in this weather. Opt for lip glosses or glazes to get a little colour.
