Avon True’s official makeup artist, Renuka Pillai, on beauty trends and the must-haves for a bridal vanity kit.
What should a bride definitely have in her cocktail beauty kit?
A long-lash mascara and a poppy lipstick is something that every bride should have in her touch-up kit. These essentials are also great if you are a summer bride or getting married in a summer locale. Pick a lip colour that makes you stand out.
What makeup product should a bride avoid if she is getting married in a tropical, summer locale?
Avoid using bronzers and bronze shades for your eye makeup. Keep your look very subtle and light. Pack your vanity kit with a good pressed powder to keep your look intact and to avoid your makeup from melting in the hot, tropical heat.
If you had to pick the perfect bridal lip colour, what would it be?
Every bride knows about this thing called the “perfect wedding lipstick” and how it can make or break one’s look. Lipsticks are an essential part of wedding makeup and cannot be ignored as they add so much depth to your look. Some brides like to match their lipstick colour with their wedding outfit. In my opinion, matching your lip colour with your outfit would be ideal.
How does one pick the right shade of lipstick according to one’s skin tone?
Essentially, one should stick with colours that are in the same family. They can be stronger or softer than the shade that suits you best, but they shouldn’t be extremely different than what suits you. It is best to play it safe. For example, one wouldn’t wear an orange or bright pink lipstick with a red outfit on their wedding day.
