Hi everyone! The wedding season is here and Amazon.in has created a beautifully curated Wedding Store, just to make our seasonal shopping a lot easier! To update my makeup collection for this season, I was on the lookout for a few essentials – a nice eye palette with lots of shimmer, a pale gold nail polish and deep raspberry pink lipstick and I was able to locate everything fairly quickly. The store has been categorized very well, divided into Bride and Groom sections and then further subdivided into hair, skin, makeup categories. The makeup collections are really easy to navigate as they’ve been classified based on colors – red, pink, nude, silver etc. so if you know what you’re looking for, shopping is going to be a breeze!
The runway has always been the place to watch for the latest trends and the Wedding Store has also picked up inspiration from the runway and decoded looks for everyone – brides-to-be, bridesmaids and guests.This section of the store also features a series of videos showcasing looks for different occasions like engagement, sangeet, day wedding look. Picking products for a chosen function could be any easier!
Another very thoughtful section of the wedding store is the Gifting section. If you’re a bridesmaid/friend looking for some lovely gifting choices, this section is just the one you need to explore. With beautiful fragrances to luxury gift boxes, this category gives us lots of options for wedding gifts.
And this is not all. There are sections for fashion inspiration and guidance as well where you can see a selection of outfit choices, based on the occasion, under ‘What to Wear this Wedding Season‘ category. And the ‘Get Fit and Glowing‘ section, based around health and wellness before the wedding, is sure to cover the last leg of wedding preparations – fitness. Working out is not only great for the body, but excellent for the mind as well, especially during the stressful time of wedding planning. I quite like the inclusion of beauty supplements in this section.
The Wedding Store is the most comprehensive store I’ve seen till date on Amazon! Covering just about every topic under the sun from beauty, fashion, gifting and fitness – this is a complete guide to wedding prep, for the bride as well as the friends of the bride!
I picked the Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Color – Ivory Dust and it is the perfect pale gold color that I was looking for. This is going to work with all outfits and coordinate well with gold as well as silver work.
For the eyes, I zeroed in on the Makeup Academy Paradise Palette which contains 10 beautiful metallic finish colors. The color palette ranges from soft pinks and purples to gold and copper shades – basically covering every color that I would like to wear. The beauty of this palette is that the colors can be used wet as well and that gives an intense shine. I can’t wait to create some wedding season looks with this palette!
For the lips, even though I do love my mattes, I wanted a more moisturizing, satin finish color as my lips get quite dry in the winters and the Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Lip Color formula gives a really nice non-drying color to the lips. I picked the shade Hot Wine which is a deep raspberry color, something that was lacking in my collection.
I was also on the lookout for a few products for body and skin care and I’m really happy with my picks. Well groomed hands and feet are a must and I picked up the VLCC Pedicure and Manicure kit. It’s not always possible to get professional help because of time constraints so a quick DIY kit is very useful to have at home! It’s much more cost efficient as well.
Similarly for the face, I find the facial kits by brands like VLCC, Shahnaz, Lotus Herbals really handy and I picked up the VLCC Gold Radiance Facial Kit. This contains one-time-use sachets of individual products like cleanser, scrub, massage cream, face pack etc. which makes it very convenient and easy to use.
And my last pick from the Wedding Store was the St.Ives Daily Hydrating Vitamin E Body lotion. With all the arm, mid-riff and back baring outfits that we dare to put on in the wedding season, hydration for the body is essential to avoid any dry skin disasters! I’ve wanted to try St.Ives body lotions since they officially launched in India and I was really pleased to see this giant bottle (contains 621 ml) when I opened my Amazon package. This is definitely going to last me a long time!
