1. What are the summer makeup shades to look out for this season?
Matte eye pencils are great to work with on the lids, especially for summers, in shades of browns. The new Kay by Katrina has some of the amazing shades you can try. You can add a pop of colour with the Huda Beauty liquid eyeshadows too, to bring out that summery vibe!

Keep the skin fresh and minimal, irrespective of day or night. Never miss out on sunscreen in the day. Avoid black Kajal in the day. Can keep it for the night.
3. What are the best foundation brands + shades for Indian brides?
Foundation is a very personal choice and it also depends on the skin type and condition you own. MAC has a great range of foundations and is easily accessible too, from sheer liquids to buildable stick foundations in various shade ranges.
4. Should a bride keep an emergency makeup pouch with her? If yes, which products should she keep in the pouch?
Oh Yes! One should always think of the unexpected as a bride and be ready to face such situations! Especially all the summer brides out there, do carry blotting papers to keep that sweat and oil away! Else stock of plain tissues will work too! Small hair and safety pins will as well come handy.
