Hello boss babes,
I know I have been writing a lot these days. All thanks to my college and the semester exams. Yup, this is the only time when you would find me writing too much. I mean just go through my blog archive and you will know. Admit it, exams are the times when our brain suddenly becomes hyperactive and gets loaded with amazingly creative ideas. I am a very creative person myself and thus, I totally get drifted away to creating content whenever I am stressing. For some stress-eating helps. For me, stress content creating is the most helpful. Judging from the blog title, you might have guessed that I will be talking about wedding makeup looks. Well, you caught me!
Tis the wedding season and if you are not getting married, then probably you are the one who is making dazzling appearances on every other wedding of your relatives and friends. I myself have got a few weddings to attend and this actually makes the time right to try on the perfect wedding makeup look. I mean, until and unless you do not compete with the bride, what fun it is. Lol, just kidding. I am sure that you would not hate it when you walk and heads start to turn. Nobody hates getting all the attention. I certainly don’t. Now I am not here to teach you how to do makeup. I guess every girl knows exactly how to do it. And to be honest, some of you may even do better than me. Then, why am I even here? What am I even talking about all this while? Well, read the title again now, “Everything you need to know to nail the perfect wedding makeup look”. Ring a bell? I will take you through the steps that you must follow in order to achieve the perfect makeup look. At almost every step, I would introduce a cosmetic from Mattlook Cosmetics’ Wedding Range. Let us just know a little more about Mattlook Cosmetics and what makes them different from other brands.
Mattlook Cosmetics has launched their exclusive wedding range of cosmetics focused more on consumers who are looking for an affordable cosmetic range. They have been able to create cosmetics within affordable price limits without hampering the quality of the products. Mattlook Cosmetics want to make sure that quality fashion is accessible to every individual. They are set to make a mark in the cosmetic industry and are definitely going to raise the bar with their perfect price and quality balance. Let us now move on to the steps wherein I will reveal the Mattlook Cosmetics Wedding Range.
1. Hydrate your skin
The first step before applying any cosmetics on your skin would be hydrating it. And before hydrating your skin, cleansing is sheer. So make sure to wash your face, neck, and arms. Next step would be to hydrate it by applying moisturizer. Moisturizer nourishes your skin and helps in making the application of other cosmetics even on your skin. I have seen many people making one big mistake when they are applying moisturizer is that they do not allow the moisturizer to settle down properly and move on to the next step. Girls, patience is the key truly. Allow the moisturizer to get absorbed in the skin for a few minutes before hopping to the next step.
2. Get to the Base
Next step we need to perfect is our base. After your skin is moisturized, you should prep your skin by making it even. For this, you would need a primer that would fill the teeny tiny pores and fine wrinkles of your skin. Skipping this step may result in uneven patches on your face. No matter how wonderfully you dress up, a patchy makeup can spoil the show. As I had already said that I will introduce you to a cosmetic from Mattlook cosmetics at almost every step, so let us get started. Since we are talking about primer, so the curtain raiser starts with Mattlook Pore Refining Primer.
Mattlook Pore Refining Primer is a velvety and hydrating primer. Most of the primers that I have used are super mattifying and they literally suck the hydration out of my skin. Now you know, why I emphasized on moisturizing your skin. At first, I was not sure if this primer would do the same. The only way to know was to try it. And I must say that it was definitely the right thing to do. Well, the primer not only gave my skin a smooth transformation but my skin was instantly radiated. All this without compromising on the hydration. An eve transformation, a little bit of dazzle and enough hydration are all I can expect from a good primer. Now you must be thinking that the cost of this product would be sky high. What if I tell you it costs just Rs 499 for 30 gm? I can imagine the bling in your eyes right now because mine was the same.
3. Lay your foundation
The next very important step is to lay your foundation well. Mousse foundation helps in giving your skin in giving a semi-matte to matte finish look. Applying foundation is a very important step to make sure that your makeup does not end up looking unnatural. Some people think that foundations are to give a lighter skin tone, but this is simply wrong. Foundation must be in line with your complexion. Choosing a foundation lighter than your skin shade so that you can look fairer is gross. It is like you are doing injustice to yourself and your existence. Foundation is applied so that it gives the overall makeup a natural feel. To perfect the wedding makeup look and make sure that it does not look overboard, Mattlook Cosmetics has come up with Mattlook Feather Weight Mousse Foundation with Primer.
Mattlook Feather Weight Mousse Foundation with Primer gives your skin a natural aura and it simply has a feather-light finish. When I applied it on my skin, I did not feel burdened by the weight of the foundation. It has a mousse to powder formula, which makes sure that your skin is not left greasy or oily. I would say it is blissful for girls having oily skin. For the ones having dry skin, don’t cringe. It does not leave your skin dehydrated at all. It is also very effective in hiding fine lines, wrinkles and pores. It spreads quickly and evenly on the skin, so the application is completely hassle-free. And all of these super skills at just Rs. 549 for 25 gm. One important thing is left out here. It comes in 5 different shades of Natural, Skin, Beige, Ivory, and Rose to suit every complexion. Win-win!
4. Conceal the blemishes
Moving on to our next step, we must conceal all the stubborn spots and blemishes. We hate to admit, but even after applying a good amount of foundation, certain pesky blemishes don’t agree to leave us alone. In those situations, you are not left with any other option than dabbing on the extra foundation on top of it. Honey, you are doing it all wrong there. Even the best foundations cannot hide all the scars, spots and blemishes. This is where the work of a concealer start. Start by applying the concealer under your eye bags and other spots and blemishes. Try to dab it as evenly as possible so that it blends with the base. Mattlook Cosmetics has included Mattlook Oil-Free Concealer in their wedding range so that you do not have to worry about troubling spots and you can dazzle throughout the wedding.
Mattlook Oil-Free Concealer makes sure that your evening is not interrupted by unnecessary flaws. The concealer hides the spots, fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and dark circles. Its oil free and soft texture makes it possible to blend in with the makeup base seamlessly. This concealer comes at a very affordable price of Rs. 225 for 8 gm.
5. Define your look
The next step is to secure the makeup with a compact powder. This step is really very helpful for the girls with oily skin. It is applied on the entire face so that the makeup base does not slide along the wrinkles and the edges. It actually holds down the entire base giving it a seamless matte finish. Mattlook Cosmetics strive on providing quality fashion at reasonable prices and that is why they came up with Mattlook Splendid Makeup 2-way Cake.
Mattlook Splendid Makeup 2-way Cake is different from other compacts as it comes in two different shades in the price of one. It comes in 4 different variants namely Honey Beige, White Ivory, Rose Blush, and Natural Fair. It has unique particles in it which can create a 3D effect of contour. Now, you know what the two in one does here actually. It works as compact and contour both. It is priced just Rs. 249 for 20 gm.
6. Blush your cheeks
Coming to the sixth step, it is time to add some blush to the apples of your cheek. The blusher is every girl’s favorite thing in her makeup bag. It literally fills your heart when you see blushed cheeks, right? I mean, what good is a wedding makeup without those pretty pink cheeks. Considering blusher a necessity, Mattlook Cosmetics included Mattlook Zero Pore Mattify Longwearing Blusher.
Mattlook Zero Pore Mattify Longwearing Blusher is a liquid blusher. So you have to take just a squeeze worth blusher and then you have to apply it on the apples of your cheeks. Blend it well and you can instantly see the difference. It definitely makes the makeup look more natural and adds so much shine to your look. The best part about this blusher is its long-lasting capabilities. It lasts up to 24 hrs and can be removed only by makeup remover. Waiting for the price? Well, it comes at Rs 349 for 12 gm. There are 3 shades of it namely Dangerous Red, Fusion Pink, Fuschia Pink, and Peach Twist.
7. Add detailing to your eye
The next move would be to add some gorgeous detailing to your eyes. Add some twist to your look by throwing the ever famous winged eyeliner. An eyeliner as sharp as a laser. You can also choose to put on eyeshadow over your eyelids that go well with your ensemble. Mattlook Cosmetics added Mattlook Lashes Pushup Eyeliner to make sure your eyes do all the talking.

8. Touch up your brows
Never forget your brows. Many girls tend to skip this step, whereas this actually defines your look beautifully. The eyebrow is one of the strongest features of your face and so you should definitely add some touch up to them and never ever neglect them now. Mattlook Cosmetics has come up with Mattlook Gel Kajal and Cake Eyeliner.
Mattlook Gel Kajal and Cake Eyeliner is again a multipurpose cosmetic. The gel kajal can be used as an eyeliner and the cake can be used to give the perfect touch up to your brows.

It also stays up to 24 hours and has a bright color. It comes with a two-way brush for eyeliner and brows. Thinking that it is going to be a little costly? Wrong! You can get it for only Rs. 299.
9. Final tip - Glossy Lips
The final step to nail our perfect wedding makeup look is to lush your lips with a lipstick of your choice. Make sure you have hydrated your lips before and it does not look chapped after applying lipstick. It is also paramount that you go with a lipstick shade that matches your ensemble. If you are looking for a natural makeup look, then neutral colors should be your preference else go for bold and bright colors. Mattlook Cosmetics has added 60 different shades of Mattlook Liquid Lipstick.
Mattlook Liquid Lipstick is again 2-in-1 liquid lipstick that comes this a gloss at one end and liquid lipstick on the other end.
