1. Primer

Any good bridal vanity box should have a primer in it. It is necessary as it makes your skin appear pretty smooth and silky. It also helps your makeup last longer and helps diminish some of your skin blemishes.

2. Foundation

Your foundation is the base of your makeup. You need to make sure that the foundation you have matches your skin type and colour, as it can make it either make your skin look patchy or cause skin problems. Also, if you do not have a concealer in your bridal vanity box, a foundation in emergencies can act as a double.

3. Concealer

Your bridal vanity box ideally should contain a concealer, as it is the product that truly helps you hide your blemishes. You can conceal your acne scars or dark circles with it, or sometimes even brighten up some areas to give you a more glowing look.

4. Blush And Bronze

Both these products are drastically different but they help you add more colour to your skin in different ways. For the bronzer, you have to make sure that it isn’t too much darker than your skin tone, and for the blush make sure to not use too much of it, you do not want to give an old creepy doll vibe.

5. Highlighter

A highlighter might not be a staple in all bridal vanity boxes, but it should be. A highlighter adds a bit of a glow to your skin and also highlights the high points of your face, making it appear slimmer.

6. Setting Powder

A setting powder is a pretty necessary item in your box. It makes sure that all the makeup you have done stays locked in. Also, you never know when some powder might be needed in handy, so it’s a win-win.

An eyeshadow can always add more drama to your look if that is what you like to go for. Eyeshadow comes in various colours and colour schemes and it is a good idea to stow away a pretty basic eyeshadow palette in your bridal vanity box.

1. Lip Balm

Now though lip balms are a trivial thing that most of us forget to put in the kit, they are pretty necessary and needed in the box you prepare. A lip balm ensures that when you apply that final coat of lipstick on your lips it glides smoothly across your lips. In winter weddings, they become even more of a necessity as your lips dry and get chapped up faster.

2. Lipstick

Now a lipstick is likewise a pretty common item to put in your bridal vanity box. If you intend to carry this box around with you then either you can keep exchanging the lip colours you use throughout the wedding functions, or you could find a colour that could be applied with almost all outfits.


1. Makeup Brushes

There is an obvious explanation as to why you would need makeup brushes in your bridal vanity box, which is that most products do not come with any kind of application tool. And unless you are willing to apply everything by finger, you would need these in your box.

2. Moisturiser

Now a lot of people would forget to put this item in their box, but it can be a lifesaver at times. You definitely need it for your skins and furthermore, if you forget to carry a makeup remover at times, it can remove most makeup.

3. Rose Water

Now rose water can be used as a toner for your face, as you prep it up for makeup. The reason it would be recommended than most other toners is that it has other added benefits to it than just a toner.

4. Makeup Remover

For reasons, if your makeup ever gets messed and you need a quick fix, you would need to keep a makeup remover handy to start over.

5. Tissues

The reason it says tissue and not wet wipes is that though wet wipes are good for cleaning your face, sometimes a dry tissue is handier, also you already handy and of more use.

6. Earbuds

Though nowadays people are more aware, earbuds can save you when it comes to removing small patches of makeup. when only a flick of the brush goes wrong and you wouldn’t want to remove your whole makeup, in those times the small earbuds help out a lot.

7. Comb And Pins

What would be a bridal vanity box without some hair fixing tools? Combs can come in very handy if you do not plan to fix your hair with hairspray, and carrying extra hairpins is always an advantage.

8. Mint
