Melbourne makeup artist and hair stylist Kristy Bassett shares her tips, inspiration and latest work

Indian Bridal Makeup

One of my recent bridal enquiries was to do hair and makeup for Swagatha's engagement party. The wedding will be held in India so unfortunately I won't be able to do the hair and makeup for the wedding day. Sad face!

Here's how I achieved this look

Base: I primed the skin with Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer, then lightly applied Kryolan OB4 with a foundation brush and buffed it in with a latex wedge. I set the foundation with Makeup Forever HD powder and contoured with Mac Matte Bronzer.

Cheeks: Mac - Plum Foolery

Eyes: I used Mac Paint Bamboo over the entire lid and Mac Eyeshadow Bamboo over the lid and up to the brow line. I  applied Mac Pigment Goldenaire over the mobile lid and contoured the socket with Proof 238. Next I used Mac Black Track Gel Liner along the lash line and into a slight flick. I finished the look with YSL Black Mascara and added individual eyelashes along the entire lash line starting with medium lashes on the outer edges and working into smaller ones.

Lips: Proof Maldives Ultra Gloss

I think Swagatha looked gorgeous - if only I could make it to India for her wedding day! Brides to be, I'm more than happy to travel to exotic destinations to be by your side!
