Bengali wedding makeup for face
Step 1: Primer
After cleansing and moisturising your face, apply primer to prep your skin and create a smooth canvas for the rest of your Bengali bridal makeup.
Our recommendation – Maybelline Facestudio Master Prime Primer Makeup
Step 2: Foundation
Next, dot the foundation all over your face to create an even complexion and smooth texture. You can use a makeup sponge to do so. Make sure that you use a foundation shade that matches your skin tone and undertone. You can easily find your perfect shade by using the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool.
Our recommendation – Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation
Step 3: Concealer
Apply the concealer to conceal dark circles, spots, acne marks and banish the blemishes. Use the facelifting technique for a snatched yet natural-looking finish.
Our recommendation – Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
Step 4: Contour
Add some definition to your bridal wedding makeup by contouring your cheekbones, jawline, and nose. Blend the contour well so that your face doesn’t look muddy or cakey.
Step 5: Powder
Lock the base and control shine, oil, sebum, and sweat on your face by applying powder. (Find your ideal powder and concealer shade on the Maybelline Fit Me Finder tool.)
Our recommendation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Pressed Powder
Step 6: Blush
The Bengali bridal makeup look is more focused on eye makeup. So, to make your eyes appear prominent, use a lighter shade of blush such as rose or nude and sweep it across your cheeks to give your face a naturally flushed look.
Our recommendation – Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush – Rosy Nude
Step 7: Highlighter
Accentuate your features and enhance your natural radiance by applying a highlighter on the higher points of your face such as the bridge and tip of your nose and cupid’s bow.

Bengali bridal eye makeup
Step 8: Eyebrows
Remember, the eyebrows can tie your entire Bengali bridal makeup look together. So, shape them well. Define your brows by brushing them with a spoolie and use an angled eyebrow pencil to fill them.
Our recommendation – Maybelline New York’s Define and Blend Brow Pencil
Step 9: Eyeshadow
Bengali wedding makeup is known for bold eyes with shimmery eyeshadows. Use dark to deep eyeshadow shades such as brown and apply them to your eyelids. Then, take a bronze or golden eyeshadow shade and pat it over the brown eyeshadow.
Our recommendation – Maybelline City Mini Eyeshadow Palette
Step 10: Kajal
Show off your bold and beautiful eyes by applying a thick line of kajal that defines your eyes.
Our recommendation – Maybelline Colossal Kajal Super Black
Step 11: Eyeliner
Use the smudge-proof eyeliner and draw a prominent wing to take your Bengali bridal eye makeup up a notch.
Our recommendation – Maybelline Colossal Bold Liner
Step 12: Mascara
Lift and sculpt your lashes from root to tip and add dramatic volume by applying waterproof mascara. This will prevent smears, clumps or flakes and let you enjoy the wedding festivities without having to worry.
Our recommendation – Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara
Bengali wedding makeup for lips
Step 12: Lip balm
Start your lip makeup by using a lip balm. This will keep your lips soft and hydrated all through the day.

Step 13: Lipstick
Go for a vibrant and bold red lipstick shade to complete your Bengali bridal makeup look. Try using waterproof, matte, and lightweight formulas that will let your lips stay in comfort all day.
