Here’s what you can include in your sister-the-soon-to-be bride’s gift hamper...
1. Just Herbs Instaglow Almond Complexion Pack

The multiple eyeshadow shades in this palette make it a very usable one for anyone who is into makeup. It offers both nude and matte looks for your eyelids that can help create a light, natural look for the day, and a heavier, smokey look for evenings out. The 12 rose gold-infused shades are highly blendable and flatter all kinds of complexions.
3. Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF20

5. Kaya Purifying Toner
Heard of CTM, ladies? Cleansing, toning and then moisturizing is imperative in any girl’s beauty regime. And if you’re looking to gift your sister a nice toner, this one from Kaya is one to swear by. This toner is alcohol-free and doubles up as an exfoliator and unclogs pores too.
On days around and after the wedding, which will be packed with activity and running around, this facial mist is going to come in handy for the bride. It rejuvenates and hydrates the skin, ensuring it doesn’t look dull and tired. The water from bela flowers helps maintain moisture levels of the skin and makes it look nice and elastic.

Scrubbing your face and body every now and then is a must. As pre-bridal care or even once your sister is married, this scrub by Fabindia will be her go-to product. The neem and tulsi in it have purifying properties and are sure to leave the skin looking fresh and supple.
Using the right blush is prime, as far as makeup goes. This baby pink shade is one that your sister will definitely go back for once she’s used up the one you gifted her. The shade gives a very natural blush to the face and blends very well too.
