Giveaway includes Clinique’s Bridal Trousseau Service event and complimentary treats!
–This contest is now closed. Winners announced at the end of the post.–
I recently completed 2 years of wedded bliss. Around this time of the year, I find myself getting nostalgic about the lead up to the wedding – all the preparation, the frantic calls to the (then) fiancé and of course, putting together my makeup trousseau box.
Back in 2011, I knew very little about skin care, and next to nothing about makeup. Getting a beauty box together for my trousseau was proving to be a challenge.
How was a lip balm + kajal girl going to transform into a Wikipedia of Beauty bride to be?
My journey was long and arduous – days spent reading product reviews and makeup tutorials, confused with multiple opinions and so. many. products. How many did I really need to go from novice to pro? Will I ever have the time to actually take out an entire hour just to do my makeup before a major party? If I didn’t learn, though, would I have to hire a makeup artist every time I went out? Why doesn’t someone make it easier for brides-to-be?
While I had to do it the hard way – research everything to death, watch YouTube tutorials that left me with even more questions and despite all the effort leave me unable to successfully apply eyeliner till date – you’re going to have it easier. There is someone who finally sat up and took notice, understood what a bride really needs, and crafted a service where an expert will hand-hold her through the whole process of learning about how to take care of her skin before the wedding all the way up to makeup advice for the lip balm + kajal kind of girl.
Clinique, one of my favourite beauty brands, launched a Bridal Trousseau Service last year that consists of:
- an appointment with specially trained Clinique Colour Specialists, who will guide you with a personalised skin care regimen & teach you neat tricks about DIY makeup so that you’re self-sufficient when getting dressed to attend weddings and dinner parties
- a specially-designed Bridal Trousseau Box filled with a handpicked selection of Clinique products suited to your needs, as determined by the Colour Specialist during the appointment
The Bridal Trousseau Service, with expert tutorials and a customized trousseau box full of Clinique products for the bride, costs INR 15,000.
A Taste of the Bridal Trousseau Service
Since helping brides to be is the focus of Clinique, they had organized an event last December where a select few brides came in for an afternoon of beauty lessons from experts. Essentially, brides got a first-hand experience with what the Bridal Trousseau Service would be like. I attended the event, and walked out that day with a bunch of great beauty tips to refer back to in my day to day.
I’ve been a loyal Clinique fan for over 3 years (my first ever Clinique purchase was the Sun SPF 30 Face Cream – on tube #2 now!) and since that event, my beauty box has been over-flowing with Clinique products. They’re undeniably amazing.
So when Clinique called to say they are back with the event this year, only better, and with more experts on board – I was excited to team up with them and bring thedelhibride readers a super exclusive pass into this year’s event.
On the 8th of November, Clinique is hosting a bridal event with Jasleen Kochhar of Bougainvilla Design (one of the top wedding planners in the country) at Clinique’s brand new store in Select City Walk. A very select group of brides (literally, very select – from what I’ve heard, no more than 10) will have access to a session with Clinique Colour Specialists – who will first demonstrate quick makeup lessons, followed by a one-on-one session where a bride’s personal skin care and makeup queries will be answered. The two brides will walk away with a surprise gift bag from Clinique at the end of the day.

Thank you, to all 28 of you who participated! I know, the contest was short-lived this time. We’ll try & keep longer duration contests so that more of you can enter. So, this is how it went this morning – I HAD to make chits and pick randomly. I made the husband do the picking, because I needed a completely neutral party to do the honours.
Congratulations Reshu & Sonal!
Please get in touch TODAY to get details about the event tomorrow. See you, girls!
