Must-have Makeup Items For Every Bride

Figuring out the perfect makeup look might be the most exciting or most daunting part, depending on your interests. But one thing is for sure - brides want long-wearing, smudge proof, and high-coverage, all while looking natural and glowy. Here are some of our must have makeup items every bride needs in their make up bag for her special day.

Primer

For primers, you want to make sure that you’re using one that you’ve tried before and love. You don’t want to break out or have any allergic reactions from a new product during your special day! So we recommend testing a few ahead of time to find your perfect primer. Here are two of our faves:

 Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer is a cult favorite for silky feeling skin and eliminating large pores!

 Another one that will minimize your pores - Benefit’s Porefessional primer will also keep your oily skin in check! We use this daily, and we’re obsessed!

Concealer

A must have to combat any blemishes or dark circles (planning a wedding is stressful)! Some concealers are great for covering those stubborn pimples, but might be too drying for under the eyes, so we suggest trying some out before your big day!

 We love Tarte’s Shape Tape concealer! It’s high coverage and doesn’t settle into our fine lines.

 Becca’s Aqua Luminous concealer is also one of our all time faves for being lightweight and hydrating!

Lash Glue

Whether you’re planning on wearing false lashes or not, lash glue comes in handy for so many other things (like fixing a broken nail, or putting a jewel back in place)!

    House of Lashes Eyelash Adhesive is our all time fave. It keeps our lashes on all day, and is so easy to apply with their thin brush applicator. It comes it “Clear White” and “Dark”, and it’s also latex free - perfect for sensitive eyes!

Blotting paper

Keep your makeup intact with oil blotting sheets. You can blot in between the ceremony and reception, or anytime you have to touch up your makeup! Blotting paper takes away the shine without the need of adding more powder on top of your makeup.

 Pretty much any blotting sheets will do the job. But our tried and true is Clean & Clear’s Oil Absorbing Sheets. One thing we LOVE is the packaging on this. Behind the cover is a small sticky tab that quickly pulls out a sheet. No more fussing with those thin sheets!

chapstick

Hydrated lips are super important on your special day! It’ll prep your lips for the special lippie you’re going to be rocking down the aisle, and keep in hydrated throughout the night of kissing and talking to your wedding guests.

 For a more intense lip treatment, we love Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask. We’d recommend wearing this at night, up until the night before your special day.

 Sugar’s Tinted Lip Treatments are a dream. They’re super moisturizing and lightweight. They do have a clear option, but the tinted ones are perfect for a sheer wash of color if you aren’t a huge lipstick fan!

Setting spray

Setting spray is probably our favorite part of the makeup routine. It’s going to help your makeup melt seamlessly into the skin, and it’ll keep your makeup in place for your big day (no makeup meltdowns here)!

 Another beauty world favorite, Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray seems to be everyone’s go-to. It’s lightweight, and we love the light mist it gives. Super refreshing, and relaxing way to end your makeup routine!

 Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer Water is kind of like magic in a bottle - it works as a primer to prep your skin, and as a setting spray to set all of your hard work. It’s hydrating and we love using it throughout the day as a little pick me up!
