The Top 7 Bridal Make-up Products You Need

You’ve got the dress, you’ve found your dream shoes, and your wedding venue is waiting to be made all pretty. Now it’s time to think about making yourself pretty for your wedding day – and all via DIY bridal make-up!

Not everyone wants to get an expert make-up artist in to help on their big day. Weddings are far from affordable, so where you can cut back, you’ll cut back, and with the right make-up advice, this is an area where you can do so. You’re probably wondering which products out there are make-up artist must-haves, and which items you should be using to make sure it stays in place. Lets face it- you’ll be waking up incredibly early, and going to bed relatively late!

    Metallic Lips

    A soft metallic eyeshadow is the perfect formula for bridal eyes – not too shimmery, yet not too flat either. Opt for an all round neutral tone, but one that brings out the color of your eyes and enhances the brightness.

    This Stila Jewel Eye Shadow in Golden Topaz is the perfect blend of pigment, binder and pearl, leaving lids glamorous and glittering. It’s transparent talc delivers rich color, and the high levels of pearl provide a brilliant sparkle effect. Layer this up for the intensity you require, and it can be applied wet or dry too!

    Prime Time

    It’s a long day, and a long day of looking groomed at that! Make sure your make-up sits on your skin all day long, looking just as fresh as the first application. Prime with a hydrating and skin perfecting cream, such as the ColorScience Skin Brightening Face Primer SPF 20, which focuses on taming lines. It’s a yellow mousse which smoothes on like velvet and sets to absolute perfection. The yellow color hides red discoloration while the active ingredients promote the actual reduction of redness in the skin.

  6. A Fine Line

    From ceremony, to reception, to bed time, make sure your eyes are lined at all times! A jet black, striking eyeliner will add drama to your eyes without having to load up on dark, dramatic eyeshadows. Use a smudge-free, slim tip liner pen, such as the bareMineral Lash Domination Ink Eyeliner. Remember to practice before hand, you’ll need a steady hand on the big day (especially if you have bridal nerves!)

  7. Glow Girl

    Glow Girl

    Ensure skin is illuminated all day long with a shimmering lotion so you can get your glow on! Smoother your skin from head to toe with a luxurious cream, such as the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Lotion for Body. It’s subtle enough for first time use, as the lightweight self-tanning body moisturizer reveals a subtle, streak-free radiance within 3 hours of application. Delivers a fresh, natural glow.
