Happy Wednesday! Today I am going to share with you five beauty essentials you need for your wedding day. I also thought this post would be perfect timing since the Sephora VIB sale is right around the corner and you can snag 15%-20% off these products!
First off I will say I am definitely no makeup artist but I have tried and used all these products and I think they are amazing. These five wedding day makeup essentials will also come in handy for your engagement photos too. I want to keep this post short and sweet so lets start.
First up we have one of my all time favorite products, LAURA MERCIER Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I love using this powder on a daily basis. The reason I think this is an essential is because it is long wearing and helps keep your foundation and concealer stay set all day, even in the hot summer weather. Another reason this powder makes the list is its formula will not cause any flashback in your photos. Using products that do not create flashback is super important, you do not want to look ghostly in any of your wedding day pictures.
The next product I am going to talk about is TOO FACED, Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara. It is pretty obvious why you would want to use a waterproof mascara on your wedding day, you don’t want any smudging and you want it to last if you find yourself getting a little emotional. I love this mascara’s formula, it is sweat proof and has an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats, and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. It is the perfect wedding day mascara go to!
The third product I think is a must have is the BOSCIA, Clear Complexion Blotting Linens. There are lots of different blotting papers out there but I specifically chose this one because it does not disturb your makeup. So you want to make sure that your blotting papers will soak up any oil and shine but not affect the look of your makeup.
Next on the list is URBAN DECAY, All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. This spray is weightless and will give your makeup some serious staying power. Make sure you keep your makeup looking like it was just applied all day with this spray . It is also good for all temperatures, no melting off makeup here.
Last but not least is our final product which is KAT VON D, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. This lipstick is high pigment, light weight, matte finish and most importantly long wear. It comes in 42 shades so you know there is color for everyone. You can feel confident in this liquid lipstick that it will look great on your wedding day. I also suggest bringing your own lipstick when you get your makeup done so you can have the right shade to do any touch ups later on that you may need.
I should also mention most of these products come in a travel or mini size making them great options to fit into your wedding day clutch or emergency wedding kit.
