Weddings are exciting but you know what’s not? Worrying about whether or not your makeup is going to get you through a tearful ceremony, a night on the dance floor, or if your lipstick is going to come off on your brand new significant other. That wouldn’t make for great wedding pictures, am I right? That’s why I’ve together a list of the best wedding day makeup products – so you can get through your big day looking fabulous no matter what!
For foundation you obviously want to look flawless all day/night so I recommend using Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer + Hourglass Immaculate Foundation. Aside from the fact that this foundation absorbs 75% of its weight in oil (so no oil induced makeup breakdown here!) when used together these products give you an almost waterproof finish!! I’ve gone through 95-100 degree days with NO issue and when I blot nothing comes up. It’s amazing!
Obviously weddings are an emotional time with everything going on so I think we can all agree that tears will be shed at some point or another. To make sure you’re not sporting raccoon eyes in all your photos reach for waterproof and longest formulas such as MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Matic shadow pencils, NARS mascara (either formula – they’re both equally as bulletproof), and Inglot Gel Eyeliner. And don’t forget to use a good primer before doing your eye makeup for added insurance! I like the NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base because it locks my eyeshadow in place like nothing else!
And last but not least I think it goes without saying that you’re going to be doing a lot of kissing on your wedding day. Between your new significant other, family members, etc you’re going to want to make sure that your lipstick stays where it should! Using a lip liner all over your lips in place of lipstick is a great option but you could also reach for a liquid lipstick formula that dries down to a matte finish since they tend it give the best long wear without transferring. OCC Lip Tars are my first choice for long wear lipstick because they’re so pigmented and they come in a wide range of colors. Lime Crime Velvetine Liquid Lipstick is also a great option since it is incredibly long wearing as well. You can’t go wrong with either!
