Wedding day beauty is so special!  It’s literally the day of ending a chapter and starting a new one.  I love when brides look enhanced and ultra glam – radiating throughout their day.  Since it’s an all-day ordeal, it is very important to have long lasting makeup with an emphasis on the application process.  Here are a few of the key products I used to achieve the bride’s look:

  • Primer/Setting Spray: Smashbox Finish Primer Water
    • Use this spray before applying and makeup as well as after all the makeup has been applied.  Be sure to fan the spray so it can really stick on the skin.
  • Foundation: Lancome Ultra Long Wear Foundation
    • Apply with a damp beauty blender and set under eyes with a powder and setting spray.
  • Eyeshadow: Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
    • This is the ultimate palette for all skin tones.  The berry tones and nudes really brighten the eyes and add dimension.
  • Highlight: Ofra Illuminating Highlight Blush Trio 
    • I’ve been so into this highlight – it really gives that JLo glow.  Apply at the top of the cheek bones, cupids bow, bridge of the nose and collar bones/top of shoulders.
  • Lip: Dose Truffle
    • Glosses may look great for the photos but if you don’t have an onsite MUA on deck then I would opt for a long lasting matte lip.

I can’t stress how important and what a game changer setting spray is!  Put your bridesmaids on duty and make sure they have a travel size on hand.  Xx

I am such a sucker for versatile products.  I recently received an Influenster box with a plethora of Lancome goodies.

  • Camouflage concealer
    • The color I received was a shade too dark for me BUT I still made good use of it.  I used it on a client who was the perfect shade and it sat so well under her eyes.  The product is great coverage and doesn’t wrinkle.
  • 24 Hour Foundation
    • This foundation is true to its name – IT LASTS.  It’s a pretty thick formula with a slight matte finish.  Ideal for a full coverage kind of day with little to no movement.
  • Lipgloss
    • I LOVE this lipgloss.  It shines so beautifully in the sun and really goes well with my caramel skin tbh
  • Liquid highlight
    • Not my favorite highlight but I applaud the design for the convenience and efficiency.
