5 Bridal Makeup Must Haves For Your Big Day : Part Two

My first installment of bridal party makeup must haves got such a great response, I figured why not follow it up with 5 more of my favorites?!  I carry 3 trunks of products with me to every wedding, so it isn't hard to narrow it down to a total of 10 must haves...

A sliver of the makeup products I carry with me on a job. 

Here are my 5 additional product must haves before wedding bells start ringing...
#1.  NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation, $5.  I use these powders to set the liquid foundation on my brides.  I apply them right in the center of the face where no one wants to be shiny.  I use them dry with a small fluffy brush to apply under the eyes or I use triangle sponges (see #5) for larger areas of the face.  They can also be used wet!  




#2.  MAC Paint Pots, $20.  These are used on everyone! They are the first thing I apply to a clean dry eyelid.  They help to seal in the shadows and even out eyelid skin tone before applying shadow because they each have a slightly colored base to them.




These 4 beauties have 1 thing in common, I used ALL 5 of these products on each one of them!
(Can we talk about how CUTE their matching robes are the bride gave them all as gifts?!) 

#3.  Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeliners, $24.  These pencils glide on like butt-ah.  And have tremendous amounts of staying power.  Tears of joy from a bride, mother of the bride (and groom!), or bridesmaids are no match for these pencils.  They come in a huge variety of colors and I am in love with every single brown they offer.  Bourbon and Corrupt being two of my faves.

#4.  Sonia Kashuk Arch Alert Brow Kit, $10.  These colored brow waxes are a savior bc this small palette has a blonde, two shades of brown, and an auburn shade.  It keeps wacky runaway hairs in place while adding realistic color in spotty brows.  It also doesn't create harsh noticeable lines like pencils can do if not used correctly.  I use a slanted synthetic bristled eye brow brush to apply this product with.

My bride Kristen here is also wearing #1, 2, and 5 from my Part 1 post.

#5.  Triangle sponges, $6  You might think this not newsworthy, but hang on to your garter belt.  I use these on EVERY face, especially when using them as guides for eye makeup and also to rub in everyone's foundation and for applying pressed powder (hygiene reasons too!). They;re small and latex free (bc you'd be surprised how many people are allergic to latex).  I buy these by the bags!!

Thank you again to Kristen's bridal party I recently worked with who allowed me to snap a few photos of them and their finished makeup looks!  These smiling faces and sweet souls are the reason I continue to love my job.
