Essential Beauty Products for Your Wedding Day

Essential Beauty Products for Your Wedding Day


You’ll want your makeup to stay in place from ceremony to reception, so it’s absolutely necessary to have a primer in your bridal beauty bag. You will be able to find a primer to suit your skin type, and some also give a gentle radiance to the skin.Foundation

Your foundation will depend on your skin type. However, most brides tend to purchase a liquid foundation, as they’re easily blended and give the most “natural” of finishes. Of course, if you happen to have a favourite, you need not change it on your big day.

The Estée Lauder Doublewear range is the ultimate stay in place foundation.

Make-up Sponge

I would recommend this as an essential item for applying foundation. When used properly (never use your sponge dry), your skin will look just flawless – perfect coverage with minimal product waste.Concealer

Think of your concealer as a multitasking product. When applied, it can brighten target areas, hide a blemish, or dark spot and even out your complexion. But when it comes to your wedding day, you may want a more heavy-duty one, meaning it will stay put from your first look to your evening reception. Whether you need concealer to cover dark circles or just hide a blemish, make sure this product is to hand.Blush & Bronzer

A quick flush of rose or soft pink can bring life back to your face. When choosing a bronzer, aim for one that’s at most two shades darker than your skin colour. Anything above two shades, and you run the risk of looking a little artificial.Setting Powder

It’s very important to set your concealer and foundation with a pressed or loose setting powder. This will ensure your make up lasts all day, it gives a soft focus effect to the skin and prevents shine for those all important photographs.Mascara

Whether you’re looking for length or a bit of volume, mascara is an absolute necessity in your makeup bag. Add a few swipes of your favourite before applying false lashes (if you plan to), and softly darken your lower lashes for an extra hit of definition.Eyeshadow Palette

Whatever eye look you’re going for, chances are you’re going to use an eyeshadow palette. Typically, brides aim for a natural eye look, combining shimmery champagnes and soft pinks with matte browns.Lipstick

Your lipstick serves as the finishing touch to your makeup look, so this is a staple in your bridal beauty bag.

I would advise that you purchase a matching lip liner to give definition and staying powder.


There’s absolutely nothing like a good highlighter to give you that lit-from-within glow.  It’s all about choosing the formula that’s right for you, whether it be a powder, balm, or liquid.
