Wedding Day Must-Haves

19 May

It’s wedding season, wether you like it or not! OK, fine, most people like it except for a few cray-crays… and boys. We recently helped our friend Anna plan out her wedding day makeup, as well as discussing what we were going to do for the bridesmaids. We realized that it might be good to compile a list of wedding day must-haves, as well as some fun kits made for the big day.

Let’s start out with the kits!

Urban Decay Urban Bride

We don’t really get the whole marshmallow powder in this – it would make more sense to come with some eyeshadow… or blush… or even a foundation. You know, something for a complete look. And why why why why why why isn’t the mascara waterproof!? Urban Decay just released a waterproof formula (Cannonball) this week! Poor planning. Anyway, here’s what it comes with: Razor Sharp Ultra-Definition Finishing Powder, Eyeshadow Primer Potion (full-sized), Supercurl Curling Mascara, Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Midnight Cowboy, All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray and Marshmallow Sparkling Lickable Body Powder.

Too Faced The Blushing Bride Beauty Collection

This kit contains a G&S favorite – the Romantic Eye collection! This is probably the better kit because it’s more portable since it has a bag instead of a weird box and it comes with so may options for the eyes with this palette. It also has Lash Injection Mascara, Beauty Insurance Kit (includes Shadow Insurance, Primed and Poreless and Lip Insurance), Glamour Gloss in Barely Legal and a Look of Love makeup bag.

Items every bride should have on her wedding day:

Waterless mascara – Even if you don’t think you’re going to cry, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Oil absorbing sheets – If you don’t want to keep piling powder on, you can use these to soak up excess oil even when you’re wearing makeup. A favorite of Pants’ is the Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets.

Makeup setting spray – You’ll want your makeup to last ALL day. A setting spray is a must. Urban Decay’s All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray will ensure that your makeup will stay all day and all night.

Concealer – Like it or not, all of the prep leading up to the wedding can be a stressful time.  Blemishes happen. A flawless face on the big day is a must so concealer is a must.  A great concealer is Laura Mercier’s Secret Camoflauge.
