So we want to help you pack your makeup kit with all the right essentials to keep your bridal makeup looking fresh and flawless.
It’s time to beach proof your bridal makeup!
Prime Time: The most important step in keeping a fresh and flawless look in your makeup application will be to have the right face and eye primer. This primer needs to be suitable for your skin and protect you makeup application from the sun, sand and salty breezes. It also needs to be tough enough to last all day and into the evening. We are in love with this face and eye primer Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer travel size.
Keeping it Light: Finding a foundation that covers well and is lightweight letting your skin breath and look natural is your #1 priority for a beach wedding. We think the clever optical blurring powders in the No7 Airbrush Away Foundation give a velvet yet radiant finish, like your complexion has been placed in to soft focus.
Brow Power: With so much white sand, sunshine and your beautiful white dress the face needs as much love and attention as possible. Brows give your face a finished look and we think this long wearing product Milani Stay Put Brow Color is just the right product at an affordable cost. Lightweight and easy to apply and it fits snug as a bug in your mini beach bridal kit.
Luxe Lashes: No beach bridal makeup look would be the same without luxe long lash mascara that can withstand salty breezes and maybe a few tears. We are gaga over this new No Smudge Mascara from Bobbi Brown that is small enough to fit into your kit and big enough on your lashes to wow your guests.
Lasting Lips: The truth is keeping your lips lasting all day through any wedding can be a challenge but with the right products and a little pouch sized lip gloss to freshen up throughout the day your lips can look luscious all day long. Even after the beach wedding smooch! We are loving this Lip Sculpting Pencil from Mally, the double ended pencil lets you line your lips and then fill them in for a fuller long lasting look. Top that off with your favorite lip gloss and you are set for a beautiful wedding day! We love this gloss from Nars.
