Top 10 Makeup MUST HAVES For Your Wedding

10. Mineral Makeup
Mineral makeup simply sweeps onto your face and gives you a fantastic natural glow (along with GREAT coverage!) It makes the skin look stunning because the minerals reflect light off the skin like millions of little mirrors. You'll look flawless in your wedding photos! This product is known for photographing very well.

9. Dramatic, Sultry, Ooo Laa Laa Lashes
It is so decadent to wear false eyelashes. Fake eyelashes make your eyes POP. Cosmetics website e.l.f. cosmetics, as seen in InStyle Magazine has their Dramatic Lash Kit on sale for only $1! (When applying these make sure the center of the lash is right at your pupil).
Our pick:

8. Coverage for All Your Little Stresses
Sorry to tell you this sweetie but you'll probably be stressed out right before your wedding. The worst part? It might start to show on your skin! Now that would be a real shame. That's why you should invest in the cover up the pros use (me included!). Our pick:

Paula Dorf Total Camouflage Concealer, Sand/Nude
icon
Two shades are better than one imperfection. Mix the two shades of Total Camouflage on the back of your hand, blending the dark and light hues for an exact skintone match. For best results, apply with the Camouflage Brush.


7. Bring On the Babelicious Bronzer
It would be horrifying to hear that your guests were calling you "Casper, the friendly ghost bride" at your wedding! We all need a little help in the pigment department sometimes (at least you do if you're as fair skinned as I am!). I suggest that you start experimenting with a bronzer so you know what works for you BEFORE the wedding! You've all seen starlets like Jessica Simpson and J Lo go self tanner crazy before a red carpet event. You don't want to be an ORANGE bride!! Bronzer is a nice (non-permanent) way to give you a great bridal glow. Try e.l.f.'s Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder for only a $1!
Our pick:

Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder
A touch of sunshine to warm up every complexion with its soft and silky texture for a beautiful and natural glow.


6. Luscious Red Lips
Your perfect pout should have a tinge of red this season. It was THE HOT COLOR at New York Fashion Week! And think of the contrast with your white bridal gown... WOW! You will be stunning. But let me warn you to PROCEED WITH CAUTION! Red lipstick is SCARY! It's the stuff you snuck out of your Mom's makeup bag and went crazy with when you were 5! (You probably remember her scrubbing it off you!) There are sooo many shades of red that you really want to get it right when it comes to your wedding look. This is definitely a reason to visit the beauty department for a color test!

DuWop Realipstick Classic Lipstick, Sophia

What it is... Classic, full coverage lipstick with the most modern ingredients and colors. What it does... Moisturizes the lips while giving velvety, full coverage


5. Protection from the Hot Hot Sun
You can only hope that the gorgeous sunshine is a guest on your wedding day. But when you're outside smiling for the cameras you need to make sure that you are protected against its harmful rays. Walking into your reception radiating instead of radiant is not the look you're going for. Becoming a blotchy, sun burnt bride is totally avoidable!
Our pick:

DDF Organic Sunblock, SPF 30

For sensitive skin and those who prefer physical barrier sun protection. Zinc and Titanium Dioxide refract both UVA and UVB rays. Contains DDF Redox Antioxidant Complex™ for enhanced free radical protection. Proper use may reduce the chance of pre-mature aging of the skin and skin cancer. Suitable for all skin types.


4. Plump, Kissable Lips
So you're going for the sultry siren lips with the perfect shade of rouge. But you want your lips to be EXTRA kissable on your wedding day. Try a lip plumper! I had one of my girlfriends try mine the other day after we had lunch and she actually called me an hour later wanting to know what it was called and where I got it! Well, I'm going to tell you... It's LipFusion Micro-Injected Collagen Lip Plump. It's the only lip plumper that puts actual collagen into your lips... with NO NEEDLES! It doesn't sting or burn. Tons of Hollywood celebs (like Desperate Housewives' Marcia Cross, One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush and Gossip Girl's Blake Lively) are jumping on the Lip Fusion bandwagon. You can too!
Our pick:

LipFusion Color Shine Micro-Injected Collagen Lip Plump, Sweeticon
Many products claim "collagen' as a featured ingredient when, in truth, the collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the skin. LipFusion harnesses the clinically proven plumping and hydrating powers of new, patented marine collagen-filling spheres™, a technology that dehydrates the collagen molecule into tiny microspheres, in order to penetrate and then search for the body's natural water to re-hydrate creating a beautifully natural, full-out pout.


3. Dewy Fresh Cheeks
Look for liquid-based formulas that you dot on your cheeks and lips for a sheer, stained finish. I just love how soft and feminine you look when you put it on.

NARS Color Wash For Lips and Cheeks, Modestyicon

Color Wash can be applied over foundation, powder and Makeup Primer or on bare skin for equally excellent results.


2. Magical Metallics
Even on your wedding day, it is perfectly acceptable to add a little shine to your exposed skin... especially once the lights dim and the reception gets underway. I'll bet he can hardly wait to get the honeymoon started! Metallic shadows are perfect for giving your skin an elegant moon kissed glow.
