It’s that time of year again when the weather starts to warm up and wedding season is upon us. It’s very common for most weddings to occur between the months of April and October; with the wedding season hitting us in full swing since the start of the pandemic, many have been waiting years for their big day.
It seems a lot of people don’t think about how much pressure there is, especially for the bride, to look perfectly flawless on their wedding day. All eyes are on every aspect of you. Your dress, your hair, your makeup, etc. So here are a few beauty products that can help everyone with an upcoming wedding feel confident and beautiful. I will include some higher- and lower-end products to cover the bases.
- Let’s start with a good base.
The Pacifica Glow Baby Vitamin C Booster Serum is a fantastic base for someone who wants a dewy, glowy look to their makeup. It has the perfect tackiness to help your primer and foundation stick better.
- Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation will give you a nice full coverage look without feeling too heavy on your skin. There is a misconception that in order to have a full coverage foundation, it needs to be very thick. No one is going to want that feeling on their big day.
I chose a higher-end setting powder for this list because it is one of the most important steps for making wedding makeup last all day long. You are going to want to use a quality setting powder to ensure that your makeup doesn’t smear or run before the day’s end.
Keeping a neutral eye look is very common for weddings. This palette has the perfect mix of neutral matte and shimmer shadows for anybody’s taste.
- Velour Lashes – Effortless. False eyelashes are amazing for making your eyes pop and pulling your whole makeup look together. These lashes are a nice middle-ground price with amazing reviews.
Having a lip product that you know will last all day is another very important step to makeup. This product is loved by many and you are able to find it at any drug store for about $8.
Remember that at the end of the day, what matters is that you feel good, even if you choose not to wear any makeup at all. Use whatever will keep you comfortable so you can focus on what matters: enjoying yourself!
