For some girls it’s shoes, others love chocolate.
My BIGGEST addiction is makeup!
I just LOVE going to the makeup counters and looking at all the new products, having the artists create a new look for me when I’m going out with my girls on the town, or splurging (SHHH! Don’t tell my hubby!)
But when it comes to makeup for your wedding it becomes quite intimidating!
You want to be a “vision in white” not, “pasty in white” or even worse… “trashy in white!”
Create a look that is going to make your hubby-to-be exclaim…VA VA VA VOOM!!!
Here Are My Top 10 Makeup MUST HAVES For Your Wedding:
The Secret of the Stars… Mineral Makeup
Check out this genius product out at a Laura Mercier counter. Mineral makeup simply sweeps onto your face and gives you a fantastic natural glow (along with GREAT coverage!) claireformulasale 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.
Dramatic, Sultry, Ooo Laa Laa Lashes
It is so decadent to wear false eyelashes. When I was in the Miss Canadian Universe Pageant (YES, I was a pageant babe at one point in my life!) all the girls from around Canada just swore by false eyelashes! They made our eyes POP when we were on stage. They will do the same for you! (And it won’t cost you an arm and a leg) Cosmetics website E.L.F (Eyes.Lips.Face. Cosmetics) 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)
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 wiseloaded (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 Charlize Theron 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!
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!
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!). It’s Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage concealer. I’m not the only one who believes in the magic of this concealer, it was featured in the Fall 2007 edition of InStyle Weddings. That means another visit to the makeup counter to pick up this little gem… oh darn!
