After months of planning, your Big Day has finally arrived, your packing your bag and sorting out your last few bits, now to make sure you have what you need for the actual day.
When your makeup is applied properly and professionally you shouldn’t really need to top up your makeup throughout the day. Many of my past brides and clients have even commented on how their makeup has lasted until 4am or even they have said their makeup lasted until the next day. But still it’s important to be prepared for that one tear to many so you can look fabulous all day And night. First two products up are non negotiable, that is a lipstick to top up and a powder.
Powder is simple, you shouldn’t have to use it, but sometimes we might feel a bit sweaty but no shine is actually come through, but we like to have it for the T-zone and upper lip. Powder doesn’t need to be applied all over the face as this will cause you to lose your blush, highlight and contour. So really it’s good to have incase.
The powders I recommend are any of these:
Charlotte tilbury flawless filter shade 2, this works for all skin tones https://www.charlottetilbury.com/ie/product/airbrush-flawless-finish-2-medium
Laura mercier translucent powder, I’ve linked the travel size only because it last forever and it’s space saving. I’ve used this product 13yrs now since i became a makeup artist and it’s never let me down. Discount code inuse for 20%off is rosieconlf https://www.lookfantastic.com/laura-mercier-translucent-loose-setting-powder-travel-size-9.3g-variou
Mac prep&prime translucent powder, again a makeup artists favourite, same use code rosieconlf for 20%off https://www.lookfantastic.com/mac-prep-prime-transparent-finishing-powder/11471896.html

There are many different things that you might want to add in there but there’s a few of what I recommend. And I add to it occasionally. You might like to invest in a few staple makeup pieces, and really to have nice makeup on the 2nd day of the wedding.
I link a few ideas, but really once you invest in a few key products they will last you years and you’ll Avoid making the mistake of spending here and there and not really having anything that you’ll use. Please of your a client of mine please contact me and I’ll do my best to answer your questions or if your need a recommendation.
