Spring is finally here, and so is the official beginning of Bridal Season. With that comes an increase in bookings for makeup artists who specialize in making brides their most beautiful for this momentous occasion. For those who choose to do their own wedding makeup, the search begins for new and exciting products to help achieve professional-looking results. Whether you’re a pro artist with a busy wedding calendar or a bride who prefers to go it alone, here are some of our bridal makeup must-haves.
Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light Primer has a lightweight texture that feels weightless, not oily or “slippy” on the skin. This unique formula hydrates, plumps and brightens the complexion while diminishing the appearance of pores and fine lines. It creates a smooth canvas for foundation application while also helping it stay put for longer wear.
For brides with extremely oily skin, Make-up International SuperMatte AntiShine can help keep it under control. Just use the tiniest amount in the t-zone area, or wherever needed, tapping it in gently until it sets. This transparent gel is also great for grooms who tend to get shiny but are not keen on wearing makeup or powder for their big day.
Make-up Atelier Waterproof Foundation offers medium to full coverage with a flawless, naturally luminous finish that’s also sweat-proof and long-wearing. This pro-favorite foundation is available in a wide range of shades and undertones for your beautifully diverse bridal clientele.
Viseart Seamless Eye Primer has a colorless formula that creates a smooth canvas on the lid and locks down eyeshadow so it stays put throughout the ceremony, reception, and the after-party. The Viseart Bridal Satin Eyeshadow Palette contains 12 shades in neutral to rich color tones so brides can go from a “day ceremony” look to evening glamour in a heartbeat. This smooth and blendable formula also has a delicate shimmer for a romantic gleam of sophistication.
Senna Slipcover Cheeky Blush Palette has 10 colors for creating the perfect flush for the blushing bride-to-be and all of her bridesmaids. This formula applies like a cream and dries down to a soft, powder finish for a truly natural look.
RMS Beauty Luminizer X Quad is a pocket-size palette with 4 shimmering creams made from natural and organic ingredients. Use them alone or mix them to customize just the right glow for each unique bride.
Ben Nye All-For-One Lip Studio Color Palette has all the necessary lipstick shades you need, from nude to deep violet, in one slim palette. Perfect for when you’re making up a large bridal party or for the bride who likes to change her look a few times during her big day. Each shade is also available as a single lipstick–perfect for carrying in a touch-up bag.
Treat the bride to Lash Star Beauty Visionary Lashes, made with vegan mink hairs that are layered to create a lush, multidimensional effect. The flexible cotton band allows them to fit any eye shape with maximum comfort. They also come in a beautiful box which you’ll want to keep for storage because, with proper care, they’re reusable up to 30 times. Apply with latex-free Visionary Lash Adhesive.
Visionary Lash Flares are also multidimensional, with 20 individual hairs making up each cluster. Each box comes with three sizes to tailor the lash application to each bride’s desire. They come in the same beautiful box, and with proper care, can be reused up to 10 times.
Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray gives brides the confidence of knowing they’ll look beautiful all day. The cry-proof, sweat-proof, and kiss-proof Bridal formula was created with the needs (and long hours) of brides in mind. Just a couple of mists set makeup for up to 16 hours, not to mention that it gives them one less thing to stress out about so they can enjoy their most special day!
