Wedding Makeup Buys


With the wedding now under three weeks away some of the finer details are having to be arranged/sorted. Something which I was on a mission to get done a couple of weeks ago was a few make up pieces to keep my makeup lasting all day and looking its best. I'm having my makeup done by the beautiful Jessica, who is a YouTuber and Blogger and have followed for a couple of years now which is really exciting! I have my trial this Wednesday, which will be fantastic so we can work on the look for the day. I can not stress the importance enough on having trials for your big day, whether it be for hair or makeup. I had my hair trial a few weeks ago and have now decided that I don't want that particular hairstyle, I would of hated to look back on photos regretting that style!!

So, as I'm still yet to have my trial, I have just bought a few pieces to keep me going through the day. First up is the Benefit POREfessional primer (£24), which reduces the appearance of pores beautifully. This silky lotion really does set me up to have a good makeup day and is soon becoming apart of my daily routine, it just does exactly what it claims to do but does fade a little throughout the day.

Which leads my onto my next item, the Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray (£20). This oil free spray is applied after you have finished your makeup (or can be used to set different layers of makeup), I have to admit that it felt weird putting a spray over makeup that you have just done!! But this spray helps to keep you make-up looking its best all day (or night!), it can be applied to freshen your makeup too.

Lastly is a lip product, Urban Decay's NAKED Lipgloss in the colour Rule34 (£14), which is a lovely natural colour with no shimmer. I was advised by the lady at the Urban Decay counter to avoid shimmery lip glosses as they don't look good on camera so recommended this beauty. The lipgloss applies well and wears nicely, what more could I want?!

I would like to buy a concealer but I'm waiting for my trial with Jessica before making any purchases. 

What makeup tips would you give to any bride to be?
