Bridal Beauty

Hi Gals,

So not every bride is able to afford her own make up artist for her wedding day.

Fear not, with the right cosmetics, a steady hand, some YouTube advice and plenty of practice, you might just be able to do the job yourself.

I have pulled together some products that might help you along your way.

In fact, even if you do have a make up artist on the day, a look like this would be good to perfect for your day before/day after celebrations too for example.

I am all about the dewy make up finish, but staying power will be required for a long day.

The NOTE Cosmetics Detox & Protect Foundation €13.95, is a silky formulation suited to all skin types and offers amazing buildable coverage.

Up next definition - MegaGlow Contour Kit €5.95 (a bronzer and highlight) from wet n wild has you covered for the ultimate in cheekbone definition.

Also from wet n wild, Colour Icon Blush in shade ‘Apri-Cot in the Middle’ €3.95 is a peachy blush suited to most complexions.

All brides want to glow on their day, so try some Sleek Barekissed Illuminator €11.49 in shade Cuba for a luminous finish.

All eyes will be on you, so now to focus on the eyes, again from Sleek, check out the Sleek’s I Divine Storm Palette €10.99 play around with the shades, but there are some stunning taupe and greys in there to try out.

For extra definition to your eyes, you cannot be without some falsies, check out the Kiss Blooming Lashes in Lash Lily €7.95.

These lashes are amazing for brides -soft, full, flirty and beautifully natural!

Brows are a major statement these days, you don't want to overdo it though, remember these photos will be around for many a year to come.

The Kiss Beautiful Brows Kit €10 contains brow powder, ideal for filling in any gaps and creating an arch, while the wax keeps any fly away hairs in place.

Best to play around with this one, to get the brows completely on fleek.

Now for the lips, preferably one that won't budge- NOTE’s Mattemoist Lipgloss €7.95 in ‘Matkiss’.

This pretty pink shade is super wearable and doesn’t budge once applied, a perfect choice for any bride.

Images of all the products are included here too.

Available from major pharmacies and departments stores.

Much love and happy planning,
