Wedding Hair and Makeup Survival Guide

Wedding Hair and Makeup Survival Guide

Wedding season is upon us. Whether you’re the bride, part of the bridal party or an honored guest, you’ll need a few things to make it through the day. Many people remember to pack bobby pins and extra tissues but it’s easy to forget other wedding hair and makeup essentials in the rush of last-minute planning. Here is a quick list to make packing a little easier:

Between pictures, dancing and all those hugs, you’ll need a hairspray with strong hold to lock your style in place. Keep Bed Head Masterpiece Shine Hairspray on hand for quick touch-ups throughout the day. This hairspray has a humidity-resistant formula that provides the perfect hold for an outdoor wedding.

Don’t forget sunscreen, especially if the festivities are outdoors. Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen like EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen underneath your makeup. Its lightweight, oil-free formula won’t clog pores or irritate sensitive skin. When it comes time to reapply, dust Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Instant Mineral SPF 45 across your skin. The translucent powder will protect your complexion without messing up your makeup.

Your bag should also include long-lasting makeup essentials. Avoid raccoon eyes with water-resistant mascara like glo minerals GloWater Resistant Mascara. This volumizing mascara won’t budge until you’re ready to take it off. Be sure to grab a smudge-proof lip stain like jane iredale Lip Fixation so you won’t have to reapply your lip color again and again.

Finally, don’t sweat the small stuff! Keep jane iredale Facial Blotting Paper at the ready to absorb any excess oil. Made from 100% flax seed, these blotting papers mattify skin without disturbing your makeup.
