Planning a destination wedding, I cannot imagine. While it sounds like a good time to just go away and have your family and friends enjoy a beautiful paradise somewhere, there are a lot of extras that need to be thought about.
Most resorts have lovely spas and hair and makeup services can be done all right there. Now knowing me, my first thought would be what kind of makeup are they using? Is it sanitary and is my skin going to react to it? There’s a nightmare for the bride to be! Personally, even if I was not a makeup artist, I would like to consult a makeup artist or makeup counter to see what they would recommend for me to buy in order to apply my own makeup.
So brides if you have that destination wedding coming and you are looking for a kit for your bridal makeup look no further!
Here is what I would recommend a bride should get for her travel makeup kit. With a warm climate and extreme humidity you want something with staying power.
Face. Moisturizer is a must especially if your skin got a little too much love from the sun in the days before. An oil control primer. Mac has a great oil control primer.
Foundation. Makeup Forever HD Foundation. Works for all skin types and absolutely one of the best to photograph. This can be purchased at Sephora.
Setting Powder. Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. It is baby fine and it sets everything! This can be purchased at Sephora.
Bronzer. This will give you a nice warm glow and can also double as a contour. One of favs is Mac Matte Bronze and Mac Trace Gold. This can be purchased at any Mac Counter or Mac Store.
Highlighter – Too Faced Candlelight. This can be purchased at Sephora.
Blush. Nars Orgasim blush is gorgeous. It is highly pigmented and the colour works for almost every skin tone and gives you a glow with a little bit of sheen. This can be purchased at Sephora.
Eyes. Prime Eyes with Urban Decay Shadow Primer. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. This is the best in my opinion and you will use every colour in here after your wedding. The combination that I love is Crease/lower lash line – Tease, Outer V – Busted, Lid – Chopper, Inner Corner/Brow Bone – Booty Call. Eye Liner for upper Lash line, Upper and Lower Water Line – Smolder by Mac. Urban Decay products can be purchased at Sephora and Mac can be purchased at Mac.
Mascara – Water Proof Better Than Sex by Too Faced. This can be purchased at Sephora.
Brows – the colour that best suits you anything from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This can be purchased at Sephora.
Lips – Faux by Mac. This can be purchased at any Mac Counter or Mac Store.
Setting Spray – Urban Decay All Nighter. This can be purchased at Sephora.
I hope this helps you brides to be planning to go away! Happy Makeuping!
