You can’t beat having your hair and makeup done by a pro for your wedding day! Beautiful bridal makeup needs to be flawless, perfectly suited and long-lasting and for all of that, you not only need expert skills but incredible products too.
With over 20 years in the business, award-winning bridal makeup artist and hair stylist Pam Wrigley has discovered the very best makeup products to create totally gorgeous wedding looks.
From the dream mascara that won’t budge (even when the tears are flowing!) to the perfect blusher for a natural, dewy glow, here are Pam’s top bridal makeup products that she cannot live without:
8 Bridal Makeup Products You Can’t Live Without
Clinique Lash Power Mascara
This is so much more that your average waterproof mascara, which is exactly what you need for your big day.
Cry proof, sleep proof, clump proof and completely smudge proof – an absolute must for the bridal makeup kit!
Cosmetics à la Carte Skin Tint
Getting the right shade of foundation is essential for makeup every day and even more so for your wedding day, as colours that are even slightly off will be glaringly obvious in photos.
Cosmetics à la Carte Skin Tints come in a vast range of shades, unlike your standard foundation brands and give a wonderful natural dewy glow.
Lift your cheekbones and add a pop of colour to your cheekbones for that that gorgeous blushing bride look, with Bobby Brown Cream Blush.
This is Pam’s favourite blusher to use for a subtle, easy-to-blend flush.
One of the secrets to long-lasting eye makeup is using a great eye primer. Don’t use your regular face one – it’s important that you get one that is specifically designed for eyes for best results.
Pam loves Inglot Eyeshadow Keeper for crease-free eyeshadow that stays put all day long.
MAC always comes in at the top for amazing colour ranges and their famous Paint Pots offer just that.
They are a little heavy, so it’s best to use a light hand with this product, but one of the best things about them is how buildable they are. Build your chosen shade up gradually for the perfect look.
Cosmetics à la Carte Shine Illuminator
It’s easy to overdo highlighter, so easy does it! Adding just a touch of shimmer on the tops of your cheekbones though can make a huge difference to your overall look.
Cosmetics à la Carte Shine Illuminator gives you that healthy glow without creating a glare on camera.
Just as with the eye makeup, if you want your face to stay on all day long you absolutely must invest in a great primer.
Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer is fabulous for oily skin, keeping excess shine at bay and disguising pores.
If you’ve got dry skin that needs a little bit of extra TLC, Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer is the one for you!
Deeply moisturising, this wonder-product leaves your skin looking and feeling hydrated, plumped up and fresh.
