    I prefer the NYX over UD and for the price, you can’t beat it!

    @MsYankee:  urban decay setting spray! I use it every day and my face always looks flawless. Makeup brushes are essential for proper application too, my favorite brushes are from Sigma.

    Get the Urban Decay setting spray from Sephora. But for the money, I’d prefer the Sonia Kashuk brushes from Target.

    I think the setting spary is going to be really important for the longevity of your makeup. If you don’t go with a good setting spray – you may just need to blot and powder more often. That’s probably more of a personal preference. I’d go with the two brush sets and the UD setting spray.

    Real techniques brushing will make any makeup you use look awesome!

     

    Careful with powders, as you dont want one containing spf, so titanium dioxide/iron oxide as it will give you a white face (same with foundations).  Lucky for us brides, most cheaper products are actually better for this!!

     

    Best primer is MAC Paintpot in painterly.  I love it so much!!!!!

     

    For setting, you dont need a spray and powder, you can use one or the other but completely up to you.  I find that any brand spray is not particularly good.  Plus powder can stop you looking greasy (tip of my nose why you shine????)

     

    Lip liners, doesnt really matter what brand as most will do the job -lips are always the only thing that should need retouching so bring it with you on the day).  As long as it matches your lip colour rather than the lipstick. Unless you are having a red lip, in which case match the lipstick shade.

     

    I find that high end/low end clear mascara/brow ‘gel’s dont work.  You are better with a solid brow gel if you want staying power, or even use a hint of hair spray on your brush brush but let it dry out a bit first so it doesnt drip.

     

    good luck!!!
