I did! Here’s what I used:


Primer – Laura Mercier hydrating primer

Concealer – Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage concealer

Foundation – The Ordinary‘s serum foundation + Bare Minerals original loose powder foundation

Blush – Milani Baked Blush

Bronzer/contour – Bare Minerals solid bronzer

Setting powder – Makeup Revolution Banana baking powder

Eyeshadow primer – Nyx

Eyeshadow – Urban Decay Reloaded palette

Eyeliner – Stila Stay all Day Waterproof liquid liner

Eyelash glue – Kiss iEnvy

Mascara – L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof

Eyebrows – WUNDER2 Wunderbrow gel

Lips – Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink lipstick

Setting spray – Skindinavia‘s “Bridal” setting spray


We got married on the hottest day of the year thus far (temps were upper 90s and it was very humid), and my makeup lasted through sweat and tears from 2:00pm until I washed it off around midnight.

Bumping this because I’m curious too – I just had a friend/MUA do my makeup for my engagement party, and while it was beautiful (he does glam makeup), the more I look at the photos, the less they look like me, so I’m contemplating doing my own makeup.

Bronzer and Blush – physicians formula butter bronzer/blush 

Highlight – actually not sure yet, Wet N Wild MegaGlow probably 

Eyeshadow – UD born to Run palette, some cream glitter shadow from HardCandy

Lashes – not sure, either ardelle individuals or maybe some half lashes 

Brows – Covergirl micro fine brow pencil, Essence brow gel

Lipstick – Mix of maybelline super stay crayon and a Milani matte one
