I’m a bridal makeup artist, so this is my specialty 😉
Bridal makeup is a particularly finnicky thing because it has to last all day, photograph well in all lighting conditions, look great in pictures, and look great in person.
Here are some basic recommendations:
if your skin hasn’t been properly cleansed, toned, and moisturized, your makeup won’t last like it should.
look for something silicone based (it’s water resistant)
one of my favorites is the Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation
you’ll also want to pay attention to the ingredients. Steer clear of titanium dioxide, high levels of SPF, and zinc oxide. They don’t tend to do too well with flash.
I also love Make Up For Ever HD!
I’m partial to the MAC pro longwear concealers. If you’re willing to splurge a bit, the NARS radiant creamy concealers are fantastic.
4. Setting Powder
RCMA no color powder is my absolute favorite.
It’s a pro product, but you can still get it without a pro card. It’s CHEAP too. like $10 and will last you years. Make sure to set under the eyes and all over the face.
5. Setting Spray
SO IMPORTANT. You’ll probably be crying. At some point you’ll cry. Setting spray keeps your makeup in place. You can even spray this between layers of makeup (spray, foundation, spray, concealer, spray, powder, spray spray spray)
I love the Urban Decay setting spray, but if you want the same thing for a bit cheaper, Motives carries the same product in different packaging
