Products Used

This will add all products to wishlist or cart

It is definitely overwhelming trying to figure out what items are good to have in your makeup kit, so I have provided a list of items that I think are key in creating different bridal looks.  Now I realize everyone’s budget is different, and wears different makeup products, so use this list simply as a guide, not the makeup bible ;)

Face Primer:


  • Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer  (for under eye circles)  (Makeup Geek Store)
  • Coastal Scents Camouflage Concealer Palette  (for blemishes) (Amazon) (eBay)


  • Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation  (you need lightest shade, darkest, and 2 in between)*You need to ask the bride what foundation she normally wears- if she likes her foundation, you may want to use hers just to prevent any chance of breakouts (Amazon) (eBay)


Contour Powder:

  • MAC Contour Powders or any pressed face powders in 4 different shades
    Here’s the shades I have:


    • Strada
    • Harmony

  • Blush Palette (Makeup Geek Store)
    *You want a variety of shades including:  Peach, Pink, Rose, Plum

Cheek Highlighter:

  • MAC Cream Color Base in “Pearl”  (eBay)
    *Any cheek highlighter will do- you need a champagne colored one for light skin, and a golden color for medium to dark skin

  • MAC Eyebrow Pencil (eBay)
    You need 3 different colors:  Lingering, Strut, and Spiked  (basically a taupe, brown, and dark brown color)

False Lashes:
