How to Pack your Traincase for Bridal Work

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
    • Garb
    • Prism


  • 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

Eyeshadow Primer:


Eyebrow Pencil:

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



  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara (Amazon) (Sephora)
  • Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black (inexpensive alternative)  (Amazon)
    *Make sure to bring disposable mascara wands!

False Lashes:

Lipliner Pencil:


  • Bobbi Brown Artist Palette for Lips
    *You can bring different lipsticks, but you need 5-6 different colors:  pink, nude, peach, red, rose, plum.  You can then custom mix if needed



Setting Sprays:







  • MAC Fix+ Spray (Amazon) (eBay)
    This is for getting rid of cakey look
  • Model in a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray (Amazon) (eBay)
    This is for making the makeup last all day
