What To Pack In Your Bridal Beauty Bag
Here’s what freelance makeup artist Shirley Simpson recommends you stash in your bag or clutch to keep your makeup looking picture perfect all day long
Shirley says your first beauty bag must-have is: “an old-school powder puff and some pressed translucent setting powder (non-talc).”
Foundation or concealer
Ensure your base always looks ace by toting a small pottle of foundation or a tube of concealer around with you during your photo session.
Shirley recommends products that are small and easy to carry.
“One that’s not fussy, or that you can dip your finger in and touch up flushes or any under eye issues,” she says.
Pack a few cotton buds to address any stray smudges of mascara or southbound eyeshadow, Shirley says.
Better still, choose reusable cotton buds like the Eco-Friendly Reusable Forever Ear Buds, $30, which are crafted from medical grade silicone meaning they can be used then washed time and time again.
Lipstick or lip gloss
Longwearing, preferably, as you’ll be locking lips with your beloved multiple times both in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes.
A multi-purpose product
“Find a neutral pottle of convertible colour, one that you could use on cheeks, lips and eyes to freshen up your look without fussing around with makeup brushes,” Shirley says.
Try RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek, $61, in the shade Demure, a soft pink rose with a hint of mauve that screams “blushing bride”.
