Primer - Benefit Stay Flawless 15- Hour Primer (Approximately RM 115)
Primer is a vital step in providing a good base for your foundation and concealer. It functions to ensure long lasting makeup, protect the skin and prevent shines later in the day. After applying moisturiser on your face, use a primer that suits your skin colour. Your wedding is an all-day affair, and many brides and celebrities have credited Benefit Stay Flawless Primer for a flawless and matte finish that lasts till the end of the day!
Foundation - Chanel Perfection Lumiere Long-Wear Flawless Fluid (Approximately RM 170)
Chanel does it best when it comes to creating a flawless canvas on your skin! Though it is slightly pricier, this foundation really helps to minimize the appearance of pores and redness, leaving your skin looking smooth. The best part is having soft skin on camera! Tips for a professional finish - always use a sponge or brush when applying the Foundation!
Concealer - Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat – Radiant Touch (Approximately RM 140)
Concealers are important in concealing under-eye bags and circles. This concealer is special because it brightens the areas that are covered, and at the same time reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Gently apply it at the under-eye area and blend off any harsh edges. Tips – use this concealer on blemishes, pimples and other parts of your face for a brighter appearance!
Blusher - Bobbi Brown Pot Rogue For Lips & Cheeks (Approximately RM 90)
Long lasting, pigmented and easy to blend, this multitasking blusher works great on both lips and cheeks. It goes on sheer and you can build it in thin layers for a healthy and fresh look on your wedding day.
Eyeliner - Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner (Approximately RM 85)
With a silky finish of a gel and precision of a liquid liner, this waterproof and creamy eye liner is our top pick for a smudge-proof and crease-free look on your wedding day. Pencil and liquid liners are not always smudge-proof and may transfer to the skin especially after a long day with occasional tears of joy. Tips – pick a black liner that is suitable for all occassion and remember to fill in the gaps between your lashes for flawlessly flirty peepers!
Eyebrow Pencil - Benefit Instant Brow Pencil (Approximately RM 80)
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the eyebrows must be the frames! A good eyebrow pencil will fill in sparse eyebrows for a natural look. This eyebrow pencil by Benefit has a pencil on one end and a brush on the other to create a polished look. Tips – always pick colour that is a shade lighter than your hair.
Eyeshadow - Naked3 Palette- Urban Decay (Approximately RM 190)
Featuring twelve beautiful rose-hued neutrals, from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with red microglitters this palette will provide a matte, pearly and glimmering metallic finish that work best for photography sessions. Tips – enhance the shape of your eyes by applying the darker shade on the outer ends of the eyes, and applying brighter, lighter shades as you work towards the inner lids.
Highlighter / Blusher - Laura Mercier ‘Pink Mosaic’ Shimmer Bloc (RM 132)
We have picked the ‘Pink Mosaic’ for a shimmery pink taupe look with a hint of natural colour and light on your wedding day. We like it because this specially baked formula has light-reflecting properties that blends well with the skin for a natural glow, without being too frosty or metallic. Tips – apply highlighters to brighten the inner corners of the eyes and cheek.
Fake Eyelashes - Sephora Collection False Eye Lashes (Mainstay) (Approximately RM 35)
We have picked a thicker version of Sephora’s false eye lashes for the glamourous touch to the wedding look that we like. Whether you are up for a natural day look or a sultry and dramatic look in the evening, fake eyelashes will brighten up the eyes. Look out for lashes with a soft touch for a natural look. Tips – before applying fake eyelashes, remember to curl your eyelashes and apply two coats of waterproof mascara, fill in the gaps with your eye liner for a cleaner finish. You may also want to get additional pairs of these lashes, just in case!
Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture (1 Le Rouge- Blood Red) (RM 116)
Finally, pout your way to your fiancé’s heart with a beautiful lip colour! We have picked this lipstick because it is highly pigmented, non-toxic and it has the ability to transform your look from sweet to seductive with just one swipe! It is also formulated to keep your lips hydrated and stays on without smudging or fading throughout the day. Tips – for a defined lip, trace a lip pencil in the same shade before applying your lipstick!
These makeup products will certainly ensure a natural and long-lasting look on wedding day. It is recommended that you experiment with these products way before the big day approaches. Final tip – remember to carry a few touch-up tools such as oil-blotting sheets and cotton buds to clean up any smudges!
