On your wedding day, it’s normal to have people around you to cater to all your needs. But, as the saying goes, you can’t have everything, especially when you need to retouch your makeup.
Let’s face it, as a bride, you can’t just excuse yourself from the crowd to touch up your makeup. You also can’t have your makeup artist tail you all throughout the event. The best way to deal with this is to have your basic bridal touch up kit at bay.
To complete your kit, make sure you have the following:
1. Mirror. I’m not suggesting a full-length here. Make sure to keep a compact mirror at bay to not mess up your touch ups.
2. Lip gloss. You wouldn’t want to see those faded lipstick on pictures, don’t you? So bring an easy-
to-apply lip gloss to brighten those lips back to life.
3. Blush stick. This is a very handy tool to add colour to those cheeks. Make sure to apply just the right amount on your cheeks and finish up by gently rubbing it with your fingers.
4. Concealer pencil. A concealer pencil is not only helpful for covering pimples, but it’s also great for mascara and eyeliner smears.
5. Cotton buds. If the pencil concealer won’t work, then you’d better clean that smear with a cotton bud and touch it up with your face powder.
6. Face powder. To avoid or minimize skin oiliness, a face powder can do the trick.
7. Eyelash glue. Let’s face it; it’s uncomfortable having your false eyelashes losing their ends. The worst part is, it can sometimes ruin your photos. To avoid this, make sure to have your eyelash glue on hand.
8. Nail polish. This may sound weird, but a chipped nail polish on your wedding day can be an eyesore. Make sure to have your nail polish on your kit to fix those chips.
It’s better to ask your makeup artist to provide a touch up kit to make sure that you use the same products with him/her. Your wedding makeup touch up kit must also match your whole wedding outfit.
