The ultimate bridal beauty kit

Your dream wedding dress fits like a glove. Your bouquet is fabulous; your accessories, subtle; your shoes, feminine. Now it’s time to put together the perfect beauty kit for the big day.

Makeup: Natural or glam?

Most brides opt for a simple, natural look and add a few touches of dazzle here and there. However, some decide to be more daring and choose the ultra-seductive smokey eye, for example.
The important thing is to make sure your makeup matches your style, your personality and your dress. That’s why you should do a few trial runs before the big event.

The essentials

When it comes to creating a gorgeous look that will stay put for hours and bring out your best features, you’ll want to have certain cosmetics on hand.

Primer for face and eyelids

  • Smooth over face and eyelids before applying makeup. Primers help extend the hold of other cosmetics and even out the complexion.


  • Apply concealer starting from the inner corner of the eye, moving outward. Concealer can also be used to hide redness, blemishes and other minor flaws.

Long-wear foundation (12 to 14 hours)

  • Choose a light, natural and luminous foundation.

Loose powder

  • Try a light-reflecting powder in an easy-to-carry compact. Use it to touch up your makeup throughout the day.

Blush in a pearly or satiny finish

  • Make sure it matches your lipstick.

Black lengthening, curving or volumizing mascara

  • To avoid the raccoon look should you shed a few tears on your big day, select waterproof mascara.

Eyebrow shadow

  • Go for a matte hue that matches your eyebrow’s natural colour. (Well-groomed, well-shaped eyebrows will structure your face and highlight your eyes.)

Long-wear lipstick 

  • Take the time to choose the right shade. Your best bet is a long-wear lipstick. Use it with lip liner to further extend its hold.

Makeup setting mist

  • Apply when makeup is complete. It will boost the hold of other products for hours.

The extras

To up the glam factor a bit, you can also add these articles to your beauty kit.

Bronzing powder

  • Apply sparingly to the forehead, nose, chin, cheekbones, temples and décolleté.

False lashes

  • Select lashes that come in strips. They are easier to apply and give more natural results.

Portable beauty kit basics

On D-Day, pack a mini beauty kit for last-minute touch-ups. You’ll need:

  • Paper tissues
  • A comb
  • Bobby pins
  • Travel-size hair spray
  • Blotting papers (to eliminate shine and freshen your complexion)
  • Spray mist
  • Loose powder
  • Blush
  • Lipstick
