My Wedding Makeup

As you can tell from the title and my last post, I recently got married! I wanted to share with you the products I used on my wedding day to achieve my makeup look. I decided to do my makeup myself because 1. I was in a different country, 2. didn't have time for a trial, 3. didn't trust anyone else with my makeup or hair. For my hair I went super simple of just curling it and pinning up one side. The curls fell out super quick due to how hot it was!

I really wanted something very soft and glowy for the skin so I went with what is now my holy grail foundation - NARS Natural Radiant Longwear. I bought this foundation specifically for the wedding the day before we left and ending up falling in love with it. I wanted something that is exactly how the name describes it - natural, radiant, and long wearing. The finish on this is stunning; it truly is a "my skin but better" foundation. I would highly recommend it if you have normal to dry skin. To highlight my under eyes, I went with a shade lighter because I didn't want it to be too bright so I actually used the L'Oreal Pro-Glow foundation in the shade 203 Nude Beige and then set it with Laura Mercier setting powder


For the brows, I used my normal Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe (I suck at doing my brows) Always room for improvement. I wanted the eyes to be the center of attention so I did gold glitter on the lid with Stila's liquid eyeshadow in Kitten to match our color scheme of blush pink and gold. I swept some light brown shades in the crease to blend it and a cream color for the brow bone. And to top off the eyes, for mascara I went with Tarte Lights Camera Splashes because I knew I needed something waterproof for the happy tears! I wanted to put on lashes initially but didn't have time (yes I was running late on my wedding day - are you surprised?) so I skipped the lashes and just stuck with the mascara.
                              
I paired the eye look with a nude lip from YSL in the shade 10 Beige Tribute. I really wanted a different color but I was running short on time and the photographer and videographer were there so I literally just grabbed whichever lipstick was in front of me. I didn't even have time to use a lip liner!
             
For bronzing I used the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette. This is my go to palette for traveling. I didn't want to go super heavy handed on the bronzer because I wanted it to still look natural although I wish I would've went slightly heavier because you can barely tell I have bronzer on at all. The highlighter I used was Becca's Champagne Pop which I swear I put on like 4 layers, I wanted to GLOW.

What products did you use on your wedding day? Or which ones would you use for your future wedding?
