It was about two months before my wedding, and I’d put off finding a makeup artist. I’ve always enjoyed doing my own makeup and felt fairly confident that I could do my own wedding day look myself, so I went for it.
I went into my wedding day knowing I’d love how everything looked, and when I got my wedding portraits back I was glad that I still looked like myself.
Another perk is that you get to keep all the products you’ve purchased and can use many of them regularly for everyday looks, so consider it an investment!
1.This Esarora Ice Roller is amazing for de-puffing your under-eyes after a restless night (or one too many late-night cocktails).
16.Glossier’s Boy Brow gave just enough color output to fill in a few small patchy areas in my brows, but I mostly love the small, spooly brush that lets you shape your eyebrows quickly with a few strokes.
TL;DR: If you choose to do your own makeup for your wedding or another big special occasion, sure, you may not necessarily want to use all of the products above, but they all come highly recommended by me, a real-life human who took on the challenge and went through a ton of trial and error.
