A bridal touch-up kit will be your saving grace when it comes to keeping your wedding makeup look flawless and smudge-free. From tearful first looks to dancing the night away with the love of your life, you’ll definitely need a few touch-ups throughout the big day. While I, as your makeup artist will make sure your wedding-day look is picture-perfect, a bridal touch-up kit will ensure your face remains camera-ready until the very end of the night. So, if you’re a bride trying to figure out what to pack in your touch-up kit, I’ve got your back! From blotting papers to powdering, these beauty products are perfect for creating a long-lasting wedding makeup look.
Here’s every beauty product you’ll need for your bridal touch-up kit.
If you’re hoping to wear false lashes to enhance your wedding makeup look (hello, dramatic eyes!), then we definitely suggest packing some kind of lash adhesive in your bridal touch-up kit. Trust us, the last thing you’ll want is for an eyelash to lift or fall out of place during your first dance or cutting of the cake. Having an on-the-go lash glue in your kit will let you easily fix any misplaced eyelashes and help hold the lashes securely in place.
Blotting papers and oil control powder
If you’re worried about sweating or becoming too shiny in your pictures or throughout your wedding, then definitely bring blotting papers and oil control powder in your bridal touch-up kit. Perfect for absorbing excess liquid, these products easily help you control oil and minimize shine.
While not technically a beauty product, Q-tips are still a great addition to your bridal touch-up kit. They can easily get into small crevices to clean up any smeared mascara, lipstick, or other makeup that has come out of place. Just dab them in some cool water and try your best to blot instead of wiping the area. It’s important to remember when touching up your face that wiping can cause irritation and redness.
After you’ve made your touch-ups, you’ll want to use a setting or finishing spray to make sure your newly applied makeup holds. Setting sprays are formulated to make your makeup last longer and there are tons of different kinds. From matte finish to soothing, hydrating sprays, these magic mists will definitely help you look 100 percent throughout your big day. They even help with controlling grease. If you’re getting married in the warmer months or outside, then we highly recommend packing a finishing spray in your bridal touch-up kit.
Duplicate of your lippie
From kisses to mimosas your lips are going through a lot. This is a STAPLE to your touch up kit, especially for my gloss lovers. Having an extra of the lip your artist uses will ensure you can keep up that perfect pout all night! If you don't want to splurge on a boujee lip just for touch-ups, I can definitely find a more affordable dupe that won't break the bank.
