Many brides do their own bridal make-up instead of using a professional wedding make-up artist. But to create the right look you need the right products. We have found some of the best wedding day make-up products that are perfect for if you choose to do it yourself.
You should feel a million dollars on your wedding day, but you also need to feel confident and comfortable in yourself too. If you usually wear little or no make-up then it’s best to stick to a more subtle, natural look, rather than going for a full face of make-up. You don’t want to look back at your wedding pictures and feel that you looked like someone else.
There are so many make-up products available so you’re sure to find a selection of products that are right for you.
From creating flawless skin to natural looking eyebrows, here are some of our top wedding day make-up products.
Primers, Foundations and Powders
Creating a flawless look will be easy with these beauty products.
Foundation Primer by Laura Mercier – £29.00
Have you ever used a foundation primer? If you have then you will know how amazing they are, if not, well you should!
A foundation primer is a product that is usually clear or very light in appearance, and goes on first before any concealer or foundation. It helps to keep your make-up perfect all day.
This Laura Mercier Foundation Primer is fabulous. You prime your skin with an invisible layer that leaves make-up looking fresh and colour-true all day. It creates a smooth, even surface for flawless make-up application.
Ultimate Face Tint really does do everything. If you want to have an even complexion but want the product to feel light on your skin then you will love this face tint. Smooth and lightweight, it gives a brilliant, flawless look without the feel of a thick foundation on your skin. Great for weddings in all seasons but especially summer weddings.
It comes in five fabulous shades, Fair, Light, Medium, Medium/Deep and Deep, so it’s great for all skin tones and types.
For a polished, flawless wedding day make-up look the Laura Mercier, Silk Crème Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation is our top choice. It smooths skin texture and evens skin tone. It’s loved by make-up artists worldwide, and us too!
This medium to full coverage foundation is available in 12 shades. It covers those hard to conceal imperfections and delivers a photo-ready, natural matte finish that lasts up to 12 hours.
Dandelion by Benefit – £23.50
Dandelion is a sheer, ballerina-pink face powder that takes your complexion from dull to radiant.
If you are looking for a product to give you a radiant glow then this is the one! It’s subtle enough to wear all over, or just on your cheeks as a blusher. The colour is perfect for most complexions.
It comes in a lovely little square box with a built-in mirror and a cute little brush. It’s fab to pop in your wedding bag should you need any quick touch ups later in the day.
Eyes and Brows
The amazing thing about this eyeliner is that it’s matte black gel formula is waterproof and won’t smudge, budge or dry out for 24 hours. This is of course really important on your wedding day. The angled tip makes it easy to apply, even if you are not that confident applying eyeliner.

Gimmee Brow by Benefit – £18.50
This tinted eyebrow gel contains tiny microfibers that adhere to skin and hairs, creating natural looking fullness and definition. It’s amazing! Forget pencils that can sometimes make your brow look drawn on; this is so natural looking.
I have fair eyebrows that you can’t really see without a product on them. Since finding Gimmee Brow I never leave the house without it on!
This will make your brows look perfect for your wedding pictures. It’s also small enough that you can pop it in your bag should you need a touch up on your big day.
Available in three shades, light, medium, deep.
Roller Lash by Benefit – £19.50
This is a super curling and lifting mascara; it’s the best mascara I have ever used. It’s a roller for lashes! The eye-opening Hook ‘n’ Roll brush grabs, separates, lifts and curls, while the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours.
I have quite short eyelashes and the Roller Lash makes them look so much longer, thicker and adds an uplifting curl. I have tried so many mascaras that make my lashes clump, but this brush if so fine that it helps to separate them.
I’m in love… with a mascara.
Available in Black and Brown.
The Benefit Lollitint is great if you are looking to add a little colour to your wedding day make-up look. It’s perfect for both lips are cheeks.
It comes in a little bottle with a brush stick (almost like a nail varnish). You simply add it to the apple of your cheeks and/or your lips to give a beautiful long lasting pink tint.
Be warned – once it’s on, it’s on! Which is, of course, just what you need on your wedding day.
If you want to create a dewy glow to your wedding day look, this satiny pink liquid highlighter accents cheek and brow bones. You can use it as a spot highlighter over make-up or under complexion products for subtle luminescence.
You will probably want to wear a lip product that stays put, so you don’t have to keep reapplying every five minutes. The Clinique Long Last Glosswear does just that; it stays put for up to eight hours.
Not only does it last, it’s moisturising too, so you won’t end up with dry lips by the time your wedding ceremony starts! There are 18 shades to choose from, from sheer to full intensity.
So there you have it, the perfect wedding day make-up products to create a beautiful flawless look. They are all so easy to use, so even a make-up beginner can create a stunning wedding day look.
