While you may already be trained not to leave the house without certain must-haves (survival items, if you will), this is all the more important on your wedding weekend—when emotions are running high and a makeup malfunction has the potential to derail your pre-ceremony mood. It’s best to make like a Girl Scout, and be prepared. After all, a well-prepared bride makes for a calm bride. Below, the five beauty products that you need to have on hand for your big day, along with five beautiful bags in which to house them.
Wander Beauty Rise and Prime Balm and Primer Duo
A multitasking, dual-ended product is genius when it comes to precious space in a miniscule minaudiere. This duo has a universal primer on one end to blur pores and imperfections while the other has a rich, but never greasy balm to soothe dry cuticles or parched lips.
Le Labo Rose 31 Solid Perfume
Your wedding day isn’t the time to try out a new scent. After all, you want to feel like yourself. However, purchasing the solid version of your signature will allow for post-sweaty dance floor touch-ups without risking leaks in your bag.
Hollywood Fashion Secrets Eye Makeup Swabs
No matter how much you try to keep it together, tears are inevitable. Saying your vows, dancing with your dad, the toasts . . . it’s easy to get weepy just thinking about it all! Rely on these to quickly swipe up any stray mascara or eyeliner.
While everyone wants to be a blushing bride, no one wants to be a shiny bride. These sponges absorb oil without ever disturbing your makeup.
Lune+Aster Vitamin C and E Lip Gloss
At a certain point in the evening, you can be sure that you will abandon your perfect wedding day lipstick and opt for an easy gloss that can be applied without a mirror. This formulas hasn’t even a hint of stickiness and is available in a variety shades.
