Destination Wedding Makeup – For the Bride Who Would Rather Spend Her Money on Cake!

Destination wedding makeup: do it yourself to save money and stress! Or for the budget savvy bride who would rather spend the money on cake.

Do it yourself bridal makeup for a destination wedding can be simple, easy, fun and stress free. I encourage you to learn how to do your own wedding makeup because it’s a skill a bride can use on the honeymoon, on the first wedding anniversary and through every wedding anniversary after that. Finally if you know someone getting married you can help that bride get ready for her wedding day beauty with your new found skill of makeup application.

For brides who are getting their beauty kits together for their destination weddings I am going to guess that you have most of the makeup and beauty items you need already in your makeup bag. A short wedding makeup shopping list for Sephora or Ulta to get the few specialty items you need can even include some drugstore brands from Walmart and Target that can get your bridal beauty bag ready with inexpensive brands such as Maybelline and L’Oreal.

You will need the basics such as foundation, powder, blush, eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascara and lipstick-though what you need from the makeup store and may not have is a stain and the new HD translucent powder by Makeup Forever. It’s the best powder in my professional makeup artist opinion for photos taking in digital photograph that is high definition and resolution.

The Makeup Forever HD translucent powder only comes in one shade so picking one out is easy. As for selecting a stain; I recommend the brands Lorac sheer wash which has four colors to choose from, as well as Tarte and Benefit.
