Today's Make Up Bag.. Wedding Style.

Like most girls, weddings get me excited. It's generally a pretty experience especially when, like in this case, it's a celebration for two lovely lovely people who I've come to adore over the past few months. The tables were adorned with pine cones, vines, pebbles, and wait for it - jars of sweets! - and the atmosphere was just lovely, especially in such a beautiful setting like the countryside in Wiltshire. It was just heartwarming and extremely enjoyable - congratulations Stuart and Carrie! (Hope you are enjoying Turkey, lucky lucky people.)

Now let's not forget here - I'm a beauty blogger. So of course I thought long and hard about my make-up for that day - perhaps too long to mention without a level of embarassment! I don't have a FOTD for you sadly, but I do have the contents of my make-up bag that I pranced around with that day (literally), and some tips and new products that I've fallen in love with..


MAC Studio Fix Fluid
Long-wearing, full-coverage, matte - what more could you want for a long day and a dance-filled, slightly pissed, evening do? This baby did me proud and stayed put, kept the oils at bay and gave me a great canvas for the rest of the face. Granted it has SPF that may cause ghost-face in flash photography, I did manage to avoid most - except for at the summoning of the bride in the 'family photo' - I'm not even family haha!

MAC Studio Fix Powder
For good measure, a dusting of this will ensure an even longer lasting and more flawless base with that extra bit of coverage. I took this with me in case I got oily, but one dusting in the morning was enough to last me!

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Eyeshadow in French Vanilla and L'Oreal Super Liner in Black Crystal
Let's face it. Everyone needs to prepare for some eye make-up ruin-age at weddings.


CoverFX Powder Brush*
My new love. This is a fantastic brush that is unlike any other powder brush. Basically it picks up product like no other, it's soft like no other, and it is multi-tasking like no other - and I don't just mean multi-products, I mean multi-techniques! A perfect brush for on-the-go, especially for those who like a bit more of a heavy application. More on this in the future, I'm sure!

This has been a firm love of mine for the past few weeks, as it gives a stunning glow to your face, as well as really lighting up your under eye. Sometimes I have to stop myself from just slathering my face in this.. true story.

My undereye concealer of choice recently - I had ridiculous bags this weekend so I wasn't going to cast a shadow with these on the dancefloor! Luckily this lasted quite well, and I didn't need a top up at all.

Dior Addict Lipstick in Miss Dior
Perhaps the only thing that I actually used in the evening out of the whole make-up bag (typical), this was this perfect lipstick. No need for a mirror, just a low coverage peach lipstick with enough moisture to double as a lipbalm. Perfect.

So that was that! For the rest of my face I wore some standard Urban Decay Naked Palette smokey eye, and a bit of Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Blissful! We had a lovely weekend (yes I realise I've said it was today's make up bag haha.. OCD me!), it was a lovely ceremony and I think my boyfriend especially enjoyed being an usher - I enjoyed the pate and the wine, thoroughly. Probably too much as I forgot to charge my phone for all the Instagramming I should've been doing! Very bad blogger, very bad.

And before I go, a quick sneak peak at my nails for the wedding..

Which I will tell you about at a later date ;)

Have you been to a wedding lately? What's your favourite part about them?

  7. Everyone wants to carry a beautiful hermes bag outlet and Prada makes some really attractive ones. When you shop louis vuitton wallets sites you can be empowered to choose the style you want when it comes to style and accessories. If you have always desired to be a cheap omega watches setter then starting with a stylish handbag is a great start. You can set cheap christmas gifts and still stay within your allowed budget if you take a bit of time shopping online.

  8. I'm getting married soon, and I really love this post! It's giving me ideas! Thank you so much. I really think that the hair and make-up should match the setting of the wedding. I am looking for wedding venues in Somerset and I think that my HMU should match it.
