My 2019 Bridal Beauty Must-Haves

As the bulk of the 2018 Bridal Season is coming to a halt, I figured now is a great time to take a moment to reflect on my ride or dies in my kit going into 2019. The things I am relying on heavily when it comes to artistry essentials working in the Bridal Industry.

  1. Outlast All-Day Lip Color with Topcoat:
    The biggest thing when it comes to Bridal Beauty is making sure that your lip color is non-transferable and long wearing. This items hits the nail for that! They’ve got a ton of awesome bridal colors as well, and the price point is unbeatable!

  2. IGK 30,000 Feet:
    Wondering how to get the most impressive volume and texture in your bridal hairstyle? Look no further! This is, hands down, the best discovering I made in 2018. How was I sleeping on this product?!

  3. One of the Kind Hairpins:
    I am absolutely swooning over Blushing Flamingos incredibly hair accessories and am looking forward to seeing more items from them in 2019! Adding a small piece to your hair can completely transform your updo and give it a bit more attention it deserves (Pst, email me about the custom ones I make as well!).

  4. Tartlette in Bloom:
    This palette has been on my favorites for almost 3 years now. The colors are absolutely amazing for bridal looks and natural smokey eyes. So if you’re looking for the perfect romantic palette, you’ve found it here.

  5. Mac Face + Body Foundation:
    I’m all about layering to build vs using a full coverage foundation. I love a natural perfected look and constantly grab for Face and Body to deliver the “icing” on top of the cake. I also don’t use a ton of highlighter on Spring/Summer brides because the NC heat can make you look like a doughnut. This foundation gives you that “bridal glow” without going overboard.

So there you have it guys! My 5 must-have for Bridal Beauty going into 2019. I’m excited to see what I learn and change next year in my kit! What are some of your favorite bridal products?
