We reached out to some of our beautiful brides for what makeup worked best for them on their wedding day and included a few of our favorites from both drugstore and high-end brands!
NYX Pore Filler Primer, $13 at Walmart
Similar to the high end, Benefit Professional Primer, this leaves your skin smooth and flawless and sets the stage for blemish-free photos!
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, $39 at Ulta
This is for long lasting full coverage, that doesn’t look cakey and keeps your face’s natural glow and is great for most skin types!
Prescriptives Camouflage Cream Concealer, $42 on Amazon
This is Abriel’s favorite secret. Forget the drugstore and department store concealers. Prescriptives makeup is not cheap, but in every sense of the word. This concealer will last 2+ years, because it doesn’t need to be reapplied and you only need a wee bit! This stuff is a miracle in a tube. Kiss those blemishes goodbye, ladies.
Maskara, prices vary with each product
This is Kylee’s personal fav! It has been a brand that will never get old and brides rave about! You can find anything from blush to concealer and it all comes in small compacts that are easy to travel with!

Eylure Texture No. 117 Lashes, -$10 at Ulta
This box comes with 3 sets, and let me tell you girls. The eyelash gods sing with these babies. No joke. They don’t scream “fake eyelashes,” and are a great option if extensions aren’t your thing!
L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara, ~$8 at Walmart
Brides swear by it. Influencers swear by it. Makeup artists swear by it.
Physician’s Formula Airbrushing Foundation Pressed Powder, $13 at Walmart
No wrinkle creases, no greasy foreheads, no cakey finish!
Tarte Tartiest Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette, $45 at Ulta
Arguably the “Maskara” of department stores, this palette has been used time and time again by brides for a natural glow that matches perfectly with their skin tone.
Naked Eye Shadow Palette by Urban Decay, $45 at Ulta
This is everyone’s go to for eyeshadow, so if you don’t have one, now is the time! A little goes a long way, so you’ll have it forever!
MAC Lipstick, $18 at Ulta
Please, do yourself a favor and hard-pass the Lipsense. MAC will save your lips from drying out, with a color that will at least last through pictures, and no one will ever question if you need to reapply. Trust me, it’ll be worth it.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, $15 for 1 oz travel size at Ulta
This will keep your face on ALL day and ALL night through the tears at the ceremony and sweat while you’re the night’s dancing queen!
