On your wedding day your makeup gets a real workout! Your photographer will want to snap all the hugs, kisses, talking, eating and dancing so having a bridal makeup rescue kit is essential to keep you glowing flawlessly from the first look to the end of night send off.
Bridal Makeup Rescue Kit Essentials
To save you from becoming a bridezilla a few days before the wedding, you’ll want to have your makeup rescue kit sorted well in advance. Have a chat to your wedding makeup artist about what he/she recommends. At the very least, make sure that these basics are included in your wedding day kit:
- Pressed powder or translucent setting powder
- Eye pencil
- Lip pencil
- Lip gloss
- A quality brush set
- Blotting paper
- Cotton tips
- Sponge applicators for liquid foundation
Have a chat to your maid of honour to check that she’s comfortable being in charge of this vital bag and work out a good place that you can leave it once you’re at the reception. If you’re having an outdoor wedding you’ll also need to consider if you’ll need sunblock and if so, trial a few different types to find one that works with your makeup. You might also want to throw in a pocket sized mirror so that you can touch up anywhere that you might need to!

Create your ultimate bridal makeup rescue kit list!
Once you’ve got that, have a look at which products you already have and what you might still need to get. For hygiene, you’ll want to throw anything out that’s more than 12 months old (except for powders) and check with your bridal makeup artist if they provide a touch up kit that includes your wedding makeup colours. If you don’t already have good quality makeup tools, these are a worthwhile investment for that flawless finish!
After that, compile a list of any items that you still need to buy and find a cute bag that will fit everything for a stress free, perfect makeup day!
