Wedding season is in full swing and it definitely takes me back a year ago when I was prepping for my own big day. I had a two-year engagement and used that time testing out products to find the best of the best so I could do it myself. This may not be for everyone, but doing my makeup relaxes me.

Ok, get ready because this is going to be an intense list of cosmetics. The amount and layers of product (applied lightly and built up) is what helps create a long lasting look, so bear with me. I’m going through this in order of how I applied it the day of the wedding. Give yourself a solid hour to apply your makeup… more if you’re going to be getting ready with others and will be easily distracted.
