It’s finally here; your big day. You’ve planned every flower, song and seating arrangement. Nothing can go wrong. But here’s the thing. Something will, ultimately, pop up. You want to be prepared, so you can breeze through the unexpected and enjoy your day. Well, here are some goodies that will lessen your stress level, when it comes to Big Day Beauty –

These little eyeshadow compacts pack a punch – Piaffe’s Perfect Eyeshadows come in six color combinations and are everything you need all in one. With three shades you have your lid/highlight, crease, and liner colors that were made to work together. The texture is great and will last through the night. [url=][/url]

Ballet Slippers from Essie is a beautiful nail color for any bride who wants a subtle twist on the French manicure. Ballet Slippers is a soft pink with a pinch of shimmer that pairs well with their Blanc creme white color for the tips and it wears exceptionally well.

For a natural look, pop a little of Laura Mercier’s Creme Cheek cream blush on (available in three shades) for a subtle rosy cheek. It’s buildable and will last until your guests line up to send you off.

Created by makeup artist, Katarina Hakansson, The Color 1+2 is easy to carry around with you for touchups through the night. Slim as a credit card, The Color is a light type of coverage that allows skin to breathe and look flawless. [url=][/url]

Even if you’re not getting married outdoors chances are good that you may indeed get a little shiny. Tarte’s Blot Book comes to the rescue! Its blotting powder and papers give double duty coverage and allow for simple touchups through the day.

The ultimate fix is a makeup artist! You need someone who will listen to your vision, calm your nerves, and make you look and feel beautiful. If you have any questions, or need a makeup artist for your wedding, go to to get more information.
