As I approach my first anniversary it got me thinking about Spring being the season for weddings and I wanted to bring you my guide to beauty essentials if you’re a guest.

The night before

Make sure you have prepped your skin the night before so you wake up with a good base ready for the beauty you will be applying.

I would highly recommend a sleeping pack or oil.

The ones below are some I have used and love over the past 12 months.

The morning

Have a good breakfast. You are probably not going to eat till later (things always overrun) and you will more than likely be drinking.

Glow but don’t sparkle

A great tip is to wear a strobe cream or an illuminating primer to you have a radiance but not a chunky highlighter on the cheeks. You can also use a liquid highlighter like the Becca Moonstone highlighter in moonstone.

Use a setting spray

Find a setting spray that keeps your face in place all day. Dependent on what you’re looking for there are a number of different types, matte, dewy, high end, budget and my recommendations would be NYX and Rimmel.

Make your feet comfortable

You will probably be dancing the night away to a great covers band or a cheesy DJ, whatever it is you have to make sure your feet are comfy.

Don’t sleep with your face on

Cleansing is such an important part of the night. Get all that slap off before you have a glass of water and crash on your bed. These products are quick and you don’t have to faff!

Have you any tips for beauty essentials for wedding guests?
