Bridal beauty makeup are impossible to avoid on your big day. After all, every bride wants to be picture perfect on that day. The only thing left is  your big-day beauty supplies.

Believe it or not, its possible to look gorgeous on the cheap makeup. You may have already spent a ton on your dress, shoes, and so on so your allowed  to cut corners with these chic bridal necessities. They're so good that we predict you'll use them long after the honeymoon is over.

Here’s a list of what you would definitely be needing.

  • Primer: On a day full of photographs, the last thing you want to worry about is causing a camera glare with your oily forehead. Primer mattifies your complexion for hours and grips your foundation, leaving your skin looking picture perfect.

  • Foundation: When your oily skin is in overdrive (wedding day anxiety), don't rely on just primer to lock down your favourite foundation. Switch to a long-wear formula foundation. This  formula comes in 20 shades and can be layered, so you can load up on coverage where you need it without looking caked up.

  • Waterproof Mascara: You're bound to shed a few happy tears on the big day. It doesn't have to ruin your look! You can also apply layer upon layer without getting gunky, ideal for achieving a thick fringe.

  • Lipstick: Between countless kisses, bites of cake, and sips of Champagne, you're not going to have time to reapply your lipstick. Get a lipstick that has long stay.

  • False Lashes: You are going to want to add a little extra wow factor with a strip of false lashes when your staring into the eyes of the love of your life. A false lash always does the trick. Go for full connected lashes, not single applied ones.

  • Blush: When you're taking all those bridal selfies in front of the mirror as you get ready, you're going to want to leave your blush on full display. Even better, the pretty powder looks as beautiful on your skin as it does in your makeup case.

  • Brow Pencil: You want to make sure your brows are well defined. Not too thick but enough for your highlighter to work with. Comb your arches up with a spoolie brush, lightly fill them in with the pencil, and then finish by sculpting along the natural arched curve for a groomed look.
