Top 5 Essential Bridal Beauty Products

After trying and testing hundreds of beauty products over the years, these five are clear winners for wedding make up and prep....

Maybelline Baby Lips
Despite having a drawer stuffed with lip glosses, balms and lipsticks, I couldn't resist grabbing this in a sale recently and it's A-MA-ZING. Maybelline have created the perfect lip balm which keeps lips soft and kissable. Prep your lips in the run up to the big day applying this daily and under your lipstick, to keep them looking and feeling great. 

Garner Miracle Skin Cream
Fight that 'I've not slept with wedding stress' appearance with this wonder cream. It's about €15 a tube and goes a long way. It works like magic, literally as soon as you put it on your skin looks different. You'll have a beautifully radiant glow on your wedding day even with light makeup applied over the top. It is also spf20, perfect for summer weddings.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara (waterproof of course!)
Volume, length, curl, clumping...there's a mascara promising them all but do they really work? I've tried some great mascaras, but the best all rounder for a wedding has to be the top selling Great Lash Mascara. The waterproof option won't budge when the happy tears start, and it subtly defines and adds length to your lashes without clumps for a natural look.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Just as you wear flattering shapewear under a little black dress, you'll notice the difference wearing a face primer. It ensures a flawless finish and really brings out the wow factor on your wedding photos. This is my favourite primer and is loved by makeup artists too. It has a lovely silky texture and works great under foundation.

Rimmel Apocalips Gloss
A recent beauty find that I'm addicted to, it's so good! I have hundreds of glosses that either leave my hair stuck to my face in the wind, or wear out before I've left the house, but this one gets top marks. The unique applicator makes it easy to apply, it's smooth not sticky and holds for hours. There are a great range of shades to suit every bridal look, from pink Nova for natural brides to red Big Bang for a romantic look.

These 5 beauty finds won't break the bank either, definitely worth adding to your bridal bag!
