5 makeup essentials you need on your wedding day

You’ve probably spent months prepping your skin and booking in all your beauty appointments to prepare for your big day. We want to show you the TOP beauty products to apply before you walk down the aisle!

Loreal Hydra Genius

Firstly, for a long-lasting look we advise that you prime your face, but it is your choice whether that is done with a primer or it is done with a cream/ moisturising serum. We have tried and tested this product and love its 72 hour lock in of moisture. It has a tacky effect when applied, creating the PERFECT base for your foundation and once it’s dry you can’t feel a thing. Loreal Hydra Genius caters for oily, normal, dry and sensitive skin types. Benito HQ are loving this product!

Nars Sheer Glow

This is the holy grail of foundation and due to its formula, allows a buildable coverage enabling you to get the look you desire; If you wanted a light coverage then you would use less foundation and for a fuller coverage you would use more… either way this foundation leaves your skin truly glowing with a natural and radiant finish! We recommend Nars Sheer Glow for normal – dry skin and with the huge variety of shades available, you can definitely get the right match for you.

Collection 2000 eyebrow kit

At this point you are probably preparing your brows, Benito believes brows are the most important asset on your face. On your wedding day you don’t want thick and over drawn looking brows, you want the perfect elegant, defined and fierce yet natural look… this brow palette is great for this at the price of only £3.99. It has three powdered shades for you to use to create your ideal look! You are then your able to finish it with the provided clear brow mascara to keep those brows in place which in our opinion is a win win, don’t you think?

Mac lip combo

We all dream about the perfect lip combination… At Benito we have trialled and found a lip colour that is the perfect nude with a pink undertone. Macs top seller; Whirl lip liner and Peachstock lipstick. Whirl lip liner is a dark mauve pink toned liner and when paired with Peachstock creates a ombre lip effect making the outside of your lips look more defined and creating the perfect nude lip look. Perfect for subtle over lined fuller lip. Worn here by Birmingham based MUA – @makeupbethx
