Picture the scene; you’ve had your make up professionally done, but the tears at the ceremony coupled with the numerous kisses you’ve received from relatives and a little bit of bridal nervous sweating has caused it to come off. You’ve still got the wedding photos to go, and your make up artist has gone for the day.

We know you’re not going to want to carry around huge amounts of make-up on your big day so we spoke to Barry M Cosmetics Celebrity Make-up Artist Amy Sachon to bring you a list of wedding make-up bag must haves to carry in your bag or to give to your maid of honour to look after.

Make-up must have one: Lip gloss.
Lip gloss is a much subtler look and topping it up throughout the day won’t leave you with that lip stain some lipsticks can give if they are over applied. “I always keep a handy Barry M Cosmetics Coconut Clear Lip Gloss (RRP £4.25) in my handbag to leave lips looking healthy and hydrated.” says Amy.

Make-up must have two: Face Powder
If you’ve got oily skin or worried about your foundation becoming shiny on a night or day out then face powder is the perfect remedy. “Throughout the day your face goes through various temperature changes so I always dab on some face powder to keep skin looking flawless at all times,” says Amy.

Make-up must have three: Mascara

For us, this is the ultimate weapon in make-up but it’s even more important on your wedding day when tears of happiness beat even the strongest of waterproof mascaras. Amy says it’s also a perfect way to brighten the eyes and leave lashes looking longer and fuller.

Make-up must have four: Cover up
Cover up is definitely a miracle product and we’re not sure what we’d do without it, especially on those days where the spots decide to come out and play. Amy says it’s also “good for disguising bags under the eyes and general puffiness.”
