Bridal Makeup *Hot* Product List

If you're a makeup enthusiast, then you probably know and love Mario D., the makeup artist genius behind Kim Kardashian's amazing look. A while ago, he blogged about his favorite products for brides and I wanted to share them with you. For the full post and more fun makeup tips, click here. {All of the commentary below is from Mario's post.}

Photo Finish Foundation Primer by Smashbox. This is a really good primer to use all over before you apply your foundation. It helps keep the makeup last longer and keeps it smooth.

Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier. This concealer had 2 shades that you can mix to get the perfect match for your skin. Go a little lighter under the eye and for blemishes, match the exact skin color.

Loose Setting Powder by Laura Mercier. This is good to set your foundation and concealer. It’s very silky and sheer and has a bit of light reflecting which helps to smooth fine lines and imperfections. Try putting a bit of it on a velour puff and applying it that way. Great to touch up with also through out the day and night.

Orgasm Blush by NARS. It’s a peachy pink with shimmer and just looks beautiful and so many skin tones. Brush it on the apples of your cheeks (try not to go too low on the cheek with it).

Dior Bronze – Amber Tan by Dior. A matte golden bronze shade of bronzer. Brush it all around the frame of the face to warm your skin up. Don't forget to apply some to the neck too!

High Beam by Benefit. This is a luminescent complexion enhancer. Apply it on your cheek bones for a dewy glow. I like to use it on the center of the lip too for a highlight and on the bridge of the nose.

Silk Eye Shadow Wash by Stila. It’s a water-based liquid-to-powder eyeshadow in a shade called kitten (pinkish gold tone) It looks great on a lot of skin colors. Use it on your eyelid or to highlight.

Powerpoint Eyepencil by MAC. This pencil is great for a wedding because its waterproof but you can still blend it nicely for a smokey eye. Also great for the inner rim of the eye. After applying on top lids, brush a little translucent powder over it and apply again. This will give the line a lot of pigment and really pop.

B-Dazzle by GIELLA. The perfect shade eye shadow for the inner corner of the eyes. Makes you look more awake and gives that “angelic” look. GIELLA can also custom blend it into a pencil.

If you can't get enough (and believe me, I'm with ya!), check out Mario's video tutorials. To the do-it-yourself girls out there, soak it in. He really gives great advice on photography makeup!
