With products yelling out from across the shelves, “me! me!”, finding the perfect one out of a million is a never ending journey. But through the many that come and go, there are a few that I always stand by. These are also my go-to’s for weddings when the days are long, there’s minimal time for touch up, and time isn’t on your side:
1. Prestige automatic waterproof eyeliner
This is the one eyeliner that hasn’t let me down through the years. I’ve been using this for as long as I can remember! It even lasted through jumping into the lake one summer without emerging like a wet racoon and I love that the black is a pure black.
2. Urban Decay eye shadow primer potion
This is what helps keep the eyeliner on along with your eye shadow. She has your back on keeping eye makeup from running down your face hours later.
3. Foot Petals & Dr. Scholls For Her Rub Relief Strips
I am a self confessed shoe & heel-aholic . But I am also all about comfort because I walk a lot at times and prefer not to look like a giraffe in heels if I can help it. And we’re too familiar with the fact that it always seems to be a struggle between cuteness and comfort. Well, compromise no more! At least for the most part. These babies allow me to wear some shoes (actually a huge fraction) that I’d never have given another chance had I not known about these shoe pads. I have them in almost every single pair and they are especially helpful on long-day shoots like weddings. And many of us know all too well that it’s really challenging to find a pair of cute shoes to get you through hours on your feet.
I use the foot petals for the heel for both my heels and flats to keep the shoe from rubbing and sometimes use the ball of foot ones for shoes with little padding on the base. I also use Dr. Scholl’s strips for my shoes (mainly all of my flats). They look like a skinny strip of foam but I love them because I can customize where to put them in my shoe by where it rubs against my feet, which is usually around the edges of my flats. I find the best deals on foot petals at Nordstrom Rack and have spotted them at Marshalls but you can also find them online or at Nordstrom. I get my strips at Target.
4. Kenra volume spray 25
It’s a common challenge to get your curls to stay through the day and since my sister introduced me to this hair spray ages ago, it’s still my number one. I love that it doesn’t make your hair crispyitty crunchitty, yet soft, and holds it down on the curls.
That about wraps it up! Feel free to ask any questions and would love to hear about your favs!
