ELF Eyelid Primer

ELF Eyelid primer costs €1.70, that’s right only €1.70 for 5ml which lasts for ages.  I got this by mistake, thinking I had ordered the ELF Mineral Eye Shadow Primer which is meant for use prior to applying mineral eye shadow but I liked the fact that the mineral Eye Shadow Primer has no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.  The mineral eyeshadow primer is €3.50.

Bridal Makeup Essentials

essental primers and illuminators for bridal makeup

Primers & Illuminators

No matter what look you go for, and no matter how much makeup you usually wear, what brand you like, if you are on a budget or not; there are some essentials items you should have for your wedding day makeup that will help your makeup stay in place, the following are just some of my suggestions, I’m not saying they are any better than others, just my thoughts:

Illuminator: Try Clarins Beauty Flash Balm or Clarins Instant light complexion perfector to eliminate signs of tiredness and refresh your complexion (I recall getting very little sleep the night before my wedding, I has hyper!)

Primer: it’s a long day and you want your makeup to last so a good primer from either Smashbox photo finish, Makeup Forever HD primer, Laura Mercier foundation primer or Clarins Perfecting Touch for example will be your best friend!  Good branded primers range in price from €22 to €30 and are worth every penny in my view.  Read the rest of this entry »
