We all know that the bride glows from within — but that doesn’t mean she should be shiny on her wedding day. Wedding day skin with shine leads to subpar photos, and no one wants that. The good news is that there are plenty of products out there that help stop that shine in it’s tracks.
Here are a few of our absolute favorite products to help control pesky wedding day shine:
1. Mehron “Touch Up” Anti Shine – To ensure a long-lasting makeup application, the face must first be well-prepped. Before priming and moisturizing, be sure to address any shine issues. We recommend using Mehron “Touch Up” Anti-Shine sparingly on those areas which are prone to oil. This product will act as an oil-blocker, leaving your face oil and perspiration free! “Touch Up” is available in 3 tints: Light, Medium, and Dark.
2. BECCA Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation – Once your face is prepped, use only the best anti-shine foundations to ensure a dewy-yet-matte look. We recommend the BECCA Ever-Matte foundation for controlling shine on your special day. This foundation is available in 20 shades, and has a medium to heavy coverage.
3. “First” by Make Up First ® (MAQPRO) Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette – This slim palette is ideal for brides. These twelve matte shades are bridal-ready, and can be used to create any style from a soft, romantic look to a dark, sultry, smoky eye. These heavily pigmented powders will have great staying power, and can even be used on the face to highlight and contour.
4. Skindinavia “The Makeup Finishing Spray–Bridal” – Skindinavia’s ultra-fine spray is specifically designed to resist the effects of excess moisture, and is clinically proven to keep makeup looking flawless for up to 16 hours. The award-winning setting spray controls stress-induced shine. Kiss-proof, cry-proof, and sweat-proof, this product is made to seal the deal on your big day!
