It’s always a good idea to carry some of your favourite beauty products with you on your special day for any last minute touch ups on-the-go. From the time your makeup and hair is done in the morning until the reception in the evening, sometimes all you need is a quick re-touch to keep you looking and feeling your best. To help you look fresh all evening long, here are a few items I always keep with me during a special event.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
My go-to lipsticks on special occasions are the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. Available in three formulas: matte, sheer and shimmer, they are perfect for the bride to be who doesn’t want to worry about lipstick touch ups on her big day.
