So, the big day has arrived! It's going to be a busy, busy, day full of emotions and probably lots of cameras and eyes on you. Whether you are getting your makeup professionally done or you're doing your own makeup, be sure to keep a makeup bag with you during the day for touch ups.

Depending on the weather and temperature of the day, you may need to include items that will aid with the climate that you're in.

Here's a list of the essentials that I recommend you keep at hand.

*Blotting papers to remove excess shine

*Stick foundation to touch up areas around your nose or fill in where the tears have been

*Lipstick and lip balm

*Blush and bronzer

*Setting powder

*Kabuki brush

The following aren't makeup but I think you should keep with you on the day!


*Hand sanitiser

*Band-Aids or medical plasters

*Bobby pins and hair ties

If you still have room in your bag, keep the rest of your makeup in there too.



*Eyeshadow palette



*Makeup sponge

*Face mist

If you have some hiccups along the way, just remember that your wedding day should be a joyous celebration! Don't sweat the small stuff and enjoy the happy moments with your loved ones!
