Brides are spending so much on their weddings that the last thing she wants to worry about is cutting back on their wedding day makeup. Your wedding day is a day for you to shine and when you walk down the aisle you want to know that your makeup will be just as flawless as the carats on your finger. Whether having a ceremony at home, or a destination wedding abroad, bridal makeup is just as important as the wedding dress, the wedding photos and the wedding cake. So how do you look as fabulous as a Hollywood celebrity on your wedding day, but on a budget? Here is where a glam girl begins:

My favorite budget makeup is L’OREAL PARIS cosmetics. To create this glamxurious look I used the following items:

*L’OREAL PARIS Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base
*L’OREAL PARIS Studio Secrets Professional Color Smokes Shadow in Blackened Smokes
*L’OREAL PARIS HIP High Intensity Pigments Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black
*L’OREAL PARIS True Match Blush in Baby Blossom
*L'OREAL Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black
*L’OREAL Colour Riche Lipcolor in Sea Fleur

So when thinking about being on a budget, don’t be alarmed! Selecting makeup from a drugstore can be advantageous for both your look and your purse. Even on a budget, you can still be glamxurious on your wedding day.
