Stay Waterproof on your Wedding Day!

Worried you’ll ruin your makeup from all the teary-eyed moments on your wedding day? The Beauty with Julie girls have put together some products for staying smudge-proof on your special day!

Makeup Forever has its own Aqua line which features an array of waterproof products:

  • Aqua Cream Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow– With an eyeshadow primer underneath, use this for your base with another eyeshadow on top and your eye makeup is completely cry-proof!
  • Aqua Creamliner Waterproof Cream Eyeliner– We prefer cream or gel liners because they’re easier to work with. Available in many different shades so maybe you’ll dare to wear turquoise eyeliner knowing it wont move!
  • Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil– Perfect your pout by lining the lips and filling them in. Kiss your hubby all night assured your lip color will stay put!
  • Aqua Smokey Extravagant Waterproof Mascara– This is a must have! Lashes stay full yet defined and won’t run down your face when you say your I’Dos!

Lancôme Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer– Yes, we know it is appropriate to wear waterproof eye makeup for our special day, but what do we use for the under eye area? This creamy, color correcting concealer will banish those dark circles and stay crease free all night long!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation– Although it is not advertised as a waterproof foundation, we’ve worn this in a pool and it didn’t budge! Just be sure to apply it in thin layers since it is a thicker, more pigmented formula. There are an array of shades for every skin tone and it even caters to normal/dry and combo/oily skins types.

Hope this helps you gorgeous ladies stay streak free on your wedding day! Xo

Bright, Bold, and Beautiful Lips!

OCC Lip Tar is known for its long-wearing properties and high pigmented hues. They can even be blended to create your own custom shade. With a variety of shades and finishes, you’re bound to find the perfect bridal lipcolor. This particular OCC Lip Tar is a bright pink hue with a matte finish. Be sure to apply with a lip brush because once it sets, it’s there to stay! Result: extremely kiss-proof, making it ideal for your wedding day!

Cute packaging huh? MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick is a bright, neon, coral hue. Its satin finish leaves the lips moist and hydrated, preventing any sliding around all night. Like all MAC lipsticks, it has a pleasant vanilla taste/smell. We’d say MAC’s got this one in the bag!

With all of the attention the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks have been getting recently, how could we not include one? You will experience the wear of a stain, the color of a lipstick, and the shine of a gloss. We tested this one all day through eating and drinking and it did not budge! We especially love this bright fuchsia hue for a spring/summer bride! Grab yours here! 

IMG_0448This gloss is one of Beauty with Julie’s go-to’s! Perfect for the bride that wants a shiny, creamy, bright lip, but still extremely subtle. This gorgeous peachy/coral hue will compliment any skin tone. Wear it alone or over a lipstick to make those luscious lips the center of attention!
