KIT TO PACK FOR THE DAY

THE RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS YOU SHOULD HAVE (OR PURCHASE BEFORE, IF REQUIRED) ON YOUR WEDDING DAY TO HELP TO MAINTAIN AND TOUCH-UP YOUR COMPLEXION:

NOTE: THE PRODUCTS SUGGESTED ARE FROM MOST EXPENSIVE TO LEAST EXPENSIVE RANGES

  • BLOTTING PAPER – AVAILABLE FROM MAC, BODY SHOP OR PRICELINE; THIS IS USED TO SOAK UP ANY EXCESS OIL AND/OR SWEAT THAT FORMS THROUGH THE DAY ON THE T-ZONE AREA, ESPECIALLY FOR OILY COMPLEXIONS
  • TOUCH-UP COMPACT PRESSED POWDER – IS USED TO RETOUCH OVER ANY SHINE SPOTS (ESP T–ZONE) ON THE FACE, AVAILABLE FROM STILA THE ILLUMINATING PRESSED POWDER FOUNDATION, OR MAC STUDIO FIX, OR VARIETIES FROM THE BODY SHOP, AND BRANDS AT PRICELINE
  • LIP BRUSH – FOR RETOUCHING YOUR LIPSTICK/GLOSS IN A POT; BUT NOT REQUIRED IF YOU USE YOUR OWN LIPSTICK OR GLOSS WITH A BUILT-IN WAND – YOU CAN BUY EXPENSIVE LIP BRUSHES FROM ANY COSMETIC BRAND, BUT FOR PRACTICALITY THE BODY SHOP OR MANICARE (FROM PRICELINE) WILL DO FOR THIS PURPOSE
  • LIP LINER – OPTIONAL, NEUTRAL PINKY-BROWN IS BEST THAT GOES WITH MOST LIP COLOURS – “BEECH” FROM THE BODY SHOP IS FANTASTIC, AND ECONOMICAL
  • LIPSTICK OR LIPGLOSS – IT IS SUGGESTED IF YOU LIKE THE COLOUR USED THAT YOU PURCHASE YOUR OWN SO YOU CAN RE-TOUCH IT AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE – BONITA WILL TELL YOU WHERE TO BUY THE ONE SHE USES OR HAVE A LOOK AROUND THE COUNTERS YOURSELF, BUT YOU MUST TRY THE COLOURS ON YOUR LIPS - AS COLOURS WILL CHANGE ONCE IN CONTACT WITH YOUR SKIN CHEMISTRY
  • SOME COTTON TIPS – CARRY THESE IN YOUR PURSE WITH YOU TO WIPE UP ANY EYELINER OR MASCARA SMUDGES UNDER THE EYE REGION DURING THE DAY

  • PACK OF TISSUES - MAINLY FOR EMOTIONAL TEARS, BUT ALSO GOOD FOR MAKE-UP SMEARS 
  • A COMPACT MIRROR

NOTE: THERE ARE MANY 12-HOUR STAY-ON LIP COLOURS THAT WILL STAIN OR ADHERE TO THE SKIN FOR LONGER WEAR, BUT USUALLY THESE DO INVOLVE ALCOHOL AS A SEALING INGREDIENT AND WILL DRY OUT THE LIP AREA; ALSO THE WEAR OF THE LIPS WILL EVENTUALLY LOOK A LITTLE CAKEY AFTER A FEW HOURS AND YOU WILL STILL NEED TO USE A GLOSS WITH THE STAY-ON COLOURS TO KEEP THE LIPS MOIST ON TOP; BONITA DOES HAVE PRODUCTS LIKE THIS (IF REQUESTED) HOWEVER IT IS NOT THE MOST FAVOURABLE LIP PRODUCT.
