Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter

Wedding festivities go on from morning until night, so when evening rolls around and your makeup is still perfectly in place, you'll be thankful you took two second to spritz this. It's basically like super glue for makeup.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Beauty Light Wand

Charlotte Tilbury

Perfect for summer wedding guest makeup; this matte liquid blush will give you a glow but won’t highlight your pores like some more shimmery liquid blushes will. The result is a diffused, soft colour that’ll look flawless in photos.
