Long Lasting Wedding Day Makeup for a Bride on a Budget

Happy Monday All, and Happy June as well!

As summer approaches full speed ahead, so does the hot summer days and nights. This past week, I completely gave up with touching up my make up, because what’s the point?

But what if you’re a bride to be and you can’t give up on you’re flawless wedding look? And to make matters worse, what if you have a limited budget and can’t afford a make up artist or expensive makeup that lasts all day?

Good makeup doesn’t need to be expensive, and there are ways to preserve your look without having to break the bank.

Here are some recommendations for some inexpensive, but effective make up brands that you can find in your local drug store or Ulta Beauty:

All of these products have been given 4.5-5 basic-5-point-gold-star-beveled and are highly rated to be the best make up for those on a budget. All prices are current and a majority of the products have links and locations that take you directly to the online pages. I tried to keep all locations to one place for a one stop shopping trip. There are certainly lower prices elsewhere. Please feel free to look over the reviews and decide for yourself!
