Wedding Day Essentials from Laura Geller


Plan as much as you want, inevitably something will go wrong on your wedding day. While we can’t control the weather and the fact that the caterer is suddenly MIA, we do have a few suggestions for creating an (almost) flawless occasion that are simple and small enough to fit into your bridal clutch:

Keep breath fresh and ‘I Do’ ready with floss, a travel-sized toothbrush, and mini-bottle of mouthwash. Having a compact-sized sewing kit will keep any last minute hems and straps in their place while safety pins make tricky zipper pulls a cinch! Ask your bridesmaids to help you carry an emergency stash that includes stain remover, static guard (for winter weddings), and a lint roller, as well as extra hair pins, earring backs, and a bottle of clear nail polish.

For brides hosting a tropical destination wedding, make your make-up work overtime by opting for primer and foundation that already contains SPF like this Spackle Treatment SPF 30 Make-Up Primer from Laura Geller to protect skin from the sun’s rays and provide the perfect canvas for a long wearing make-up application.

If an unexpected guest arrives (i.e. a wedding day blemish) take cover with a lightweight concealer like the Easy Cover Up Hydrating Concealer Crayon  from Laura Geller that delivers natural, undetectable coverage in a creamy, blendable stick formula.

Last but not least, make every kiss count and prevent feathering – no, not a reference to Aunt Jo’s exotic attire – we’re talking about the unsightly lipstick faux paus that occurs when your lipstick settles into the crease of your lips or onto your face. Before applying your favorite lip color, simply prep lips with the Ultimate Lip Spackle from Laura Geller to keep your pucker game going strong.
