Hanging in my closet is my third (yes, third) green bridesmaid dress that I will diligently wear at my high school friend’s wedding next weekend. I will stand at the altar with six other friends in the sweltering heat, trying to resist using my bouquet to fan myself, and smile as the two lovebirds tie the knot. After years of experience, I’ve mastered this fool-proof and, more importantly, tear-proof technique of applying wedding makeup.
My essential bridal beauty secret: BADgal waterproof mascara! To seal any eye shadows, I then apply she laq, a clear liquid makeup sealer. While it may seem intimidating, this stuff works wonders! From the heat to bawling at the father/daughter dance, my makeup stays in place and I’m ready to boogie on the dance floor.Oh, and sneak a silky-finish lipstick in your bouquet for quick touch-ups throughout the reception.
