Here are 5 beauty products that wedding make-up and hair up stylist Pam Wrigley always carries in her professional kit. All have great staying power and help you achieve and retain a flawless look on your wedding day

Lash Power mascara

Clinique Lash Power Mascara

Since tears are possibly in the mix on your wedding day, you need a mascara that won’t let you down. Pam says that Clinique Lash Power lasts all day, defines lashes perfectly and stands up to both heat and emotion. This wonder product was originally developed for humid Asian climates, so it resists moisture, oils and heat and also helps to separate and define individual lashes. It’s also easy to remove. £18. clinique.co.uk


2. MAC SKIN_SkinBase 300

MAC Prep + Prime

Pam says this clever product from MAC makes a great base so that foundation stays in place – also helping to reduce redness and shine. It’s a very light lotion containing silicons and is designed to soothe the skin, as well as ensuring that foundation and powder stay put. £21. maccosmetics.co.uk


3. Cosmetics a la carte Matte Miracle Ivory copy

Cosmetics a la Carte Matte Miracle

This London-based make-up company is a go-to for professional stylists and Pam describes Matte Miracle as a primer that not only stops shine, but helps brides to achieve the dewy bridal look. Again, a very light product and contains lavender essence, silica gel and minerals to reduce inflammation and minimise open pores. It also comes in four colours, from ivory to bronze and is paraben free. £35. alacartelondon.com

Inglot Eye Shadow Keeper

Pam describes Inglot Eye Shadow Keeper as brilliant base to ensure shadow glides on and stays on without developing creases – adding that it’s also great for older clients who want to avoid that creased or papery look that can develop when eyeshadow has settled. It’s a semi transluscent film that preps your eyelids, working to hold both eyeshadow and eyeliner in place. £14. inglotuk.com

Benefit_0110 104

Benefit POREfessional Face Primer

Pam says this primer from Benefit gives a fabulously smooth, even tone and minimises imperfections. It’s an oil-free base that contains vitamin E and helps to reduce pores if you apply it before foundation. You can also reapply over make-up if you need a top-up during the day. £24.50.  benefitcosmetics.com/uk
