If you happen to be getting married at a place where you can easily duck back into your bridal boudoir and access all your beauty supplies throughout the day/night, awesome. But if you're going to be moving from location to location and/or spending the day outdoors somewhere more remote, it's a good idea to stash a few emergency beauty essentials in your cute little wedding clutch. I'm not talking about a full emergency wedding-day beauty kit (for more on that, check out the wedding-day emergency kit Glamour sent to me when I got married—such a great gift idea!) I'm talking the key multitasker must-haves that could really save you in a pinch.
Here are the three things you should totally have on you at all times, in addition to your touch-up lipstick.
1. Cotton swabs. Toss a few in your bag for cleaning up eyeliner or lipstick smudges—they're bound to happen no matter how stay-put your makeup is (there will be LOTS of happy tears and cheek kisses and sweaty dancing going on!).
2. A tiny tube of Aquaphor. If you read our beauty blog, you know this is one of my all-time favorite multipurpose products. Use it to rehydrate your lips, or dab a tiny bit atop lipstick that's gotten dry. Put it on one of the cotton swabs to remove a makeup smudge. Use it as hand lotion or cuticle balm, or even as a spot moisturizer if dry patches show up on your face. It can even be cheekbone highlighter! Yeah, it's the MacGyver of beauty.
3. Blotting papers. They'll zap shine/grease without messing up your foundation and come in lots of fun versions that have pretty scent too, to make you feel instantly freshened-up.
What must-have items will you keep in your wedding-day clutch? Former brides, is there anything you desperately wish you'd thought to pack?
