shape tape™ concealer

If there’s one thing you need in your wedding makeup wardrobe, it’s a trustworthy concealer. Lucky for you, tarte™ is the #1 concealer brand.

This full-coverage favorite brightens undereyes & conceals blemishes, plus it can be used to highlight & contour for a sculpted look. The longwearing formula is clinically proven to last for 16 hours & delivers 12 hours of crease-proof wear.

Trust us, the stress of wedding planning is no match for shape tape™ — no one will ever know about your stress zits or dark circles!

When it comes to shape tape™, I typically use it all over the face, especially for brides because it is super long-wearing, mattifying & will make their skin flawless for the big day,” tarte™ makeup artist Ciara Glionna said.

Pro tip: shape tape™ is the ultimate hangover hack to hide puffy undereyes & fake 8 hours of beauty sleep!

If your skin’s on the drier side, shape tape™ ultra creamy might be a better fit for your wedding makeup kit. It delivers the same longwearing full coverage, but with a built-in eye cream for 24 hours of hydration.

shape tape™ glow wand

You’ll be glowing from the inside out with the help of shape tape™ concealer’s BFF. Infused with diamond complex™ for a soft-focus effect, this sheer liquid brightener delivers a natural, lit-from-within glow without glitter or shimmer.

Wear it alone for no-makeup magic or over undereye concealer for an instant eye lift. Swipe it on the high points of the face for a snatched look. Apply to collarbones & décolletage for enhanced definition.

This magic wand is an absolute must-have in Ciara’s wedding makeup kit for weddings. “It’s bridal makeup in a tube,” she said. “I use it all over the face before applying foundation to give that gorgeous, lit-from-within, bridal glow.”

tartelette™ in bloom Amazonian clay palette

If you prefer natural makeup looks for weddings, this eyeshadow palette is your go-to! Packed with 12 stunning rosy & bronze shadows, these neutral tones create soft, natural looks that flatter all eye & complexion colors. The best part? It’s infused with Amazonian clay to lock in your look all day!

“This is the most classic bridal palette,” Ciara said. “It’s perfect for enhancing your natural features, which is typically what brides want on their wedding day. It’s great for everyday use, too!”

lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara

Don’t want to hassle with falsies on the big day? This mascara is like a push-up bra for your lashes™! Equipped with a 360° magniLASH wand, this 4-in-1 mascara volumizes, lengthens, curls & conditions. It’s basically falsies in a tube & application is easy as pie (or should we say wedding cake)!

Worried you might shed a few tears during vows? Be prepared with the lights, camera, splashes™ (it’s the same epic mascara in a waterproof formula)!

Amazonian clay 12-hour blush

This best-selling blush delivers a natural, youthful-looking flush that can also be built up for bolder, brighter cheek color. Want to try something other than the traditional red & rose hues? Then this is the powder blush for you! Not only does it come in 12 shades to fit & flatter a wide range of skin tones, but it delivers 12-hour longwear. This baby will hold up through the ceremony, reception & the after=party!

For Ciara, Amazonian clay 12-hour blush is “a staple for all my brides.”

It gives the most gorgeous, longwearing flush & stays on for the longest time,” she said.

maracuja juicy lipstick

Dreaming of the perfect kiss at the altar? It’s not complete without one of our maracuja juicy lips!

This full-coverage lipstick feels like a balm, but delivers rich, craveable color with a rich satin finish. It's packed with lip-loving ingredients like hydrating maracuja & 10+ nourishing superfruits for a super soft, smoother-looking pout.

If you're thinking about filler, skip the needles & try our TikTok-famous maracuja juicy lip plump. Wear it alone or pair it with lipstick for a juicy pop of plumped-up color.

shape tape™ stay spray vegan setting spray

This setting spray is the final step in your routine to completely lock in your look on the big day. This super-fine mist takes your makeup to the next level by making it waterproof, sweatproof & transfer-proof without changing the finish. It’s clinically tested to extend the wear of your look for 16 hours – so make sure you’ve got one in your bag if you want your makeup to last through any & all wedding shenanigans.

“Stay spray is the perfect product to finish your bridal face with & carry around for additional sprays throughout the big day,” Ciara said."“It will make the makeup melt into the skin & keep it on all night long!”
