Being makeup-ready in today’s click-and-post era is easier than ever for many brides as more cosmetic brands incorporate technological advancements and HD-ready, finely infused ingredients into their products.

PRIMER Kick-start your premakeup application with Blur Stick by Milk; a vegan, silicon and oil-free primer that is lightweight and minimizes pores and fine lines while allowing skin to breathe. $36
