7 Must-Haves for Your Day-Of Beauty Bag

You'll want to keep these items handy to solve any last-minute beauty mishaps.
  1. Beauty Must-Have #1: Fashion Tape

    If you've never used fashion tape, it's basically double-stick tape made for fabric and skin. Why on earth would you need that? Tape down your strapless gown (to keep it from slipping) and use it to keep bra straps from showing. It'll even fix a ripped hemline in a pinch (so that you don't have to fuss with safety pins).

    Hollywood Fashion Tape, $8, Amazon.com

  2. Beauty Must-Have #2: Hairspray

    You'll need it for a finishing touch, a quick spritz between the ceremony and reception, or even as a setting spray over your makeup for a melt-proof look.

    Workable hairspray, $24, Living Proof, Sephora.com

  3. Beauty Must-Have #3: Breath Mints

    Skip the minty gum on your wedding day and get mints instead (Do you really want to get caught chomping on it in your wedding video? Not so much.) Buy in bulk and hand them out to your wedding party and VIPs.

  4. Beauty Must-Have #4: Extra Hair Pins

    Um, yeah hair pins are a no-brainer beauty must-have, but this list would look weird without them.

  5. Beauty Must-Have #5: Sweat Eliminating Wipes

    It's not the most flattering topic, but if you or your groom are anxious about sweating (especially if you're planning an outdoor summer wedding), consider these little miracle antiperspirant sheets.

  6. Beauty Must-Have #7: Nail File

    You know how it goes: Someone is always looking for a nail file at the very last minute. Make it an easy process by throwing a couple in your bag. Playfully printed ones are not only cute, but make it easier to find them among the other contents of your purse.

  7. Beauty Must-Have #7: Blotting Papers

    You want to sparkle (not shine), so keep these on hand to use throughout the day and especially before your photographer starts snapping away. These blotting papers are made with green tea, so they'll not only reduce oil slick on your forehead, but they minimize redness on your face as well.
