7 Must-Haves for Your Day-Of Beauty Bag

  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).

  2. Beauty Must-Have #2: Hair Spray

    You’ll need it for a finishing touch, a quick spritz between the ceremony and reception, or as a panty-hose saver.

  3. Beauty Must-Have #3: Breath Mints

    Skip the minty gum on your wedding day and get mints instead. (Do you really want to risk gum-revealing wedding photos? 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-duh beauty must-have, but this list would look weird without them.

  5. Beauty Must-Have #5: Sweat Eliminator Towelettes

    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 antiperspirant sheets, miracle-makers.

  6. Beauty Must-Have #7: Emery Boards

    You know how it goes: Someone is always looking for an emery board. Make it an easy process by throwing a couple in your bag. These fancy ones come with a case, but clearly you could go the cheap route and get the same effect.

  7. Beauty Must-Have #7: Blotting Papers

    You want to sparkle (not shine), so keep these on hand to use throughout the day and before your photographer starts snapping away.
