Everyone dreams of their wedding day, but do we dream of getting our makeup professionally done on our big day? Sure, we might... but we might not want to go to the trouble of looking for someone and trying to see if we like the kind of makeup that they're going to do. And we honestly might want to save some cash and DIY it, which is totally fair.
After all, there are so many details that go into a wedding, and a lot of money goes into paying for those details, too. It can be nice to DIY some things and know that we're doing our best to save where we can.
If we're used to doing our makeup on a regular basis and like beauty products, then doing our wedding makeup ourselves seems like a total no-brainer (or we can enlist a family member or our BFF to help us out). We can totally grab tons of beauty products and each one costs less than $15 (yes, really!). It's a really good, fun excuse to try out some new products and buy new makeup, and, hey, we never need to be told twice to do that.
Here are 25 beauty products under $25 to get the flawless bridal look that we're looking for! Wedding day ready, here we come!
25 Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Lash Mascara Mini
You can find this mini mascara on Sephora's website for $10. Yes, only $10. With all of your wedding expenses, that's the best news ever, right?
You definitely want to wear mascara on the big day, and you really don't need something bigger than a mini size.
Best of all, you can grab this and put it in your purse (or the purse that your best friend or sister or mom are holding for you since you probably don't want to lug that around during your wedding). That way, touch-ups can happen anytime at the venue. Perfect (just like your wedding day will be).
24 Sephora Collection Colorful Wink-It Felt Liner Waterproof
This liquid eyeliner sells for $14 on Sephora's website. You can get it in black, brown, and various other colors, so if you want something more colorful, this brand has totally got you covered. It's nice to know that you can get something really beautiful at such a great price.
If liquid eyeliner is something that you want as part of your bridal look, then this is awesome news. It's pretty cool that you can find so many beauty products for such an affordable price. You can save money and also have fun with your makeup the morning of your wedding, and that sounds like a really good plan.

22 Mini NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Concealer is always a good idea, especially when you've had a late night and want to look put together the next morning. Concealer should also be part of your bridal look since you want to have a flawless look for sure.
This brand will get you there and help you look like perfection on this huge day. The large size is $30 but the mini is $13 from Sephora.

20 Real Techniques Travel Essentials 2.0 Makeup Brush Set
These makeup brushes are $12.93 from Walmart and will be perfect no matter what you're planning for your wedding day.
Makeup brushes are super useful but also maybe something that you forget to buy. Or maybe you ran out and never replaced them which is totally possible, too. It's a great idea to stock up on some of these makeup brushes a few months before your wedding day so you know that you have them when you need them (and you won't realize as you're doing your makeup that, oops, you forgot to buy some makeup brushes and now you're stuck).
19 E.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick Ravishing Rose
You can get this lipstick from Amazon for around $3 or $4. Yes, this is really true. This lipstick is also "long-lasting" according to the product description on the site, which is perfect for your wedding day.
We all have different opinions on lipstick, right?
Some of us go for really bright red shades and would never, ever stray from that, and the rest of us are into bright pink, dark pink, or light pink. So no matter what shade you want to wear as you become a wife, you can spend a few dollars on this cool brand and you'll be good to go.

Maybe you want to go with a red lip because that's your typical shade and you want to really feel like yourself on your wedding day, or maybe your perfect bridal look involves some light pink lip gloss. Either way, you'll be all set.
17 Burt's Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Lipstick, Blush Basin
What kind of lipstick look are you planning on? Light pink? Dark pink? Something in between? A purple-y color? A berry color?

Since you're spending a lot on this wedding because there are just some things that cost money no matter what, this is great news.

Get together with your Maid of Honor and bridesmaids before your wedding day and ask them which lipstick shade they think is good for this occasion.

You might even start wearing them all the time because you love the look so much.
13 Rimmel Stay Matte Primer
Primer is always a good idea.
As the label on this product says, this one is "hydrating" and "pore minimizing" and "shine controlling."

A tinted primer that also has SPF, the mini version of this beauty product is $14 on Sephora. This is a smart product to use on the day of your wedding since it's got sunscreen in it as well.
If you're having a summer wedding, this is basically a requirement since you're going to be out in the sun for hours and hours.
And even if your wedding is in the spring or fall, you never know how sunny it could be. This is a good product since you won't have to apply sunscreen separately or worry about that. It's all part of your primer and it's one less thing to think and worry about.
10 Maybelline New York Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Stick Foundation Makeup

Spend $13.19 on Amazon and get this beauty product. It's not only a good deal but also sounds like such a great product. It's both "shine-free" (awesome) and also a stick foundation so you can easily slide it onto your face. You don't have to worry about caking it on or anything like that.

Things should be the way that you want them to be and you should be able to choose your perfect makeup palette.

Yes, 12 lip liner pencils. How amazing is that?!
Feel free to share the beauty love with your bridal party and give them some of the shades that you're not using (because as fun as it is and as much as you might want to, you probably can't wear 12 types of lip liner on your big day). These shades are gorgeous and whatever you choose will look great on you.

5 Revlon ColorStay Liquid Makeup For Combination/Oily Skin
This foundation is under $10 — it's $9.02 on Amazon.
It's not only an amazing deal but also an amazing product since it's for skin that is oily or a combination of oily and dry.
If your skin is one of those, then you might have trouble finding foundation/liquid makeup that suits your needs.
Maybe some other products work just fine when it's a regular day and you're just going to work or wherever, but on your wedding day, you want things to be easy and perfect (or as perfect as is realistic to expect) as possible. This would be a helpful product to use.
4 e.l.f. Hydrating Face Primer
Are you looking for a face primer? This is useful as the start to your makeup application, and thankfully, you can grab this brand for $5.41 on Amazon.
This one is "hydrating" which is always a good thing, especially since you'll be wearing a lot of makeup on your wedding day. So many people will be taking photos of you, from your photographer to your guests, and it's a good idea to know that you started off your beauty look with a hydrating face primer. The fact that this one is under $15 is awesome news, and more than that, it's less than $10.

2 Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush
For $7.76 on Amazon, you can get this blush from Maybelline in the shade called "Bouncy" which is a beautiful pink.
Isn't that so much fun?! Bouncy is definitely how you want to feel on your wedding day. Well, you probably want to feel that way all the time, or at least the majority of the time, but especially on a day that is the most magical and romantic ever. This is a nice product since you can easily apply it with your fingers and it'll feel really creamy. It's also under $10 which is another thing that you can love about it.
1 Sephora Collection Strays Away Set Of 4 Mini Tweezers
For $10, you can get four mini tweezers to do your own brows before the big day (and have them handy for any touch-ups if you want that). You can grab these from Sephora and they come in cute colors, too.
Maybe you like getting your eyebrows professionally tweezed or waxed, but you also might like doing it yourself. If you're DIY-ing your wedding day makeup, then you're most likely DIY-ing your brows, too.
And the last thing that you want is to wake up on your wedding day and spot a few stray hairs.
These mini tweezers will definitely come to the rescue and you can enjoy the best day ever.
