I wear a full face of makeup every day, mostly Revlon--foundation, eyeliner, mascara, blush and lipstick.
For an upcoming family simcha, I would ordinarily get my makeup done, but I'm not comfortable with that right now.
I'm looking for recommendations for additional products I might want to use to get a more polished/special look--face and eye primer, bronzer or highlighter, etc.
What might I want to add to my normal routine for this occasion?
Thank you.

Bobbi brown shadow sticks (use two colors)
Liquid liner
Marc Jacobs gold highlighter
Stila lipstick

I also really like becca primers. And I use bare minerals foundation, and eyeshadow primer (any brand) is a must.

I used Estee Lauder double wear foundation because it is supposed to be transfer proof, and I wanted to keep my makeup on my face, not my mask (which I took off for photos and back on for the rest of the event). You can also use a setting spray like Urban Decay all nighter. Sweating leads to transfer, regardless.

I also learned a little bit about contouring and blush placement on Youtube. How you apply makeup makes as much of a difference as what you put.

Mazel Tov!
I use smashbox face primer on my clients. It looks beautiful with most foundations, and revlon is famous for their foundation!
I love the urban decay eye primer (call me basic, but it works!), but what really makes the difference is the quality of the eyeshadow. If you want to splurge, Anastasia Beverly Hills makes gorgeous palettes. If you want to buy singles, colorpop makes the most beautiful, velvety shimmers that are budget friendly.
Becca highlighters 10/10.
For bronzer, Benefit Hoola bronzer in natural bronze proves to be the most flattering across most skin tones.

If you want it to look legit professional, you gotta do lashes!! Use ardell individuals (size medium) with duo lash glue.

Get a good setting spray to keep makeup from running.

I want to add that I did a lot of experimenting in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Make sure you're happy with the look before the night of.

I tried buying travel or sample size products, or ordering from sites that have a good return/exchange policy. Makeup shopping during a pandemic can get really complicated.

First thing I’d add is bronzer and make sure to moisturize clean skin before application. In general, here’s a good step by step:

Wash face with cleanser
Toner (if you have)
Moisturize well, eye cream and Vaseline on lips
Prime eye lids with concealer, set with powder
Apply shadow
Apply eye liner
Apply mascara
Wipe off under eye from excess/fallout
Apply primer (I like smashbox)
Apply foundation using beauty blender
Apply concealer
Set face with powder
Apply powder bronzer and contour
Apply powder blush
Apply highlighter
Fill in brows
Dab off Vaseline
Apply lipliner, lipstick and lipgloss.
Set with setting spray

Eyeshadow can be fun. Different colors and different ways to apply it means that there is a lot more variation in what can look good.
