Kaley Cuoco’s wedding day makeup was actually super affordable

A-list beauty on a student budget.

Did you hear? The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cucoco got hitched! Over the weekend, the 32-year-old married her partner, Karl Cook, at a stunning outdoor ceremony near San Diego, California. (For more, see here. Warning: The pictures are friggin' cute.)

The bride wore a stunning lace gown Reem Acra for the ceremony itself before changing into a fun jumpsuit by Tadashi Shoji for the reception.

Kaley's long-time makeup artist, Jaime Greenberg, did her makeup for the big day. As far as bridal beauty goes, the look was perfect — think flushed cheeks, nude lips, bold lashes and a smattering of highlighter on the inside corners of her eyes.

A before-and-after tells a thousand words:

Kaley looked expensive-as-hell on her wedding day but surprisingly, her MUA used a mix of high end and drugstore products.


Speaking to People, Jaime revealed the products she used for Kaley's bridal look. Any makeup artist worth their salt will tell you that the key to a natural-looking base lies in the prep. Before reaching for foundation, Jaime prepped skin with Skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels ($44 at Mecca) and Face Gels ($51 at Mecca) and followed up with using La Mer The Moisturising Soft Cream ($445 at Mecca).


The MUA then primed Kaley's complexion with Cover FX Blurring Primer ($60 at Sephora), before applying CoverFX Power Play Foundation ($58 at Selfridges) with a Beauty Blender ($30 at Sephora). To set, she used Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder ($51 at Sephora).


For blush, Jaime used Cover FX 24K Gold and Rose Gold Highlighting Palette ($77.50 at Beauty Bay), on the apples of Kaley's cheeks.


For the eyes, she opted for COVER FX Shimmer Veil in Magic ($44 at Sephora), along with Burt's Bees Nourishing Eyeliner Pencil in Soft Black ($10 at Amazon) along the lash line. Kaley's lashes were almost visible from space, thanks to a few coats of Burt's Bees Nourishing Mascara ($10 at Amazon).


For the lips, Jaime layered two products: Burt's Bees All-Weather SPF 15 Moisturising Lip Balm ($7.99 at Priceline) and Matte Lip Crayon in Niagra Overlook ($16.99 at Priceline).
