Seven makeup essentials brides swear by
- Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm
Great for brides who don’t like the sticky feeling of lipstick or gloss, this balm gives your lips soft, kissable color.
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm, $15, Clinique.com
- Make Up For Ever Star Powder
This taupe shadow is the ultimate natural shade, and the shimmer is so subtle you’ll barely notice it in pictures.
Make Up For Ever Star Powder, $19, Sephora.com
- NARS Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer
We can’t say enough good things about this primer. The obvious: Your pores look instantly smaller. Plus, it makes skin look super-matte (read: not shiny in pictures), and it helps makeup last better than any other primer.
NARS Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer, $32, Sephora.com
- Dior DiorShow Iconic Extreme Waterproof Mascara
Lots of waterproof mascaras can look chunky, but this volumizing and lengthening formula leaves your lashes completely coated and never clumped together.

- Estee Lauder Double Wear Mineral Rich Loose Powder Makeup SPF 12
This powder stays put but won’t feel cakey or thick _ even on dry skin.

- Jemma Kidd Make Up School Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme
We’re obsessed with this creme. Your skin will look fresh and flawless, but this product is so lightweight you won’t even know it’s there.

This gloss literally stays put for up to 16 hours! Plus, with 32 colors to choose from, there’s one that works for every skin tone.
