7 Products Every Bride Needs On Her Big Day

Every bride stresses about the big day. Will your makeup turn out right? Will your hair fall flat? Here, we’ve found seven products that will help ease your woes, and deserve a spot in your wedding-day beauty kit.


1 / 7

Photo-Friendly Foundation

Every bride wants flawless skin, but it also has to look good in photos. Look great in person and on camera with Smashbox Photo Filter Powder Foundation, which features a unique light filter technology that acts like a photo filter for your face by diffusing light in different directions to blur your surface imperfections. Plus, we love that it never looks dry or cakey, even after six to eight hours of wear. $42, sephora.com

Non-Greasy Body Moisturizer

Smooth, dewy skin that looks healthy and youthful is a must, especially if your dress reveals a lot of skin up top. Harnessing the rich, skin-softening effects of omega oils and firming effects of marine extracts such as seaweed, ESPA Optimal Body TriSerum helps even out your skin tone while boosting radiance for a head-to-toe glow. $75, us.espaskincare.com

Strong-Hold Hairspray

The ultimate strong-hold spray for keeping your bridal updo in place, Kérastase Couture Styling Fix Fabulous delivers high shine and sculpting power without making your hair look stiff or fake. And, you can spray it onto a comb to smooth any last minute flyaways. $37, kerastase-usa.com


4 / 7

Makeup-Removing Wipes

Making a makeup mistake can be costly if you’re rushing to make it down the aisle in time. Having Korres Greek Yoghurt Cleansing & Make-Up Removing Wipes on hand to fix a quick slip can save the day. The bonus? Have your bridesmaid throw them in your bag once the festivities are over so you can easily remove your makeup before bed when you’re too tired for a deep-down cleanse. $15, sephora.com

Smile Touch-Up 

Three-in-one touch-ups for your smile (they combine a toothbrush, floss and breath mints into one easy step), GO SMiLE Touch Up Smile Perfecting Ampoules in Fresh Mint are a must-have for every bride. Use one before you walk down the aisle so your first kiss is minty fresh, and another one after dinner before you hit the dance floor. They’re tiny and easy to stow anywhere you may need them—you can pass some along to your bridal party too! 28-count, $25, gosmile.com

Makeup Setting Spray

Inspired by professional makeup artists, L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Makeup Extender Spray will not only keep your makeup looking fresh throughout your ceremony, but also long afterward at the reception, too. We also like the superlight formula (not the least bit sticky), which includes special blotting spheres that help keep oiliness at bay so your skin won’t look shiny in photos. $14, target.com

7 / 7

Long-Wear Lipstick

You want a formula that won’t budge, but also doesn’t look too dry. Enter Laura Geller Luscious Lips Liquid Lipstick. It’s highly pigmented and infused with a special texturizing gel that goes on as a liquid and dries to a semi-matte finish, but never dries out your lips. Available in seven shades (this one is Peach Buttercream—a perfect choice for the bride who’s embracing a more natural beauty look), this long-wear lipstick gets our vote for all these reasons and more. $21, ulta.com
