Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow Compact. Dior has made this a staple in their makeup line and for a reason. Because of the combination of all five colors in one compact, you’ll never need another eyeshadow. Don’t forget the three in a row rule: Any three touching will make a great color combination, “side to side, up and down, or diagonal” use the highlighter shade along the brow, the medium shade a base and the darker shade in the crease, for contouring and definition. All your eyeshadow colors, in one little container! For bridal, try colors such as Beige Massai (for a truly neutral eye) or SeaScape (for a cool spring pastel palette)

Beige Massai Seascape

Dior Crayon Liner. Use a complimentary shade to line the top lids of your eyes. The pencil is all-in-one with a blending tip and sharpener that lets the bride sharpen or smudge as much as desired. You’re classic—but you’re modern, you can smudge a little.

Dior MaximEyes.
Top of your look with Dior’s MaximEyes. It thickens the thinnest of lashes. The name says it all?


Chantecaille’s Aquablush. The classic bride sticks to a natural look. Aquablush is a gel stick that provides a dewy look that light to the face and touch. Easy to blend and never streaky or smudgy and lasts way past post-ceremony picture time.

Chantecaille’s Compact Soleil. In order to get a natural matte finish to your face, you must use a light powder. Chantecaille’s Compact Soleil can be used as a bronzer or a blush. It also contains gingko biloba and wild roses to heal imperfections and protect the skin from the amount of makeup on this day that you might normally wear, leaving the skin smooth and radiant and giving you the sun in a shiny container.

Nars has the lips covered – their lipsticks are ennriched with vitamin to increase wearability and keep the color true. Sheer finish creates the most natural, stained-looking lips, while Semi-matte produces a velvety, full-bodied look. Try Venice, Barbarella or Belle De Jour.

Vera Wang Women’s Eau de Parfum. Why not turn to the woman who does classic bridal for your classic bridal fragrance? It’s elegant and sensual, a modern bouquet of bulgarian roses, calla lily and opulent gardenia combined with musks and white woods. I’d trust her with my dress, I’ll trust her with my smell. Stock up on her other fabullous smelling prducts as well: soap, body cream, lotion…ooooh and shimmering powder.

pssst…now Vera does men’s frangrances too,. Nothing’s too good for the man you’re going to marry.
