Bridal Makeup Natural Look

If dramatic makeup isn't your thing, you don't have to go completely au naturel for your bridal shower, bachelorette, or rehearsal dinner. These products make it easy to create a natural look—that still looks polished and pretty.

Tinted Moisturizer or BB Cream
Heavy foundations aren't the only option. A lighter, sheerer tinted moisturizer, or a BB or CC cream, will even out your skin tone and provide a hint of coverage. Try Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($20, available at Sephora).

Cream Blush
It's easy — takes just seconds to rub on — and gives a pretty, natural-looking flush. We love Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm ($21, available at Sephora).

Neutral Eye Shadow
If you are eye-makeup shy, go for neutral shades — the effect is subtle, but will still give your eyes that little "something." Your best bet: A palette like Urban Decay Naked Basics ($29, available at Sephora
A "pet-able" version, like Maybelline Full 'N Soft ($6, available at Amazon) will dry soft, not stiff, while still adding just-enough volume to your lashes.

Tinted Lip Balm
If you're not the blaring red-lips type, tinted lip balms can do wonders. They brighten up your whole face without looking one bit overdone — and are so see-through and goof-proof that you don't even need a mirror to apply them. For color that lasts all night, try a buildable formula, like Tarte Lipsurgence ($24, available at Tarte Cosmetics).
