Every bride craves that wedding day lit-from-within look. Want to amp up your glow without adding unwanted shine? Make the first step of your beauty regimen a radiance-enhancing primer. Along with giving you a healthy-looking complexion, it will also help your makeup go on more smoothly and last longer. Here, three of our current favorites.

Dior Glow Maximizer Light Boosting Primer
Don't be fooled by the super-light texture: this one packs a punch. You can wear it under or mixed with your foundation to help eliminate shadows and make it at least seem like you're well-rested. (Because let's be honest: when it's the night before your wedding, you probably aren't going to be.) It can also be used as a highlighter on the bridge of your nose and cheekbones to make your face look super sculpted in photos. ($42, Sephora)

CoverFx Illuminating Primer
Not only does the ultra-hydrating formula keep flaky skin at bay, it also contains vitamins C and E to defend against environmental stressors. (In other words, it keeps your skin looking bright and youthful.) So start using this one way before your wedding day as a final step in your skin-care regimen. ($38, CoverFx)

Burberry Fresh Glow-Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance No. 01
If you're one of those girls who can never make your skin look dewy enough, this is your hero product. It has little reflective pearls to camouflage imperfections, so if you don't like to put on a lot of makeup, you can wear this one without foundation or concealer on top! ($48, Burberry)
