30 of our hard-to-impress editors tested hundreds of beauty products to find the best of the best. The result? Exactly everything you need to look flawless on your wedding day.
You already have a mile-long list of wedding to-do's. Who has time to figure out which lipstick lasts the longest between creating the seating chart, choosing the reception playlist, and keeping track of all your RSVP's? But of course you want to put your best face forward when saying your "I do's," so what's a bride to do? Fear not, ladies, because we did the leg — ahem, face — work for you when it comes to your bridal beauty look. We recruited our hard-to-impress editors as gorgeous guinea pigs to test run hundreds of powders and potions and bring you the best beauty products of the past year. It's time for our annual Beauty Awards and we've picked the products you'll want in your bridal beauty arsenal!
Those wedding photos will be framed for all to see, so we have what you need to look like the best version of you on the big day. From new editions to perennial favorites, these babies will take you from your engaged girl status to married life. Start by achieving wedding-worthy skin with problem-solving products like Clinique's Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel. Next, find your signature scent by taking a whiff of our absolute faves. Smear on a face-saving mask the night before, like GlamGlow's Supermud Clearing Treatment. And don't forget to swipe on some waterproof mascara — we love L'Oréal's Voluminous Superstar Mascara. (You'll thank us when he's reading his vows!)
