As the old saying goes, every bride needs something old, new, borrowed, and blue for her wedding day. And one necessary thing that ever bride also needs that somehow didn't make it into the classic phrase? A solid arsenal of makeup. Luckily for you, we rounded up the 25 top-rated makeup products at Nordstrom to help get you started.

While you may have pros on deck to glam you up for your wedding day itself, there are plenty of other events (Engagement party! Bridal shower! Bachelorette!) that will require a steady hand and a few lipsticks and eyeshadows of your own. The good news? Nordstrom—and its seemingly endless selection of beauty products—has got you covered. Whether you need an entirely new eyeshadow collection or the perfect shade of lipstick to match your white dress(es), you'll be able to find it.

Thanks to a number of helpful customer reviews, we selected 25 of the top-rated makeup products that Nordstrom has to offer so you can get started creating a bridal beauty collection of your very own.
