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 or L'Oreal Paris Visible Lift CC Cream ($8, available at Target http://www.target.com/p/l-oreal-paris-visible-lift-cc-cream/-/A-14582109?ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001&AFID=google_pla_df&LNM=14582109&CPNG=Health+Beauty&kpid=14582109&LID=17pgs&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=14582109&kpid=14582109&gclid=CjwKEAjw2f2hBRCdg76qqNXfkCsSJABYAycPo8FV9v-AZZFXZouxr8QzHZ6Zkj4kv5uwY-kHACZsVhoC3CHw_wcB)). *
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).**
