Nars Blush in Orgasm
They call themselves the ultimate authority in blush, so it's no surprise that Nars' Orgasm shade of powder blush is super popular among brides. Subtle shimmer combines with a soft, peachy pink for a natural flushed-cheek look that blends effortlessly and builds easily. ($30, Nars Cosmetics)

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Blushing Bride
Long wear ability is a must-have for bridal day beauty. Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is self explanatory — it is a solar-baked blush that stays put (and pretty) for up to 12 hours. Aptly named, Blushing Bride has a radiant finish and a rose-inspired color that will leave your cheeks and cheekbones glowing and rosy all day long. ($28, Tarte Cosmetics)

MAC Pro Longwear Blush in Stubborn
The Pro Longwear collection by MAC is intended to last 15 hours or more — which is reason enough to opt for this blush, but there's more. This silky, fine powder is easy to apply and blend and can be used for a natural look, or more a more dramatic one, depending on application. The Stubborn hue is perfect on tons of skin tones for a raspberry-meets-cotton candy color that will brighten up your look. ($28, MAC)
