8 Beauty Bag Must-Haves For Your Wedding Day
Let’s go shopping, pretty please?
The good news for blushing brides? That pre-wedding glow is worth way more than anything a few hours in a makeup chair will get you. That doesn’t mean you want to miss out on the fun of stocking up on beauty bag supplies, though. With the ordeal that is modern-day wedding planning, picking out some top-notch beauty products is part of the package. Here are our go-to essentials for bridal beauty bliss.
A good exfoliant

Beauty starts long before you layer on the pigments, so keep it clean and fresh with a good face exfoliant, such as this local sugar scrub from Aim HI, that will get your skin feeling radiant.
A très romantique scent
Keep it toned down and delicate with soft and subtle feminine tones that won’t overpower the moment (or send your attendants into sneezing fits!). This Chloe selection is aptly named Love Story—plus, its pretty little bottle will pull double duty as a prop in your photog’s detail shots.
A dewy cream blush
Glowing touches are our favorite bridal looks and this ultra-dewy Givenchy blush is perfect, with just the right amount of shimmer and a glossy consistency.
A subtle shimmery eyeshadow
We’re all about soft blush shimmers at the moment, with gold undertones that will brighten up your face, make your eyes look larger and add a soft sparkle to your look. Naked3 has just the right rosy spectrum for anything from smoky styles to more natural tints.
A kissable lip balm
