6 Hot Summer Makeup Essentials for Brides

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Ah, summer. The sun is shining brighter, and it makes us want to play…with makeup! Channel your inner sun goddess with these five makeup essentials that’ll make you glow through pre-wedding festivities all summer long, while you save your bridal skin from the harming effects of the, you know, actual sun.

1. If there’s anything we want to do this summer, it’s look like always-aglow beauty queen Chrissy Teigen. Now all of us can get our Chrissy glow on with the Becca X Chrissy Teigen ‘Glow Face Palette’! This pretty palette includes a shimmering highlighter in two shades (Rose Gold & Beach Nectar), a near-perfect bronzer and a creamy blush. This handy little compact is our go-to palette for the season!

2. Get ready to pucker up to summer with ‘Love At First Bite‘—one of MAC’s newest lipstick colors for summer. It’s the prettiest shade of fuchsia, and looks great on every skin tone, poolside, beachside and beside your boo at barbecues, cocktail soirees and more pre-wedding celebrations!

3. Get a sultry, smokey eye with Clarins’ Sunkissed Summer Eyeshadow Palette for those hot summer nights in Houston. Feel free to mix it up and combine all of the shades—it won’t crease and lasts super long.
