L’Oreal Paris Flash Cate Eye By Infallible
An iconic cat eye is one look we love for your wedding day—but we know this sophisticated, chic look is not one that is easy to obtain. L’Oreal Paris’s Flash Cat Eye by Infallible aims to make drawing the perfect wing easy for even the most weary. The waterproof formula is great for your ceremony (we know you’ll cry, so it’s important to have products that can hold up to this!), and there’s a detachable stencil you can use to guarantee both eyes are expertly winged-out.

Luxury Hungarian brand Omorovicza has come out with their own form of micellar cleanser—in the form of these micellar-cleanser soaked pads, which not only smell divine, but cleanse your skin of any impurities. You won’t feel any sticky residue from this formula, which feels ultra-refreshing and leaves your skin feeling super smooth.
Reversa Retin[A]list Cream
This cream, which plumps skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, allows for controlled, timed release of 0.3% retinol through biodegradable microspheres to ensure that the retinol doesn’t irritate even the most sensitive skin.

Beautycounter Countertime Cleansing Oil
Cleansing oil is now practically a staple in skincare routines, and we know of one clean beauty offering that does an incredible job at this: Beautycounter’s new Countertime Lipid Defense Cleansing Oil. This lightweight oil feels gentle, with the aim to remove makeup and dirt without stripping the skin of its essential oils. It easily lathers into a milk and rinses off without any feeling of residue on the skin.
L’Oreal Paris Lash Serum Solution
If you’re a bride who wants to enhance her lashes without having to use falsies or eyelash extensions, it might be a good idea to try a lash serum. The L’Oreal Paris Lash Serum Solution gives you stronger, thicker lashes, and helps strengthen your lashes to reduce the amount of lashes you lose when you remove your makeup.

This product makes it easy to tame and keep in place even the most complicated bridal hairstyles. The best part? It doesn’t leave your hair greasy or sticky like traditional formulations, due to its use of avocado oil and less alcohol. With the help of the avocado oil, the mousse nourishes and protects your hair and is the perfect pre-styling product to ensure a tame mane.
