July is all about easy-breezy summer days and light makeup, especially in the heat! For this month we’ve rounded up some of our favourite new beauty products that will keep your skin looking super fresh, so minimal makeup really is possible. Glowing skin and gorgeous hair is a must on your wedding day, and these products are guaranteed to deliver just that.
Consonant HydrExtreme Charcoal Sheet Mask
Every bride needs a good sheet mask in her kit, and we are currently loving this one from Canadian skincare brand Consonant. This charcoal-infused bamboo sheet includes ingredients such as Tall Reed Extract and Poria Mushroom to help boost the function of your skin cells, as well as Frankincense oil to increase collagen production.
Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel
A good exfoliator is essential in your skin care routine to remove any dead skin cells and replenish your skin’s natural radiance. At the moment we are smitten with the Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel, an amazing peel that is super gentle and non-irritating. If you feel your skin is having issues with dullness and uneven texture and tone, you’ll want to incorporate this into your skincare routine.
Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick
Buxom brings it in their latest launch, the Full Force Plumping Lipstick. This opaque, creamy formula is everything we want in a wedding-day lipstick—it includes hyaluronic acid to smooth any lines on your lips, and inclufes Buxom’s signature plumping peptide complex, giving your lips a tingle and some extra plumpness (which we love for photos).
L’Oreal Revitalift Triple Power LZR Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Fans of hyaluronic acid will love L’Oreal’s newest hyaluronic acid serum, which contains 1.5% hyaluronic acid and is fragrance-free and allergy tested. As one of the ultimate ingredients on the skincare market, helping to make the skin more plump, rejuvenated and overall reduce the apperance of wrinkles, hyaluronic acid as a serum is a serious must in your pre-wedding routine. This formula is great for sensitive skin and doesn’t include any parabens.
Valmont Body 24 Hour
For anyone that’s a fan of Valmont’s cult-favourite Prime 24 Hour, their amazing face and neck cream that feels absolutely divine on the skin, the brand has just come out with the new Valmont Body 24 Hour, an all-over body cream that gives that same luxurious, moisturizing effect. Valmont’s signature scent makes putting this cream on an absolutely heavenly experience, and the hydrating feeling truly lasts 24 hours—from the time you wake up in the morning until well into the wee hours of your wedding reception.

Design.ME Puff.ME Dry Texturizing Spray
For most brides, it might be difficult to achieve a gorgeous wedding-day hairstyle on freshly washed hair. That’s why we love a good dry texturizing spray to achieve a texture that will help the bridal hairstyle of your dreams stay put throughout your whole wedding day. One that we love is Canadian brand Design.ME’s new Dry Texturizing Spray, which provides fullness and gives hair a grip that’s essential to updos and braids. The product works for all hair types and even provides UV protection—perfect if you’re be saying your vows outdoors.
L’Oreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer
If you’ve had a sleepless night before your wedding (pre-wedding jitters can definitely keep you up!), a good full-coverage concealer is a must. We currently love to cover up the most dark of dark circles with the Loreal Infallible Full Coverage Concealer. The product’s oversized doefoot applicator makes it easy to apply on large areas. Although the formula may look thick, it beautifully thins out for a second-skin-like feel, and its lasting power is super impressive.
Dior Backstage Glow Glitz Palette
We love the idea of mixing and matching highlighters to create the ultimate custom glow that makes your skin look absolutely radiant. The Dior Backstage Glow Glitz Palette offers four highlighters that are perfect for just this—you can choose to wear more of a sun-kissed, lit-from-within look, or you can amp it up with a more intense luminosity. Either way, this palette makes it easy for you to achieve your perfect wedding-day glow.
