March is the month where winter slowly but surely dies down and makes way for warmer weather. For couples who want to avoid getting married during peak wedding season, March is a great time to plan for your vows. It’s also when some of the best beauty products hit shelves for the spring season—making it the ideal time for spring brides to stock up on the products they might be using on their wedding day. Here are this month’s bridal beauty favourites.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Highlighter in Chillz
Rihanna continues to impress us with every Fenty Beauty release, and her Spring II collection is no different. What we particularly love is the bold and daring Killawatt highlighter in the shade Chillz—a shade that goes against all conventional highlighter colours. While most highlighters pull on the golden side and feature warmer tones, Chillz goes all-out iridescent baby blue shimmer for a shine that’s as bright as a diamond. Use this highlighter both on your cheeks and the eyes for a look we’re totally obssessed with.
Lise Watier HydraForce Lip Balm
Lips still cracked from the winter cold? Ours too. But we’ve found saving grace in the Lise Watier HydraForce Lip Balm, an amazing product that hydrates and nourishes the lips, acting as the perfect base for our lip colour. It also protects the lips from any further drying and cracking. Life saver!
L’Oreal Paris Magic Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is your best friend at the end of a long week of not washing your hair (hey, you don’t want to screw up your colour!). Along with keeping oil at bay and refreshing your locks, dry shampoo can also give your hair some much-needed texture for your bridal hairstyle. We are currently loving the L’Oreal Paris Magic Dry Shampoo, a lightweight formula that doesn’t leave behind visible white residue in your mane. The line has a range of scents, but our fave is Sweet Fusion.
Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette
Upon hearing the news that Urban Decay’s iconic original Naked palette, a bridal beauty favourite, was being discontinued, we shed more than a few tears. But fear not—the new Naked Reloaded Palette includes four brand-new shades that are just as flattering for your wedding-day eye look as the shades in the original Naked palette. The palette’s warm, rosy shades are especially romantic and beautiful for any bride.
Aveda Stress Bath Salts
Stressed about wedding planning? Looking to unwind after a busy few months of pre-wedding events, or even need a soak the night before your wedding day? We’re currently obsessed with the Aveda Stress Bath Salts, which contain the scents of organic lavender, lavandin and cleary sage to promote feelings of calm. The sugar in the scrub exfoliates skin, while the essential oils create the perfect bathtime aroma.
Pantene Rosewater Shampoo
Pantene’s latest line is made with rose water from parts of the Rose Galica plant found to be have moisture-rich nutrients such as vitamin B3 and B5. This sulfate-free, creamy shampoo has a delicious scent, moisturizes dry locks and can even be used on colour-treated hair as well.
Dior Diorskin Forever Fluid Foundation
If you’re a bride who’s spent time prepping your complexion prior to your big day, you’ll want a foundation that enhances your natural complexion while still delivering coverage that lasts until your guests see you and your spouse off at the end of your reception. We are loving the Dior Diorskin Forever Fluid Foundation, which has been reformulated into two finishes, Matte and Glow, to provide you with the exact look that you want for your skin. With a range of 28 Matte shades and 24 Glow shades, you’ll be able to find a shade that matches you perfectly.
Omorovicza Daily Vitamin C
The winter can be pretty harsh on your skin. Luckily, we’ve found just the product to put life back into your complexion—the Omorovicza Daily Vitamin C serum, an amazing skincare product that uses two Vitamin C sources: Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Kiwiberry. Protecting against environmental stress, this serum can be used daily for brighter, firmer and more even-looking skin.
Nude By Nature Sunkissed Pressed Bronzer in Byron Bronze
If you weren’t fortunate enough to make an escape to warmer weather this season but still want to look like you were on the sunny vacay of your dreams, you’ll want to snatch up this product. The Australian-based brand Nude By Nature has just launched their Endless Summer Collection, which, among highlighters and other glow-giving products, includes this gorgeous bronzer that simultaneous gives you a glow and adds some colour to your face. We love!
L’Oreal Paris Ever Pure Repair Remedy Balm
Amping up your hair care pre-wedding is essential to having glossy, gorgeous hair on your day and this mask will repair hair virtually in an instant. Formulated with acai palm and and an nourishing anti oxidant complex, use this nourishing balm one or two times a week for optimum results. After you shampoo apply from roots to ends and leave on for five minutes. Added bonus: it’s 100% vegan and paraben and sulfate-free which means it won’t strip hair colour or leave any waxy build up behind.
