We asked top makeup artists to spill the prized contents of their kits. Here, the seven stellar cosmetics they think every bride should own.

1. Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara. Makeup pros praise this wavy wand, which strategically places more mascara on some lashes than others. The end result? A beautiful wide-eyed look that won't smudge (dior.com).

2. Maybelline New York Fit Me! Concealer. "Creamy and never cakey, this formula covers red spots and dark shadows flawlessly," says Charlotte Willer, a makeup artist in New York City (find it at drugstores).

3. Lancome Le Crayon Khol. "Liners can be too hard or too soft, but this one is just right," says Denise Markey, a New York City makeup artist. Sharpen it to a point for a thin line, or go dull for a smoky look (lancome-usa.com).

4. CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation. Pat McGrath, global creative design director for P&G Beauty, relies on this amazing fluid, which hydrates naturally with cucumber water and "offers great coverage," she says (find it at drugstores).

5. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick. Experts love that each one of its 19 glossy colors glides on evenly and moisturizes without migrating or clinging to dry spots (yslbeautyus.com).

6. Chanel Soft Pressed Powder in Peche Tendre. "Swept over the cheekbones and the bridge of your nose, this highlighter gives skin the perfect dose of sunshine," says Jenna Menard, a makeup artist in New York City (chanel.com).
