There's nothing like a new beauty product (or two!) to make you feel entirely refreshed. This is especially true if you've just gotten engaged. That's why we wanted to round up several brand-new products that just hit the shelves, all of which are perfect for brides-to-be. From glow-getting skin supplements and makeup infused with skincare benefits (can you see skincare is at the top of the list?) to brushes that will help your foundation and blush go on smoothly, velvety lipsticks in vibrant colors, and more, these new beauty buys will leave you feeling like the very best version of yourself.
And isn't that what every new bride-to-be wants? As you begin to plan your wedding, you'll also want to start thinking about what you want to look like as a bride. Is it a barely-there, you-but-better makeup look that you're after? Then the next year of your life should focus on bettering your skincare regimen. A great makeup artist can make you look like a million bucks, but nothing beats naturally radiant skin. Are you crazy about volumized lashes? Add our new favorite mascara to your shopping cart. Love experimenting with bold lip colors? There's a brand-new matte lipstick you'll go crazy for.
Whether you plan to use these products to help you prep for the wedding, at your pre-nuptial parties, or on the big day itself, it's time to treat yourself to a few new goodies. See the ones that caught our eye here.

Priming and Setting Sprays
We've loved Urban Decay's original All Nighter Setting Spray for a while, so we were thrilled to learn that they were coming out with two new priming and setting sprays. The priming spray—infused with complexion-boosting collagen—contains chia seed, chameleon, and centella to hydrate, even skin tone, and tighten pores, creating an ideal canvas for makeup application. The setting spray protects against the detrimental effects from environmental pollution and creates a light, invisible "barrier" to keep makeup looking fresh all day, no matter what the temperature says.

Armani just relaunched Face Fabric, which is basically a hybrid between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation, and adds a lightweight, second-skin finish. It helps minimize the look of pores, evens skin tone, and adds a subtle matte finish to help keep shine at bay. (Brides who hate wearing foundation will especially love it.)

This has to be the easiest lipstick to apply—and, even though it's matte, it glides on super velvety, smoothly, and doesn't settle into creases or lines at all. It comes in 24 shades—from subtle nudes to bright reds—so you can buy a few different shades to wear for all of your wedding events. We're really into the shade "Control," a deep red that's perfect for adding color to your complexion in the winter.

We love that this primer comes in a stick form, which is great to use on the go. But it's not just a primer—it also adds a subtly pretty (read: not cheesy) luminosity to the face, blurs the look of pores, and mattifies oil. (It's oil free and doesn't contain silicone, like many traditional primers do, which can clog pores.)

We know a lot of brands often come out with supposed "game-changing" mascaras, but we think this one might just be that. It has two different wands, one that lengthens lashes and one that volumizes lashes, but instead of being dual ended, it has a cap you twist to get your desired wand: the first mode, as the cap reads, is the slim, traditional-looking wand that lengthens and stretches, and if you turn the cap to the second mode, you'll get the twisted brush that make lashes appear thicker. Why has no one thought of this sooner?

For those who get easily confused when it comes to formulating a skincare regimen, this 28-day kit makes it really easy. It comes with two products: For the first two weeks, you use the antioxidant lotion morning and night to exfoliate, even skin tone, and brighten, and for the last two weeks, you use the second cream morning and night to hydrate and restore skin. The coolest part is that they work with your skin's natural renewal cycle for optimal results. (Not to mention the fact that the products are TSA friendly and small—there's just enough product in each one for 28 days of use, so you can easily stash them in carry-on luggage for traveling.)

If we're being honest, trying out Gwyneth Paltrow's latest concoction was initially a case of "we'll drink whatever she's drinking." But what we found is that these individually wrapped powders contain many ingredients needed for glowing skin: vitamins C and E, COQ10, carotenoids, and grape seed extracts to prevent oxidative damage and dullness. Just mix one a day into water and drink up to jumpstart your wedding wellness regimen.

Jane Iredale just relaunched their entire brush collection and created soft, synthetic bristles that are animal free. They also work really, really well and help make your foundation, blush, and other makeup products go on seamlessly. Bonus: They claim to never break or shed (we've been using them for a few months now and can attest to the accuracy of that) and they dry quickly after cleaning.
