And for the chance to win every bride’s dream wedding day accessory (beautiful diamond jewelry valued at $5,000), Clinique invites women to submit a video of their best teary-eyed moment – weather watching a tear-jerking movie, jumping in a pool, or peeling an onion – showing Clinique Power Mascara standing up to the test.

Bridal Beauty Week has come to an end. There, there…don’t cry. I’m sad too – this was so much fun! I hope that you all enjoyed yourselves.

For the finale, I’m going to share with you my favorite celebrity brides. I tried to keep the list to 10, but it proved much too difficult. Yes, I realize that many of these marriages were short-lived. But you have to admit that these ladies take some pretty pictures. Hopefully, they will help to inspire your big day beauty.

Bewildered About Bridal Beauty? Three Custom Color Specialists to the Rescue!

jlm Bewildered About Bridal Beauty? Three Custom Color Specialists to the Rescue!
Last month, Trae Bodge and Chad Hayduk, Co-Founders of Three Custom Color Specialists, were the makeup maestros for the JLM Couture Spring 2009 Bridal Show (during New York Bridal Fashion Week).

JHRunway Bewildered About Bridal Beauty? Three Custom Color Specialists to the Rescue!They created a special new lipgloss just for the showcase called, Just Love Me. It’s not yet available on the website, but Three Custom Color Specialists can take phone orders for it. It’s a gorgeous soft fleshy pink with opal and champagne shimmer (see the photo, left).

The bridal pages on their website are a great resource for brides-to-be. They include color charts and step-by-step bridal makeup application techniques. One piece of advice that you won’t find on the website, but Trae wanted to share with Spoiled Pretty readers is this:

“Brides can tend to over do it or under do it. I recommend seeking an expert to collaborate to achieve the best look for your special day.”

Carissa, writer and editor of Hooked On Beauty and professional makeup artist says:

Carissa Carissas Bridal Makeup Must Haves: Day 7That tattoo you got with your friends when you were 19 isn’t something you necessarily want to showcase in a gown. I use a lot of Dermablend Cover Crème, the gold standard for covering anything from tattoos to birthmarks.
