13 beauty launches to add to your bridal wishlist

The latest products on the market for looking – and smelling – great on the big day

Bronzing gel, £36, Tom Ford at House of Fraser

It's the same every year: when you peel off the winter layers you go into a mild state of shock at how pale your skin looks in (notoriously unforgiving) sunshine. Ghostly skin be gone with Tom Ford's new bronzing gel, which is a quick and safe way to look like you've just spent a week reclining on a sunbed. It dries instantly so one slick with a tanning mitt and you'll be ready to glow!
GALifornia blush, £24.50, Benefit

This summery blusher definitely wins the prize for 'Most Instagramable packaging', but it can do so much more than fish for likes. It's the perfect bridal cheek colour for blushing brides, managing to be both subtle and eye-catching at the same time.
Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent, £42 for 50ml, Estée Lauder

Bronze Goddess is our scent of the summer. When we first sprayed it in the TTKS office, we felt like the sun had just come out and we could practically hear the sound of a chilled jug of Pimms being poured. Bergamot, warm amber and vanilla are all in the mix, but the heady scent of coconut is the note that had us singing its praises. Spritz on for a destination wedding – it couldn't be more perfect.
Fresh Pressed 7-Day System with Pure Vitamin C, £25, Clinique

We'd normally recommend shunning new products before your wedding, but Clinique's new Fresh Pressed system is packed with pure vitamin C and easily introduced to your existing morning regime. This kit has seven sachets of powder cleanser to be massaged and rinsed off daily, whilst two drops of the booster are added to your normal moisturiser for a rejuvenating boost. It's as simple as A, B, vitamin C!
Botanical Shine shampoo and conditioner with geranium, citrus and vanilla, £13 each, Liz Earle

We can't say enough about Liz Earle's iconic British skincare line, so deciding to expand its hair range is a no-brainer for the brand. Launching in July, a limited edition of the Botanical Shine shampoo and conditioner will be available in an uplifting summer scent. The shampoo is packed with nourishing West African shea and organic aloe vera, and the conditioner has strengthening blue seakale and smoothing meadowfoam. Both, however, are sulphate-free so they won't strip away pigment or moisture.
Sun Mist, £18, Pixi

Sun protection isn't often a priority in Scotland, but it should be. Even a cloudy sky exposes skin to potential damage so pop a compact spray in your bag and don't get caught out if you're sitting outside. Pixi has just introduced a Sun Mist to its skin offering and it's non-greasy, smells great and is SPF 30.
Love Relentlessly eau de parfum, £88 for 100ml, Tory Burch

Designed to 'capture the euphoric feeling of falling in love', the latest fragrance from Tory Burch will surely end up a bridal classic. Love Relentlessly fuses softer scents like rose, jasmine and lychee with notes that pack a little more punch like pink pepper, Sicilian lemon and cedarwood heart. The name itself comes from the sign-off Tory's dad used when writing to her mum. Aww!
MattEffect Blotting Perfector, £32, Murad

An essential for the big day: this loose powder instantly absorbs oil and minimises pores, keeping makeup looking freshly applied. Pack this in your bridal clutch and fewer touch-ups will free up your time for partying. It can also be applied on bare skin for a natural, matte look, so consider ditching heavy foundation in the weeks before the big day and your skin will see the benefit.
Invisible Glow Powder Highlighter and Invisible Glow Powder Bronzer, both £25, BareMinerals

After years of heavy contouring and maximalist makeup, we predict the natural look will trickle down to bridal from the fashion week catwalks it was all over back in February. BareMinerals is staying ahead of the curve by debuting an 'invisible' highlighter and bronzer duo that'll give you luminosity and colour without looking like you're about to lipsync for your life.
Lipstick in Orgasm, £21, Nars

Nars' blusher shade Orgasm brings us almost just as much joy as the real thing, so finding out there's going to be a liquid blush and lipstick in the same shimmery shade has tipped us over the edge. Will the new additions to the family prove as popular as the original? There's a lot to live up to: in 2016 the number of blushes sold could have circled the earth 32 times.
Star Magnolia hair mist, £38, Jo Malone London

Having a specialised fragrance for your hair might seem indulgent – what's wrong with your trusty perfume? – but the different formulation means that it's less drying to your hair and adds shine. A first for Jo Malone London, Star Magnolia hair mist has a matching limited edition cologne, so choose between matching the fresh floral scent or layering it with another of the heritage brand's scents.
Double Cleanse, £24, Pixi

You don't double cleanse? How 2016 of you. It seemed convoluted at first, but the grime we spotted still coming off after adding the additional step was enough to justify it in our eyes. Simplify things with Pixi's new Double Cleanse. It contains a solid cleansing oil to melt away makeup and a cleaning cream to condition skin and catch any leftover product.
The POREfessional pore minimising makeup, £26, Benefit

Pesky pores can remain a bugbear even with the most stringent pre-wedding pampering, but don't let it get you down. Instead of overloading on products, check out the latest addition to the POREfessional range by Benefit. There's already a primer and powder, but now a liquid formulation has joined the gang. Dab one or two drops on your face with the pore-blurring sponge and it'll cover imperfections and control excess surface oil for up to eight hours.
