It’s officially wedding season—and that means you probably have one or two (or more!) bridal showers to attend. But every bridal shower is different—some are super-casual, while others are a little more formal. That means how you do your makeup should depend on the kind of bridal shower you’re attending (or your maid of honor is throwing, if you’re the bride!). Below, we’re sharing our four favorite bridal shower makeup ideas for brides-to-be and guests for 2018, along with the makeup products you’ll need—like foundation, mascara, and lipstick—to create each makeup look.

Bridal Shower Makeup Idea #1: Red Lips

If a fancy bridal shower is in your future, then you can’t go wrong with classic red lips. There’s a reason why this makeup look has been maintained its popularity over the years. Once you decide on red lips, all that’s left to choose is the finish of your lipstick. For a matte look, wear the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Devil’s Matte-vocate Red; for a shiny look, wear the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Enamel Red. Regardless of which lipstick finish you pick, prep your lips first with a lip scrub, then dab on a tinted lip balm. Keep the rest of your makeup simple so that your red lips are the star of the show!

Bridal Shower Makeup Idea #2: Brushed-up Eyebrows

It’s official: Full eyebrows are in—and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. If the upcoming bridal shower on your calendar is more low-key, rock brushed-up eyebrows and pair them with neutral face makeup and a touch of lip balm. The good news is, you can get full-looking, brushed-up eyebrows in just one step with just one eyebrow makeup product: the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Mascara. Pick the shade that’s closest to your natural eyebrow hairs and use the angled skinny brush in short, upward strokes to brush clean eyebrows.

Bridal Shower Makeup Idea #3: Winged Eyeliner

One of the best party makeup looks is winged eyeliner—and it’s definitely a good option when you have a bridal shower on deck. Winged eyeliner can be totally customizable—if you’re a guest at the bridal shower, opt for traditional black winged eyeliner, which you can draw on using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner in Black, since it goes with everything. If you’re the bride, switch things up with a colorful winged eyeliner look. A bright color, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Electric Blue will really pop against your white outfit. Pair your winged eyeliner with a nude lip, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Nudist, so that all the attention stays on your pretty eye makeup.

Bridal Shower Makeup Idea #4: Luminous Skin

Whether your bridal shower is at a friend’s house or a swanky restaurant, you can’t go wrong with luminous skin. It’s always in style! To get the look, first prep your skin with a radiant finish primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer, then follow up with a lightweight highlighter lotion, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer. Highlight your eyebrows with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Raiser Highlighter Duo, and apply a coat of mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara, for lashes that appear more voluminous. Finally, apply a shiny pink lipstick, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Burnished Blush.

Of course, before putting on your makeup and heading to a bridal shower, make sure you have your skin care routine in check. A proper skin care routine will ensure your makeup will go on smoothly and look as beautiful as possible.
