From full brows to barely there lip color, the no-makeup makeup look popped back up on the fashion runways this fall. But unlike some other high-fashion beauty trends (we’re looking at you, neon bright shadow), this one enhances your natural features—meaning it’s a breeze to adapt for all of your big bridal moments. To help you pull it off, we turned to Estée Lauder for simple how-to tutorials for three unique looks. The essential tool for all of them? Their easy-to-travel with, no touch-ups needed Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup. Below, check out the pretty and polished beauty looks you’ll definitely want to try for your bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner or even your wedding day.
