  1. Korean beauty products

    South Korean products are all the rage right now—and we just had to get to the bottom of the so-called K-beauty craze. It turns out, an array of effective skin care options and all-natural ingredients (tree sap and soapberry, anyone?) make these products from across the globe totally wedding worthy. From unique cushion compacts that create flawless coverage to sheet masks that have taken Instagram by storm, experimenting with K-beauty is the perfect way to get your skin in tip-top shape. Indulge in rich, caviar-infused night cream before your walk down the aisle, or slip a hydrating bamboo mask into your honeymoon luggage. No matter how you slice it, this hot trend is all about bringing out the best in your skin.
