If you're getting married anytime soon, heading to a wedding ... or just interested in knowing what the ultimate stay-put, stay-glam products on the market are, we've got you covered.

Lauren Kay of The Knot magazine joined TODAY Monday to discuss their 2016 Beauty Awards. The winners are in and it looks like chapel-bound women will be on the lookout for the following products this year.


Dolce & Gabanna foundation
Dolce & Gabanna

Dolce & Gabbana Beauty Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation, $61, Nordstrom

Coverage: check! Dewy finish: check! Yup, this one's a winner in our books.


Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer

Pop Lip Colour + Primer, $18, Clinique

With brights, pinks, corals and more, we're pretty sure there's a shade for everyone in this line. And, yes, they last for hours. That's what the included primer does so well.

Eye shadow

Bobbi Brown eye shadow
Bobbi Brown

Eye Shadow, $25, Bobbi Brown

We've been using these Bobbi Brown shadows forever. They stay put without any clumping up or creasing. Imagine that.


Hourglass Illume Sheer Color Trio in Sunset

Illume Sheer Color Trio in Sunset, $62, Hourglass

A bronzer, blush and highlighter all in one means you won't have to pack too much for the honeymoon.

Eye liner

Covergirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner

Intensify Me! Liquid Liner, $8, Covergirl

Can't all liners have paddle-shaped ends like this? It makes it so much easier to draw a perfect line.

Brow definer

Chanel Crayon Sourcils

Crayon Sourcils, $29, Chanel

These pencils are the farthest thing from "harsh." They practically look like powder once blended in, which makes them perfect for natural-looking makeup. Because a bride should look like herself (not like she's wearing a mask) on the big day.

False lashes

Ardell false lashes

Ardell Short Individual Flare Black Lashes, $5, Sally Beauty

Everyone knows a cluster of false lashes, rather than a huge strip, look way more natural. These individual lashes take the (wedding) cake in that category.


L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara
L'Oreal Paris

Voluminous Waterproof Mascara, $7, L'Oreal Paris

Cry as much as you want; this mascara will stay in place. (And your eyes will look HUGE!)

Hair spray

Oribe Superfine Hair Spray

Superfine Hair Spray, $33, Oribe

We love this spray because it's light enough to avoid helmet head ... but strong enough to maintain the shape of your 'do no matter how long you're out on the dance floor.

Dry shampoo

TRESemme Dry Shampoo

TRESemme Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo, $5, Target

You can keep your hair in tip-top shape from the rehearsal dinner all the way through to the brunch afterward with this helpful stuff.

Gel polish

OPI Infinite shine

OPI Infinite Shine 2 Lacquer, $12, ULTA

With a three-step process and long-lasting formula, this is almost like getting a gel manicure. No chipping!

Nail polish

Essie Ballet Slippers

Ballet Slippers, $8, Essie

This shade has been a bridal staple for a long time now, and it's winning hearts again this year.
