Let’s admit it, “girls just wanna have fun” at the final send-off for the bride by her BFFs! So when choosing bridal shower favors, why not consider giving cosmetics-themed favors? Every girl can use another nail polish, lip gloss, or makeup accessory, right? So we gathered some glam goodies for you to choose from–for the lips, eyes, face, nails, hands, and some “tools of the (makeup) trade.” And since you’ll be giving several of each, we’ve kept cost in mind. From a bit pricier items that would delight the bride-to-be…all the way to bulk-buy beauty treats that you can combine into gift bags for each guest!
