If wedding bells will be chiming in your near future, a new giveaway aims to get you decked out for your big day, from head to toe — literally.
According to PopSugar, Benefit Cosmetics has just launched a brand-new giveaway in conjunction that will not only “give you perfect, face-framing eyebrows, but if you’re lucky you could also win a wedding gown.”
Here’s how PopSugar says the contest works: when brides-to-be stop in a Benefit Boutique for a free Bridal Brow Mapping session and makeover to whip their brows into shape from now until Aug. 31, they are automatically entered to win a free Morilee wedding gown by Madeline Gardner.
The winner will be announced on Sept. 1, says PopSugar, and the prize will be a gown worth about $1,200 — all for being pampered by Benefit!

In what is likely the most highly-anticipated event of the year, American actor Meghan Markle walked down the aisle to be married to Prince Harry — and that walk was certainly one to remember.
According to ELLE, the new royal made her way down the aisle in bold fashion, first entering St. George’s Chapel on the arm of her mother, Doria Ragland. As she reached the Quire — or the part of the chapel “where the main royal wedding guests are seated” — ELLE reports that Markle escorted by Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles of Wales.
While Markle did have company making her way to the alter, ELLE says she made much of her trip alone, “making a feminist statement by being alone for the majority of her walk.”
Not only that, but Markle was not “given away” by Prince Charles, but instead walked to Harry on her own — something that CNN reports as being a historic move.
“No other royal bride in the UK has walked unescorted down the aisle at their wedding ceremony,” CNN says. “Markle’s decision indicates that she wishes to assert herself as a strong, independent woman who is prepared to challenge royal norms.”
If being comfortable on your wedding day is a top priority, GapBody is here to help.
According to InStyle, Gap has just launched a “capsule collection of bras, panties, and pajamas for exclusively for brides.” Called Love by GapBody, the line offers all the sweet and dainty details that come to mind when you think ‘bridal,’ but offer a level of comfort that is far from typical when it comes to bridal undergarments.
InStyle says that pieces from the collection include “robes, pajamas, and swim cover-ups” that are “adorned with delicate lace and ribbon detailing and incorporate hints of blue,” all of which are designed with the bride in mind.
“As a brand, we encourage and empower all women to be their best self,” Gap’s Chief Product Officer Wendi Goldman told InStyle. “The Bridal Collection for Love by GapBody was designed with the bride in mind by celebrating her commitment to feeling great in her own skin and confident in her true self on her big day. We want her to love having pretty comfortable options, love wearing next to nothing, and love wearing something white or blue.”
As for the price range, InStyle says that pieces from the collection start at just $11.
