Weddings are the ultimate beauty moment. I can remember everything from my wedding day from what I had for breakfast right up until the moment my head hit the pillow when it was all over. My makeup is something that was really important to me on that day. I wanted a subtle look that would last the entire day and wouldn’t wear off during our vows or while we were cutting the cake. As my best friend prepares to walk down the aisle, I feel like I’m reliving my ultimate beauty moment while preparing for her wedding. I want those same things in my makeup look for her big day, something subtle but long-lasting. Makeup that will compliment my skin and work to cover up my problem areas. I decided to go with a subtle wedding makeup look for my best friend’s wedding and I’m reaching for all COVERGIRL products to do it.
I want this makeup look to be subtle and complimentary to my dress as well as last throughout the entire day and night. In order to accomplish this, a great foundation routine is key. I’m going to walk you through the steps to ensure you can get a beautiful, subtle, wedding makeup look.
I started with the COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Anti-Aging Foundation Primer. This primer will work for all skin tones, which is one of my favorite things about it. It preps skin for a smooth and flawless foundation application. It’s a lightweight, creamy formula that applies clear. The first step is to apply this, I used my fingertips, to apply this all over my face.
The primer contains an amino-peptide complex known to improve skin’s texture and glycerin that hydrates to help firm skin’s appearance giving you the perfect canvas to start with for your makeup look.
For foundation, I’m using both the COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Instant Wrinkle Defying Foundation Cream & COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation. I started with the cream in my t-zone. I applied it with the makeup sponge provided and covered up my under eyes and redness. The COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Instant Wrinkle Defying Foundation Cream is the #1 anti-aging foundation which covers fine lines and veils wrinkles by floating over them, rather than settling in and accentuating them. The Olay serum combines ingredients like vitamins, skin conditioners and antioxidants that leave your skin feeling fabulous while helping to improve your skin’s texture as you wear it. I really liked how lightweight this was and how it feels on my skin.
For the rest of my face, I used a cosmetic sponge to apply COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation. This foundation instantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles, firms skin and improves tone. It really evened out my skin tone and gave me a flawless finish. It’s medium to high coverage that optically blurs areas of contrast, such as texture or tone, while diffusing light. This is something I was really impressed with and knew would photograph well which is important in wedding photos. The soft focus effect it gives to your skin makes it look as though you’re lit from within.
I finished off this look with a few other COVERGIRL products, an eyeshadow quad in Blooming Blushes, lined my waterline with COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire, and applied my COVERGIRL Clump Crusher mascara. I added a bit of COVERGIRL Cheekers blush and Cheekers bronzer to warm up my face and give this subtle wedding makeup some dimension.
For me, the results were great. I have been a long-time fan of COVERGIRL and I have known that I could trust in the COVERGIRL brand to help me create my go-to bridesmaid wedding look.
I’m so excited for my best friend and her special day and I can’t wait to show you all photos. Check out the COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless products for your own beauty moment and be sure to let me know what you think!
