COVERGIRL Lasting Look

my wedding day is something i will never forget. the opportunity to marry the person i love most for time and all eternity is one of the greatest blessings of my life. obviously styles have changed a bit in the last twelve years, but flipping through the most recent issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, i was reminiscing and inspired to put together a look that can be worn to any wedding reception or engagement party. by sticking with neutral colors this romantic style ensures you will look as good as your love is strong for years to come. i’ve partnered with COVERGIRL today to show you how to create this romantic makeup look on your own.

by sticking with neutral colors this romantic style ensures you will look as good as your love is strong for years to come. follow the tutorial below to re-create my look and read on to find out how you can be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to New York City from the experts at Martha Stewart Weddings and COVERGIRL!

COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation

first step is to apply foundation.

how to apply: apply an even layer of foundation onto the skin. by pumping COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous foundation onto the back of my hand, i can use that as a palette to dip my foundation brush into. using a swirling motion, i brush the foundation evenly onto my face for all day radiance and a perfect complexion.
COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Natural Rose & Bronzer in Golden Tan

next step is adding a soft glow with blush and bronzer.

how to apply:  brush a sweep of COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush to the lifted part of the cheek for a soft-pink radiance. for added glow, i blend color into the hairline with COVERGIRL Cheekers Bronzer.
COVERGIRL Eyeshadow Quad in Blooming Blushes
next step is a neutral eye. 

how to apply: first, illuminate by covering the base of your eye with the lightest shade. then, enrich by sweeping a pop of color from crease to eyelash. frame your eyes by blending a slightly darker shade into your crease and, with the darkest shade, create a “V” along the outer half of your eyelid. here, i use the COVERGIRL Eyeshadow Quad in Blooming Blushes which allows for easy application with a simple, step-by-step system.

COVERGIRL Ink It! Liner in Intense Black
next, define your eye with liner... 

how to apply: beginning from the inner part of the eye, make short swift strokes across the lash line. this COVERGIRL Ink It! liquid liner provides strong color, so it’s sure to stick through whatever your big day holds.

COVERGIRL Lashblast Volume Mascara
… and add mascara!

how to apply: twist wand from base to tip of lashes. add multiple coats for a dramatic look. just a few quick strokes of COVERGIRL’s The Super Sizer Mascara blasts lashes with instant volume with a full, fanned out lash.

COVERGIRL Outlast Longwear Lipstick in Plum Fury
finish the look with soft lips.

how to apply: balance a more neutral eye with a statement lip, here with COVERGIRL Outlast Longwear Lipstick in Plum Fury. the longwear formula contains lip conditioning oils that lock in color and moisture so your statement of love will stay on your lips for all of the day’s activities.
