Wash, Cleanse, Blend
The perfect wedding day look starts off with the perfect canvas. Prepare your skin by washing with a gentle cleanser. Once skin is cleansed, dab dots of COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous foundation on your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Now comes the most important step for a natural look, blending! Using your fingertips, or better yet a makeup sponge or foundation brush, gently blend your foundation in a circular motion until you achieve your desired coverage.
