Wedding Makeup ft. CoverFX


One thing that I find extremely important when it comes to wedding makeup, is the face. You need to spend the time to create the perfect base for the rest of your makeup (bronzer, blush, highlight, etc.). Today I am highlighting one of my favorite companies, CoverFX. Once I started using these products, I couldn’t stop! I love the coverage they give to the skin, and the fact that they are free of many nasty chemicals found in many other makeup lines. Nobody wants a breakout on their honeymoon right?? Below I have compiled my top tips for getting a flawless canvas that is HD friendly on your wedding day (or for any photoshoot)! this face pic #1 Make sure you start out with a hydrated face and a great primer. I keep George’s Aloe Vera Spray with me to mist over my clients face prior to applying makeup. For primer, I like to use the CoverFX Mattifying Primer because it has salicylic acid to combat blemishes and it creates a great canvas for the rest of your makeup. I prefer to use a mattifying primer and then go back in later to highlight specific areas of the face. I use a separate primer under the eyes and on top of the lids. The Cover FX Anti-Age Smoothing Eye Primer helps to bind your concealer and eye shadow to the skin, keeping it true to color and lasting for a very long time!   #2 Ready for the most important thing? Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone! There is nothing worse than a foundation line. If you notice your neck looks lighter after your foundation is on, apply a bronzer to the neck AND chest so that everything is even. I have been using the Cover FX Cream Foundation on every bride ever since I discovered it. It provides buildable coverage, with a radiant finish that lasts all day long (they carry a ton of shades, so you are bound to find a match).   **If you want to use a product with lighter coverage, try using CoverFX’s new BB Gel. It has enough coverage to even out your skin tone, but feels incredibly lightweight on the skin. It also has a matte finish.   #3 Next up is concealer. You want your skin to look perfect, so make sure to conceal each and every mark on your face. Say goodbye to any areas of redness, blemishes or whatever else needs to be hidden! Use a slightly lighter shade under your eyes to help brighten up any darkness.   #4 The last step in creating the perfect canvas is to set your cream products with a powder. This will help extend the life of your foundation and concealer. I prefer the CoverFX Mattifying Powder because of it’s velvety texture. It comes in a variety of colors so you don’t have to worry about it looking too white or powdery on your skin. IMG_4793IMG_2897 IMG_0891   IMG_4719 At the end of the day, you want to look and feel beautiful. Use makeup to enhance you beauty and give you confidence. Also, don’t use this day as a time to experiment with new makeup trends. You can vamp up your makeup a bit, but still try to look like yourself! And don’t forget to smile, this is one of the greatest moments of your life. Soak it all up and remember it is just makeup! Your memories will last you much longer than your lipstick ever will! smile**Use code KENDRAFX for 10% off your order over $25 (valid thru 7/31/14) www.coverfx.com

 


Cover FX Haul


haull

I recently was sent some amazing products by Cover FX to try out. So far I have been loving everything.

I am really impressed with the amount of coverage these products provide and how flawless they leave my skin looking.

Here are some of the reasons why I think these products deserve more credit:

-will never irritate your skin

-helps improve your skin over time

-filled with vitamins, minerals, and redness reducers

-free of parabens, fragrance, gluten, mineral oil and talc.

primers

The primers have a silky-smooth texture. They fill in fine lines and help provide an even canvas for foundation.

double

The cream foundation is my favorite. It is very rich, but spreads out beautifully. I am so impressed at the amount of coverage you get.

The pressed powder is really smooth. Use on top of any foundation for even more coverage. I also like to use this as a setting powder on top of any concealer (great for covering pimples).

matte

The matte setting powder is so beautiful to set your foundation. Mine is in the shade medium which adds a bit of warmth to the skin.

illum

I have the illuminator in sunlight. You can use this on top of your cheeks for a gorgeous radiance or over your entire face for an all over glow.

up

The liquid foundation is a thick formula, so I would recommend using a brush to help spread it out.

Same goes with the CC Cream, you only need a little bit. Both will make you look flawless and even!

Valentine’s Day Makeup


I filmed a makeup tutorial dedicated to the day of love! The main emphasis is on the eyes, keeping the face and lips soft. I even added some lashes, which I never do!
