There’s nothing better than sharing a special day with people we love, and we happen to think it can be even better when it’s in an exotic location! As much as we might complain about footing the bill for attending destination weddings (see this post from last week) by the time it comes to packing we have to admit: we’re usually really excited. We can’t wait to help the bride achieve her vision of romantic escape, and how can you not love an outdoor ceremony where everyone is wearing their best shades? There’s just something really modern and rock-n-roll about a young jet-set group celebrating a wedding somewhere special, and we’ve teamed up with COVERGIRL cosmetics to make all our destination outfit dreams come true. When it comes to wedding beauty, it’s all about finding and creating a look that will last from the ceremony to the after party, especially in tropical or warm climates. We want to be in the moment (and not in the bathroom touching up all night) so it’s important to find trustworthy longwear makeup products that won’t dry out our skin or make us look cakey. COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation lasts through the night and keeps our skin looking fresh and radiant. And, when it comes to packing, it’s amazing how a single shade of powerful lipstick can seriously make an entire look. Read below for three looks we’ve created for the jet-set bride and guests to wow all summer long:

For the rehearsal dinner night, our wedding guest will want to prep her skin by using a base of COVERGIRL Outlast all-day primer to keep her makeup looking fresh for hours on end. The oil-free primer can be applied in a dime-sized amount to the face before applying tinted foundation. To hide and conceal any imperfections, she’ll use COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous in 842 Medium Beige to match her olive toned skin. We paired an emerald green dress with a great shade of coral lipstick — COVERGIRL’s Outlast 910 Fireball. With a special pair of gold fishtail earrings and a bright patterned scarf, this is one wedding guest who won’t go unnoticed.


Our beach-bound bride will definitely want to use Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation in 825 (buff/beige) to achieve picture-perfect skin tone for her big day. We’ve paired her simple white lace dress with delicate antique costume jewelry pieces and simple pearls. Her overall look will be made timeless with an unexpected shade of bright red lips: “Red Revenge”, color 920 from COVERGIRL Outlast lipstick.


Our maid-of-honor will perform her final duty of the weekend by looking amazing in this red embroidered mexi dress with wooden bangle cuffs. She’ll start her makeup routine with a skin perfecting coat of Stay Luminous Foundation in 820 (creamy/natural). We’ve paired her festive look with a subtle shade of “Phantom Pink” Outlast Lipstick  — the perfect compliment to her bold outfit.
