Bryce Covey and Amy Clarke recently collaborated together on two stunning beauty stories for Once Wed readers. Today I am excited to share the first tutorial in our series for creating flawless skin with a bit of foundation, liquid blush, and the infamous beauty blender. Enjoy, ladies!



Products Used:

Kinar Weightless Moisturizer
Jane Iredale Balance Spray
Beauty Blender
Nars Illuminator in Copacabana
Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation
MAC Sculpting Cream in “Coffee Walnut”
Nars Creamy Concealer in “Custard”
Becca Cream Blush in “Hyacinth


1. Moisturize skin.
2. Wet the Beauty Blender with a Rose Water or Hydration Spray, until it becomes softer and a bit larger. Squeeze the Beauty Blender until the water is fully absorbed throughout.
3. Apply a liquid or cream highlighter to the top of the cheekbones, bridge of nose, inner corners of the eyes, upper lip and chin. Then, blend in the highlighter into the skin, in a bouncing motion.
4. + 5. Apply liquid foundation all over the face and down onto the neck, using the same bouncing motion with the beauty blender.
6. + 7. Apply a liquid concealer to the under eye area, and blend well using your ring finger.
8. + 9. vAdd cream or liquid foundation, two shades darker than the skin tone, to the forehead near the hairline, just under the cheekbones and jawline.  Blend in well with the Beauty Blender.
10. Using fingers, apply a cream blush to the apples of the cheeks and blend toward the hairline using the Beauty Blender.
11. Spray rosewater or hydration spray to the face, giving the skin one last hit of moisture.

The makeup isn’t bad, but I think she looked prettier without it! Those amazing freckles!

This is very nice, but the cynic in me thinks that the first instruction should be:

1. Start with flawless skin.

Her skin was pretty flawless before the makeup! Good tips though, for the rest of us :)

Very good tips to create a nice natural radiating skin tone without using Photoshop.

Would love to see a tutorial on her hair as well – the waves are lovely! And I agree that it definitely helps to start with beautiful skin :) she looked great at the beginning and the end.
