I’m back with another post on how bareMinerals helped me get wedding ready, and in this case, I’m talking rehearsal dinner prep. In the last post, I introduced the new bareSkin foundation and how I am finally learning to use a lightweight foundation instead of wearing just powder on top of a moisturizer – sounds crazy, but yes, I’m just learning to use foundation

When getting ready for my rehearsal dinner, I started with the bareSkin serum one shade darker than my skin tone as my makeup base and dusted the sheer mineral veil to set (the veil will lighten the color a tad). I then went on top of that base with the Well-Rested face and eye brightener to highlight certain areas of my face. It contains light-reflecting minerals to even skin tone while minimizing pores. It’s also good for creating contours to certain areas like your cheekbones or right above the arch in your eyebrow. This process has become my go-to routine when applying foundation and highlighter. 

I’ve also found that Well-Rested is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up for tired eyes or rejuvenating your concealer when you’ve got somewhere to go after work. It’s sheer and doesn’t get cakey, so it’s completely fine to add on top of your makeup that you already have on. I can compare it to YSL’s Touche Éclat that I’ve used in the past. It works just as well in my opinion and is about half the price tag.

And yes, I did do my own makeup for my rehearsal dinner AND these bridal portraits!
