Is your big day coming up soon? If you’re going to be walking down the aisle this year, you’re likely thinking about what makeup to wear. One of the most important products (well, besides waterproof mascara, of course) you’ll be putting on your face is foundation—so you’ll want to choose the best one for your skin type and needs in order to put a flawless face forward. Which foundation you use will differ based on whether you have oily skin or dry skin or whether there are specific skin care concerns—like dark circles—you’re looking to cover. After all, you want to make sure you look as perfect as possible in all those wedding photos, as you say “I do,” and when you dance the night away! Keep reading for our best foundations to wear on your wedding day, along with tips for applying foundation like a pro.
Ready to choose a foundation for your wedding day? Here are our best options.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation: If you have oily skin, you’re likely looking for ways to help prevent your complexion from appearing overly shiny throughout the course of your wedding day. That’s why you should choose a matte foundation, like this one. Matte foundations help keep skin from looking shiny so that you can go about your day without having to worry about blotting your face every so often.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation: On the other end of the spectrum, if you have dry skin, it’s a good idea to choose a radiant finish foundation, like this one. Dry skin can sometimes look dull, so applying a radiant foundation can help ensure your complexion looks glow-y when you walk down the aisle and throughout the night.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation: If you’re worried that dark circles or dark spots will shine through your wedding day makeup, reach for a long-lasting, full-coverage foundation, like this one. You can even use it to cover tattoos!
L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup: When it comes to picking the best foundation for your skin, you should take your undertone into consideration. If you have cool skin, you’ll want a foundation that leans cool, and if you have warm skin, you’ll want a foundation that leans warm. This foundation comes in a wide variety of shades to match different undertones.
Once you’ve settled on which foundation you want to wear on your wedding day, you’ll need to know how to apply it—and yes, there is a technique to using foundation! Follow our tips for applying foundation like a pro.
Step 1: Prep your skin with a face scrub. Before you reach for your foundation, prep your skin by exfoliating. This will help ensure you have a smooth, bright base for your makeup, since exfoliating helps rid skin’s surface of dulling dead skin cell buildup. Use the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub. Apply a small amount to skin that’s dry, then massage it in using wet fingers and rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Step 2: Use primer. Primer can help create an even canvas so that your foundation glides on seamlessly. Choose between the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Makeup Primer if you have oily skin or the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer if you have dry skin. Apply your primer of choice all over your face.
Step 3: Apply foundation with a makeup blender. Don’t use your fingers to apply liquid foundation. Instead, squeeze some out onto a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, and dab and roll the foundation onto your face to perfectly blend it in.
And there you have it! Our best foundations for your wedding day, as well as tips for applying foundation. For more bridal beauty tips, here are Wedding Hair and Makeup Dos and Don’ts. Cheers to your big day!
