3 Steps to Radiant and Glowing Skin

2015/01/img_2628-0.jpg

It seems like everyone is on the quest to find products that give them a glow. A matte face is out, dewy skin is in! I’m going to show you what I do to get that dewy look – without glitter or sparkle.

I really like to use some sort of illuminating moisturizer or primer on my face before applying my foundation. Starting with some type of illuminating product like MAC Strobe Cream will not only help your foundation go on smoothly, but will shine through your foundation and give your skin a healthy looking glow.

The next thing I like to do is to use a foundation that is not marketed as matte. I have dry skin, so the last thing I want is a matte foundation. I go for the ones that are supposed to look like skin, with a light to medium coverage. Maybelline’s True Match Lumi is a great one, but right now I am loving Dior’s DiorSkin Star Foundation. It gives a nice sheen to the face without any shimmer or sparkle. It just looks like fresh, dewy skin.

The last thing I like to do after I apply my contour and blush is to use a highlight. The right highlight will give you that oh so pretty J-Lo glow. I really like this one from Becca, it is the Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. It is a beautiful shimmery gold that looks brilliant on the tops of the cheekbones – no chunky glitter here – just a lovely sheen. Another one I love is The Balm’s Mary Loumanizer – it’s very similar, and I believe a lot cheaper. Don’t go overboard with these highlighters – a little bit goes a long way!

What products do you use to achieve this look?

Thanks for reading! xx
