So glowing skin has been all the rave for the past year or so and its definitely not going out of style any time soon, especially with spring around the corner. And no wonder since luminous skin is the perfect answer to achieving that coveted Victoria Secret look. So keep reading on for my five easy ways to get that naturally lit from within glow.
1: Use a a bb cream or tinted moisturizer instead of a heavy coverage foundation. Since they tend to contain lots of hydrating ingredients its an easy and full proof way of quickly achieving naturally glowing skin. The Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream and the Bobbi Brown BB Cream are some of the best on the market in terms of coverage and dewy finish.
2: Use foundations that have a dewy rather than matte finish. Look for certain key words in products like luminous and glowing. Some of my favorites are the Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation and the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. The Nars Sheer Glow is great for those who want more of a satin finish.
3: If your makeup stash is comprised mostly of heavy coverage and matte foundations try adding a drop or two of a liquid Illuminator to your foundation to add a slight sheen. I love using the Mac Strobe Cream on fair skin with pink undertones. For my olive skinned folk the Josie Maran Liquid Illuminator is fab.
4: Use a cream blush instead of powder. the cream consistency will blend more efficiently to the skin an almost always leave a fresh dewy finish. I’m totally crushing over the Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in 02, a gorgeous peach, and 05, a soft pinky-rose.
5: If you want to contain your dewiness to specific areas mainly the cheek area try applying a cream highlighter to the cheek bones for that perfect j-lo glow. The Mac Cream Color Base in Diamonds is a perfect golden-pink champagne shade with beautiful light reflecting qualities. I also like the TopShop Glow in Polished for a pearlescent touch. If your not into cream products try a shimmery highlighter like the Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade or Rio (two of my faves from the line).
I’m absolutely obsessed with luminous glowing skin. I love the way it reflects light off the skin for a fresh and natural look that makes you look and feel younger. What are some of your favorite ways and products for achieving glowing skin, do you use any of the methods mentioned? Oh and I also made a video on the topic, I placed it below in case you missed it!!
