Five Easy Ways To Get Luminous Glowing Skin

Hey Guys 😀

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.

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.

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.

I’m totally crushing over the Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in 02, a gorgeous peach, and 05, a soft pinky-rose.

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).

June Favorites

Hey guys and dolls,

So July is here and that means its that time of month again…where I share all my favorite beauty and makeup products from this past month 😀

June_Beauty_Favorites

This time around is a bit different because Ive been traveling but of course Ive brought some of my most loved and used products.

June_Beauty_Favoryes_Smashbox_CCCreamFor my skin Ive been loving the new Smash Box CC cream. I have it in the shade Light/Medium. The coverage is great for a CC type cream, it really does a great job at color correcting, especially the redness around my nose and chin. It makes my skin glow and its feels very light weight. Its super hydrating and I haven’t experienced any breakout with it either. The finish is on the dewy side. I do find that I tend to get a little extra shiny at the end of the day but a little bit of MUFE HD powder on top solves the problem.

June_Beauty_Favorites_MUFE_Pro_Finish_PowderIve also been really impressed with the MUFE Pro Finish Powder. I use it on its own for light coverage or use it on top of the CC cream to set and to add a little more coverage!!

June_Beauty_Favorites_MAC_Concealer

The Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20 I usually use in winter for covering blemishes. But now its way too light and it works amazing as an under eye concealer and brightener. It doesn’t crease on me and is definitely long wearing. It’s super natural looking too. Really loving this product 😀

June_Beauty_Faves_LayraMercier

The Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder is just WOW for setting the under eye area!!! Its almost translucent and really reflects light nicely. Its really perfect for light skin tones.

June_Beauty_Favorites_UrbanDecay_24/7_PencilIve been keeping my eyes pretty simple these last few weeks. So for a pop of color I like to add the UD 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Covet in my lower waterline.

June_Beauty_Favorites_D&G_Eyliner

I also like to use the D&G Crayon Intense eyeliner in nr. 22 in my waterline. Its a fun alternative to a nude color in the waterline. It brightens the eye area but in a funky fresh way.

June_Beauty_Favorites_Mac

Im all about fun and bright lips in the summer especially corals. Razzler Dazzler from Mac is my ultimate fave at the moment. Its the perfect light peachy coral pink. Love it!!

Well those were some of my most used and loved products of the past month. What were your most loved beauty items?
