How I fake a glowing complexion with makeup
The weather has picked up a bit and the tiny sliver of sunshine has given me a Springtime feeling. I’m putting my dark red lipstick down and picking up the glitter.
Well not exactly glitter but I’m fancying looking a bit more dewy today. Does anyone remember in the early 2000s when glow was IN in a big way. E.g. JLo. I think it’s coming back. I’m shiny enough without makeup but mainly on my forehead and nose, where it’s not wanted. You want to shine on top of your cheekbones, under the eyes and on the browbone.
What I do to get Glowing
Today I used MAC Studiosculpt foundation. It’s full coverage but has a satin finish. I’ve been wearing L’Oreal Infallible Mattifying foundation for a couple of weeks and it’s so mattifying, it’s good to have a change. The Studiosculpt gives a lovely finish, covers any discolourations and gives a natural finish.
I tend to apply highlight after the rest of my makeup. I use two formulations if I’m really going for it.
Today I used Glow by Topshop and MAC Soft and Gentle. I dot for cream under my eye, over my cheekbone and up to my brow bone. I blend with my finger so I don’t lose any product. Then dust the powder over.
Highlighters, I find are much of a muchness. I have expensive ones and very cheap ones and their not so different in terms of intensity and staying power, I’m quite happy with my £3 MUA powder. Benefit Moonbeam or Highbeam are lovely (apparently Technic does a budget dupe).
A glowy face couldn’t be easier really and it’s lovely for the summer.
