Suffering from lack-luster skin due to all the partying and holiday shit you’ve been shoving down your throat? Yea me too but I’ve rummaged through my mooge and found some products that will help give some glow to our runned down faces. If you’re one of those chicks with flawless skin then feel free to skip this entire post!
It’s All About That Base (I had to type that, catchy song sorry) – You can never use too much moisturizer and I pile on loads of the *Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Cream prior to anything else so that everything blends well without streaking. Now I have several primers to choose from with different finishes to them. The Chanel Le Blanc De Chanel is the most subtle out of the bunch, it gives a very iridescent sheen to the skin without the use of shimmer. The *Eve Lom Flawless Radiance Primer is more of a moisturizer consistency but contains fine shimmer particles, this is great for dehydrated skin. The *Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in 01. Nude Radiance has more of a golden undertone to it but still keeping the face very natural looking. If you want more of a bam highlight you might want to try the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone, it’s my favorite out of the bunch and can act as both a base/highlight.
Minimal Makeup Look – The key to looking like a million bucks is to enhance your natural features using minimal amounts of makeup. You don’t have to cover up every blemish or freckle on your face, I think allowing some of your flaws to shine through shows a sense of vulnerability. I’d stick with a sheer foundation like the *Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, it’s very light but still gives a bit of coverage and evens the skin out. For the cheeks still keeping everything very dewy I will use the *Jouer Tint in Petal. This cream blush can double as a lip color as well but what I really like about the formula is the skin-like finish. Instead of heavy concealing try using a light reflective pen like the YSL Touché Eclat, it will help with dark circles and bring forward the areas you want highlighted. For the lips keeping them juicy and hydrated I always reach for the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors. They’re a cross between a balm and gloss while giving a healthy sheen of color to the lips. Last step would be giving your lashes a good curl and a light coat of mascara to finish off the look!
