All About That Glow!

I feel like we are at that point in the year when all everyone wants to do is glow, whether that is boldly or just something that enhances your natural glow. Whichever one you want to achieve, I have a product for it.

Looking Hydrated
If you have dehydrated skin like myself, you are probably in need of a foundation or concealer that will give you the coverage you want but it will also not cake up and enhance your dry patches. I am yet to find a foundation that does this but the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is beautiful on dry skin. It is a medium coverage but it is super light and does not dry out my skin. I find that this does not make my under eyes look cakey and once I have set it, it doesn't move. It does not give an overly glowy finish but it does glow just a little bit and very naturally.
Another face makeup products, perfect for making your makeup look like skin and super natural. The Freedom Pro Fixing Spray is great for absorbing the powder you may of may not have over applied, it gives back that look of skin which is what you want when you have dry skin. This might not be the product if you are oily just because it will not sit well on your skin and it will just help everything slide off. But if you are dry, it is good drugstore spray to give a go
Looking Highlighted
There is always that one person who just wants to pop out from all of the rest, this one is for you. I was going through all of my highlighters and this one was just calling "Me! Me! I am the best!" and how could I not mention it. It is obviously TheBalm Mary Loo Manizer, it is honestly the best highlighter I own and it is totally worth all of the hype it gets. What I love about it, is that it is buildable, you can go from something light and just enhanced to something popping and crazy reflective. I also think that the colour is super versatile and would work for very pale, to medium skin tones. If you have not tried this yet, you need to especially if you want to glow like no other this year.
Looking Radiant
A primer I love to give me an all over boost of radiance is the Collection Primed and Ready Primer in Warm Apricot. This goes not make your skin look hydrated and glowy, it is more like a liquid illuminator mixed with a normal primer. The illumination it gives though, just shins through your foundation. It does look very nice on the skin and it is definitely worth a try. I do apply this all over the face before foundation but you might even be able to use it as a cream highlighter, I might try it.
Setting powders are not really suppose to give you a radiant finish but I think it is hard to find a setting powder that does not make you look matte and flat. This powder from Anastasia Beverly Hills called Sand is great for not making you look flat. It has the slightest sheen to it which just makes your whole face look healthy and youthful but setting it at the same time. I feel like people would avoiding using this as a face powder because of the sheen it has but it does not transfer as super reflective it just makes you glow from within.

What is your favourite kind of highlighter?

  4. I love adding Soft and Gentle to the high points of my face to give me a highlighted look! Setting it in place with a dewy setting spray is also another way of making you look like you have glowy skin!
