I have recently been obsessed with achieving healthy, glowing skin! Today I am going to share with you some of my favorite products I use to make my skin beautiful and bright. The most important step to achieving this look is focusing on a good skin care routine. Remember to always moisture day and night, while using a good cleanser and exfoliater. After your skin is looking on point, you can move onto makeup. I have never been a fan of full-faced makeup, but instead like accenting my favorite features for a more subtle look. Therefore, the key to a dewy complexion is letting your natural skin shine through. One of my favorite tips is using a cream highlighter on the high points of your face and then setting it with a powder highlight & finishing spray. Overall, focus on what you love about your skin and enhance it, instead of hiding what you dislike. Here are my favorite products to achieve glowing skin:
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate:
This product is best used in the shower once or twice a week and is perfect for all skin types. Apply a thin layer to your face and massage it in with circular motions. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rise! It will leave your skin feeling smooth and brighten your complexion. I sometimes forget to exfoliate, but it makes a huge difference when it comes time to apply your makeup. It evens everything out and gives you flawless skin.
Origins Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb:
This product works wonders!! I am in love with the formula and how smoothly this glides on my face. It smells amazing and gives a cooling sensation when applied. Just use your fingertips to place it on your face and spread it evenly. It is a mousse with a tint of color that minimizes your pores and primes your skin at the same time. What more could you ask for? I have noticed that it evens out my skin tone and allows my makeup to stay and look fresh all day long.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer- Illuminating:
I try to avoid using full coverage foundation and instead opt for a tinted moisturizer, especially when trying to achieve glowing skin. This product is perfect for brightening your complexion and illuminating your face. It is almost like a highlighter and moisturizer in one! I love how it looks like my natural skin, but better. It is not overpowering and it stays put all day long when combined with a primer. I normally apply this with a Beauty Blender or just my fingers and it looks perfect. It also has SPF 20 in it, which is very important to have during the summertime.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume II Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette:
After applying my tinted moisturizer, I like to place highlight along the high points of my face including: my cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow, above my eyebrows, and under my brows at the arch. This makeup palette is really eye-catching on the skin, especially when in the sunlight. It glimmers and gives your face a healthy glow. I normally apply this with my fingers because I think it looks the most natural, but a fan brush is also good for application. The formula of this palette is smooth and it glides on perfectly.
IT Cosmetics Universal Brow Powder:
To finish off all my makeup, I fill in my brows! I have been using this product for over a year now and it has always been my go to brow pencil. It is very simple to use and gives your brows a natural look. It comes in one universal shade, which transforms into your brow color depending on how much pressure you apply with each stroke. The softer the strokes, the lighter the color and the harder the strokes, the darker the color. It also comes with a spooley to brush any stray hairs into place.
I hope you found the tips and tricks I mentioned useful and are interested in using some of the products I recommended to achieve a bright and beautiful makeup look.
