Glowy skin has always been a huge favourite of mine. I’m sure many of you crave that healthy, hydrated and glowy makeup look that works so well in the summer. Let’s face it; it works all year round.
I am one of those people who really loves spending time on my makeup, blending, trying new colours and using different products. I’m always trying to experiment with products unfamiliar to me however, sometimes, I like a simplistic approach to my look. I wanted to experiment with a few looks that would take 10 minutes or less.
A look focused on the glowy skin is always a go-to when i’m short on time, or i’m just wanting an easy look. To accomplish this, hydration is key! Starting off with a rich moisturizer is going to prep your skin and create a hydrated and even surface to work with. Usually, I skip the foundation. Not using foundation, even the lightest of coverage, will allow your skin to really shine through. Of course in this case, concealer will be your best friend. Using concealer that matches your skin will give you natural-looking coverage in areas you need it, as opposed to all over. My favourite concealer of the moment for this look is the NARS Radient Creamy Concealer. It gives great coverage, it’s hydrating and blends out seamlessly using a finger or my preferred tool, a Beauty Blender.
Next comes the glow! The Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream has been a game changer in this department. All I use is a pea-size amount and apply to my skin like moisturizer. It gives a glow to the skin while evening out my skin. Also, since it contains pure 24 karat it gives an amazing glow to the skin…plus colloidal gold is known to help lift and firm the skin.
From there, finish off your makeup how you’d like. Set it all into place with a little setting spray and you’re out the door.
