Having plump and radiant skin has been a top priority for those who care about looking fresh and glowy- a trend that has been extremely consistent over the past couple of years.
Many embark on the glow journey hoping to find makeup products that will make them look fresh-faced, only to be met with textural issues, ‘too much’ shine, or things just not looking quite right.
So, if this is you, this piece is going to offer some makeup tips so you can master enhancing your natural glow.
Let’s get into it!
Start with a Hydrating Primer
When it comes to plump, glowing skin, hydration is key. Starting your makeup routine with a hydrating primer can help keep your skin looking dewy and fresh all day long and provide a solid base for the rest of your makeup. Look for primers that contain hyaluronic acid or glycerin, as these ingredients help to lock in moisture – just make sure your foundation works well with it, or you might find it won’t sit nicely.
Use The Right Type of Foundation
When it comes to foundation, it’s important to choose something lightweight if you need a small amount of coverage. A tinted moisturizer or BB cream is a great option for glowing skin, as they provide coverage while also containing hydrating ingredients for your skin.
If you need something a little more full coverage, then choose foundations that provide a glow or satin finish. You want to stay away from matt foundations, as they won’t reflect light and give you that natural look you are hoping for.
Use Cream Blush
Cream blush is perfect for a plump and glowy makeup look, as it provides a natural-looking ‘flush’ that should melt into the skin. Power blushes can look a little more harsh and cakey, and of course, take away that light shine that your look focuses on. Apply cream blush to the apples of your cheeks using your fingers or a damp beauty blender, and blend outwards for a natural, seamless finish.
Top Tip: If you don’t have a cream blush, you can always use lipstick!
Highlighter is your best friend when it comes to enhancing your natural glow, especially cream products that can blend seamlessly into the skin. Apply highlighter to the high points of your face, such as your cheekbones, brow bone, and the tip of your nose, for a radiant, glowing complexion.
If you have mature skin, you might find this technique a little more challenging to make look natural if the volume has started to go from your face. There are always options such as filler to fill out those high points again – just find a Henderson Juvederm provider for more information.
Invest in a Setting Spray
To lock in your makeup and keep your skin looking fresh all day, invest in a good setting spray. Look for a spray that contains hydrating ingredients, such as glycerin or rose water, to keep your skin looking plump and hydrated until the end of the day!
