There is something about luminous skin that is perfect for summer. It has an easy appearance that makes you look naturally radiant. I think this finish of makeup looks so romantic, and gives your skin a healthy-looking glow.
I have been using these five products to obtain a glowing complexion. Rather than applying foundation and contour, I have been focusing on trying to make my skin look nourished and radiant. In addition to these products, I also apply concealer and blush. I love to do a metallic eye and glossy lips with this look when I go out at night.
Glossier Priming Moisturizer ($27)
Glossier has undeniably made its mark in the beauty community as the ultimate dewy-skin brand. The priming moisturizer can be used either as a part of your skincare routine, or as a super-hydrating primer that makes your skin glow. I love this product because it is really lightweight, yet is so hydrating.
Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid ($12)
This illuminating highlighter looks like liquid metal when you apply it to your skin. I personally find that this layers best under makeup, or worn with no foundation because it has the tendency to separate when applied on top. I blend this in with my fingers all over my cheeks (not just the top of the cheek bone), and down the bridge of my nose.
Glossier Haloscope ($27)
This is my absolute favourite product right now. It makes your skin look dewy but doesn’t contain any sparkles, so it gives you wet-looking skin. I go over the tops of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupid’s bow,right above my eyebrows on my forehead, the inner corners of my eyes, and a tiny bit on the center of my chin. I put it everywhere.
The Balm Overshadow ($22)
Overshadow is a loose, mineral powder that is intended to be used on your eyes, but it also makes for a ridiculously intense highlight. It is very finely-milled, so it glides over the skin to create a reflective sheen. Use this sparingly on the highest points of your cheekbones. This product is incredible if you will be having your photo taken because it really reflects light off the area and makes your skin looking blinding. Less is certainly more with this product.
NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray ($10)
Lock everything in place with this Dewy Finish Setting Spray by NYX. This spray is amazing for people with oily or combination skin because it gives you a glow, but also helps to keep you from getting shiny throughout the day. Does this make any sense? Basically…it keeps your makeup looking flawless and radiant, but prevents your skin from getting oily.
