Tips to Achieving the Perfect Glow

Tips to Achieving the Perfect Glow

We all dream about having that perfect glow, but we don't want to look like we were on the wrong side of a glitter cannon! Our sparkle should look effortless, ethereal and natural, and to achieve radiance for Spring, follow these tips for the perfect glow.

Tip One: Glowing Skin Is Healthy Skin

We hate to break it to you, but no highlighter or strobing cream can truly mimic the effect of beautiful, dewy skin. The best way to get glowing is with healthy skin, which starts with great skin care. We're obsessed with sloughing away dead skin with a fine exfoliating scrub to reveal our healthy skin underneath. In addition to regularly using a good moisturizer morning and night, we also love using Evian water facial spray before we apply primer and foundation.

Tip Two: Choose Your Base Wisely

All great makeup starts with a good base. If your foundation is too dry, cake-y or patchy, it's hard to look like you are glowing. Use a lightweight, medium to full coverage that hides your flaws, but without creating an undesirable mannequin look.

Tip Three: Crank Up The Highlight

2017 is truly proving to be the year of the highlighter. While we know that everyone has their own "ride-or-die" highlighter, we swear by the Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm. It's natural, yet striking iridescence has the perfect champagne shimmer to complement everyone's skin tone.

Tip Four: Don't Ruin It With Powder

There's no point in giving yourself a glow if you're going to ruin it all with powder. Yes, we get it, you don't want your makeup to slide around after you've so meticulously applied it. But there are other ways of locking everything in besides shellacking yourself with powder. Try a super light dusting of a finely milled translucent powder, such as the RCMA No Color Powder. If you want to really keep your makeup in place without dulling your shine, use a finishing spray. It will keep everything in place without turning your makeup matte. 

If you follow these tips, you can hop aboard Spring's trend of glowing, gorgeous and luminous skin.
