A Glowy & Glossy Makeup Routine
Everyday beauty made easy, glowy, bronzed and balmy.
The base, the most important step towards healthy, glowing skin. Tinted Moisturisers, BB or CC creams have always been my first choice when it comes to base products. I'm anti heavy foundations or anything with matte on the tube and instead, I pic up everything that uses the words radiance, glow, dewy or illuminating. The Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser is always my first TM choice, it's hydrating, super light in coverage (adds a touch of colour to even the skin tone), includes SPF20 to protect, Shea Butter to hydrate and pearls to give skin that really ethereal, lit from within, 'this is my skin' glow. Keeping your skin bronzed and dewy is key to fresh faced beauty and cream products will take it that extra step. I draw my NARS South Beach Multiple straight onto my cheeks and temples and blend in with a flat top brush or damp makeup sponge to warm things up, add a touch of definition and keep things looking sun-kissed. For non-greasy cream blush, I opt for a liquid and BECCA Watermelon Beach Tint is the perfect, barely there peachy/pink blush shade that adds a very natural looking stain to the skin that is wearable and long lasting.
To make things look even more glowy, I've been using the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in JEAN, a long lasting cream eyeshadow formula that adds a very natural wash of colour that helps to brighten the eyes and make everything look more together. I'm still on the balmy, nude lip trend and have two favourites that pull this very simple makeup look together and are comfortable to wear everyday. Firstly, I'm back using the Kat Burki Glossy Lip Treatment which is a lip product with multiple benefits of hydrating, plumping and soothing due to it's Vitamin E and Coconut Oil base. I've then been using the cult classic By Terry Baume De Rose lip balm but in the shade Cherry Bomb, to add a very slight tint of colour that still provides and maintains hydration.
I always finish a makeup look with a refreshing, hydrating, glow boosting face mist and my all time favourite is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir - enriched in Grape, Rose and Rosemary, it boosts moisture and radiance, tones and energises.
