That Glow

Saturday, 10 August 2019

The heat wave that hit the UK has definitely got me trying to create a make up look that's more on the glowy side, in the hope to hide how hot and sweaty I truly am haha. Nothing beats a fresh, natural glowy look. In my opinion, it looks effortless, without saying I have actually spent a little while blending it all in properly. Here is one of my go to looks at the moment, or one where I want to be so bright, you could see me from space.

Firstly, I started with blending some Mac Strobe Cream into my skin, before heading on to apply foundation. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know my fav is the Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation. It has full coverage, without looking too thick. I have only been using half a pump recently - it still gives the coverage I desire, but doesn't feel too heavy, and makes any look feel a bit more natural. Following with the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, and setting in place with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - a dream combo.

A shimmery bronzer, or one that gives the skin a glow, is great for achieving a dewy look. The one I have been loving at the moment is the Becca Mineral Bronzing Highlighter Duo in the shade Serrana, or the Mac Bronze bronzer. Dusting this over the cheeks with a bit of Nars Orgasm looks amazing.

Eyes I have been keeping super neutral. Simply brushing some bronzer into the crease and applying the most gorgeous pink, metallic gold shade from the Huda Desert Dusk palette all over the lid. I also dot this shade on my lips, over the top of the Nars lip Orgasm Lip Balm or simply, some Vaseline. For highlighting, I've been loving mixing a few! Laura Mercier Indiscretion, Mac Soft and Gentle or Becca Champagne Pop. All of the shades compliment each other so nicely. Set it in place with some setting spray, and that's me done!
