what can I say? despite being hugely inspired by all the Instagram and youtube makeup trends and all the colours and very heavy looks, I just prefer it a tad lighter but very glowy. maybe its because I’m very happy with my skin as it is and usually don’t feel there’s a need for a heavy duty foundation especially if I’m just at work. Since my skin can be very dehydrated and also pretty fair, I prefer it to be very dewy too. Recently, I have found a fair amount of products which give me just that: an easy day to day makeup which is light and glowy and I don’t have to touch it up throughout the day so this is for all you ladies out there who want that too.
my perfect light and easy makeup start out with the perfect base. there’s one very luxe product I have been loving and using non-stop. Maybe its because I wanted to look as flawless as Lydia Elise Millen but it just is an amazing product. its the by terry cellular rose cc serum. Its basically skincare containing rose stem cells to brighten and illuminate the skin. It can be worn on its own but also under makeup. it gives the most perfect glow and every product used over it looks so much more radiant. it’s absolutely brilliant. I have been really loving cc and bb creams lately and use a lighter form of foundation on a daily. the bali body bb cream* has been my absolute favourite lately. It is a very light but very dewy finish which means I can still see my freckles which I love but my redness and uneven skin tone have vanished. it also has SPF 15 and also provides intense hydration due to having hyaluronic acid and marine collagen as ingredients. it’s super easy to work into the skin and I’m sure I’ll wear it all through summer. when it comes to powder I either don’t use it at all or I use a radiance booting one and hourglass does that like no other. I use a mix of both powders from the ambient lighting edit palette which came out last Christmas. To finish off my base I always use some sort of highlighter. Lately, I have been obsessed with the too faced love light highlighter in blinded by the light. its perfect champagne shade adds even more glow and its not glittery at all but not too natural. the packaging just is adorable too like every too faced product.
well, hourglass just is the brand for me when it comes to a light and glowy makeup. I am in love with their scattered light glitter eyeshadow pots. Foil is such a perfect copper shade and it goes on so opaque and almost wet looking but can be blended so easily and despite being so glittery and beautiful, it still feels light and easy on my eyes. I really want to get all the shades they do because they are just incredible. No makeup is ever complete for me without lipstick. My perfect lipstick and the one I use almost on a daily is the Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lipstick in Pillow Talk. It was a limited edition during Christmas and they should bring it back because it’s absolutely beautiful and because it has more of a balmy texture and is also more on the glossy side it’s so easy to wear during the day.
what about you? do you have favourites for a light and glowy finish? please let me know.
