Glowing Skin Tips

When I first started wearing make-up, around junior year in high school, my main goal was to have clear, even skin. I was adamant about eliminating shine and kept small, oil-blotting sheets in my bag at all times. It's funny how things have changed, since I now think matte skin looks flat and without vibrancy. My favorite look lately is a slightly bronzed, dewy face and a golden eye. Here are my steps for how I do it: 


All-Over Coverage  After liberally applying face oil to my face and neck (serious hydration is key for making your skin look well moisturized), I mix an illuminating cream with my foundation. This not only lets me use less foundation for a more natural look, but it also gives my entire face a nice, subtle glow.


Bronzer I apply a cream-based bronzer to the hollowed parts of my cheeks, starting at the outer edges of my mouth and extending it up towards the top of my ears. Then I blend it really well.


Blush Starting at the top of my cheekbones, I add a coral-colored cheek stain and blend upwards. Then, using a make-up sponge, I rub the bronzer and blush together so that they look natural.


Eyes For a sultry eye that's still subtle, I use Key Largo - a pale peach base with a shimmery bronze shadow and blend well with my eyeshadow brush. Then, on the inside corners of my eyes, I add a touch of an iridescent white pencil, to make my eyes pop.


Lips I apply a light pink lipstick with a touch of shimmer and then add a dab of clear gloss, in the center of my bottom lip, to make them look fuller.


Finishing touches Lastly, to make sure I have a good amount of dewiness on the rest of my skin, I use an illuminating balm (it lets me control where the shine goes) to my brow, cheek, collar bone, bridge of my nose and my cupid's bow.
