Glowing Makeup

Wednesday, 22 July 2015

Today I decided to try creating a makeup look that's been very popular recently. It's a super glowing makeup look. I have never put on this much glow and highlighter on my face, ever! This is how it turns out...

I can see the appeal in this type of look because in indoor lighting, you look in the mirror and it gives you that "WOW, THAT'S BEAUTIFUL" effect, especially on camera your face catches the light so beautifully. But honestly I'm not really a fan of this for everyday basis, because if you have large pores like I do, this will accentuate them 100x, so you definitely need to really prime your face with something that smoothens your pores like Benefit Porefessional first. And if you are going to meet people face to face, it's just too over the top... I agree that it is so beautiful but my skin is just isn't perfect enough to pull this off :'( Maybe I can make this work but it will take effort, you know, so for me this is more of a special occasion thing.

I did a similar thing to a model with porcelain-like, poreless, flawless skin not too long ago, I used a cream blush, zero powder, and all that jazz for a full-on effect, and I almost squealed because of how perfect it looked on her, so this is definitely a makeup look that you need to customize to suit your needs.

I used a number of products to achieve this look. After moisturizing with my trustee Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre, I apply MAC Strobe Cream all over the face. After that I used a glow-boosting foundation which is Bourjois Healthy Mix in 52 Vanille. I concealed here and there and then set only my undereye with the Banana powder from Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit. I used the pinky highlight shade from the NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Adoration + MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle all over my eyelid and a matte mid tone brown on my crease. I curled my lashes and then apply my Helena Rubinstein mascara. I did a little bit of contour under my cheekbones and I highlighted using a lot of MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle everywhere, on my cheekbones, along the bridge of the nose concentrating on the tip, on my cupid's bow, on my forehed, just everywhere. I used Benefit Rockateur as a blush, it's a very pretty satin and it helps blur pores. To keep with the glowing thing I used Dior Lip Maximizer in 007 on my lips (bloody love that lip plumper!)

What do you think? Is this look for you?

Much love,
