Move over matte, glowing skin is in, and we are all coveting a dewy, flawless complexion. But before you dive into that pot of highlighter you’ve been waiting to try, read our top makeup hacks for glowing skin that will last all day!
Glowing Skin Starts From Your Base
Highlighters are a great last step for illuminating your complexion but if you prefer for your glow to come from within then taking a few extra minutes to really buff your products onto your skin will give your skin an extra boost.
Use your foundation brush to apply your moisturiser or primer in circular movements to increase circulation and blood flow for that added inner glow. A flat top Kabuki brush is the best tool to use here. The soft, dense bristles will evenly distribute product and leave your complexion even and glowy.
Buffing your foundation on using a brush not only gives a super natural look, even with heavier bases but helps polish the product onto the skin leaving your complexion looking flawless, the perfect canvas for your blush and highlighter.
Get a Blinding Highlight
Want your powder highlight to pack more of a punch? This hack has you covered! Simply set your makeup with your favourite setting spray, then apply your highlight whilst your face is still damp with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.
Want even more intensity? Spray the setting spray directly to your brush before sweeping in your highlighter, and apply to the strobing points of the face - your cheek bones, brow bones, the bridge of your nose and your cupid's bow - stunning!
Stay Flawless All Day Long
If your makeup has to take you from work to play then these quick updates can transform your skin in minutes. When your makeup has already survived a day's work and is in need of a refresh for post-office partying then take a medium sized brush such as Marble Luxe Complexion Brush F2 and buff and blend over the entire face, this will not only get rid of any product that has ended up in any fine lines but also re-awaken any shimmering particles within your makeup. Just spritz with a little setting spray to hydrate and freshen up and pop a little cream blush to the apple of the cheek and your skin will look instantly refreshed.
