Getting That Glow

getting that glow

Boy oh boy do I love glowing skin! A complete contrast to my teenage years where I would gravitate towards all things matte, eternally on a mission to ensure not a single spot of shine got a chance to break through. Luckily alongside my skin evolving, so has my taste and now I’m 100% on the glow/dewy bandwagon. Even though I still like to be in control of the levels of shine throughout the day, my new drier skin type gives me a chance to grab those glow getting products to ensure my complexion looks youthful and radiant with just that right hint of dew.

To get that luminosity shining through I start with skincare, specifically two masks that bring those glow levels: the REN Wake Wonderful Night Time Facial and the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask. For a boost of glow throughout the week or when those Wednesday blues just become too strong I go in with this overnight REN mask knowing that come morning, my skin will be glowing and ready for the day ahead. Looking for something a tad more intense? The Tata Harper mask is that instant solution for dull or sallow skin. Packed full of vitamins and nutrients this knocks skin into glow overdrive.

Once you’ve catered for your skin, it’s vital your base of choice doesn’t undo all your hard work. To capture that light and radiance it’s got to be the Burberry Skin Fresh Glow BB Cream in Fair 01. Recreating a fresh, youthful complexion you’ve got light diffusing properties that keeps your skin looking bright from noon to night. I also find adding an illuminating blush to the apples of my cheeks opens up the complexion. Not only that, it’s also a good excuse to use one of my much loved Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush from their own Blush Palette ;) This pearlescent finish  lifts those cheekbones and captures the light. Who said a blush/highlighter hybrid was ever a bad thing!?
