Summer is here and gorgeous glowing skin is all the rage right now. Glowing skin is a sign of good health and youth and let’s face it we tend to feel better when our skin looks and feels good. Whether you want glowing skin everyday or for a special event, these tips for glowing skin will help you on your way to being a glowing god or goddess!
By exfoliating, you’re buffing away dead skin cells and dirt and revealing new and healthier skin. It is really important to make sure you have a fresh and smooth base before applying anything else to the skin.
After exfoliating it’s best to hydrate the new skin to ensure it stays soft and smooth. Hydrated skin tends to naturally look more glowy so make sure you’re staying hydrated by drinking lots of water as well as applying products to the skin.
Maybe the most important step! Applying a glowy highlight to the high points of your face (cheekbones, bridge of nose & brow bone) really makes the skin look more 3D and sun-kissed. As I have yellow undertones to my skin I tend to use gold toned highlights. You may find that a pink or silver toned highlight suit your skin tone more so you should experiment with different shades.
It might seem strange but if your face and body are glowing to the gods but your hair is looking dry and flat it can throw the entire look off! Make sure you’re taking care of your hair keeping it hydrated by using a moisturising hair mask. For extra shine use a finishing oil or shine spray to give hair that extra sleek look. My favourite products are the Superdrug Hydrate And Shine Coconut Water Masque and the L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil.
If You Still Need More Glow
Avoid matte lipstick and opt for a gloss instead.
Run a shimmery bronze eyeshadow across your eyelids and lower lash line to tie in with your highlight.
Use a shimmering body oil for a super intense look.
Swap your matte contour shade for a shimmery bronzer.
Set your makeup with an illuminating setting spray.
