Do you find it hard to achieve a dewy, glowing look due to acne, redness, etc?
I think the key is knowing that although you want to look dewy, achieving a dewy, glowing look is about placing and layering the right products in the right places.
You can’t just apply an illuminator and expect flawless looking skin.
I wanted to try a glowing look worthy of the red carpet!
As you can see, there are eight products!
Step one: I used the Josie maran illuminator as a base all over! (Bottom right)
Step two: the YSL concealer under eyes, center forehead and on blemishes!
Step three: small amounts of a light foundation blended around “problem areas”, mine are my chin and around my nose.
Step four: NARS concealer under eyes.
Step five: contour blush shade on cheek bone hollows, then opal from the Kat Von D Alchemist pallet on cheek bones!
Step six: powder under eyes, under hollows of cheeks, and sides of forehead or anywhere with a bit too much sheen.
Step seven: I place my brighter colored illuminators over my nose, cheekbones, forehead, Cupid’s bow, brow bones.
So as you can see, there’s A LOT put into getting that “just woke up this way” glow!
I also used Tarte, Stila, Smashbox, YSL, Anastasia, & Lancome to achieve the full look.
My new red Smashbox lipsheen smells amazing and is a gorgeous color with lots of dimension. Definitely high maintenance though!
In person there are so many glowing shades when the sun or light hits my face.
What do you think?
