A healthy, lit-from-within radiance is always on our #skingoals list, but sometimes the day-to-day grind gets in the way: pollution, lack of sleep, busy days and an evening cocktail (or three) can sap the glow right out of you. The antidote: Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup SPF 15, a lightweight foundation with light-reflecting pearls that instantly brighten your skin and blur imperfections (it’s like having your favourite Instagram filter inside your foundation). It also has vitamin C to actually brighten your skin in the long run, increasing those days when you don’t feel like you need to wear any foundation at all. Win, win. Pair it with a complexion-warming bronzer to create a super-quick healthy glow that’ll look good anytime, anywhere—read on to find out how.
Step 1: Get your glow on.
Start by prepping skin with the Clarifying Lotion fit for your skin type. This liquid exfoliator has salicylic acid and sodium hyaluronate to gently slough off radiance-dulling dead skin cells, making your foundation go on that much smoother. Next, dot a small amount of Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup onto your forehead, chin, cheeks and nose, then blend with fingertips. Apply a little more only where needed.
Step 2: Dial up the warmth.
The trick to nailing natural contour: use a shimmer-free, cream formula that’s easy to blend and build up coverage, like Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour. Placement is key too: Hold your index finger right under your cheekbone—this is exactly where you should swipe the bronzer, from your temple down toward the corner of your mouth. Tip: Ease up on the pressure as you draw the line so that the bronzer will be slightly darker near your ear and gradually lighter toward your mouth. Blend with your fingers.
Step 3: Give cheeks an energising flush.
Swirl a warm, peachy blush, like Cheek Pop in Peach Pop, along your cheekbones, just above the contour, blending the two together where they meet for a subtle ombré effect.
