Dewy Skin – Even in the Winter

I absolutely love dewy skin. No matter what season it is I want that natural glow. I love my skin to be youthful and have a bounce that only comes with healthy skin. Below I am going to outline my favorite products that always give me a beautiful glow, even in the winter. 

 

Before I get into the details I will tell you a bit about my skin. I would say that my skin is fairly normal, although I do experience dehydration all year around. When choosing masks I usually opt for the most hydrating or calming. In the winter I do experience more dryness than usual, which can sometimes make it more difficult to achieve the glow. Stay tuned for another post about some of my skin concerns that include irritation and break outs.

Let’s get glowing!

1. Prep – I always use my be all end all the Josie Maran Argan Oil (are you sick of hearing about this oil yet??) and I follow it up with Amore Pacific Future Response Age Defense Cream. It is very hydrating and smooths out my face making for a great canvas.

2. Foundation – I love Becca Aqua Luminous foundation mixed with Becca Opal Liquid Highlighter. By adding a drop or two of the liquid highlighter I can achieve an all over glow.

3. Set – I set only in the areas that are needed (mostly my under eye) with the Laura Mercier Universal Setting Powder. This goes on smooth and never leaves flash back in my photos.

4. Bronze & Highlight – I love, love, love the Profusion Bronzer from Makeup Forever. It is just the right color for all year-round bronze. It gives just the right amount of “sun kissed” to my skin. I am a huge fan of all things Anastasia Beverly Hills including her highlighter in So Hollywood. She has multiple highlighters, but this one gives me a Bronzy glow, so I tip off my bronzer with this.

 

This is really my everyday routine. To finish off my look, and take it up a notch, I use Sephora Collection Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, the Guerlain La Petite Noire mascara, and my current obsession from Buxom the Power Plump Lip Balm – The Big O. Last, but certainly not least, the Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist to finish the look.

These are just a few of my all time favorite products! What are some of your favorite dewy skin and glowing makeup products? Some of my favorite products have been from recommendations and I need to keep this glow glowing!

 

FENTY BEAUTY

Let’s talk FENTY!

I have now tried three products from the line and plan on trying them ALL. I’ve seen a lot of reviews about the products and some are utterly obsessed while others criticize the brand. I absolutely LOVE the products I’ve used so far. The foundation is brilliant, comes in 40 shades for any and every skin tone. It’s full coverage and semi matte. Can add as little as you want to achieve sheer-medium coverage. I use less than a pump on my entire face and love the results. A lot of people say that the foundation oxidizes…. well it doesn’t. When color swatching, leave the foundation on for 1 minute before committing to the color. It typically takes 1 minute to see the true tone . It lasts all day and the color does not change. 

Now on to the killawatt higlighters…. if you don’t have one already, go and get one asap. They are magical and don’t add texture to the skin. Below are photos wearing the products. Check out my IG for more upcoming photos, in the meantime, go ahead and check out the line and let me know what you think. xo

No-makeup makeup

Want to achieve that no makeup, makeup look? Check out the following photo and product breakdown to achieve the look.

Prep your skin with your daily skin routine and make sure you have beautiful hydrated skin. Use a Beauty oil of your liking and apply a few drops to the palm of your hands and press it in to the skin until it is fully absorbed. Use the Anastasia cream stick foundation and apply three swatches over your face– both checks and your forehead. Take your favourite blending brush and blend until you have a beautiful sheer coverage. Once complete, use a powder puff or a dry beauty blender and pat it on the skin. This gets rid of excess oil and foundation. Apply a bit of highlighter and bronzer if you would like. I just applied the Aurora Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Use the same bronzer and highlight over your eye lids for a harmonious look. Lips and brows are up to you– you can pick a bold lip and brow or go natural like I have above.  💋
