Glowing skin

Whichever the season, or time of year, healthy and glowing skin is always in style. While Cinderella had her fairy godmother, you have your makeup bag to help you pull off that radiant glow no matter what the occasion. This look can be achieved by simply switching around some of your mattifying beauty collection for something with a bit of sparkle. Here are five must-have makeup products you need in your bag to be graced with the glow.  


A lightweight creamy gel primer comes in the form of the Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer. The pearl tint of this primer creates a soft focus effect to help minimise the look of imperfections with a radiant finish. Just simply massage this primer over the skin’s surface before applying your tinted moisturiser or foundation. This can be applied over moisturised or clean skin and will help leave your makeup looking fresh.

Makeup brand BECCA Cosmetics teamed up with popular YouTube Beauty Vlogger Jaclyn Hill to create a highlight shade that sold a record-breaking 25,000 compacts within the first twenty minutes of release, on the online retailer sephora.com. The BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop has a peach hue that compliments any skin tone. BECCA makeup artist Kerry Cole said, “When you look at the colour peach, it's a mix of pink and yellow. And when those two colours are blended together, you get a shade that neutralizes your skin's own undertones, which are usually some combination of yellow and pink, and warms up your complexion. It acts like a chameleon in the sense that the peach tone adapts to your skin tone."
