FOTD: Let It Glow

Another Frozen reference, I know. Sorry for not being sorry; it just fit so well. For someone who was always scared she looked really shiny and believed a face full of powder was the best way to hide everything and keep things hidden all day, over the last year I've defintiely gravitated toward a glowly look.

To get the base off to the right start I began with the Bourjois Happy Light primer to get my skin all ready for my base which here is the Bourjois CC Cream as I wanted to give it a test, but to be honest, though it's more expensive I much prefer the Dior BB Cream, it lasts better throughout the day and adds an extra glow.

Before powdering with my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, which is the peferfect powder to set make-up but leave you with a glow, I worked in my Jemma Kid Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Cream which is sadly discountined but I say pick up Topshops Glow Cream Highlighter for the same effect. Once that is worked in with the base I like to apply my cream blush, which just so happened to be my Nars Multiple in Portofino.

Eyes and lips I kept quite simple. Eyes was a MAC staple Naked Lunch which deposits a slight colour with a nice shimmer to boot and lips was a your lips but nicer/better colour from No7 BB Lips in Coral Rush.

What are your glowy skin staples?

  1. You definitely look glowing dear! I personally get glowy with things like a cheek highlight, under brow highlight and lots of shimmer shadows! I don't really fancy glowy finishes on my face!

  2. Love it!
    And I really like your Necklace :D

  3. Loving the Frozen references haha! I used to be a really full coverage girl but recently I've been loving the fresh faced look & I've been meaning to try some BB & CC creams, your skin really does look gorgeous & glowy! Desperate for a Topshop glow highlighter but every time I'm in store EVERY single pot has been opened & swatched by people who aren't content with just using the tester so I may just need to order one online.
