Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I occasionally document the things I put on my face & the various brunch foods I eat. Enjoy!

The Glow Job

The Glow Job

You know when you just want that fresh, youthful glow but end up looking like a sad disco ball? Those days are now behind you. Achieving a subtle highlight may sound easy, but in reality it can all go downhill very quickly. No matter your skin type, I promise you there is a way to look perfectly dewy, even if we have to spend a little money to get here. 

If you're on the oilier side, I recommend you pass on any illuminating primers on an everyday basis. Your skin is already producing enough all-over oil that any more would leave you looking like a slab of grease (sexy, I know). Instead, opt for a highlighting powder such as the Hourglass Ambient Lighting PaletteIt will set your makeup in place and make your skin ready for that candlelit Tinder date you have later on. 

Normal to dry faces have a little more wiggle room with their product choice. Liquid, balm or powder highlights will all give a similar finish. The key is to apply with a light hand. It's only when you go a overboard that people start mistaking you for an actual planet in the solar system. Charlotte Tilbury's Wonderglow and PürMinerals Illuminate & Glow both do a fabulous job at giving you a lit-from-within look. Plus it's an easy way to give your makeup a little pick me up halfway through the day.  What are your hot tips and tricks for achieving the perfect glow job?
