Get The Glow – Part I – Pull Off a Gorgeous Youthful Glow All Year Long with the Right Beauty Tools

The trick to glowing summer skin – to recreate those moments when sunlight bounces off your cheekbones just right and creates a magical shimmer. With the right beauty tools, you’ll be pulling off the dewy/off-the-runway look in no time.

It all starts with a good foundation, of course. If you’re currently using a powder or pressed powder foundation – good. But have you considered trying out a liquid formula, at least for the summertime? I save my pressed powder bases for the cooler seasons and I find myself reaching over more often to use a liquid formula in the summer to recreate the oh-so-natural appearance of bare skin. A light layer of liquid foundation goes a long way to balance out redness and uneven skin tone, and provide a clean canvas for the rest of your makeup while still showing your unique features like freckles and beauty marks to give your face the no-makeup makeup look.

Next, let’s talk about highlighters – not the matte contouring highlighters in this instance - but the ones with a slight shimmer and satiny finish. Highlighting strategically will make your most beautiful features pop, create definition in your face, and give you an angelic glow. 

Apply the highlighter on top of the cheekbones, on the Cupid’s bow, the tip of your nose, inner corners of your eyes and your collarbone. Take it to the next level by highlighting underneath the eyebrow bone, down the bridge of your nose, center of your chin and even on the center of your lower lip for a fuller effect. Here's my all-time favorite natural & organic highlighter!
