A clear, glowing complexion exudes health and youthfulness, and that’s why we all want…luminous skin. Even when one too many late nights take a toll on your complexion, there are ways to at least appear radiant!
You first want to apply a foundation or tinted moisturizers with light-reflecting pigments, like Georgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation $58. These foundations have particles that scatter light, diffusing imperfections and mimicking the look of young, dewy skin. This definitely allows ‘for an instant glow". If more coverage is needed a highlighting concealer will work, and apply only where needed.
Next, applying a shimmering peachy pink on the apples of your cheek, like Dior Skin Shimmer Star in Rose Diamond $42. That will give you the natural luminous flush from within.Blend towards the temples, and apply bronzer along the cheekbones for more definition.
For eyes, creamy champagne and golden shadow like Nars Summer Time Duo Cream Eyeshadow $32.For a more brightening effect add a gold pencil or highlighting pencil, like Shiny Mama’s "Gleam All" Eye Pencil in Gold Sunray $25, in the corners of the eyes and lid.
To top off your look apply a rose, pink or light pink gloss or satin lipstick for shine, like Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Gloss in Nude Rose $18.
