How to Fake a Facial with Makeup How to Fake a Facial with Makeup How to Fake a Facial with Makeup

While we all like to pamper ourselves now and then, most of us don’t have the funds or time to book a facial at the spa with any regularity. Of course, we would all like to have glowing skin that looks more youthful. But after a long day at work, your motivation to recreate a Hollywood facial at home may be low. Luckily it’s easy to use a no makeup, makeup look to give yourself the appearance of having just been to the spa. Here are a few steps you can take to create a makeup look that will help you fake a facial.

FAKE FACIAL STEP #1: BUILD YOUR GLOW

One of the most noticeable things after getting a facial is the radiant glow of your skin. This glow allows your skin to appear more youthful and overall flawless. To achieve this look with makeup, you’ll want to invest in a face highlighting lotion. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enchancer is a glow lotion that will give you the effortless illumination and natural overall glow you would get with a facial. Apply this lotion all over your face to create a glowing base for your foundation.

FAKE FACIAL STEP #2: CREATE FLAWLESS SKIN

After applying your highlighter lotion, it’s time to hide any imperfections on your skin without having it look like you have foundation on. The L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation will instantly erase any lines, wrinkles and uneven textures leaving you with skin that appears fresh, smooth and youthful. Apply this foundation using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender so you can effortlessly blend it into your skin for professional makeup results.

FAKE FACIAL STEP #3: ADD SOME COLOR

To continue this no makeup, makeup look, you’ll have to give yourself some natural-looking color. Make your skin appear slightly more tan and chiseled by contouring your cheeks, forehead, and nose. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Bronze It Bronzer will give you a radiant, sun-kissed glow. To take your bronze even further, use this bronzer on your body too.

FAKE FACIAL STEP #4: GIVE YOURSELF A FLUSH

Next, you’ll want to create a natural flush. Instead of applying a more noticeable blush color as you normally would, go for a subtle color. The L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Bashful will give you the pop of color you need when applied to the apples of your cheeks.

FAKE FACIAL STEP #5: BOOST YOUR GLOW, GIRL

After you have a solid base, you want to finish off your face makeup by ending with some extra glow to make it appear as though you’ve just come back from an expensive appointment. Use a loose highlighting powder, such as the L’Oréal Paris Translucide Naturally Luminous Loose Powder, to give your skin a radiant finish by lighting dusting it all over your face. Just like with the bronzer, for an extra touch, this highlighting powder can be used on your collarbone and shoulders to extend your glow.

To complete the dewy, post-facial look, you’ll want to highlight a few specific features to create more youthful looking skin. Using the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops, add a drop of glow to your cheekbones, tip of your nose and Cupid’s bow.

FAKE FACIAL STEP #6: MAKE YOUR POUT POP

The final step to complete your makeup facial is to add some moisture and natural color to your lips. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Balm in Nourishing Nude will give you subtle color and long-lasting hydration.
