Glass skin started out as a K-Beauty trend all about ultra-clear, luminous skin. But like many beauty trends that bend, morph and blur the lines between skin care and makeup, this popular look has made its way into the makeup world. Whether it’s by applying a glowy base, topping off your look with highlighter or opting for dewy blush, achieving glassy-looking skin can be done through more than cleansers and serums. Here, we’re sharing some of our favorite glassy blush looks and tips on how to create them to give you juicy-looking cheeks and gorgeous dewy skin all year.
Glassy cheeks and faux freckles are the ultimate summer cheek combination. This dewy blush resembles being sweaty and flushed on a warm summer day一in the best way一and faux freckles that add the perfect touch to summer skin. To create faux freckles, dot an eyebrow pencil like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil onto your cheeks and tap lightly with your fingertips to blend. Eyebrow pencils are great for creating faux freckles because they tend to be less pigmented than eyeliner and leave a natural appearance.
The sun hits the high points of your face, and your nose often gets the most color. To make your glassy blush look like a natural, sun-kissed glow, apply a bit of the color onto your nose as well as your cheeks. Give any blush a boost of glow by applying a bit of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer as a base and layering a bit of blush on top.
A great way to take a monochrome makeup look to the next level is by playing with different textures. Complement matte eyeshadow or winged liner by applying a blush in the same color palette but with a glassy finish. Using various textures in the same hue maintains the integrity of the monochrome look while adding a unique flair to it.
The draping technique is all about sculpting the face with blush. Typically, the blush is applied to the cheekbones and up onto the temples to give the face a more lifted appearance. Draping with a glassy-looking blush is perfect if you love a dramatic cheek. To make your look even more cohesive using this technique, swipe a bit of the blush shade into the creases of your eyes. Match the pink plush in this look and opt for the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Satin Blush With Camellia Oil in Rosewood.
Skinimalism and natural makeup looks are ultra-popular right now, and creating a glassy blush look while keeping the rest of your makeup minimal is a great way to get in on the trend. This makeup style lets your cheeks and skin remain the focal point which makes for a fresh, youthful look.
