Most of us need a little help when it comes to achieving the appearance of glowing skin. While there are skin care products you can add to your skin care routine, such as face moisturizer formulated with glycolic acid and a charcoal mask, to help brighten the look of your skin, you can also use makeup to add a touch of radiance to your complexion. Not sure how, exactly? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading for our best makeup tips (and product recommendations) to help create the appearance of glowing skin.
One of the easiest ways to create the appearance of glowing skin? Reach for a lotion that illuminates, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer, which is available in four shades (fair, light, medium, and deep). This lotion instantly hydrates and luminizes for an all-over fresh glow. Apply it alone or under makeup. Use one of the lighter shades to highlight, and use a darker shade for an allover bronze or to contour. (Speaking of contouring, here’s Your Step-by-Step Contour Tutorial.)
Getting your glow on is more attainable than you might think. Enter our glow-boosting drops, the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops, available in two universal shades (Golden Hour for a warm, sun-kissed glow and Daybreak for a cool glow). Shake well, then apply alone or mix a drop or two into your foundation or face moisturizer for an all-over glow.
If you’re wondering what could be even better than one highlighter, the answer is multiple highlighters. There’s no reason why you have to stick to using a single highlighter on your face per makeup look. Try applying different highlighters on different spots on your face or mixing a few together for a glow that’s all its own. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette comes in two different color schemes, one with warm-toned highlighters (Sunkissed) and one with cool-toned highlighters (Moonkissed). Each palette features four blendable shades to help highlight every part of your face. Using a fan brush, sweep your favorite shade(s) onto the high points of your face, including your cheekbones, brow bones, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow, and the inner corners of your eyes. (For more tips on using highlighter, read How to Strobe for Every Skin Tone.)
We understand, sometimes you really want to take your radiant makeup look to the next level. When even the glitziest makeup isn’t cutting it, all you’ll need to satisfy your shimmer needs is a bit of water. Spritz the makeup brush you use to highlight with water, until it’s damp but not dripping, before dipping it into a powder highlighter. This can help make your highlighter look like a more dramatic, chrome-like version of itself. Apply, then glow to your heart’s content.
Your face isn’t the only place that deserves some shine and shimmer. We have a hunch that your body also wants to glow. Dip a fluffy makeup brush into a loose highlighting powder—the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder is perfect for this—and lightly brush it onto your neck and collarbones. Pair with a scoop neck top and you’ll have a look that’s bound to stand out. (Here’s Why You Should Pay Attention to Your Neck when going through your skin care routine.)
Makeup may be one of the best ways to fake a glowing complexion, but it isn’t your only option. Self-tanner is a must if you’re interested in that sun-kissed look—which, who isn’t? To learn all about another way to glow, head on over to our article, How to Get Glowing Skin with Self-Tanner.
