We’re willing to bet that you’ve heard about the glass skin trend—it took the skin care world by storm years ago and it’s maintained its popularity. What started as a K Beauty trend transformed into a skin care goal that many of us share—to have skin that is so radiant, luminous and clear, that it looks like it could be molded from glass. When it comes to achieving this look, there are products that you can add to both your skin care routine and your makeup routine to give you an extra boost of glow. Check out our favorite glow-boosting products and a simple glowing skin routine below to help you get the look of glass skin.  


There is nothing more important than having smooth, exfoliated skin when it comes to achieving the glass skin effect. Now, this doesn’t mean your skin needs to be perfect or blemish free to attain the look—but it’s important to remove dead skin cells and dry patches in order to start with properly prepped skin. We recommend using a retinol serum in your skin care routine to resurface your skin as well as reduce wrinkles and help with brightening. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Night Serum, 0.3% Pure Retinol is a great option because it contains hydrating ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid which help to prevent dryness that can sometimes occur when using retinol. 


Since this trend is all about making the skin appear as juicy and plump as possible, hydration is a major key. Starting by using a hyaluronic acid serum like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Hyaluronic acid is an incredible ingredient which helps the skin attract moisture from the atmosphere. It’s also great for plumping and reducing wrinkles—yes, it’s basically a dream ingredient. We recommend applying this serum to slightly damp skin for maximum hydration retention. 

After applying a hyaluronic acid serum, make sure to apply a moisturizer on top to lock in as much hydration as possible. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Day Lotion SPF 30 is our pick because it’s not only soft and hydrating, but it also protects against sun damage, so it’s win-win. 


After your skin is exfoliated and hydrated it should be left feeling velvety smooth. Now, it’s time to apply tinted moisturizer. When going for the glassy skin look, we recommend using tinted moisturizer over foundation because it tends to create a more natural, naked skin appearance which the glassy skin trend is all about. The L’Oréal Paris Skin Paradise Water Infused Tinted Moisturizer is our new go-to because it provides light to medium buildable coverage while maintaining a skin-like appearance. It’s ultra hydrating and has a dewy finish, perfect for the radiant skin you’re after.


The last step to creating glassy skin is finishing off with a highlighter. The L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette is amazing if you want to customize your glow. You can mix and match these powder highlight shades to perfectly complement your skin tone and the look you’re going for. If you prefer a liquid option that can be applied over or underneath your tinted moisturizer for a subtle glow, the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer is a great option. Simply apply the highlighter of your choice on the high points of your face like your cheekbones and bridge of your nose for the final touch of your glassy skin look. 

Editor’s Tip: When it comes to highlighting for a glass skin effect, it’s best to use a natural looking highlighter rather than one that’s extremely pigmented or metallic. This is because the more natural the highlight, the more likely it is to look like the glow is coming from your skin and not just your makeup. You can always pat over an intense highlighter with the sponge you used for your foundation to tone it down a bit and make it melt into the skin.
