How To Fake A Healthy Glow – Yep, it’s here! This is a post that a lot of you have been asking me about, it’s how to fake a healthy glow.
With summer on the way, I’ve selected a variety of products that are lightweight, natural and give your skin a beautiful, healthy – natural look.
How To Fake A Healthy Glow – Before Makeup
OK, so after cleansing your skin and before applying any makeup, I’d recommend using a lightweight facial oil like The Body Shop Vitamin E Oil.
I know it’s more of a night-time/before-bed product BUT this is great to use as a base – it’ll nourish your skin during the day (as you wear it) and due to the formula your skin will instantly have look healthier.
How To Fake A Healthy Glow – Makeup
I’ve picked a few products ranging from affordable to high-end as I feel these work best for me personally when I want to fake a healthy glow.
If there’s other products that you prefer then feel free to use them! 🙂
Starting with the Clarins True Radiance Foundation – it’s in the name really! I love this foundation as the formula is really lightweight, gives your skin a lovely glow plus it has brightening properties which is perfect for the look you’re trying to achieve.
As this is quite a natural look, I’ll skip the bronzer but you can add some for extra depth if you wish.
On the apples of the cheeks (plumpest part when you smile) apply a cream blush – I love the Essence Cosmetics Soo Blush as it’s a cream-to-powder meaning it applies like a cream and dries into a powder……once it’s set – it’s set!
Highlighter is a must when it comes to faking a healthy glow – if you have perfect skin, I’d say use highlighter and mascara only!
The KIKO Highlighting Ball is a product that I didn’t think I’d like as much but this creamy highlighter blends along the cheekbone beautifully and again, sets like a powder and looks great all day long!
Followed by 2 coats of the Elizabeth Grand Entrance Mascara and like I always say, use black mascara – it’s so much better and defines your eyes instantly!
Finally a touch of the Revlon Colorbust Lip Stain – I apply a few dots and then using my ring finger blend/dab into skin for a ‘stained‘ look…..I also think it lasts longer this way too!
How To Fake a Healthy Glow – What To Look Out For?
As you can see from above, I like keeping this a relatively simple look as the focus isn’t on any of your features, this is a look to make your skin appear healthy even when you might not be feeling great yourself….
The products I’ve selected ALL have brightening properties in them – this is key when it comes to selecting your products as it instantly makes your skin look a lot healthier and makes your job in the morning, getting ready, a lot easier too…
