It’s that time of the year where the festive season is almost here and you most likley stuck in the office with piles of work trying to get everything done. Everyone I have been chatting to is over stressed and over worked. So I decided to write a quick post on a great glowing makeup combo I like to use to add a glow to my complexion especially when I am in need of a lift. We often get tired and our skin starts to look a little dull and makeup is a great way to give it a lift. Of course remember good skincare too!!!
Highlighter and lip gloss are my go to glowing makeup combo when I am in need of a lift. The highlighter adds such a gorgeous glow to the skin it makes you look “lit from within’. You don’t have to spend a fortune and its super eay to achieve.
I love the Makeup Revolution Ultra Pro Glow Palette as its not only affordable at R230 but it has 8 shades. You can work this baby all year round with most skin tones. Its actually really great quality and gives a glow that you gonna love. Right now I am all about the pink highlighter from the palette and its what I am using here.
The pink shade just adds that extra pop and colour to your complexion is just simply gorgeous. You can actually work it down to your cheeks as well. Along the bridge of your nose and on your cupids bow. Take a larger brush for the cheek bones and a pencil brush for the lips and nose.
For the lips gloss just works a treat if you are trying to cheat that glow. It just adds something to your overall glow. Here again I have gone for a drugstore product because I wanted to show makeup can be affordable as well. Revlon have bought out a range of nudes called the Kiss Plumping Lip Creme’s. They are pretty and a lovely gloss to the lips.They come in 10 shades and are about to launch in stores.
The overall look is so simple and so pretty. I kept makeup really simple here after I prepped my skin with Environ and my used my new fave face mist the Esthederm Eau Cellulaire. I applied my foundation and mascara and then literally worked the highlighter and lip creme and voila and easy look.
