The Glow Getters
There is honestly something so healthy about having fresh, glowy skin and whilst some of that comes from various skincare choices, no one looks like a goddess every day so some is definitely from clever makeup choices.
Skincare wise, if ever I have a day trip to London or a day of meetings and events, I reach for a mask to give me that glow from within look. The key to glowy skin is getting rid of dead skin so alot of products that claim to create a glow contain AHA's. One of my favourites is the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask which smells like off citrus but is amazing at rejuvenating your skin and leaving it baby soft and fresh.
But makeup wise, I definitely think a lot of the glow from within is from the primer which is why I love the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance which is like a toned down strobe cream. The MAC Strobe Cream is great but I find it can sometimes make me feel like a disco ball. The Laura Mercier primer is golden in colour and is far more toned down.
I think a great way of making you look healthy is through golden or bronze eyeshadows and they are definitely best in the form of a cream eyeshadow. The Maybelline Cream Eyeshadow in On and On Bronze is a great start if funds are tight (£3.49!!!) and it's slightly more paired down. A new one to my collection is the Makeup Geek Pigment in After Glow which when mixed with a setting spray or a glitter glue gives the most incredible foiled effect. And finally, the Illamasqua Cream Eyeshadow in Galaxy is the boldest gold you can imagine - ideal for Christmas parties and I'm obsessed. Illamasqua are great for OTT colours and pigments and this is no exception.
But finally, for the ultimate healthy glow, who could forget the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso which is a cheaper dupe for the Hourglass's Baked Blushes. It adds a lovely radiance to your cheeks and because of the highlight within it, you don't need to bother with a highlighter. Great for what I like to call "Pretty" makeup.
