Hello!

Today I'm going to show you the products and techniques used to achieve a simple, natural, glowy makeup look that will make your skin appear youthful and flawless. It takes very little time, products and effort and will last you beautifully. That, said you don't have to use the exact same products, as they can be pricey, plus a good skincare routine always improves your makeup look immensely.

Prime the skin well and create a texture-free, smooth canvas that will help your makeup look better, not move or fade and last longer.

Tatcha The Silk Canvas Filter Finish Protective Primer

Use a medium coverage, silky, natural looking foundation that will not suck the life out of your skin and make you look flat, but will simply even out your skin tone, add radiance and won't leave you looking cakey and dry.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation

Same with concealer, heavy duty ones will appear very unnatural so opt for a bleandable one that will still brighten your undereyes, while looking like skin, just... better.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Use cream products rather than powders on top of powders, as creams blend naturally into the skin, last longer and enhance your features without being obvious and heavy. Bronzer/contour, blush and highlighter in one, to scult your face and give it dimension.

Hourglass Illume Sheer Color Trio in Sunset

Always set with powder, not only to avoid your makeup from melting off or moving around, but also to give a soft, silky look to your skin. Just don't overdo it with baking etc, choose a translucent powder that will be undetectable on the skin, a non cakey formula.

Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder

For that extra glow we all crave, use a light hand and a buttery powder formula that will enhance the cream highlight previously applied, and bring your features forward, making them pop.

Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter

Slightly intensify the look of your eyebrows by using a brow gel (with fibers if you have thinner, sparse hairs), and upward strokes to lightly feather them out and naturally shape your whole face.

Glossier Boy Brow Eyebrow Filler & Shaper

Elongate and seperate your lashes to open up your eyes, give them a wide and awake look and compliment their shape and colour. Also, waterpoof mascara holds the curl of your eyelashes better and won't flake off during the day. An option could also be white or beige eye pencil in the waterline (for smaller eyes).

Lip liners allow you to shape your mouth, colour in your lips and last longer than a typical lipstick or lip gloss, without being dry. Simply choose a colour close to your natural lip colour and fill them in.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner

Glosses, especially clear or nude ones, make the lips look shinier, juicier and fuller, without being dry and unnatural looking, like lipsticks and matte lip glosses.
