Faking Natural Radiance.

Saturday, 1 March 2014

I love nothing more than makeup that gives you natural, radiant looking skin. When your skin looks fresh and vibrant with only using the help of a few products, it can really make a huge, yet subtle difference.

I start by using Bourjois Healthy Mix, it has a really light to medium coverage and leaves my skin glowing and looking very natural. This has to be my favourite foundation at the minute, it is really dewy and really does make my skin look 'healthy'.

I help to conceal my dark circles with just a tiny bit of YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch, using one click of this for each eye, blending it in with my finger. I love love love this concealer, it doesn't cake or stand out, which is the perfect concealer when you want to achieve a natural, oh yes I wake up like this everyday' kind of look.

Highlighters are a key part of my makeup routine, and whether wearing a full face of makeup or just using a few choice products, I always use one. My favourites are MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle and Topshop highlighter in Crescent Moon. They add such a subtle lovely glow to your skin, without making it too obvious that you are wearing them. 

When going for a natural makeup look, I tend to only curl my lashes using these eyelash curlers from The Vintage Cosmetic Company. They give your lashes a lovely curl, opening your eyes without layering the mascara on. 

On my lips i'll opt for an MUA lipstick, especially this one in a really natural, glossy pink shade. It adds a really subtle baby pink tint to your lips. It doesn't last ages on the lips but I don't mind reapplying it, for £1 you aint gonna expect much! 

What are your go to products when it comes to looking radiant??!
