Three Steps to an Illuminating Spring Glow
That springtime glow. We all want it. We’ve come out of the cold and darkness of winter, and we want to feel and look revitalized. So how do you get that fresh, dewy look even when you may be still feeling dry from the winter months? Here’s how to get your skin looking brand-new and radiant.
What You Need:
You will need a tinted moisturizer, like Elina Organics Sun Shelter, some highlighting cream such as MAC Stobe Cream or Botanics Radiance Balm All Bright, and a slightly-neutral-but-rosey cheek and lip color. I like Korres Lip Butter and Maybelline® Fit Me!® Blush. For deeper tones, look for berry hues such as the blush in Plum and for lips Wild Rose. For a fairer complexion, try Pink for cheeks and Pomegranate for lips.
After moisturizing, apply your highlighting cream and tinted moisturizer. You can do this by mixing the two on the back of your hand and then applying to your face with a brush. Or you can dab them separately onto your face, then blend with a brush. Using a brush will blend your products together nicely and will give you a more airbrushed and flawless look. Use half or less the amount of cream than that of your moisturizer. Don’t use powder unless it is sheer or translucent and in your more oily spots. The powder will dull that glow!
If you are a strobing queen or aspire to be, go ahead and add your highlighting powder here. Put it in the corners of your eyes, the bridge of your nose, and the top of your cheekbones for an extra pop of glow.
Add your blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend slightly up with your cheekbones. It’s better to start off with less and build than start off with too much and remove. The more you blend your blush with your face products, the more natural and flawless you will look (but try not to spread it too far!)
Dab on your tinted lip butter with a finger and finish off your look with mascara, some brow gel, and some super hydrating and refreshing Elina Organics Rose Water Mist. Throughout the day if you are starting to look oily or need a refresh, pat some sheer or translucent powder in only the oily spots to refrain from making your look too matte.
