This week we show you how to create a sophisticated and timeless glowing occasion look which would work for day or evening.
This look focusses on three key elements – a dewy, glowing skin, defined eyes and a pop of peachy pink on the lips. The overall feel is subtle yet striking and works to accentuate the eyes and lips in perfect synergy while the luminous skin further helps to create an ethereal feel.
To banish any darkness under the eyes, a small amount of Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage in Bisque is gently buffed into the skin. This shade is perfect for counteracting darkness and lifting the overall look of the skin. YSL Top Secrets Glow Perfecting Mist is spritzed onto the skin to give a shot of hydration and longevity to your look.
One of the most iconic Guerlain products is their Meteorites Light-Revealing Pearls of Powder which have been highlighting complexions since they launched in 1987. With stardust technology, a light-creating polymer, these beautiful pearls of powder work to transfer light, normally invisible to the naked eye, into an illuminating glow. With a combination of highlighting, colour correcting and matte tones, a small dusting on the high points of your face such as the temple and upper cheekbones, your skin will have a stunning halo of radiance.
Use a fan brush to gently dust over the pot of pearls and then lightly apply to your face – a small amount can also be added to the top of your cupids bow to accentuate your lips.
The Blać Cosmetics Autumn Lust Refillable Palette is the perfect addition to your makeup regime. With their ethical and organic approach to their range, you know your skin is in good hands not to mention the beautiful colour pay off these tones offer. The shade Root Beer Matte is buffed into the upper and lower lash line before being buffed out using the shade Deep Apricot working to accentuate eyes and add a modern take on a smokey eye.
To further add to this luminous look, Guerlain Terracotta The Sun Kissed Healthy Glow Powder in Light is lightly applied to the complexion. This vitamin-rich powder offers a kaleidoscope of bronze tones helping to create a natural, radiant finish with just the right amount of subtle shimmer. A large powder brush is a perfect tool to apply this powder to the complexion.
The finished look is radiant and fresh using just the right amount of definition around the eyes and lips helping to ensure the skin is also the star of the overall look. A look like this can be easily translated to a day or evening event.
