Make up trends come and go but there is one look that never seems to lose popularity - glowing skin. It is true that perfectly matched foundation and highlighter can do wonders for achieving this look but I find that the colour you apply to your eyes, cheeks and lips is the game changer if you really want that natural and healthy glow. It is the colour in fact, not the texture of the products you choose, that makes the real difference so go with your preference for cream, fluid or powder make up.
For some time now my Instagram and Pinterest feeds have been filled with radiant faces, you know the ones; luminous, sun kissed, are you even wearing make up skin? I thank @aniamilczarczyk and @tobimakeup for feeding my obsession with lots of groomed, natural and peach hued visages. What I also noticed was the variety of complexions that benefited in the same way from these peachy tones, they all had “that glow.”
What makes peach so versatile? It is made up of pink, red, orange and yellow undertones so it basically suits everyone. It also has a softness and warmth that can help lift tired, dull and uneven skin tones creating a fresher and more youthful appearance (this sleep deprived mother needs help on all counts).
So, what is the best way to achieve this look?
1. Start with your preferred natural foundation or skip it if you love to wear bare skin (high 5 to you!). We LOVE rms beauty “un” cover up and Inika Organic Liquid Foundation with Hyaluronic Acid
3. Apply your favourite natural mascara and clean up any black smudges with a cotton tip. We LOVE Kjaer Weis Mascara.
4. Now its time to have fun with colour. You can choose to apply your selected peach shade to eyes, cheeks, lips or all three. The best way to do this is choose where you want the colour to pop - eyes OR lips - and keep your other features subtle with a soft wash of colour. There are so many amazing multi-tasking products on the market so if you are lazy or time poor, choose a 3 in 1 like rms beauty lip2cheek and simply pat, dab and swipe colour where you would like it and build up to your chosen intensity. Easy peasy!
This would have to be my most favoured make up look for day but it can just as easily be vamped up for night (a smoky bronzed or rich ochre eye would really set this look off).
