1. Perfect your skin
Exfoliate on a daily basis to get rid of the dead skin cells and generate radiant glowy skin. Do a mask treatment once a week and moisturise morning and night to keep your skin hydrated.
2.Choose a luminous coverage foundation
My top picks include:
Laura Mercier's Silk Foundation - high end, lightweight full coverage
Bare Minerals Foundation(Original)- mineral loose powder formula
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation- natural, luminous, liquid formula
Revlon's Photoready Foundation- light reflecting, photo-loving, affordable
DiorSkin Airflash Spray Foundation- sheer, buildable coverage, high end
3. Set your foundation with a light reflecting powder
Select a light reflecting powder such as a mineral veil, setting powder or MAC's mineralized skin finish that contains light reflecting particles. Depending on your skin tone, choose either a powder that has more yellow based finish if you are tan or pink based finish if you have paler complexion.
4. Highlight the high points on your face
Choose a highlighting cream if you have dry skin and highlighting powder if you have oily skin and apply it on the high points of your face. Apply with a fan brush above your cheekbones, in the centre of your forehead and then down the centre of your nose. You can even dab some above your cupid's bow and on your chin to elongate your face shape. To find out how to contour your face, visit my video on How to contour your face and look 10 lbs skinnier.
5. Stay hydrated
Dry and dull skin will hinder you from getting dewy, glowing skin. Spray a finishing mist or spring water over your makeup to achieve a dewy, airbrushed finish that will also hydrate your skin.
