How To: Glowing Skin.

If there’s one thing I always look for in makeup and skincare, it’s a glowing finish! I love the healthy finish to my skin and I always purchase products which help to achieve this.

Recently I’ve been trialling this wonder by Caudalie, the Vinexpert Radiance Day Fluid – a new lightweight fluid which helps to hydrate and illuminate the skin. I use this in the morning to give my skin a quick boost, it leaves my skin looking so radiant and helps to hide away blemishes and dull areas.
Next up, I apply a product I’ve been using recently which is Chanel’s Le Blanc De Chanel, a smooth, liquid primer which gives skin a brilliant glow. It’s used as a primer, under makeup or alone, to give a smooth finish to skin and also a lovely soft glow.
I sometimes add it in to my foundation if i’m in a hurry and I really like the even finish it gives.

Lastly is my all time favourite highlighting product, MACs Soft and Gentle MSF. I use this daily and adore it, it’s just the right amount of glow to my cheeks and adds so much to my skin. This smooths over my pores and generally makes my skin look flawless and so radiant.

I use the Caudalie moisturiser and MAC MSF daily, but save the Chanel base for days when my skin needs a real boost. I don’t always use these three products together as it might be overkill, but the moisturiser is more of a healthy glow, rather than a sparkly finish so this goes so well with Soft and Gentle, used as a highlighter.

What do you think of my glowing skin favourites?
