Beauty Spotlight: Illuminated Skin.
It goes without saying that I’m not one for looking glittery, give me the natural look any day. My routine often begins with a brightening primer, usually the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, a lovely warm, peachy primer that preps the skin by blurring imperfections and helping to create an even, bright skin tone. I sometimes mix this in with my foundation but usually I apply it first for a more minimal look. I believe BECCA are relaunching their range so hopefully we’re not losing them just yet.
For days off when I want a small amount of coverage but more of a natural finish, I apply Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint for a sheer base. I usually wear this alone as it’s illuminating enough as it is. It doesn’t have a lot of coverage at all (I first thought this was a primer but it is meant to be used as a foundation) but for everyday use it works like a dream, concealing any blemishes and helping my skin in the radiance department.
Another lazy day product I love using is the Maybelline Dream Soft Blush in Apricot, I dot this on to cheekbones and brow bone like a highlighter. It’s easy to use, affordable and just gives me a touch of highlight where I need it.
For more important occasions (other than work), I swear by MACs Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skin Finish. I don’t use a lot of MAC products on a regular basis these days but I do adore this highlighter, it’s subtle enough for every day and highlights all your best bits. I reach for this most out of all the highlighters that I own (a fair few now) and it’s a MAC must have in my opinion.
What do you use for a lil bit of shimmer?
