SISJ BEAUTY – GET YOUR GLOW ON >

You know those days where you wake-up, look in the mirror and hear yourself mutter… UGH? Well that is me several times a week (plus some!). This dullness or meh-ness as I like to call it, can be due to a number of factors. Of course life in general is one (!!!), poor sleep, dehydration/too much caffeine, I personally have had Hay fever all week (WTF, it’s still winter Mother Nature!) and a head cold, so these too can trigger some meh-ness! In all my beauty blog posts and reviews, you will notice I’ve never waivered from wanting a dewy, glowy (is that a real word?) finish, when it comes to my make-up. Even if you are someone who doesn’t feel confident when it comes to contouring and highlighting, I feel like a gorgeous glow naturally brings out the definition in everyone’s face and adds dimension. Today I’ve included some of my own tips, some fab products I use and what I’ve got on in the above look. Enjoy and happy face painting!


MY MAKE-UP TIPS:
  • Applying primer before your foundation is a non-negotiable in my world and I use this in addition to a moisturiser, serum or oil (I find my foundation always lasts longer as well)
  • If you want a really natural glow (no foundation) and you’re also feeling meh, mix an illuminator (liquid) with your primer or moisturiser and apply with your fingers (entire face/neck)
  • Lightly apply a powder form illuminator to your entire face, not just the usual ‘highligting’ areas. I do this with both light and heavier make-up applications right at the end if I feel my skin needs an extra kick of glowiness

SOME FAB PRODUCTS TO TRY (powder & liquid):
  • Hydra-Bronzing Tinted Serum – By Terry
  • Meteorites (Light Revealing Pears of Powder) – Guerlain
  • Luminosity Shimmer Whip – ModelCo. Cosmetics
  • Liquid Lumiere – Chantecaille
  • Lumi Serum – By Terry
  • Telluride (Illuminating Powder) – Bobbi Brown & Illuminating Bronzer Powder (range of colours!) – Bobbi Brown

PRODUCTS I USED IN TODAY’S LOOK:

FACE – I mixed my usual foundation Giorgio Armani Designer Lift with some of the Perricone MD (No Bronzer Bronzer liquid) AND some of the Luminosity by ModelCo. Cosmetics. I literally swirled these all together and applied them with a foundation brush and finished with a buffer brush all over. The buffer brush gives you the most flawless finish – this is an absolute MUST in all beauty bags (I use the Bobbi Brown one)

CHEEKS – I used the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate (shade only) to give me some extra oomff along my cheekbones and then applied my all-time face Boys Don’t Cry Nars blush (I think this has been discontinued but the Outlaw is very similar). I didn’t actually add any extra illuminator, as I went cray-cray on the base – as above

EYES – This was a combination of my Guerlain – natural browns/bronzes and my all-time face Burberry (Eye Colour Silk – in Shell and Porcelain). I used the ModelCo. Cosmetics Lash & Line eyeliner and mascara (2 in 1!)

BROWS – Chanel Perfect Brows kit (middle brown & dark brown combined)

LIPS – Shanghai Suzy Miss Leah lipstick with the Chanel Coco Rouge Shine no. 96 ‘Boheme’ on top
