There is a place in our minds, where we uphold an ideal version of ourselves – being leaner, fitter, toned, with a great closet, full of beautiful pieces and healthy glowing skin to go with it. As far as opinions go, a gorgeous radiant complexion is essentially the most important of all.
With spring upon us, there is no better time like the present to employ radiance enhancing techniques to your daily makeup regimen, that guarantee an instant healthy glow. This is can be achieved by incorporating the effortless makeup method of strobing – put in simpler terms – highlighting. Gone is the battle with dull, unflattering skin or spending several hours in front of the mirror perfecting a contoured look. Strobing is easier and uses radiance-reflecting products such as YSL’s Beaute’s Touche Eclat or Estee
Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Illuminator to add a subtle sheen to parts of the face that naturally catch the light. By highlighting features such as the cheekbones, upper lip, forehead, the bridge of the nose and chin, you give your skin a more youthful tone accompanied by an enhanced, dewy finish. With the aid of light-reflecting powders, pearlescent lotions, and highlighters, strobing adds luminosity by blending strokes of bronzes, metallics, and soft golds. Perfectly flattering on anyone and is easy to execute.
GET THE LOOK
Radiance as a Base – As a first step, you will want to recharge dry dull skin with a light moisturising base or powder foundation that gives a beautiful natural finishing touch.
A Touch of Light – To add an illuminating effect to the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, chin, your cupid’s bow and under the brow, opt for non-sparkly highlighters that will give a more reflective sheen. Erasing any signs of tiredness, fatigue and encouraging a well-rested radiant glow. Perfect for covering dark circles and blemishes.
Brighter Eyes – Eye-shadows need, not be too loud. To brighten tired eyes and give them an uplift, use light-reflecting eyeshadows such as soft washes of ethereal metallic shades. Dab a hint of concealer under eyes for a refreshing finish.
