Sometimes, less is definitely more and with spring just around the corner, what better time to embrace the ever popular ‘no makeup, makeup’ look? It’s an iconic look coveted by many, thanks to the vast array of runway models often seen sporting their bare faced beauty and flaunting their effortless, enviable glow. Although it’s soft and natural, this look can be perfectly executed using the correct beauty products. We thought we would show you how to ‘get the glow’ using just six Milani makeup items:
First things first, prepping your skin is extremely important when trying to achieve a smooth canvas. For a gorgeous glowy base, apply a hydrating primer like the Milani Prime Light Strobing and Pore Minimising Face Primer using your finger tips for the best absorption, warming and working the product beautifully into your skin. This primer instantly gives a visible boost of radiance, minimises pores, blurs imperfections and perfectly prepares your skin for concealer or foundation. A makeup must-have and skincare saviour in one!
When it comes to creating a dewy, glowing base, foundation isn’t always necessary. For a fresher look, use a touch of concealer on any areas that need attention. The Milani Retouch and Erase Light Lifting Concealer expertly conceals dark under eye circles and any blemishes while brightening dull areas. The cushion applicator is ideal for gently dabbing product under the eyes and anywhere else on the face. To achieve an airbrushed appearance, use a damp blending sponge to spread the product for a stunning, dewy complexion – we recommend the Real Techniques Complexion Blending Sponge.
Add a soft, sun kissed shimmer to your face using a bronzer, we love the Milani baked bronzer in shade Glow. This finely milled, silky powder adds a healthy flush of colour, instantly brightening and bronzing your face. Use a fluffy brush like the EcoTools Bamboo Kabuki Brush for a natural finish and even application. Focus on adding colour to your cheekbones, temples and the tip of your nose to cheat your way to a realistic tan, or gently sweep a fine dusting of product all over for a gorgeous, golden gleam.
You can’t complete a glowing makeup look without the use of highlighter. Arguably one of the most sought after beauty products around this year, highlighters work to effortlessly illuminate your cheek bones, for a beautiful, radiant look. We recommend using the Milani Illuminating Face Powder which is a 2 in 1 blusher and highlighter. Apply to areas that naturally reflect light such as your cheeks, cupids bow and your T-zone using the Vintage Cosmetic Company Fantail Brush.
Available in a range of different shades, this impressive product gives delicate rosy cheeks, as well as a shimmery finish. Shade Hermosa Rose is a gorgeous blend of peach toned pinks, bronzes and champagnes; resulting in a fresh, flawless complexion; whatever your skin tone.
For a more understated effect, we recommend skipping this step but if you want a seriously glowing look, then opt for a natural toned, super shiny lip gloss. Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in shade Luminous is great for finishing your soft makeup vibe. Apply on top of bare lips for subtle colouring and a luscious lustre.
To complete your effortless, glowing makeup look setting spray is essential. Not only does it add moisture and hold your makeup in place all day, the Milani Make It Dewy 3-in-1 setting spray hydrates and illuminates the skin surface, for a youthful and brightened complexion. Spray a light mist of product all over the face to enhance the appearance of your skin, resulting in a refreshed, flawless finish. You glow girl!
