January is always a little bit gloomy, isn’t it? So, in an effort to add a bit of a glow to the month, I’ve been through my stash and decided if I can’t make the sun come out or a grand drop into my bank account, then I’ll concentrate on my makeup instead. These three will add some lit-from-within radiance that we could all do with on these (often) miserable mornings, right?
The Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer is one of my favourites for the perfect amount of glow underneath foundation. It imparts a golden-champagne toned radiance to the skin, blurs pores/imperfections and makes you look like you’ve had more sleep (or eight glasses of water) even when you’ve been eating pizza all weekend.
I’ve been going back to the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser a lot recently when my skin doesn’t need full coverage, but wants some glowy goodness. You can get up to a medium coverage with this one if you really want, but I find it works best when applied quite thinly and then you can add concealer in afterwards. I just really love the dewy finish this offers – it makes your skin look so pretty!
Now, if your base isn’t enough and you want to some extra glow on top then look no further than The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer Highlighter. This stuff is like moonbeams and sunshine condensed into powder form so gives you a glazed-donut look you never knew you wanted. It brings a lot of dimension and radiance to your face, even when used sparingly and I tend to pile this on if my face is looking a little dull. It’s love.
