I notice that you always have a glow. How do you get that? Can I please get that? I don’t want to mess it up and look like my 80s prom picture.
Dear Reamy W.,
Why, thank you!
It’s soooo easy to get “that glow” when there are so many illuminating/glow-getting products on the market today. People are fearful of looking frosty or ashy, they tell me. That is the shimmer of the past. Today’s shimmer is glowing, dewy, fresh and YOUTHFUL!
Here’s your BeautyFrosting “Glow” Recipe:
Start with moisturized skin. Illuminators will cause parched skin to look downright desert-like. So be sure to press your favorite moisturizer or oil (I’ve been using Creme de La Mer for 16 years) into your skin.
Follow with a tinted sunscreen. I love Bobbi Brown’s Extra SPF 25 Tinted Balm for dry skin, Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer
or Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer.
Then grab your favorite blender brush (I love Armani’s) and one of the following illuminators: Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer #3
or Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector.
Brush on the tops of cheekbones (right below the eye socket) for a youthful dewy glow and on “bow” of lips which makes your lips look fuller and makes the color pop!
You’ll be glowing, effortlessly, in no time!
