Want to make that post-vacation glow last all year? Discover the secret to effortless radiance, even on your busiest days! This simple tutorial will give you the glowy makeup look you want in seven steps.

What is a glowy makeup look?

A glowy look is when you use beauty products to create a radiant and dewy complexion. The secret ingredient for a light and fresh glow up? Highlighter! It’s key to creating a natural look you can wear every day. Plus, it’s suitable for all skin types—you just need to find the right products.

Getting a glowy look in seven steps

To create a simple glowy makeup look, grab some multi-use products that are easy to apply on all skin types. Lightweight, breathable and made with over 99% natural origin ingredients*, our favourites will get you the look you want.

*Except for highlighters

1. Prepare your skin

For an all-day glow that doesn’t run, make sure you use a good makeup base, especially in the summer. Skin tends to get oily faster than usual in the heat. Start your makeup ritual with a matifying cream to the T zone. The product’s phytoglycogen hydrates, while the arrowroot powder efficiently absorbs excess sebum for a flawless makeup base without any extra shine.

On the other hand, if your skin needs more radiance, it would be better to turn to the Phyto-glow serum and creams. They’re made with phytoglycogen and encapsulated and stabilized vitamin C to give radiance to the skin and unify the complexion.

2. Get an even skin tone

For the most natural glowy makeup look, start with a lightweight foundation that’s easy to apply on all skin types. Apply it all over your face with a swipe and blend with your fingertips, a brush or sponge to even it out and get a naturally radiant complexion.

Pro tip

For optimal results, warm up the foundation on your skin so that it’s creamier and easier to apply. Blend with a makeup brush or sponge.

3. Cover up under-eye circles and blemishes

Brighten up your eyes with a smooth and creamy concealer that will discreetly cover up your blemishes and any evidence of long summer nights without smothering your skin. It comes in a retractable tube so you can apply it more easily.

Pro tip

For optimal results, warm up the concealer on your skin so that it’s creamier and easier to apply. Blend gently with a makeup brush or sponge.

4. Bronze and sculpt contour

After a long winter, your skin could use a boost. Apply some bronzer for a radiant effect. Choose a shade that matches your skin tone for contouring so you can add dimension to your face while playing with natural light. If you want a more lightweight and subtle glowy makeup look, you can skip the foundation—bronzer is enough to brighten up your skin.

Pro tip

Apply bronzer in the shape of number 3 — from your temples across your cheeks, and then the jawbone.

5. Add a touch of pink

For an effortless glowy makeup look, opt for a lightweight blush that will give your cheeks a hint of pink. Apply it to the cheekbones and then blend the colour upwards.

Pro tip:

Create a 3D effect by applying a lighter shade on your cheekbones and a darker shade on the apples of your cheeks.

6. Give your complexion a burst of radiance

To supercharge your skin’s glow, highlighter is a must. It will help your beauty shine! Thanks to its creamy texture, you can easily apply it to the high points of your face like the tops of your cheekbones and the centre of your forehead for a naturally glowy look. The highlighter can be mixed with a foundation in the light areas of the face to get more radiance.

Tip for bright eyes

Stick bronzers and highlighters are great multi-use products—they can also be used as eyeshadow! For an even brighter look, apply it under the brow bone and to the inner corners of the eyes.

7. Make your lips shine
