Ready! Set! Glow!
Dewy and fresh skin requires serious hydration. It’s time to begin the transformation from dull and dry, to hydrated and glowing!
As your wardrobe changes each season, your skincare should change as well. Would you wear a wool sweater in the summer? Essential skincare begins with finding a moisturizer that works for your skin type.
For Oily Skin:
It’s important to use a moisturizer that is oil free or has some oil control. Being dewy does not mean looking greasy! An oil free moisturizer will help control any of the excess oil your skin produces during the warmer climate. A favorite for my clients with oily skin is Kate Somerville’s Oil Free Moisturizer.
For Dry Skin:
Try a face cream that is hydrating and works best to plump up fine lines and wrinkles, however, use only a nickel size for the entire face. You will be adding additional layers of moisture as you add texture onto your skin from skincare to makeup. Try out LaMer’s Soft Moisturizing Cream for that radiant look!
Once your skin is prepped and ready, apply a tinted moisturizer. One of the best tinted moisturizers on the market is Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer. This gives your skin the perfect amount of coverage with a beautiful finish and works for all skin types. It doesn’t hurt that it has SPF! Applying tinted moisturizer with a makeup brush means your application will have no wasted product in comparison with other makeup tools such as a Beauty Blender or sponge which can soak up too much liquid. A translucent powder (again Laura Mercier makes a great one) can counteract any shine, applied with a brush lightly to your t-zone. To finish, a bronzer swept across the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin will result is an effortless way to add a sun-touched glow. Add a pop of color on the cheeks, such as Tawny by Bobbi Brown, and 2-3 coats of mascara. Lip balm, and light handed touch of bronzy eyeshadow such as Charlotte Tilbury Marie Antoinette will have you ready, set glow in no time!
