A fresh glow is something everyone would love to have and there are copious amounts of advise around in how to achieve it. Basically you need to clean your face to remove make up and impurities religiously, drink lots of water, eat well, exercise regularly and sleep like a baby without a care in the world for around 8 hours straight! I don’t know about you but I fail miserably at doing all of the above. Some for lack of time, some because I love crisps, chocolate and wine and the most important of all (sleep) because my kids couldn’t care less about my complexion and God forbid Mummy gets a full night sleep! That is just unheard of around here. So I do the best next thing in order to achieve a fresh glow. I fake it!
Don’t worry I’m not about to go through some complicated and time-consuming make up routine involving millions of products to get that fresh glow. All you need is a good moisturizer, the right foundation and a fantastic light reflecting and subtle bronzer.
Here’s what I do.
- Mix a little bit of the foundation with your moisturizer on the back of your hand and apply freely on your face and neck. I like to do it like this because it easier and quicker than applying foundation on top of your moisturizer and also because I don’t want it to look heavy. I just want enough foundation to even my skin tone and leave it looking quite natural rather than painted.
- Apply bronzer to cheekbones and then lightly to forehead, nose, chin and neck. This will give you an instant glow. Make sure your bronzer is not too dark for your skin tone.
And that’s it. That’s all I ever do when I want to give my face a fresh glow. Scroll down to see which products I currently use to fake a healthy glow.
