We all deserve to get a bit of a glow after the year that was 2020. Whether you’re wearing makeup to do the food shop, honing your artistry skills or simply doing it for yourself (and your virtual meetings), one of the most popular current trends is building a glowing base (to pair with this eye makeup look).
At Illamasqua, we get asked daily on our social channels and Instagram Q&A’s how to create a glowing base to suit any makeup look. The good news? A radiant base suits almost every makeup look. The even better news? We have everything you need (including our Beyond Christmas collection) at Illamasqua.com.
While we all know a good highlighter does the trick in a pinch, these refined tips by our professional makeup artists will help you achieve a truly lit-from-within look.
1. It’s all in the primer
Head of Professional Development Frankie McKernon recommends an Illamasqua cult-favourite: Satin Primer. Pre-mix it with foundation or focus solely on the high-points of the face, Frankie’s tip will help you achieve a natural glow.
“My go–to product to create glowing skin is Satin Primer. It’s super versatile and easily added into your everyday makeup routine for a little more glow, especially during the winter months. Apply all over or concentrate on the high points of the face to add a natural dewy highlight. You can even mix with Skin Base Foundation to create a sheer, bespoke look.”
