How to: Glossy skin for spring

Back again with another easy, daytime beauty look for spring! I love dewy skin, so for this look, I decided to ditch to powder products all-together (except for a tiny bit of Wowder to set the concealer under my eyes and around my nose), and pile on Face Gloss instead.

Like I just mentioned, putting this makeup look together was super-easy. I used Bali Body’s BB Cream (I’m in the shade Natural), Tarte’s Shape Tape concealer (Light Neutral) and Glossier‘s Wowder (Light/Medium) to create a flawless base with medium coverage. To ensure my face stayed as dewy as possible, I angled the Wowder brush carefully to maintain full control when setting my under-eye concealer for precise application. With the same technique, I also set the concealer around my nose, where I tend to get a little redness (especially during allergy season). I “melted” the powder into my skin with MAC’s Fix+, my fav setting spray.

Cream bronzers and blushes are the best! Fenty Beauty’s Match Stix Matte Skinstick in Mocha is the best for contouring and rinsing up the skin. It blends like the dream and always looks really natural. I used this on the hollows of my cheeks, my temples, along my hairline, in the crease of my eyes and across the bridge of my nose to create a glowy, sun kissed effect and add a little definition. Normally, I would add a powder bronzer on top (my go-to is BECCA’s Capri Coast), but decided to skip that step for this look; a natural look is key.

In place of blush, I went in with Fenty’s Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Rum on the apples of my cheeks. This really amped up the bronze-y glow.

I used the tips of my fingers to press Milk Makeup’s Face Gloss into the skin on the cheek bones, orbital eye bones, brow bones and cupid’s bow–all the places I normally add highlighter. This product catches the light just as well as a highlighter–if not better than a highlighter–but with an ultra-dewy, never shimmery finish. A little goes a long way with Face Gloss, so it’s best to start with a small amount and layer more on top where you want more.

Glossier‘s Boy Brow (in Brown) is the brow product I use, and it goes perfectly with the rest of the makeup I used today. Two coats always gives me bolder brows with a natural, feathery look.

After combing and curling my lashes, I added two coats of Milk’s new KUSH mascara. This was my first time trying it out, so I am really excited to see how it holds up throughout the day. (I can’t seem to find a mascara that doesn’t smudge under my eyes…)

To polish off the look (literally), I applied two coats of Fenty’s Gloss Bomb (in the shade Fenty Glow). This gloss is intensely shiny, which was my goal, with the most gorgeous pink-peach-nude undertones. It applies evenly and weightlessly, and has a smooth, fresh, never-sticky feeling.
