The skincare products and primers to use for a glow face base
As with any type of makeup, the right skincare is the basis for a successful look. To prepare the skin for a luminous makeup is not enough to apply illuminating creams in large quantities or facial oils, but we must moisturize the skin (respecting the characteristics of our skin type, whether it is dry, combination o oily) sovrapponendo diversi prodotti per far sì che la nostra pelle appaia luminosa, rimpolpata e fresca. It is recommended to use a moisturizing toner, followed by a hyaluronic acid serum and finally a moisturizersuitable for your skin type. Also, don’t forget to moisturize theundereye area to prevent the concealer from going into the creases and drying out the area more easily, thwarting our efforts for a perfect glow base.
After applying the right skincare, you can increase the luminous effect with primers that will neautralize the discoloration and grayness of the face. If you have combination or oily skin, you can choose a primer with a blur effect to be applied only on pores and T-zone, or a smoothing primer to camouflage imperfections and small scars caused by acne.
On the other hand, if you have dry skin and want a wow effect, as a final step you can apply a face oil with illuminating particles such as the Blooming Serum Gold Infusion, which combines the moisturizing and elasticizing power of rosehip oil and sunflower seed oil with the beneficial anti-aging and other properties of 24 karat gold to give you a perfectly radiant and nourished complexion.
The foundations to use for a glow effect
After applying thorough skincare and primers, it’s time to apply foundation. If you want a low coverage, without sacrificing an even and perfected complexion, you can use a CC Cream: with minimum effort you will get a skin with the right glow effect, hydrated and perfectly flawless.
If you want more coverage, you can opt for a foundation with medium coverage as the Beyond Coverage Foundation: it covers imperfections, is suitable for all skin types for its thin formula, provides hydration and long hold, available in 20 shades. If you have oily or combination skin, just apply a veil of powder in the T-zone, without having to give up a glowing complexion!
Blush, bronzer and highlighter: which ones to use to complete a luminous face base
To enhance your complexion even more and make it glow, you’ll need to use the right products after your foundation. Don’t apply too much powderor products that are too matt or you will cancel the glow you got from applying the previous products!
Similarly, you should not go overboard with bright products: opt for cream or liquid products , which often have a light pigmentation and give the skin a healthy and natural look. Avoid bronzers, blushes and highlighter that contain microglitter, because the light will concentrate right there and you will lose the three-dimensionality and brightness you have achieved so far.
