Want to know the best products to achieve that summer glow? Illamasqua has always been pretty advanced when it comes to bringing out creative products in fun shades, but today I've got something very special that's completely blown me away for when it comes to achieving that dewy-faced look.
I just recently jumped on the bandwagon and picked up the Illamasqua Radiance Veil Primer! After using lots of other products from the brand I knew this would be impressive, especially after all the positive feedback I've been seeing across the net and Instagram. This is the main product I use to achieve that flawless summer glow that looks completely natural underneath my makeup base. The Illamasqua Radiance Veil is the first thing I use after cleansing with the EpiSpa Organic Illuminating Hot Cloth Cleanser for the perfect start to my morning skincare regime. This is the perfect cleanser for starting the day with as it leaves my skin super soft and much more radiant making it ideal for that summer glow. After cleansing, I like to then apply the GLAMGLOW Youth Mud Mask (once a week) to keep on top of that natural glow as this has to be one of the best masks I've used for completely changing my skin and leaving it fresher, dewy, plump and soft with its deep exfoliation technology.
Just like the GLAMGLOW Face mask, I will apply a small amount of the Madame La La Bronzing Serum once or twice a week during the summer months to give my skin some colour and to boost results. Once this is done I will then tone the skin using one of my all time favourites at the moment from Ole Henriksen. The Pick Me Up Facial Mist is packed full of vitamin C and chamomile to brighten the complexion, and by god it really does work!.... I've included the Pixi Glow Tonic as this works very similar to the Pick Me Up Mist mentioned above and just leaves my skin glowing! The ingredients are super gentle and exfoliate away dead skin, making it perfect to begin your base in the mornings. Now that my skin is in the order it's time to work some favourites of mine into my makeup regime and these are exciting products for boosting that glow that can be applied underneath or on top of your finished look. The Illamasqua Radiance veil is very versatile this way that it can be used as a primer or you could even try it as a super pigmented highlight and eyeshadow primer which I've done in the past for a more dramatic finish. It's a brilliant little multi-tasker and I can't wait to give it a solo review so I can explain in more depth how it actually works.
As for Gleam from Anastasia Beverly Hills, this is a more recent purchase of mine over the past month or so and one I've been using every day! I haven't come across a highlighting palette like this! It's absolutely stunning and gives perfect results. I sweep this over the higher points of my face and down my nose and cupids bow for a beautiful glow that highlights the face in the most flattering of places for a natural finish. I'll then finish with the new Jouer Mermaid Collection Fairy Shimmer Lip Creme for a pretty finish to the overall look and the shimmer particles come in brilliant for plumping the lips and giving the perfect finish. This is the icing on the cake for achieving that dewy finish and hopefully, you'll try these products for yourself.
