My Glowy Beauty Routine

When it comes to beauty I'm all about looking glowy and radiant. Sometimes I'll just throw on a bit of highlighter and call it a day but if I start to look flat or dull, I know it's time to bring out my special products. Basically anything made for dry, dull or lack lustre skin. Of course you don't have to use all of these products at one time to look fresh and healthy but incorporating some of them into your routine will give you a more luminous and well rested appearance. Who doesn't want that? 
Prep
To get my skin looking and feeling it's best, I always start with my skincare. I love using oil based cleansers as they clean the skin well without stripping the moisture barrier. I usually reach for the Super Facialist Vitamin C Skin Renew Cleansing Oil which emulsifies to a milk with water or the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm which is a bit richer but still purifying. I always like to use a toner after cleansing and I find that mixing the Pixi Glow Mist and Hydrating Milky Mist together gives me an extra layer of oily goodness. To finish off my skincare I'll use a simple, hydrating moisturiser but if I'm looking particularly grey I'll use my Olay Everyday Sunshine Tinted Moisturising Cream which adds some colour to the face. Lip balm is also essential!

Makeup
Depending on what Im doing and what coverage I need I’ll either use a tinted moisturiser or a medium-full coverage foundation. Bare Minerals, La Roche Posay and L'Oreal make some of my favourites. Moving onto cheeks, I've found the Estee Lauder Summer Glow Multi Palette to be the perfect all in one product. It has a rosy pink blush, warm toned bronzer and a champagne highlighter. All of the shades have a subtle sheen which give that 'lit from within' look. If you don't have this palette you can find similar finishes and colours from Hourglass. For my eyes I like to keep it simple with tinted brow gel, mascara and a nude pencil on the waterline. When it comes to the lip you can do whatever you feel like on the day. Every now and then I'll go for something dark and matte but 99% of the time I'll be boring and use a tinted balm or gloss. Recently I've been loving the Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose and NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Salsa. Both are nude pink shades that add colour to the face but still keep everything soft and put together. 

So there's my line up for looking like an oil slick. I really hope you found it interesting and don't forget to let me know what products you use to glow!

Thank you so much for reading!
