This is the first installment of "How Do They Do That?". Today I will reveal the secret to acheiving that glowing look that all of Hollywood is obsessed with.
You don't have to have the perfect complexion to pull this look off. You don't have to be pregnant or tan or drink a ton of water to get that glow.
Here's what you do:
(Word of caution: too much shimmer can make you look greasy.)
Tools needed: Small contour blush brush
Angled blush brush
Medium stippling brush
Powder bronzer of your choice
Light pink or peach powder blush
Cream blush in same or similar shade
Highlighting powder or white, shimmery eye shadow
The process: Start with your bronzer and the contour brush. Purse your lips together like you're puckering up for a kiss. Notice the area just below your cheekbones. This is the are you want to contour starting at the temple and working your way downward.
Next, take your angled brush and apply your pink or peach powder blush to the apples of your cheeks. Try smiling to define the area. Start from the apple and work your way back to the temples. I follow up with a Kabuki brush to blend the bronzer and blush slightly so there are no obvious lines.
Then, use your finger tips to apply your cream blush just over the area you used your powder blush on. Make sure that you stipple it on lightly and avoid rubbing it in.
Finally, take your stippling brush and apply the highlighting powder or eyeshadow just above the apples of your cheeks. You don't want to do too much or have it cover too wide of an area. Apply just enough to highlight the cheekbones.
Tada! No you have a dewy complextion and it was easy!
