3 Makeup Essentials For That Celebrity Glow

No matter your skin tone, follow these tips for looks that give you a natural, healthy radiance

Get The Look: Natural Radiance
Zoe Saldana’s honey-toned skin is luscious on its own – but to make yours glow, all you need is a good, buildable tinted moisturiser that can bend and flex with your skin and has a wide range of shades to suit anyone.

  •  Try Laura Mercier’s Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide, RM189 – it comes in 24 (yes, 24!) different shades so you know you’ll definitely get the colour you need! Apply it all over face, particularly on cheekbones and forehead to highlight your bone structure.
  • Dab on concealer to hide dark under-eye circles.
  • Skip loose powder for a dewy finish. Instead, apply an illuminating powder on forehead, nose, chin and cheekbones to highlight facial contours.

For a medium-tone colour that exudes sexy radiance like Jennifer Aniston’s tan, skip the extras and concentrate on a swathe of colour on the cheeks.

  • For buildable medium coverage, creamy-textured foundations glide over skin to mask minor imperfections.
  • Banish sallow skin and choose a powder blush for easy application; if you have dry skin, go for a cream blush or something like Benefit Fine One One, RM120, a lip-and-cheek illuminator that glides on sheer with three different shades to give you that radiant flush.
  • Complete the look with come-hither lashes using volumising mascara, or add falsies for more drama.

With fair skin, opt for a fresh-face with just a hint of colour to give you that “is-she-or-isn’t-she-wearing-makeup?” look. For an all-natural healthy radiance like Reese Witherspoon’s, a good foundation or tinted moisturiser is your must-have tool.

  • Make your dewy complexion last by prepping with primer first so makeup stays fresh throughout the day.
  • On the apples of your cheeks, sweep on a rosy pink cheek colour to brighten up your complexion.
  • Opt for a lip stain as it is not as pigmented as a regular lipstick. We love Dior Addict Lip Glow, RM103, a sheer balm that goes on silky to enhance your natural lip colour while imparting moisture to your pout.
