How To Achieve That Oh-So Glowy Skin Look

Glowing skin is on our 2024 beauty vision board and it’s going to happen for us (and you too, btw!). And here’s why. We’ve finally cracked the code to a glowing complexion that’s achievable. That’s right, it turns out you don’t even have to have good skin genes to get it (although, let’s be real, it helps). All you really need to unlock a Hailey Bieber-worthy glow is the right combo of skin and makeup essentials. Keep reading for this tried-and-true recipe for skin that glows. 

Always start with a glow serum primer.

If you want to manifest glowy skin, you’ll need a glow serum primer. Apply this to your freshly cleansed skin for these two reasons: it will give your face an instant filtered effect that makes your skin look luminous, healthy and hydrated, thanks to niacinamide and watermelon extract. The formula will also help optimize your skin complexion products, like foundation, by giving you a smooth and even base for them to do their thing.


Choose your tool fighter.

Not to get too dramatic but the right tools are everything when it comes to getting your glowy complexion right. You won’t get snatched skin results with just any old brush. You need a hero buffer brush to ensure your foundation blends into your skin seamlessly. If you’re looking for that airbrushed skin effect, try this microfiber airbrush blender–it perfectly embraces the contours of your face and helps to blend products in like a dream. Remember, a seamless complexion is more likely to reflect light and that’s the look you’re going for.


A hydrating foundation formula always wins.

For truly glowy skin, you’ll have to work in layers to build that final luminous skin effect. A crucial step to locking in your best glow is with a hydrating foundation. This is important because a foundation covers a lot of skin real estate, and you’ll want one that brings the glow. This formula does just that with mega moisturizers like hyaluronic acid and aloe vera. Its weightless finish brings your skin to life while giving great coverage and hours and hours of wear.


Bring on the cream blush.

A glowy skin complexion just won’t hit without cream blush. Think of your skin in its most natural state. You know when you blush and your cheeks turn that perfect shade of rose? That’s the look to go for with your cream blush. Look for a formula that blends into the skin easily like this stick version. It’ll leave your cheeks fresh and flushed in the best way.


Hooray for highlighter!

When it comes to getting your glow on, highlighter will bring you to the glowy skin finish line. It’s the final step and finishing touch that can take your skin to that truly luminous next level. Here’s how you make your highlighter count. Choose a highlighter with a fine shimmer like this shimmery powder formula, which makes your skin look shimmery (read not sparkly). You’ll want to apply it strategically to the areas of the face that you want to elevate so that your whole face doesn’t become too reflective. Stick to key areas like your cheeks, the center of the forehead, the middle of your nose and Cupid’s bow.
