Makeup Medley No. 4: Get the Glow

This past week I've been wearing the same makeup every day (retail during the holidays is no joke), so I thought I'd do another Makeup Medley! This time it's all about glowy skin and a super quick easy eye that I don't need to think about.

For base, I've been loving this Estee Edit Skin Glowing Balm. It's a light, moussey-balm texture with a bit of coverage that helps to even out the skin. It's really more of a skincare-makeup hybrid, containing Pink Peony, Evening Primrose Oil, and Muru Muru Seed Oil. It DOES also contain Shea butter, which I know is a bummer for some people. In terms of wear, I have fairly combo skin and I don't have any trouble with it getting too glowy on my t-zone. If you have very oily skin, I might stay away of prepare to powder. For a little added coverage, I haven't put my Glossier Stretch Concealer down. It blends in effortlessly and looks just like skin. I do set a bit under my eyes and on my t-zone with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light so that it stays looking glowy, but still keeps my makeup intact.

For highlighter, I've been reaching a lot for the NOTO Botanics Hydra Highlight*. This also blends beautifully into the skin and adds a natural glow. Because the Skin Glowing Balm already makes my skin pretty dewy, I've found that this looks nicer than my normal I-can-see-you-from-space highlighters. The ULTIMATE dewy skin product is the Pixi Glow Mist*. This magical bottle is filled with a mix of 13 oils, aloe vera, and fruit extracts and sprays on in a super-fine mist. This somehow manages to both set my makeup and make it look dewy, never greasy (don't ask me how, it's magic for sure). Keep an eye out for another post about this and some other Pixi products.

I've gone back to using my Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks because they're easy to use and last all day long. My two favourite shades are Sunlight Gold for a bright inner-corner and Goldstone for all over the lid. Skipping lip products, I've just been layering on my beloved Glossier Coconut Balm dot Com. This flavour is divine and keeps my lips super hydrated.
