My Go-To Glowing Face Routine


I am all about the glow year round. But nothing looks more natural and healthy than a radiant face in the summer time! These are the products I have been loving to use to achieve that look.


1. Hydrate- To create a dewy-fresh look, moisturizing the skin is the most important step! I love to lather on my regular facial lotion and then I will apply my Hangover RX from Too Faced. It is one of my all time favorite products and it smells like heaven

2. Base- Next I apply either my Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream or Laura Geller Baked Liquid Foundation.  They both give a very natural satin finish on the skin which I love. To apply these I have been using my Stippling Brush from Real Techniques which gives a gorgeous, natural looking application because of the dual-fibers. 


3. Add Definition- I recently added the NYX Conceal.Correct. Contour. Palette to my routine and I have been really enjoying it. I use the bottom yellow-toned cream to highlight under my eyes, on my forehead and chin. On top of that I will add a bit of my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Then I will take the contour shade (which is a perfect neutral brown for me) and carve out my cheekbones and along my hairline. These blend out like a dream with my BeautyBlender and give me a natural highlight and contour. 



4. Pop of color- Before moving on to powder products I will finish off my cream routine with a cream blush and highlight. I have been reaching a lot for my MAC Casual Colour in For Your Amusement.  I apply that on the apples of my cheeks and blend it back with my ELF Small Stipple Brush. 

Then I will dab a bit of the NYX Liquid Illuminator in Gleam to the tops of my cheekbones.



5. Top it off- Lastly, I will set the cream products. For bronzer my all-time favorite at the moment is Carry-On by ColourPop. I take it on my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and lightly go over the cream contour to darken it up a bit. 

I have been setting my under-eye highlight with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Powder in Banana (not pictured above) using my ELF Small Tapered Brush.

Lastly for my favorite part...the highlight! Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Highlight in Golden Honey is a highlight sent from the heavens. I love the golden glow it gives off and it looks so gorgeous on the skin. I pretty much douse myself in this by applying it to the tops of my cheekbones, forehead, chin, cupids bow and inner corners of my eyes. 



What are some of your go-to face products?
