Are you looking to create a dewy, glowing complexion with your makeup this Spring/ Summer? We thought we’d give you some easy tips on how to re-create
this flawless and timeless look.
These tips apply for all ages too, this look is not just for those in their 20's, it is one that is perfect for everyone.
The secret to this look is all about the highlighter.
1. Preparing your skin
Making sure you choose a quality moisturiser before applying your foundation is key to keeping your makeup in place all day. Tip - MiSMo’s ACE Vitamin C Serum is a perfect base to use if using Mineral Makeup. The secret to keeping mineral makeup in place all day is oil. The makeup adheres to oil. This is very important for dry skin types.
2. Mineral Foundation (Liquid Mineral or Mineral Powder Foundation)
Apply your foundation in downward strokes for a flawless finish. The more conventional method is to apply in circles but we find a better finish is achieved with the downward method. The hairs on your face grow in the same direction. Repeat the process using fine layers until you have achieved the desired coverage
3. Mineral Bronzer
Mineral Bronzer gives a wonderful sun kissed glow. Apply in an upward outward motion to the cheeks and blend. Also, lightly sweep over the areas of your face that naturally get the sun: down the nose, forehead and chin.
4. Mineral Highlighter – The secret weapon
Apply Mineral Highlighter just above cheekbones, under the eye and under the brow line. The effect will be stunning. Stroke with a light touch so you don't create lines. Remember it's all about blending to create a flawless finish. Tip - apply a little Highlighter just above the lip in the cupid's bow.
While red lips are still a popular choice, pastels are also currently on trend. Using a pale pink or peach to colour your lips will compliment the dewy, health glowing look you are trying to achieve. Tip – MiSMo’s Mineral Eyeshadow colour Rose Mocha can also double as a lipstick too. Just add a drop of water to it and apply straight to lips. The soft pink tones, will be a pretty addition to this look.
6. Lock it in with Mineral Veil
Mineral Veil is also called setting powder. It is a great help for those with oily skin. Mineral Veil will not only set your foundation for the day it will absorb oil that is secreted during the day. Mineral Veil is very translucent and may be used all over the face including your eye lids. Mineral Veil will not change the colours of your completed makeup. Lightly dust the Mineral Veil over your foundation.
