How to get Glowy Skin with Makeup

Time to snap shut your bronzer and bring out the winter glow getters. The winter weather can take it's toll on our skin and can leave it looking tired. These make up bits are the perfect pick-me-ups for the colder months. 

Lilly Lolo Honey Glow Shimmer Stripes* £19.99
This compact from Lily Lolo is made up of five stripes of soft colour, ranging from a gorgeous dusky rose to a lovely rose gold. The multi-tonal highlighter makes it perfect for custom creating a shade to suit your skintone perfectly or you could use the shades individually. Not only does this add some subtle shimmer to cheeks, you can also use this as eyeshadow. When swirled together the shades collide to create a shimmery pink cocktail with golden undertones. The shades are quite pigmented but it still creates a subtle glow - perfect for winter blues! This product is ideal for those with sensitive skin as it's fragrance and talc free.

L'oreal Lumi Magique Primer £9.99
This is a new addition to my make up bag. I was sold by it's claim to give skin a "lit from within glow". The slim bottle with pump makes it easy to dispense. The pearly white primer is similar to Benefits High Beam, maybe a drugstore dupe? Its thin texture blends into the skin easily leaving a natural, healthy glow. I like to mix it with No7's Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser.

No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser £11.50
The lightweight, creamy texture of this tinted moisturiser creates a dewy finish once applied. 5 star UVA protection and SPF 15 means your skin is protected from the sun and environment. The Vitamin A and E helps to moisture skin, making this great for those with drier complexions. This is great if you're in a rush, skip moisturiser and just pop this on!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer £5.99
This lightweight concealer has an almost gel texture. I think this would be great for those suffering from dry skin as it's quite hydrating. What I love most about this is the fresh natural finish it gives whilst brightening up skin - perfect for under eye circles!

L'oreal Universal Lip Glow £8.49
A unique lipstick which changes colour to the heat and moisture of your lips to create your own bespoke lipstick shade! Your tailor-made colour is revealed gradually resulting in a just-bitten, pink stained look with a dewy finish. This wonder balm completes the glowy skin look, i do think it's a little over-priced though.

I love glowy skin so i'm reaching for these beauties everyday! What product do you use for a radiant complexion? 


  1. Catrice makes as well an universal lip glow, I think theirs is cheaper! I have both of them and I like the Catrice one more :)

  2. Lovely products! Really want to try that primer, seems like everyone's raving about it :)

  3. The L'oreal Universal Lip Glow sounds great - I have never seen this before.
    I really like having a glowing look without wearing too much makeup.
