We all want a perfect, dewy facial complexion. And sometimes we achieve it. But everyone has those “off-weeks” when their face is freaking out due to stress, too much chocolate, hormones, or weather change.
So what do you do if you just entered in an off-week? You read this post, that’s what you do.
Here are 3 simple tricks to faking a gorgeous glow when your skin has decided to turn on you:
1. FOR YOUR FACE: “Mix one part tinted foundation with one part liquid illuminator,” says Tracy Brennan, owner of Kalologie, a beauty boutique in Los Angeles. We, of course, suggest using Mirabella since it’s the best in the business! We carry it at Posh, but when you’re in a pinch, any mixture of brands will do! Use freshly-washed fingertips to massage the mixture on your face. Brennan also says to “top it off with a dusting of a light-reflecting shimmer powder” as a finisher. The best kind? Try this Mirabella face highlighter/bronzer.
2. FOR YOUR LIPS + EYE BROWS: Make your lipgloss multitask for you! “Keep a pearly white lip gloss in your desk drawer to slick not only on your lips, but also on your brow bones and cheekbones as a quick-fix highlighter,” says Pati Dubroff, an L.A.-based celebrity makeup artist.
3. FOR YOUR BODY: “Look like a golden goddess by mixing liquid bronzer with a firming body cream, then massage it into your arms [and legs and whatever else!]. It’ll temporarily tighten your skin and give it a glow,” says Scarlett Messina, a Pennsylvania-based makeup artist. We would add that the firming body lotion is a must, since applying liquid bronzer all over would be a bit overpowering. The lotion will dilute the bronzer so it creates a subtle, sun-kissed glow instead of in-your-face orange! (There are small-sized and large-sized liquid bronzers available, depending on how often you use it). And if you’re not into the heavy-feel, just use a fatter makeup brush and lightly bronze with Mirabella’s mineral bronzer.
There you go–you’ll be glowier than a pregnant woman even when your skin is secretly angry. Now head out this weekend and be your dewiest self!
