How To Fake Glowing Skin


I’m really big on making my skin look radiant and glowy, especially in the summertime. So, I was thinking I would share a few tips and what I use to achieve that glow.

Let’s start with my new beauty essential Pixi’s by Petra Glow Mist. Pixies glow mist has been formulated to create a glowing, luminous and smooth complexion. I spray this on before I put anything else on my face. The instant I spray it, I feel it instantly hydrate my skin and oh my goodness the scent is very lovely and just lifts my mood. I let it dry a bit and than I apply one of my top foundations, Maybelline Dream Wonder Foundation with my damp beauty blender. I went for this foundation because it is so light and doesn’t hide the glow I just created with my Pixi mist. Next up, I highlight the high points of my face, like my cheekbones, forehead and the bridge of my nose with L’Oreals MagicLumi. The magiclumi is a highlighting concealer, so it’s really perfect for your dark circles but I’m just using it to highlight. Last step more highlight! One of my favorite palettes, Tarte Cosmetics  Show Stopper Palette, has a beautiful little highlighter that catches the light so well and takes my glow that extra mile.

  • Emily Valentine Parr

    WOW you look stunning in those photos. I bought the dream fluid the other day and absolutely hated it…found it really drying and thick when applied despite only using a small amount. I might try your spritz and beauty blender trick and give it another go though.

    Love this post.
    please check my blog out

    • Thank you so much!! Yeah it is a lot dryer than most foundations but since I always use my glow mist it doesn’t dry out my skin, plus I have really oily skin. You could always try just using the dream foundation on oily parts of your face and using another foundation for everywhere else! 🙂 Off to check out your blog!:-)

      • Emily Valentine Parr

        Yeah it’s great that you found something that makes it less dry. It’s deffo an oily skin foundation. Yeah maybe just nose and chin for me but I still get dry bits even in my oily areas. If love to have oily skin a day just to see what it’s like to do my makeup differently. Xx

        • Oily skin is not so fun, always end up having a shiny face by the middle of the day. There are lots of products out there that moisturize the dry patches so your makeup sits on top of it nicer.

          • Emily Valentine Parr

            I can imagine it’s not but is like to try it out. My skin may be dry but I get a shiny nose all the time. Lame!

          • Yeah it would be neat to test out different skin types. My nose too!

  • Katrina Porter

    This is a super pretty look, perfect for summer, love it.
