Three simple ways to brighten your complexion

The highlight of every cosmetic collection, glow-giving dew drops, skin tints and highlighters effortlessly enliven dull complexions to deliver a radiant and healthy flush. So, how exactly can you get that glow without the assistance of ‘Gingham’ or warmth of ‘Valencia’, here’s how…

For barely there make up looks, we suggest adding Supergoop!’s Glow Stick SPF 50 to the end of your skin care routine to add unrivalled glow to your natural look. Made for the face, neck and shoulders (though suitable for use wherever else you fancy), this formula gives a dewy finish and won’t irritate dry skin. The totally invisible formula protects and provides a natural glow, but you needn’t worry about a chalky cast or an oily sheen – just a beautiful, dewy, radiant finish.

Our go-to make up range just went sheer, Huda Beauty’s GloWish Multidew Skin Tint harnesses skin-loving ingredients to plump and brighten while near-sheer pigments lend a luminous, dewy finish. As well as achieving a second-skin finish, it’s infused with reflective pearl pigments that naturally catch the light for a flattering glow. Its credentials don’t end there, it’s designed to be water-, sweat- and transfer-proof so you can maintain a fresh-faced finish no matter what life throws your way.

If you crave the gorgeous ‘golden hour’ glow, emulate that photo-worthy radiance with Vieve’s Skin Dew, it’s designed to deliver a glossy veil to wherever you might fancy; fit for your face and body, this liquid highlighter is crafted from good-to-skin ingredients to achieve a natural, bouncy finish that complements its golden glow.
