Do you want glowing and radiant skin for this festive season? An effective way to get glowing skin over time is by following a healthy diet, lifestyle and skincare regime. However, if you’re looking for a quick fix and instant boost of radiance, it’s time to reach out for your makeup bag. Always remember that getting radiant skin for your party makeup is not just about applying shimmery highlighter all over your face. What your makeup needs to do is add radiance to your complexion and reflect light on the correct places to give your face a sun-kissed glow.
From eye shadow to lip color, using the right party makeup products in the right places can help you get radiant looking skin. Follow our expert tips below to get a luminous and dewy look using makeup –
Basics of Base
Picking the right base makeup – foundation and concealer is key. You need a hydrating base that will not just moisturize your skin but also add an illuminating sheen to it. Add a few drops of illuminator to your moisturizer or foundation to give you that all over glow.
Use Shimmery Nude Eyeshadow
For your eyes, choose a shimmery shade which is close to your natural complexion, but a few shades lighter. Apply this all over your eyelids to neutralize darker tones and reflect more light off your face. While powder eye shadow will certainly do the trick, you can also go for a cream shadow with a pearly sheen. Another great trick to brighten your eyes is by adding shimmer to the corner of your eyes.

Use Bronzer To Contour
Bronzer is a very effective way of adding radiance and a touch of warmth. To get the best results, apply bronzer on your cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, and chin. The main idea here is to create a natural sun-kissed look, so blend the bronzer out in a circular motion to ensure that the effect is ultra natural. If you’re fair skinned and prefer cooler tones, you can use a pinkish or silver highlighter instead of bronzer.

Don’t Forget Highlighter!
The best place to apply this shimmery product is on your brow bone, bow of the lips, inner corner of the eye and your cheekbones. That’s where you’ll attract the light to your face. And after you’re done your eye makeup, dab a bit of highlighter in the center of your lids to open up your eyes.
Thought serum was for skincare only? Well think again, because you can use an oil based serum as a finishing touch to give your face a bit of extra shine along with nourishment and hydration. Just make sure to dab a small amount strategically so you get your glow on while doing your skin a major favor in the process.
