How To: Get Glowing Model Skin

I originally filmed this video in March 2011, but I had to take it down because of issues with the intro. I was annoyed because it had been my most viewed video EVER, but when I was in LA I found the original video file in my MacBook backup folder! So here it is, re-edited and slightly more succinct than it was to begin with – some little improvements made here and there, some of the ‘waffle’ cut out, some of the product info links updated.

Those of you who saw it the first time around might want to have a look for old time’s sake – you can even go back to the original post if you want! It can be seen here: How I Get Glowing Model Skin.

Newer readers have got a real treat – I love this video. I love dewy, glowy products that make skin look incredible without being glittery or brash, I love the creamy and light textures of all of the products used. It’s the most common ‘look’ requested on fashion  and beauty shoots – clients always want models’ skin to look impossibly healthy but completely natural. A ‘glow from within’ rather than some shimmer slapped on the surface!

So here are some gorgeous bits and pieces ready to be layered up, worn alone, dabbed along the cheekbones or mixed in with moisturisers. Further product details can be found by clicking the relevant link below the video pane. Enjoy!
