The Glowing Skin “Makeup Dream Team”…

ruth crilly model beauty blogger

There were quite a few people asking about my skin in my latest videos, so I thought I’d quickly run through the makeup I had on. It was a bit of a glowing skin “Dream Team” to be quite honest – all of the below photographs were taken with just natural daylight (they usually are, if it’s a natural makeup look) and you can see that there’s a real bit of luminosity going on.

I started with the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer (find it here – I know I keep banging on and on about it, but it’s bloody brilliant!) and then I went in with Max Factor’s Skin Luminizer Foundation (here) over the top, just a very light buffing in as it’s quite comprehensive coverage and I find I don’t need too much of it. That foundation is quite glowy in itself, so paired with the primer it was all rather luminous!

More nude makeup finds…

I finished off with Chanel Les Beiges in shade 30 (online here) to add a very, very light healthy sunkiss (could also have used my newly-found Guerlain Joli Teint for this) and a touch of soft contour.

Skin before and afters, in case you’d like to have a closer look:

I love how the makeup has taken away shine, but added glow. If that makes any sense? There’s just a really lovely healthiness to the look – a “real skin” effect. What do you think? I should point out that in the very top picture I also have some mascara on and I think that I used some Gimme Brow stuff, too (watch my demo here), but I have been filming so much recently (stockpiling so that I can actually have some maternity leave!) that I keep forgetting exactly what I’ve used…
