On Trend: Natural Glowy Look with Estee Lauder!













Sometimes I do feel like wearing a minimal make-up look, and during the summer especially when I have a nice tan going this is the look I enjoy wearing most, because it showcases a healthy glowy skin with natural looking make-up, which is one of the SS13 beauty trends... I had a bad skin period few weeks ago when I started trying a bunch of foundations and skincare and things got out of control with my combo/oily skin type and I had a bit of a break-out situation again... So I decided to lay-low and just stick to the new skincare range I've been trying, it's by SkinCeuticals and is specifically designed for acne prone skin and it seems to have worked wonderfully, I will be writing a full review soon! 

But meanwhile having managed to get my skin to look lovely I've been now using the beautiful Dr.Jart+ BB cream... I just love it, for a full review read my previous blog post or click here! So since my skin is looking lovely and glowy I just felt like wearing very natural make-up... On the eyes I applied Estee Lauder new cream eyeshadow Stay-on Shadow Paint in 01 Chained, a beautiful antique gold but in a natural way... It's a super flattering shade, perfect for this type of look... Then to add some dimension I decided to use a MAC product I forgot I had yet used to love when I first got it... It's MAC Shadestick in Sharkskin, a shimmery gunmetal... The way I apply it is by using an angled brush, the Shadestick is also great for smudging, not the most long-lasting eyeliner but it's perfect for a soft definition and you can use it as an eyeshadow as well...

When it comes to a glowy natural beauty look you need to also highlight your face, I forgot to include the highlighter in the pic but I used the gorgeous bareMinerals Ready Luminizer in The Love Affair, which was a limited edition highlighter that came out before last Christmas... The way I apply highlighter when I want a beautiful luminosity is in a C shape above the highest point of the cheekbone and up to the temple close to the eyebrow, also over the brow-bone just under the brow, on the forehead just over the arch of the eyebrows, on the bridge of the nose [never the tip], cupid-bow and finally a light touch on the chin - that's some professional highlighting for you... To keep it natural make sure to use a good highlighter, stay away from glitters and too much shimmer...

And for lips I like using a nude pink with a little shimmer that brings a gentle freshness to your face but doesn't clash with the rest of the natural look... I particularly love this Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick in 66 Rose Amethyst, unfortunately it's been discontinued! But this lipstick has a bit of a history and is close to my heart so I use it sparingly...
