The first step to achieving a perfect contour is prepping your face. Apply a small amount of Frankie Rose’s Prime Addiction and let it set for a minute or two. Using a beauty.blender sponge, apply your favorite Frankie Rose foundation and go back to cover any blemishes with your favorite Frankie Rose concealer. Once you’re done prepping your face, it’s time to get that Instagram-worthy contour!

Glow Like a Goddess With Our Summer Favorites

Getting a beautiful bronzed glow for the summer doesn’t mean you have to compromise your skin and spend hours under the sun. As a matter of fact, you don’t need to spend any time under the sun at all! If you’re looking to bronze up this summer without a burn, then you’ll need some of our favorite products to get that golden goddess look.

The first step to getting a bronzed look is creating a smooth base. We used Smashbox’s Studio Skin Foundation to create our summer makeup look. This buildable foundation not only covers imperfections, but also hydrates the skin for a natural-looking, demi-matte finish.  To conceal the under eye area and other problem areas, we chose bareMinerals’ bareSkin concealer for its silky smooth finish. High-definition mineral optics in the formula work to smooth out imperfections and create a brightened, luminous appearance. Achieving the ultimate golden glow requires some contouring to enhance the facial features and warm up the face naturally. For our look, we used Smashbox’s Contour Kit in Deep. To highlight, we went the warmer route and chose Laura Geller’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey. This sheer powder is caramel honey colored and infuses the skin with that warm, summer-like glow.

Keep Your Skin Glowing in Dry, Cold Weather

When it's dry and windy out, your skin can lose its luminous glow. You may notice your regular makeup flaking or looking patchy and heavy on your face. If you're already taking preventative steps to keep your skin from becoming dehydrated, you're on the right track. If you want your makeup to look gorgeous and dewy, then consider the following tips for a winter glow. 

1. Steer clear of matte finish foundation products: To create a lovely, dewy canvas, choose a foundation that is sheer or medium coverage. Dr. Perricone's No Foundation Foundation is one of my favorite products to recommend for winter skin because it gives a beautiful radiance with a dewy finish. Redness and blotchiness is immediately blurred away for a natural look you'll love. It also contains a non-chemical SPF 30, which is always a plus.

2. Seek the help of highlighter: Get a healthy-looking glow with the help of a liquid luminizer. Stila's All Over Shimmer is a must-have for those winter skin blues. It immediately enhances the look of your skin with soft-focus pigments. Wear this product alone or mix it into your foundation or moisturizer for an instant brightening effect.

3. Go easy under your eyes: One of the places we notice dryness in our skin is right under our eyes. If you're battling dryness and crepiness, you'll want to use a good eye cream. Aside from doing that, you'll also want to minimize the use of heavy under eye concealers. The Stroke of Light Eye Brighteners from bareMinerals are great to use during this time of the year because they provide instant radiance without drawing attention to fine lines and wrinkles.
