For me, matte skin isn't what I am after! My skin type is normal/dry so I am always trying to get glowing skin rather than dull dryness. I have tried a few different things from creams to primers to foundations and concealers, I have made my way through a few products!
Not matter what make up products i use, nothing works as well without a good skin care routine. Liz Earle hot cloth routine proving the best so far!
The ones I have found work really well and I am more than happy with the results are...
Eyeko Beauty Cream
I have blogged about this before and really cant fault it. I use this under my foundation as a moisturiser/primer and it brightens my face without looking like a shiny disco ball! I really don't have anything bad to say about this! My first pot was used every single day and lasted e over 6 months and for £5 its an absolute bargain!
No matter how glowing I got my skin, it just wasn't complete without my eyes getting some brightening too. I have found this to be the best for me. Brightening that lasts all day and doesn't go cakey, super blendable too only a tiny amount is needed! £18.50 for a pot. I have had mine for 3 months ish and haven't even dented it yet!
Dream Satin Liquid
This is a new found love for me! I thought my Revlon color stay was my fav but this has pushed it out of the ring! This gives me a glow whilst giving me a great coverage and outlasting Revlon! I am not sure how much this retails for, defo under £10. New love!
MAC MSF Natural
I haven't needed to use this yet with the dream satin but it boost the glow with my Revlon and sets my foundation for the day. I buff it into my T zone.
This is a great bronze tone for me which gives me a colour that my natural tan would be. I use this in the usual contour areas with a light touch to give that sun kissed glow!
MeMeMe Beat the Blues
In my opinion, this is an exact dupe for Benefits Moon Beam and they also do a High Beam dupe too! If I want that extra glow, I will use this to highlight as it gives a bronzey glow. You can even put a few drops in your foundation.
Looking back at the products it seems like I will end up like a shiny face but less is more girls!
A few of my products for my never ending love for glowing skin!
