Top Glowy Makeup Bases

I've missed my lovely beauty blog and readers!
So I asked my Instastory followers to suggest what they would love to see on the beauty blog this week, and Top Glowy Makeup Bases won the vote.


Its the perfect time of year to prep our skin and switch up our makeup bags for the summer months (Download your Summer Makeup Bag Revamp)
Glowing skin is not oily, or overusing highlighting powders. Its a natural, dewy radiance that our skin, makeup and finish can give out in natural daylight.
It gives out a healthy glow that we all want our skin to have on a regular basis and in summer months it just makes us look healthy, happy and fresh.
But still make Vitamin C and Water your best friend. (Its the homework that helps)
Look into your skincare background and choose skin products to help your get a natural glow as well as eating healthy foods that feed your skin goodness!

I have my top 4 products to achieve different finishes to your Glowy Skin!
These are all bases that are to be applied either;
- Mixed with your daily moisturiser
- Used on top of your mosturiser
- Before your foundation!
- Mixed with your foundation (depending on formula - best with light-medium liquid coverage)

Mac Strobe Liquid
A famous 'prep & prime' product that MAC now have in multiple shade, they now also have a body edition.
The glow that the Strobe liquids give out have an undertone colour and a glow to die for.
If you don't use foundation, use this alone and its subtle enough to give you that healthy glowing look.

Iconic Illuminator
This glow base is much more intense, I apply this on my clients before foundation so that the foundation can dilute this glow and shine through naturally.
You will look like tin-man when you apply this, but if its too much glow, use this on the high points of the face so that you can target where you want your glow to come from.
Then apply your foundations and see how natural this actually finishes.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Filter
Perfect for all skin types! Multiple shaded product, as this glow base does come with a light coverage to even out the skin tone and add a natural glow.
This would be a top product for the summer months as all you need to do is your skincare and spread the Hollywood Filter all over the face. DONE

Becca Backlight
THE glow base that is so universal and naturally enhancing, is the perfect 'primer' layer in your base routine. This not only adds glow but holds makeup on and evens the skin, to help give you that naturally flawless finish. Suitable for applications day or night!


Im just going to sneak this glowing product in too…
Nars Multiple Stick - in 'Copacabana'
This is best for after makeup to pop onto your highpoints of the face - just like a cream highlighter but more subtle to give a more naturally glowed look.
I love applying this with fingers as it blends in perfectly on top of your makeup.

Now its time you add some GLOW to your face and give your skin that healthy finish with makeup or without.
