Glowing Goddess!

It's February. This means that unless you're super rich and have lots of spare time you won't have seen the sun in about 6 months! I don't know about you, but I'm feeling pretty pasty, and my skin can often look dull over the long winter months. Now, I'm not a fan of faking a tan, especially not on a sunbed, so I have to succumb to the paleness that comes with an English winter. However paleness does not have to equally dullness, and this year I've found three amazing items of makeup that are helping me glow through winter!

The most important thing when trying to get that winter glow comes in the preparation stages. Take a look at My Winter Beauty Secrets  post to see my favourite exfoliators and body moisturiser (I'm still choosing my favourite facial moisturiser, so there isn't one on the list, but at the moment I'm using Garnier Dark Spot Corrector). Once I am fully exfoliated and moisturised I then apply my base makeup (Clinique foundation and concealer). After that, I apply the three below products to give me a lovely winter glow!

The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is truly amazing, and I can't believe I've waited so long to try it! It gives you a tiny bit of colour, whilst adding pearly shimmer to your face, radiating a subtle glow that makes you look healthy in the dull winter. I apply this with a thick blusher brush to my whole face. It also doubles up as gorgeous eyeshadows. The Benefit Moon Beam compliments the Shimmer Brick effect by adding extra light and shimmer to the top of your cheek bones and under your eyes. The Mac eyeshadow is just brilliant - this colour is beautiful neutral, enhancing your eyes without looking too obvious.

Why not try these shimmering products to give you that subtle glow this winter?

  1. Oh I've been eying the shimmer brick for some time now...very tempting! I use moon beam though and I have to say I love it!

  2. I just got the shimmer brick for Christmas but haven't used it yet - you've inspired me! :-)
