Glossy Skin & Peachy Hues

glossy skin 3

It’s no secret that I’m partial to a bit (a lot) of products that lend themselves to the whole radiant, fresh base look and although coral tones don’t really do anything for my complexion, I love a good peachy hue for my cheek and lip products. After rummaging through my stash, I rediscovered a few old favourites that really fit the glow getter bill…

Too faced have never really been a brand that I’ve turned to for bases but as someone who tries to stay away from hyped up products and instead likes to discover hidden gems, I picked up their beauty balm not too long ago and absolutely love it. The texture is that of a tinted moisturiser and not of a BB cream which the name suggests but it applies and looks like velvet on the skin and is completely unnoticeable. The Stila convertible colors? BESOTTED. For a cream blush lover, these are the cream of the crop with a habit ofย brightening the complexion like no other and ‘petunia’ is a beautiful, rosy pinky-peach shade.

Let me tell you ladies and gentlemen, a sunny day and leaving your makeup on the windowsill do not make for a pleasurable experience. Hence why my MAC cream color base in ‘hush’ looks a bit grubby but nevertheless, it’s what’s on the inside that counts! This highlighter is so glossy that it’s almost wet looking which I love for the summer because I find it to look the most natural as it is closest to the natural texture of skin. Bourjois’ ‘peach on the beach’ crayon was a Vivianna Does Makeup enabled purchase which is as easy on the eye as it is on the bank account (I picked this up from eBay for around ยฃ5). The colour pay off is quite intense so I like to dab and blend with my fingers to get a subtle hint of peach on my lips.

What are your favourite products for dewy, glossy looking skin? Always after suggestions and recommendations! Jess x

      1. Ha I know right! A bit of peach lipstick makes me feel all summery though, even if it’s grey & pouring with rain! I can’t wait for Autumn now so I can bring back the berry shades. xo
