Glowy model inspired makeup look
Model inspired makeup has been dominating my Instagram feed and TikTok 'for you' page for quite a while now, I love the laid back, 'model off-duty', effortless feel to it and how it compliments every skin tone. It's also surprisingly easy to do as well and doesn't require that many specific products to achieve that natural ethereal glow.
So today I thought I'd show you how you can get the glowy glass-like skin look that I wear for my everyday makeup.
Keep reading to see how I did this look:
The products I used are:
• Elizabeth Arden Great 8 Daily Defense Moisturizer (SPF 35) £36.00
• Garnier Skin Active BB cream (shade light) £9.99
• Maybelline Fit Me concealer (shade 15) £5.99
• Chanel Soleil Tan £42.00
• Lipstick Queen Frog Prince lipstick £22.00 (used as a cream blush as the colour adapts to the perfect colour for your skintone)
• Laura Mercier Translucent Powder £32.00
• Benefit Gimme Brow (shade 4.5) £22.50
• MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush (shade Peachtwist) £20.00
• Benefit 24-HR brow setter clear brow gel £22.50
• Mario Badescu Rose Water spray £11.00 (used as setting spray to have a glowy base)
• Sleek Black Utopia mascara £8.99
• Sleek Copperplate Highlighting Palette £9.99
It's important to note that you can totally do this look without a BB cream or foundation as your base, this will give an even more natural look, but I will say that it is essential to wear an SPF under your makeup if you want to have glowy skin into your lates 30s.
What's very important in achieving model inspired makeup, is using a concealer to highlight the high points of your face to have a lifting effect and imitate a model's high cheekbones regardless of your face shape. You will see this on the 4th slide of the look below.
I also think blush is what really brings this look to life as it gives you a radiant and rosy cheeked glow which makes you look very healthy and youthful; I opt for a cream blush as it appears more natural on the skin however you can also use a sheer shimmery powder blush on the top of that to ensure it stays put. I chose to use the Frog Prince lipstick by Lipstick Queen as a blush because the colour adapts to your skin tone to produce a perfect colour suited to you.
The blush rule also applies to bronzer as well, I love a cream bronzer in the summer time it makes to look so sun kissed and glowy, in this look I used Chanel's Soleil Tan bronzer which lasts for ages, I bought mine over a year ago and I've only just hit pan!
Here's a slideshow of the process of creating this makeup look, I'd say it is very easy to follow and doesn't require many tools.
