Ok, confession time. I am a lazy beauty addict. As in, if a beauty routine is going to take me more than 5 minutes, I’m out. So when skin glazing hit the world of beauty trends this last year, you know I was first in line to get on board.
For the uninitiated, skin glazing is the ultimate in effortless, lit-from-within, glowing beauty. And best of all, it doesn’t involve contouring, caking on layer upon layer of makeup, sparkly pearlescent highlighters, or an hour of primping. It’s basically the anti-makeup.. and guess what? You leave the house looking healthy, glowing, youthful, effortless, and decidedly UN-Kardashian.
Skin glazing is a simple, 2-3 step process:
After cleansing and toning your skin, spritz with a natural face mist
While skin is still wet, mix your moisturizer (preferably one with SPF) with an awesome natural face oil and press firmly onto your skin (don’t rub!)
For added dewiness, add another spritz of your face mist before heading out.
Et voila. You’re done. No makeup, no highlighters, just gorgeous, glowing, healthy skin. Amazing, right? I haven’t worn a spot of makeup on my face (except for mascara, cuz girl you know I’m never leaving the house without that) in weeks.
The key to this magical formula, however, is a really good face oil. Since you’re wearing so few products on your face, your face oil should do double (or triple!) duty as a antioxidant serum, anti-aging hydrator, and mega glow-inducer. Luckily for us all, I’ve found just the thing!
