Glow Girl: 3 Of The Best Products For Glowing Skin

by Melanie Morris
17th May 2016

Make-up artist Kim O?Sullivan reveals the key products to get her signature glowing skin.

MAC Lustre Drops, €23

Delivers the sort of radiance that can be compared to a day in the sun, offering a lightweight, sheer, natural-looking highlight with a luminous, shimmering finish. The drops are water-resistant, so they’re perfect for summer holidays or the festival season. Use directly from the bottle, tapping on to highlight cheekbones, bridge of the nose, or highbrow area. Or mix them with foundation to create a luminous finish and transform a matte foundation into a more lustrous formula. Also beautiful mixed in with moisturiser for added shine on shoulders and d?collet?.




Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop, €38

A finely milled powder that gives incredible glow to the skin without a trace of glitter – like soft focus lighting in a compact. Delivers luminosity in any light, and the perfect foil for dullness and signs of fatigue. Dust over the high point of cheekbones, or apply a light layer using a fan brush all over your face for a beautiful, diffused finish. Also beautiful as a brow bone highlight or on the inner tear duct to give the eyes an extra lift and brightness to the area.

Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup Bi-Phase Elixir SPF 30, €46

The light, silky formula offers instant and lasting glow thanks to pigment-infused oils which make the texture comfortable, easy to apply and nourishing for women with drier skin. The result: a dreamy, dewy, fresh-faced complexion that’s so lightweight, it will both look and feel like you’ve nothing on, and also has a good SPF. Note that shades are darker than their other Armani counterparts, so test before you buy.ARMANI_MAESTRO_GLOW_BIPHASE_RVB_150dpi-55 copy
