With glowing skin being our most asked about makeup look, we thought we would go over our top products to achieve that glowy, summer look all year round. Check out below our top products from brands such as Designer Brands, Pixi, Raww and more.
Prep Your Skin
To create a glowy and dewy makeup look, start off by cleansing your face, to remove any dirt or left over makeup. A cleanser such as Raww cosmetics Purify me gentle cleanser is perfect as it is a calming cleanser and is supercharged with superfoods. It is super charged with Wild Berry harvest concentration and provides maximum hydration while brightening the skin, with a boost of Vitamin C from Kakadu plum. This will leave your skin ready for makeup application.
One of the best ways to get quick hydration, is through a sheet mask. Sheet masks such as Designer Brands Cosmetics Lift and Glow Glutathione Deluxe Sheet Mask will plump your skin and leave it with a healthy looking glow. For best results, pop on the mask for 10-15 minutes and then massage any remaining serum into the skin.
Finish your skincare routine with a moisturiser, such as Sukin Facial Moisturiser to soften the skin and lock in moisture. This will leave your skin feeling nourished, smooth and healthy. Sukin's moisturiser contains rose-hip, avocado, sesame seed and jojoba oils, as well as aloe vera to refresh the skin and wheat germ and vitamin E to improve the texture.
Ace The Base
First step in your makeup routine should be to apply a primer. To achieve glowing skin we recommend using a glowing primer such as the Natio bronze glow perfecting primer. This silky priming serum bathes skin in a delicate veil of flattering bronze as it lightly evens out the complexion and provides a smooth and long wearing base for foundation.
For a fresh-faced, flawless and dewy finish, Designer Brands Luminous Hydrating Foundation is the ultimate foundation. Enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins and nutrients, this foundation will deeply hydrate and nourish the skin. As it is toxin free, it won't clog pores, cling to dry patches or irritate sensitive skin. Using a buffing brush, brush into skin to create an air brushed base.
Once you have applied your foundation, using a correction concentrate, can remove the dark circles around your eyes, without having to be heavy handed on the concealer. A product such as the PIXI correction concentrate Blends seamlessly into the skin while instantly erasing stubborn darkness. By using a correction concentrate, it eliminates the need for excessive concealer which can result in cakey and creased makeup.
Once you have eliminated some of those stubborn dark circles around your eyes, you can go in with a concealer to create natural coverage and brightness. Designer brands glow this way illuminating concealer is creamy and lightweight which is perfect for spot concealing and highlighting the face where necessary.

Now that your base is done, you can dab a glowy highlighter onto your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, along your brow bone and on your cupid’s bow. To make your eyes look bright and wide-awake, you could even pop a little highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes. The Designer Brands Liquid Gold Jelly Highlighter has an intensely glowy formula and glides on easily. Plus, it’s full of Vitamin E to hydrate your skin all day.
