Whether your skin tells the tale of the sleepless nights and stressful days you’ve had, or it’s just the weather that’s to be blamed, dull skin is a real problem and extremely annoying to deal with. While you eat right, hydrate and work out regularly to get the natural glow back, you’d be glad to know that makeup can help you cover up that dullness and have you glowing for the gods.
The only thing you have to do it play up that makeup brush (aka magic wand), use the right products and you can have a glowing complexion and gorgeous-looking skin in no time. Let us share a makeup routine with you that helps fight dullness and will make you look radiant as ever.

- Step 02: Moisturise
- Step 03: Pick a hydrating foundation
- Step 04: Highlight
- Step 05: Finish with a blush
Step 01: Rub an ice cube
Here’s what an ice cube does to your skin - It shrinks pores, controls sweat glands (no makeup melting off) and the best of all, gives you an instant glow. For a smooth and glow-from-within look, glide an ice cube on cleansed face before you start with your makeup.
Step 02: Moisturise
This one’s a no brainer. Dry and dehydrated skin can result in patchy base makeup while well moisturised skin helps your makeup to glide on smoothly, giving you a picture-perfect finish. You don’t want your foundation to look flaky, do you? Prep your skin with some serum and moisturiser before applying foundation to get plump and glowy skin.
Step 03: Pick a hydrating foundation
The right foundation can make all the difference, really. Using a foundation that is formulated with glow-boosting ingredients like natural oil or hydrating skin acids like hyaluronic acid can make your skin look radiant and flawless. So pick a foundation that comes with extra benefits to get a glowing complexion.
Step 04: Highlight
A healthy dose of highlighter can help lighten up your face and hide dullness like it was never there. After you’ve blended your foundation, simply dab some highlighter on the highest points of your face to instantly add a glazed effect to your look.
Step 05: Finish with a blush
The easiest and quickest way to brighten up your face is…you guessed it right, buffing some rosy blusher on. Blush can make your skin look fresh, healthy and radiant. Pick a pink or peachy blush and pack it on the apples of your cheek for a pretty and bright complexion.
