How to fake a natural glow using makeup

Naturally glowing and healthy skin is something we all desire. However, pollution, UV rays and other toxins in the environment rob your skin of its natural glow and dull your complexion. While skincare products work to give you a flawless complexion, they take time (read: weeks or months) to show visible results. But worry not; you can always use makeup to fake that natural glow.

With a few makeup tricks and tips, you can easily achieve that healthy looking natural glow. Here are a few quick and simple tricks to get a glowy complexion.


Mix facial oil with foundation

Before applying foundation to your face, mix it with a few drops of facial oil. This will not only give you a perfectly flawless base but will also impart a healthy glow. Oils like argan, squalane, marula, etc., work well for all skin types. Alternatively, you can opt for an oil-based foundation like the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation, which blends easily into the skin to give it a radiant and dewy look.


Apply cream blush

Instead of powder blush, which tends to give a splotchy look, try using a cream blush. Take a small amount on your fingertips and dab on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow. The warmth of your hands will ensure the formula melts into your skin seamlessly for a natural finish.

Applying a highlighter is a sure-shot way of faking a natural glow. Dab some highlighter on the top of your cheekbones, brow bones and cupid’s bow using your fingertips. The Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit is perfect to work with as it blends easily and gives the perfect shine.
