While the past few years saw a multitude of looks with matte skin, full coverage and heavily chiselled features, 2018 is all about healthy looking skin that (seemingly) glows from within. Of course, either you glow from within, or there’s always makeup!

Highlighting, especially in gold this year will be huge when it comes to makeup trends, and it tends to accompany contouring. Contour goes on first and then you highlight the tops of your cheekbones, the brow bone, bridge of your nose and the cupid’s bow. In strobing, you do all the face highlighter steps, without the contouring. The idea is: strategic placement of light illuminating product.
Sport Gold on your nails
To begin with, it is extremely imperative to get a good base because any illuminating product has a tendency to make skin texture look even more prominent. These days you have the choice of highlighters, illuminating creams, strobe creams, shimmer palettes and what not.
Depending on your skin type, you will definitely find one which will suit your needs be it a cream highlight or powder or liquid.
While makeup is magical, beautiful and oh-so-much fun, let’s not forget that great skin is the best foundation for glowy looks, and highlighters show up even better on healthy skin. Drinking lots of water, eating green leafy vegetables and taking an Omega 3 supplement (with your doctor’s consultation of course) can go a long way in creating skin that glows from within. If acne is what’s troubling you, it would be a good idea to see a dermatologist. Once your skin is great, glowy looks will be the best weapon in your arsenal.
Go on. Be Golden!
