This makeup look is so gorge.
To be honest, I’ve been obsessed with all thing dewy, glowy and glossy when it comes to beauty trends. If we had to write one Korean beauty trend that has taken over the skincare world by storm, glass skin easily takes that top spot. And it makes perfect sense. Everyone loves crystal clear and healthy-looking skin, and the glass skin trend does just that.
Glass skin is meant to evoke the idea of a crystal clear piece of glass, meaning it’s all about skin that looks completely clear. Poreless, baby-soft, dewy skin is the ultimate goal. Ahead, you can read a simple step by step guide to attaining that flawless base.
STEP 1: START WITH A GENTLE CLEANSER
PRO-TIP: Look for a cleanser that can help brighten the appearance of your complexion.
STEP 2: EXFOLIATE WITH A FACE SCRUB
PRO-TIP: if you’ve got dry skin, choose a nourishing scrub. If you tend to get blackheads, pick a scrub formulated to deeply penetrate pores, and so on.
STEP 3: REACH FOR A SHEET MASK
PRO-TIP: One of our favourite ways to face mask, this essential deeply penetrates the skin to boost moisture and brightness.
STEP 4: USE A HYDRATING TONER
PRO-TIP: The key is to use a hydrating offering that’s free of alcohol.
STEP 5: APPLY A HYDRATING SERUM
PRO-TIP: For Korean glass skin, in particular, hyaluronic acid is an amazing ingredient to look out for in serum because it’s often found in intensely hydrating formulas.
STEP 6: LAYER ON A LIGHTWEIGHT MOISTURIZER
PRO-TIP: Just like the rest of the products, choose a moisturizer based on your skin type and concerns.
STEP 7: APPLY YOUR FOUNDATION
PRO-TIP: To really ensure a glowing, glass-like final look, use a medium-coverage foundation that’s moisturizing and doesn’t have a matte finish.
STEP 8: APPLY A HIGHLIGHTING LOTION
PRO-TIP: Take a tad of the lotion onto your fingertips and massage it onto your skin, paying close attention to your cheekbones and the tip of your nose.
STEP 9: ADD A FINAL LAYER OF TARGETED GLOW
PRO-TIP: You’re almost done! Last but not least, apply a final layer of a glow-boosting highlighter – Apply it onto the top of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, the centre of your forehead, and cupid’s bow.
STEP 10: COMPLETE YOUR GLASS SKIN LOOK.
PRO-TIP: Keep your eyes subtle, perfect your arches, gives your cheeks some colour and pair it with glossy lips. Glossy lips are the perfect complement to glowing skin. Go for a gloss with a shiny but not sticky finish.
