How To Get The Perfect Glowing Skin

A beautiful glowing skin is an image of perfection. It shows that the skin is well nourished, healty and moisturized. But this can also be attained by using the right kind of makeup products.

There are different kinds of foundations available in the market. Foundations with matte finish and also the ones which claim to give a dewy finish. But sometimes the dewy finish of the foundations isn't enough to get the perfect glowy finish you need to use shimmery highlighters.

I have heard people often complain about when they use shimmer products, they dont get their desired flawless glowy look. The reason is that they are not using the correct shade of highligter.

If you are buying a highlighting product for the purpose of creating a glowy finish all over and not just to highlight the cheek bones, then there are a few thing you have to keep in mind.
 First of all you have to know the undertones of your skin and the shade of the highlighter should be according to your undertones. If you have golden undertones, then a golden highligther would be the most suitable and will make your skin look naturally glowy. Similarly if you have olive undertones, you should apply an olivey gold highligther. If you have pink undertones then the best one for you would be a light rosegold hightlighter. If you are not sure of your undertones, try to ask a makeup assisstant to assess it for you. If not then grab several different shades of highlighters from pale pinks, off whites, pale golds to olive, rosegolds and try different shades and see which highlighter appears to be the most natural on your skin.

The second most important thing to remember is that the highlighter should have a satin to shimmer finish and not any glitter particles in it. Use a glittery highlighter only if you are going for that kind of look. But if you want to look naturally glowy then there should be no glitter particles in the product otherwise you would end up looking like a glitterball.

There are many different types of highlighting products available in the market, they could be liquid, cream or powder. You just have to find out which one you are most comfortable with, and which one is best suited to your skin tone and you will have the perfect glowy skin!
