Are you tired of your dull and drab complexion? Do you want to make your face shine like a disco ball without breaking the bank on skincare products? Well, look no further because we’ve got the ultimate guide on how to make your face shiny with makeup.
Cleanse and Prep Your Skin
Before applying any makeup, it’s essential to have a clean slate. Start by cleansing your skin thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil or leftover residue from previous makeup applications. Follow up by using a gentle exfoliator, which will help slough away dead skin cells that can cause dullness.
Once you’ve completed these steps, apply a moisturizer specifically formulated for oily or combination skin types – this will keep your skin hydrated without appearing too greasy. You should also use an eye cream that contains caffeine or green tea extract as they both help reduce puffiness around the eyes.
Next step: primer time! A good primer is vital for achieving a long-lasting glowy finish; it creates an even canvas for foundation application while ensuring that all the hard work doesn’t slide off after just an hour in warm weather conditions. One of our favorite primers for this purpose is Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue Gel ($35), which helps mattify pores while keeping shine at bay.
Another great option is The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer (US$4) if you’re looking for something more budget-friendly. You should apply this product sparingly across your T-zone area – forehead, nose bridge & cheeks – where most women tend to get oily throughout the day.
Don’t Forget These!
- Place some lip balm.
- Brush eyebrows upwards
- Take care of those undereye bags
- Pick out appropriate brushes
- stipple brush
- powder brush
Foundations That Glow
For a glowy complexion, it’s essential to choose the right foundation. Instead of full-coverage matte foundations that will dull your face down even more, go for something light and dewy. Foundations like Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk ($85) or Nars Sheer Glow Foundation ($47) are both great options if you’re looking for that perfect ‘lit from within’ look.
Another fantastic choice is the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+. It provides coverage while also brightening and hydrating the skin throughout the day($38). The best way to apply these products is by using a stipple brush so that they blend seamlessly into your skin.
- Choose light/dewy foundations
- opt out fuller-coverage
- Go for ones w/ illuminating effects
- luminous silk foundation
- sheer glow foundation
Try Out Liquid Highlighters
Liquid highlighters have recently become very trendy, and it’s no surprise why! These sparkly gems can give you an intense shine without leaving you looking like Edward Cullen from Twilight. You can mix one or two drops of liquid highlighter in everything: moisturizer; primer; or just let it sit on top of your cheekbones after applying blush.
One fantastic option is Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector ($62), which comes in six different shades ranging from Opal (golden opal pearl) to Champagne Pop (soft white gold w/pink & golden tones). It applies transparently over any makeup product – providing illumination wherever applied – SO AMAZING!

Powder Me Up Real Good
After all those layer-ons upon layers, we need something powder-finish, right? So let’s move on to powders. Powders can add an ethereal radiance and take the edge off any overly bright highlighter or primer, but use too much, and you risk looking like a chalkboard.
So we suggest using translucent powder rather than one that is heavily pigmented. Our favorite transluscent powder is the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($39).
For an even more intense glow, Chantecaille Les Paillettes Highlighting Powder ($45) help give our cheekbones a supernatural sheen 😉
More Retail Therapy Maybe…
- Use lightly highlighted or.
- go for natural/transluscent finish
- Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder
- Chantecaille les pailletes highlighting powder
The Bright Touch Up with Blushes & Bronzers
Most people are aware of blushes – after all, they have been around since Elizabeth I ruled England – just kidding! – However; most people seem confused about bronzers. Bronzer adds warmth to your complexion while creating dimensionality by mimicking where the sun would naturally hit your face (aka: highpoints).
When it comes to makeup for glowing skin it’s essential that “Less Is More.” You don’t want thick amounts of product sitting on top of your skin causing excess shine!
Lately, cream-based products have become popular due to their truly ‘blended’ texture that resembles second-skin as intended. For example; Tom Ford Shade And Illuminate Palette($82), gives awesome coverage without feeling heavy.
Another fantastic option is Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer ($30); this compact matte bronzing-powder looks great in defining features whilst staying natural-looking not adding too much drama!
To be ensured always start out light-handedly and gradually increase product density as needed.
Let’s Recap One Last Time!
- Don’t overdo it with blushes and bronzers.
- Use cream-based products instead of powder usually when natural is the desired appearance (huh!)

- Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer
Lips To Match
Lastly, we need lip products that may also work to get our lips look glossy. And if you want a more beautiful pout, try a hydrating lipstick like Kosas Weightless Lip Color in Rosewater ($28), which contains avocado oil.
Another great pick is Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer ($21). The gloss has subtle shimmer without any stickiness –YES! Stick-free experience altogether feels fancy-and-formal!
