No matter where you are in the world, the month of May is always a good time to seek out that springtime glow. Getting a fresh look is easy to achieve thanks to some nifty products and careful application. Here are our top recommendations:
Achieving a radiant spring glow is easier than you think...
1. Yes to Grapefruit Pore Perfection Brightening Peel
This really does get to the core of your glow and with several awards under its belt, we think you need to give it a go! Use on clean, cleansed skin a couple of times a week by simply applying and leaving on for around 10 minutes before rinsing off to unveil bright skin. As it says on the package, there's plenty of citrusy freshness in this peel, along with other brightening agents like honey and good old aqua, adding plenty of nourishment.
2. Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base
This is a great way to begin your glowy look as a primer or, if you're not keen on going all out, it may be the only product you need to master the springtime shine. Not only does it hydrate your face but it will also give a long lasting dewy finish, perfect for when you're outdoors. Be warned though that the SPF is low, so add a layer of sunscreen before applying this base!
3. Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Makeup
Want a weightless formula that covers and allows your natural shine to show through? Then this is the foundation for you! With 18 great shades on offer no one is left out, and it is oil free, so that glow you see won't be because of grease or any nasties!
The brand also notes that the make-up is formulated with “light diffusing spheres”, which sounds like enough reason for us to use it this spring. On top of all these perks it boasts anti-wrinkle ingredients as well as the likes of antioxidant green tea and 'brightening Litchiderm', an element that prevents free radicals and boosts skin's wellbeing.
4. Dior Cheek & Lip Glow
It may look like a scarily vibrant colour but this product should not be feared and even pale-skinned beauties will be able to pull it off. But how to use it on both lips and cheeks? With a small ball applicator you just need to brush a small circle into the apples of your cheeks and blend with a brush to give a rosy glow, and as for the lips gently dab on and spread with your finger for a subtle pink finish. In all, you get a gorgeous pink glow that looks very natural.
