NEW DELHI: While 8 hours of “restful sleep”, drinking 8 glasses of water and using lots of highlighters can contribute to glowing skin, it all depends on the specifics of the cosmetics you use.
Mamta Naik, Associate Vice President, Product Development, SUGAR Cosmetics guides you with these 5 tips for nailing the glossy makeup trend:
Step 1: Start with an illuminating moisturizer
We all know that truly flawless makeup starts with a well-hydrated base! It’s the perfect hack to get truly lit skin from within, without drinking 8 glasses of water a day.
Step 2: Foundation first
Then, amp up your illuminating skin with a lightweight, dewy foundation. This will not only even out your skin tone but also give an extremely natural finish.
Step 3: Observe the glow
Besides colorful eyeliner and metallic eye makeup, glossy eyeshadow has also become more and more popular lately. Models and celebrities love this shiny, shiny look – and the good news is that it’s totally achievable. Simply dab a small amount of Vaseline or your favorite clear (eye-safe) lip gloss onto your eyelids, and you’re done!
Step 4: Brightening setting spray
Make your glow last all day with a brightening setting mist. This will not only keep your glamor intact but will also add a slight glow of illumination to your face.
Step 5: bet on the shine!
Now comes the fun part. The key to looking absolutely fresh and glowing is to add gloss to your lips. A fresh pop of color on your lips topped with a glossy sheen is the final and final hack to crack the glossy makeup look.

The most important step in creating brilliant makeup is to make sure that you prep your skin perfectly. This means that you should use products that are suitable for your skin type. If you have dry skin, use a heavy moisturizer. If you have combination or sensitive skin, use a gel or serum-based moisturizer. This is an extremely important step. Once you are done, let it sit on your skin for a good 5 minutes.
The next step is to use a primer that has a dewy finish. Apply it to all the high points of your face – the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, a little on the chin and above your eyebrows. You can also mix a little liquid or powder highlighter into your foundation and smudge it onto your skin with a sponge, brush, or your fingertips. Apply powder to specific areas like under the eyes, around the mouth, the corners of the nose, a bit on the forehead where there is a lot of movement in your facial structure. Once you’re done, you’ll have a gorgeous rosy highlight.
