Summer time is perfect for wearing less make-up and letting your skin breathe a bit. Especially for the ladies who feel naked without foundation, a good quality tinted moisturizer can be a great start to using a lighter foundation, but with the bonus of added moisture.
Being a huge fan of GlamGlow products to start, I discovered their GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer searching for a multi-purpose tinted moisturizer to both brighten my complexion and that I could use alone for a very light coverage. This product contains vitamins, green tea extract, and hyaluronic acid to brighten and moisturize skin, with added pearl particles that both blur imperfections and give a radiant sheen. The GlowStarter is available in three shades- Nude Glow (what I’m wearing), Pearl Glow (best for highlighting or very fair skin) and Sun Glow (for darker skin tones or to use for contouring or bronzing skin.) The three can be used together to contour or separately, alone or layered to create different looks and finishes. I just love a versatile product!
The first way I like to use GlamGlow’s mega illuminating moisturizer is to highlight over my regular foundation. If you’re not ready to let go of a full coverage foundation but are looking for an extra glow, this product will act as a beautiful highlighter but with added moisturizing benefits. I am wearing it on the my cheekbones and over my eyebrows creating a V shape (above), but you can apply anywhere on your skin you want to accentuate! Try using to highlight your collarbone, shoulders or décolletage.
The Glowstarter tinted moisturizers can also be used solo over the entire face to soften the complexion, provide light coverage and give skin a dewy finish. The pearl particles catch and reflect light and I’ve been loving wearing with no foundation in the sunshine, keeping things more natural and easy. It should be mentioned that this product does not contain SPF so make sure to use over a good quality sunscreen or day cream that contains SPF to protect against sun damage.
Happy Summer! xo
