What radiance makeup?
Glow makeup is nothing more than illuminated makeup. The word glow is glow in English, that is to say, it refers to a style of makeup that is increasingly shiny on certain specific points.
This glow does not only come from the illuminator used under the skin, because currently, naturally glowing skin is valued.
For this, we use lighter foundations with a glossy finish, avoiding the mat foundation and also moisturizers under the foundation, which also provide this natural glow effect.

natural shine makeup
First of all, we separate a natural light makeup. In this case, the skin is achieved with a base without a matte finish, with light to medium coverage and strategic points of the face illuminated to provide the effect of naturalness.
In addition, in the eyes, highlighters are also used under the eyebrows and the strongest shadows are left out. The bright spots on natural skin are: above the cheek, below the eyebrows and on the tip of the nose.
Like the base used, the highlighter is also more natural and has a slightly less glittery sheen. Discover some great ideas to inspire you and copy:
elaborate shine makeup
Perfect for night out and occasions that require makeup with a thicker, taller finish. In this case, a matte finishing base can be used, as the illuminator is usually more powerful.
More points are illuminated in elaborate makeup, in this case besides those mentioned above (under eyebrows, tip of nose and cheekbones) other parts are also highlighted with illumination. These are: the inner corner of the eyes (the corner of the teardrop), eyeshadows with a lot of shine, the nose, the chin, above the lips and the neck.
Because it is more elaborate, it can be combined with stronger and darker eye shadows and also with larger false eyelashes.
To make your makeup even more radiant, also use the blush with shine and apply with the highlighter on the cheekbones. See below for several elaborate and well-lit makeup ideas:
Color makeup can go both ways, either for more natural makeup and just a few brightly colored elements, or very colorful and with a heavier finish.
For the natural, color-illuminated finish, opt for less pigmented but brighter contours and golden shadows.
For more elaborate makeup, in addition to the more eye-catching eye shadow colors, use thicker and larger sparkle glitter. And of course, don’t forget to lighten the right spots on the face in makeup styles to bring glow to the skin. Here are some amazing ideas to inspire you:
