and is the author of About Face (Fair Winds Press).
When people say they want that “lit-from-within glow,” they’re
talking about the healthy, dewy look you have when you’re on vacation
in a sunny place. The first thing you should do to combat dull skin is
get a humidifier. When skin is moist, makeup will go on smoother and
sit on your face better.
Create Foundation. Unless you have phenomenal skin,
you can benefit from sheer foundation. Apply moisturizer first, let it
rest for a minute, then dab off any extra oil with a tissue. Choose a
liquid or cream foundation, and apply it with a brush, which looks most
Think Outside. Bronzer is crucial if you want to
look sun-kissed. Women often make the mistake of choosing a brick-red
powder, but anyone with fair or medium skin should choose a yellow-brown
formula. You want to create a halo of bronzer around your face: Moving
in a circular motion, lightly buff the apples of the cheeks, the
temples and hairline, and under the jawbone. Leave the areas around
your nose and eyes alone. Bronzer creates too much darkness there,
which can make you look older.
Highlight Sparingly. If you want the light to catch
your features, highlighter works well—just don’t go overboard. I like
to swipe a powder highlighter from the temples to the tops of the
cheekbones. A golden champagne looks good on fair and medium skin; dark
skin looks best with a deeper bronze shade. If you’re in a rush, use
pressed powder on your T-zone, nose, and chin. The areas you leave alone
will reflect light and naturally highlight your cheekbones and
Keep It Light. Lips should be neutral and glossy. A
woman with fair skin looks best with pink gloss; for dark skin,
mahogany lip gloss is beautiful. Finish by brushing a touch of golden
pink blush onto the apples of your cheeks.
