HOW TO GET THE GLOW

Summer is finally in full-swing and we’re loving this season’s tropical trend! But what’s on the beauty radar for summer 2019? Read on to find out.


This season we’re seeing a focus on glossy lips, bright eyeshadows and big brows – yes, ladies – they’re here to stay! And beauty lovers will rejoice, as one of this summer’s biggest beauty trends is glowing skin. Sounds easy enough, right? Here’s how you can get the ultimate glow.

1. DRINK MORE WATER
We know…groundbreaking stuff. But increasing your water intake is one of the easiest ways to get a healthy summer glow, and it’s good for the whole body. So drink up, ladies!

2. SPF IS YOUR BFF
Apply sunscreen with SPF of at least 15 everyday and go higher if you can. If you wear makeup daily, try to get a foundation that contains SPF. Remember to remove your make-up before bedtime to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.

3. EXFOLIATE NIGHTLY
Exfoliation is the cornerstone of every skincare routine. In summer you may find your skin being drier than usual and exfoliation helps buff away the dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking radiant.

4. GET SWEATY

Exercise might be the last thing you feel like on a hot summer’s day, but physical activity improves blood flow, which in turn means your skin cells get more oxygen to help your body to heal tissue damage – such as sunburns and acne – faster.



5. GET A GOOD HIGHLIGHTER 
Now that you’ve taken care of your skin’s natural glow, you can start shopping for a good highlighter to add some extra shine to your radiant skin! Acclaimed celebrity makeup artist, Dana Delaney, recommends looking for a highlighter that’s two shades lighter than your own skin as this will look the most natural.

Here’s how to apply the perfect highlighter:

a.) Make sure your foundation is well blended by using a beauty sponge or brush, as this will be the canvas of your highlighter.

b.) Starting at your temple and moving towards your nose, sweep your blusher brush down your cheekbone.

c.) Using your finger, dab a bit of highlighter straight down your nose.

d.) For an extra pop, add highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes and round it off by dabbing a bit on your cupid’s bow (the centre of your lip).

You can shop highlighters from the Black Opal or essence range, available at a Jet store near you.

Go on – get that glow!
