Perfect skin all day? Easy, in just 3 steps.

Yes, here I am talking about that damn glow again.

But, eugh, it's the best.
When you finally feel like you're glowing it's the best feeling. And I don't mean the I've used 
half a tube of highlighter glow, but a warm, healthy glow.

There are 3 things that I've been doing of late which I think have been helping me maintain
this sometimes passing, mythical thing. I often used to find that I'd have it when I had done
my makeup in the morning but by the time I came home my skin looked dull, flat and tired.

So here goes:

Use a mask every/every other evening. Masks don't have to be for a monthly treat, use them
a couple times a week (as long as they're not all clay) and your skin will thank you for it.

a few favourites of mine: Dermalogica Charcoal Mask, Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask, 
Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Masque.

Conceal. You probably do this already (I mean, you are reading a beauty blog so I'm going to
assume) but really take your time with it, and don't be afraid to use different concealers for
different parts of the face. A thicker one for spots, a light reflecting ones in parts you want
to highlight and a creamy one for minor blemishes.

a couple on my vanity are: Estée Lauder BB Glow, YSL Touche Éclat, Estée Lauder Double 
Wear Waterproof, Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer, Bobbi Brown Intensive 
Skin Serum Corrector and Concealer.

Blush. I had almost forgotten about blush and just ended up being a (light handed) bronzer kind
of girl. Until a few months ago where I was given a makeover in the beautiful Glenmore Road
MAC store where the makeup artist said that the shade Gingerly would look perfect on my 
skin tone to warm it up to my (then much darker) hair.
I've always had blushers but rarely used them, thinking they're going to make me look red.
But now as we're going into winter it's especially important to warm your face up and give
it that healthy glow when it's cold out.

aside from MAC gingerly blush I also love NARS Daydream and Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge.
