Here's the answer to the number 1 question I'm asked! How to get radiant glowing skin.
Before I apply any makeup I use Philosophy Time in a Bottle Serum ( You can purchase here http://www.sephora.com/time-in-a-bottle-P379916 )
The next step is to apply MAC Strobe cream just on the high points of the face. Think cheekbones, chin, middles of forehead. Let it sink in. I usually feed my cats lol! By the time I'm done it's absorbed.
Next, apply your foundation. Now I use Laura Mercier Creme Foundation. I'm on the dryer side so I use cream based products. If you're on the oily side try Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide ( http://www.sephora.com/smooth-finish-flawless-fluide-P387423?skuId=1612142 ) .
I use a MAC stippling brush and a damp beauty blender. The tools you use are the biggest part to achieving a flawless canvass! I recently started using a Sigma Kabuki brush instead of the stippling and I'm loving the results! Head over to Sigma http://www.sigmabeauty.com/F80_Flat_Kabuki_p/f80.htm
After my foundation I do my brows, and eye shadow. I contour and then I highlight with my concealer. My current favorite concealer is NARS creamy concealer in Custard http://www.sephora.com/radiant-creamy-concealer-P377873?skuId=1478387
I don't use powder. I'm all about the dewy look!
Now the good part! I use Becca Pressed Highlight in Opal, and Moostone with a Makeup Forever fan brush ( http://www.sephora.com/134-large-powder-fan-brush-P382373?skuId=1536200 )
The fan brush is crucial to get that bright highlight.
