Pun fully intended. Give it a glow/go.
Now we’re into a new year and, well let’s say we’ve all taken a battering, be it booze,late nights or indeed the Great British weather or for overseas readers , cold,bitter winds.
So how do we go about, making ourselves look, polished and the inner Jlo glow? To coin a phrase.
Well i have a few beauty tricks up my tailored sleeve, to help with such a common problem. A mix of items most at a healthy price point, well let’s be fair, we’ve all spent a small countries income on gifts over the festive season, so to treat ourselves without quilt is perfect. So on my youtube channel i did a demo Using The products, So do feel free to have a WATCH

For those whom like a read and the science bit , here we go.
The best thing is Not to over load the skin, as it can then look caked and flaky, which isn’t a desired look. Many face washes have a “wake me up” effect such as “clean &clear’s” morning energy, shine control daily wash.
It contains lemongrass and fruit extract , to awaken the skin, leaving it clear.
Now to hydrate, this really is Key during the winter, and we tend to need more effective ingredients,
Pixi Glow tonic
Is not Only a Cult Product but the main reason, i thought to write this article.
It gently exfoliates the skin, leaving a nautral glow, after getting the dead skin cells off. It soothes and nourishes the skin with botanical extracts, and is alcohol free. So No drying aspect EERR hello miracle toner.
I’ve actually used a few of the Pixi beauty range,within this article /my routine. Their primer has a sutble gold/pearl glow to the skin , which reminds me of a Becca skin perfector, which i use a LOT in pearl, more of the higher end but both are fab. i mix Either or in This Case, the pixi Into
My new obsession the Pixi H2O skintint, i use shade 1 cream (as reference ). This super hydrating tinted cream, gives perfect coverage, without being cakey or “made up”, great on guys as doesn’t show on the skin, your left nourished and healthy the mix of the two products is key.
Now I did mention moisturising, so back to this step, in winter im a big fab of creme da la mer, but lets be honest; its out of most budgets, so my favourite gel moisturiser is
For dull skin, the texture soaks beautifully into my skin, helping soften and relieve and discomfort from dryness, super affordable and really great.
Ok so make up tips, to fake perfect skin. Now don’t go to crazy with a highlighter, or you will have Moon face and honey that aint cute.
My current fav sutble highlighter, is a new product, from the recent launch of Rodial , make up /contour range. I’m in shade 1.
Dust this powder, gently under the brow bone, the water/tearduc, across the top of your cheek bones and down the centre of the nose if needed, leaves a gentle glow and awake look to the eyes , which is a must, if eyes look dull. Try a eyebrow, that helps beong sparkle /whitening to the eye.such as the boots one.
Also i recommend the makeup revolution highlighter for a more budget friendly idea.
Now your a glowing with glamour and life, hydrate from within , water kids its super important and let’s be honest, we never really drink enough. Im a coffee fend and to everyone coffee you need 3glasses of water to balance out. Ouch
There are gels you can add to water to help. Such as skinade. They are designed to help add collagen or extra vitamins to your organs. Doing you good, more long term for results but great non the less.
Blusher, its very important , adding colour to the skin brings life, power blushes can skin to dead/dry skin. So i always recommend a cream blusher. Im in love with ” sleek”‘s
A 3 blush palette offering colours such as
Newport peach (my fav)
The surf (softest )
Cab be mixed or alone, give great colour and life, super bendable and easy. I’m a big fan of sleek and have used on many celeb clients .
