Achieve Glowy Skin In Autumn/Winter♥*

The craze for glowy and dewy skin this Summer was unreal! Highlighters at the ready as strobing was the latest beauty trend and everyone was wanting highlighted cheekbones. I must admit though, I do love a good highlight myself, it completes any makeup look, no matter how natural or dramatic it is! As we're coming into the Autumn and Winter seasons, your skin can become duller and loose it's natural glow, but I've found five products from The Body Shop which work perfectly in conjunction with each other to help bring your skin's glow back.

Moisturising is key! If you want any type of flawless base, you got to have smooth skin. Having a soft skin to start means all your face makeup will apply and look perfect. The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser* is my current go-to moisturiser every morning! It's quite lightweight yet extremely hydrating. It boosts skin which may look or feel tired. The best bit? It smells gorgeous! To me, it's basically Summer in a tub as it smells like Sprite or Fanta Lemon. As it's quite a strong scent, it helps the skin to feel awake and glow beautifully underneath the makeup!

A light base is perfect if you're wanting that glow to look as natural as possible! The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream* does the job. It gives coverage yet isn't too heavy on the skin. It smooths the skin, leaving it look flawless. I blend in with the W7 Power Puff Sponge as that's my own preference, and like the look of the finish. It's colour adapting, gives even coverage and doesn't clog up your pores. It is much lighter than a typical foundation is, so still looks very natural yet covers up any redness your skin may have. What else could you wish for?!

For concealer and under eye highlighting, The Body Shop Lightening Touch Concealer* is my favourite at the moment! It's a pen style concealer where you twist the bottom to use the concealer. I like to apply this in a triangle underneath my eyes as well as down the bridge of my nose for extra coverage. Again, I blend in with my W7 Power Puff as the tip of it reaches perfectly under my lower lashes to blend out the concealer. It's not cakey and blends like a dream. Not only is this concealer quite high coverage, but it's brightening so brings a lot of light under the eyes!

Layering highlighter is what I do best! I start off with The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter* which is a cream highlight. This can be applied before or after foundation, but I usually apply it after my foundation. I apply two or three dots on the tops of my cheekbones then blend with my contour brush from Real Techniques. It gives a subtle glow which is what I'm always trying to achieve! It also makes your skin look fresh, looks subtle and quite healthy! On top of that, I use The Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome*. I sweep my contour brush around this dome to pick up some product and apply on top of the previous highlighter. This does have a bit more of a shimmer to it. Alternatively, you could glide it along the tops of your cheekbones and blend out. Both work and leave your cheekbones looking on point (hahaha!)

So there you have it, my way on how to achieve that amazing glowy skin look in the Autumn and Winter!

Have you got any secrets to achieving glowy skin throughout Autumn and Winter?

  27. Wow I didn't realize how many new products The Body Shop has in their cosmetics range! Personally, for a glow in the fall/winter, I like to use Benefit Watt's Up cream highlighter under my foundation. It peeks through just enough to give a crazy natural lit from within look. Layers nice with powder highlighter, too. :)

  41. I definitely need to be more regimented and actually taking better care of my skin as I age, I'm guilty. I also need to go peruse a Body Shop again, it's been ages since I've been in one and I know they have some great products. I just find their stores a bit too smelly and intoxicating and I often steer clear because I'll get an instant headache.
