Get Gorgeous Glowing Skin!!!

Product Review: GlimmerSHEERS, $28 at beautyaddicts.com.

beautyADDICTS has a cult following and with good reason…the products are pretty spectacular! Just ask celebs Zooey Deschanel, Sharon Stone and Zoe Saldana to name a few. I love their GlimmerSHEERS, the ultimate makeup duo designed to highlight the eyes, face and cheeks. Containing skin-healthy ingredients like Green Tea and Jojoba Oil the Glimmer side adds a sun-kissed, luminous glow, the Sheer side makes your skin appear dewy. When combined, it’s out-of-this-world gorgeous!!!

You can use them alone or together to customize your look. I particularly like Express (a golden shade) for my lids and cheeks and I use Seduce (a silvery hue) to make my eyes sparkle by adding it to the inner corner of my eyes. I also like it on my browbone and the bridge of my nose. There’s also a rosy-hued “Motivate” and a lilac-y Glow.

It’s a great everyday look but as with any illuminating product the key is not to overdo it — a smidge too much and you can look greasy. Apply just a bit to the top of your cheekbones, your browbone and down the bridge of your nose. For evening try it on the inner corners of your eyes for some sparkle. Perfect!

I have a friend who I’ve known for years. She’s smart, funny, down to earth, focused on career and family and great fun to hang with. She’s confident and comfortable in her own skin and was never concerned with her looks…in fact, so unconcerned that she didn’t wear a drop of makeup!

I never said anything about it until I went to her home and caught a glimpse of her in her wedding photo…she looked gorgeous. Like 1,000 times better gorgeous!!! She has the most beautiful blue eyes, but because her lashes are light you didn’t  notice just how special they are. Now, I might have been a little out of line (maybe even a lot!), but I made her promise me she’d try to wear concealer to even out her skin tone and mascara to make her eyes pop.

Her husband didn’t want her to change–he said he prefers her “au natural” and he asked me why I was pushing makeup on her when I didn’t wear any myself. Ha!!! Us beauty girls know everyone looks better with a little makeup. Done right, you look like your best self–skin more glow-y, eyes a bit brighter, lips more alluring. When I see my friend now, she’s usually wearing a little something…and she looks great!

For my usual “no-makeup” look  I wear:

  • under-eye concealer
  • beauty balm or strategically applied concealer
  • cream blush
  • eye liner
  • mascara
  • clear lip balm
