Whether you prefer a natural makeup look or like to experiment with bold, colourful makeup styles, one thing is certain: The first step in any makeup look is healthy skin. Hydrated, radiant skin is the perfect canvas for any makeup style, and can even give you the confidence to go bare-faced if you choose.
Still, achieving glowy skin is sometimes easier said than done. Even with a consistent skincare routine, plenty of hydration each day, and flawless makeup application, it’s easy to feel like your skin isn’t as dewy or radiant as you’d like. To help get you get glowing, fast, we’ve rounded up our top 5 makeup and skincare tips for radiant skin. From which products to use to how to exfoliate, read our guide and learn how to get glowing, radiant skin - naturally.
1. Thoroughly remove makeup
The first step to achieving glowing skin is thoroughly removing all makeup and surface debris with a gentle, natural makeup remover. Our Phytoactive Micellar Rosewater hydrates your skin as it cleanses, and will remove all traces of makeup, SPF, sweat, grime, and any environmental pollutants you’ve been exposed to throughout the day. To use, simply soak a cotton pad with the micellar water and gently wipe your face, repeating until the pad comes away from your face clean.
For an ever deeper clean, try double cleansing by following our hydrating micellar water with our Phytofuse Renew Camellia Oil Cleanser. Enriched with powerful Rose of Jericho extract, this cleanser will also help brighten your skin and even out texture.
2. Exfoliate regularly
Once or twice a week, depending on your skin type, remove dead skin cells and polish your skin with a natural exfoliant. Our Phytofuse Renewal Caviar Lime Exfoliator whisks away dead skin cells and encourages faster cell turnover, leaving you with a smooth, radiant complexion. Micronised bamboo stem and pumice deeply purify pores and refine skin texture, while natural fruit AHAs from Australian Caviar Lime dissolve dead skin cells in an instant.
3. Add layers of hydration
Hydration is the key to unlocking radiant skin, so choose your facial moisturisers wisely and layer them for the best results. We recommend a three-step moisturising routine to keep dryness and irritation at bay and keep skin looking plump and dewy.
First, smooth in a few drops of our Phytoactive Rosehip Oil Blend, a powerful facial oil made of 95% Certified Organic Rosehip Oil. One of the best hydrating oils for the face, rosehip oil benefits for skin include gentle hydration, oil management, brightening of dark spots, and reduced healing times. Plus, it smells amazing, and can double as your daily dose of aromatherapy.
Once your facial oil has been absorbed, start skin prep for makeup by massaging in a hydrating primer. With a skin-loving blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil, and Kangaroo Paw extract, our Certified Organic Pure Perfection Primer is perfect for all skin types and will give you an even, hydrated canvas on which to build your beauty look.
To lock in both layers of moisture, finish with a hydrating BB cream like our rich, multi-tasking Certified Organic BB Cream. Thanks to a blend of super-hydrating Prickly Pear, Pomegranate, Avocado, and Jojoba Oils, this BB cream will moisturise your skin as it evens out skin tone and fights the signs of ageing.
4. Get glowing
Build on your base with a dusting of our Baked Mineral Illuminisor in the shade Dewdrop, the perfect peachy-nude for a glowing natural look. Using our Vegan Stippling Brush, sweep the natural illuminisor over the high points of your face - your brow bone, the bridge of your nose, and the apples of your cheeks - for a healthy, radiant look. Natural pigments and a subtle sheen make this the best powder highlighter for achieving a daytime-friendly glowing look that doesn’t take it over the top.
5. Go for gold
Finish off your dewy makeup look with a liquid highlighter that adds soft shimmer and highlights your best features. Our Limited Edition Liquid Glow Illuminisor is the perfect highlighter for the job and can be dabbed onto the outer edges of your eyes, Cupid’s bow, apples of your cheeks, and the bridge of your nose for an ethereal glow.
With a hydrating formula that includes Certified Organic Cranberry Water and Coconut Oil, it’ll leave your skin healthy and plump for long after you’ve removed the last bit of makeup.
Get healthy skin that glows with or without makeup
A good makeup and skincare routine are two steps to getting the glowing skin you’ve always wanted - but they’re not the only ones. In addition to following our tips for radiant skin, always remember to drink at least 2 litres of water everyday, maintain a healthy sleep schedule, and wear SPF whenever you’ll be in the sun for prolonged periods. Making a habit to do all of the above will give your skin the best possible chance to shine - literally.
