The golden glam

Women's Fitness (UK) - - Glow -

'Il­lu­mi­nate your skin and cre­ate a glowy, golden, glam­ourous make-up look this Christ­mas,' says Gaynor Matthews, founder of Wow How (wowhowapp.com). Method

Step 1. Firstly, prep your skin with a primer. Use your fin­ger­tips to ap­ply as this will al­low you to re­ally work the prod­uct onto your skin. If you’re in a hurry, we love the Hy­drat­ing Face Spray from Sönd Skin­care.

Step 2. Ap­ply a foun­da­tion that al­lows your nat­u­ral glow to shine through. Oily skin types might choose a matte fin­ish, whereas dry skin types might choose a BB cream or Sheer fin­ish foun­da­tion. Use a foun­da­tion brush or sponge, and ap­ply from the cen­tre of your face out­wards for a flaw­less fin­ish.

Step 3. Use a cream con­tour pal­ette or stick foun­da­tions. With the darker shade, de­fine your cheek bones, nose, jaw­line and chin. Then, take a damp sponge and tap in small cir­cu­lar mo­tions to blend the colour with your foun­da­tion. Con­cen­trate the lighter shade, in the cen­tre of your fore­head, on the chin, bridge of the nose and top of your cheek bones and blend as be­fore.

Step 4. Prep the eye­lids with a primer. Us­ing your favourite golden shadow, blend the shadow up to­wards the tail of your brow. Con­cen­trate the ma­jor­ity of the colour on the outer cor­ner and then blend and dif­fuse the colour up and out – this will give the flat­ter­ing il­lu­sion of a lifted eye. Re­mem­ber to then blend it along the lower lash line with a pen­cil brush, as this will tie the look to­gether. Then ap­ply lots of mas­cara for long lus­cious lashes!

Step 5. De­pend­ing on your pre­ferred look, choose a nude shade for a day time glam look, or bright red for a sul­try evening style. Lip­stick will last longer if you fill in your lips with a liner first. Prod­uct
