My Go-To Glowy Skin Products

I am not one of those matte skin, instagram-chiseled type of girls. I looooove dewy, glory, lit-from-within skin. As someone who is constantly craving moisturized and beyond hydrated skin, I chug water like it's my JOB and have narrowed down the best products to fake it til I make it. 

Let's start with skincare. Right now I'm using the Reviving Mint Cleanser from Targeted Skin in the morning, and a BeautyCounter Charcoal Bar with my Clarisonic at night. I like to be super exfoliated so there's no dry skin to prevent me from perfectly glowy skin, and the Clarisonic reallyyyy helps with that - I'm definitely on the drier side the skin spectrum. 

A couple times a week, I use a Formula 10.0.6 peel mask. I've done a post on this brand before, and the obsession is still very much alive and while. I actually just picked up a new peel mask, the Be Berry Smooth Moisturizing Mask. I have the illuminating mask and the skin brightening mask, but I definitely wanted something to add some moisture back to my skin. I really like it so far!

Next up, moisturizer. My favorite Clinique Moisture Surge Gel-Moisturizer is almost empty, and let me tell you, that's pretty big deal for me. I love trying new products and I never really completely go through an entire product (with the exception of mascara). This stuff is amazing. It has the strangest consistency but it really, really, really hydrates your skin. At night, I like to use an oil, like the Beautycounter Brightening Facial Oil, to soak in overnight.

As far as eye cream, I have found a new holy-grail product: the Luminous Eye Cream from Targeted Skin. I almost wanted to do a whole separate post just dedicated to this stuff. It is glowy to the point of literally almost being a highlighter. It's unreal. Also, it's currently 10% off through December, and if you buy it in a bundle on the Targeted Skin website with another great eye product, it's wayyyy discounted! I have actually started putting this cream on places other than my eye area, like my brow bone and cheekbones. It's like a luminous primer before the primer!

...which leads me to the primer. I just started using the Becca Backlit Priming Face Filter Primer (what a mouthful) and I'm hooked. It's super glowy - a little goes a long way, ladies. After moisturizing, I apply this primer all over and let it soak in for a minute or two before I use foundation.

Yes, I've started to use foundation again. Just a little bit! I really like the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation - I'm currently using the shade Deauville, because I am that pale right now. I apply it with a damp BeautyBlender so I don't use too much product - I try to make it as sheer as possible. The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is a fan favorite, and I have it in the shade Vanilla.

If you want extra-dewy skin, try to stick to cream-based products rather than powder based. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Cream is actually fantastic, and I've used it for years. I have it in Champagne Pop, and have yet to try the other colors, but this is so, so pretty and actually melts into your skin. Sephora is having a huge *sale* right now and this product is at a discounted price! Yay! 

As for powders, one of my favorite beauty products of all time is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous. I am not lying when I say it's in my top 5 fave products EVER and it is soooooooo worth the higher price tag. It's like Facetune in real life. Unreal. 

Lastly, and something I'm super excited about receiving, is the Becca Après Ski Glow Face Palette. It was also on sale at Sephora yesterday, and I have sampled it a couple of times during trips to Ulta. It includes two blushes, one bronzer, and three highlighters. SO PRETTY. SO GLOWY. So no, I have yet to fully experience the power of this palette, but stay tuned. 

What products do y'all like to use to make your skin extra glowy and hydrated? Let me know!!
