When I first got into makeup, my greasy skin and I were told that the type of foundation that would suit my skin type would be those that offered a mattifying finish. I was also told that powders would be my best friend. So long story short, I pretty much spent my ‘early makeup days’ being all matte and err-thang and looking like I’d got this powder-like bits in all areas of my face that were prone to creasing.
I have seen and heard many times that people like me should/would want to steer away from anything that says ‘illuminating’, ‘glow-boosting’, 'insert other words from the thesaurus that share the same meaning as the other two', etc. Here’s the thing: I want dat glow. So I’m saying adios to anything that says ‘matte’--REBEL--and beginning to embrace the fact that I’m gonna look more like an oil-slick than I normally am. But hey, these days, I’d consider oily as a compliment.
Currently--well, more like when I’m in the mood to wear foundation--I use this technique that incorporates mixing a few drops of my SPOIL Organics Argan Oil into (about a pump of) my foundation. I just mix them together using my finger, dot the concoction all over my face, then blend in using my makeup sponge that looks like a Beauty Blender, but is not. Not only does the beauty oil sheers down the coverage, but it also enhances the skin’s radiance. I’m not talking about major glimmering, blinding glow, but more of a natural-looking dew.
But no. I’m not afraid to up my glow game, for I have the audacity to add Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight, Becca Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid, and anything that is ‘shining’, ‘shimmering’, and ‘splendid’ to my makeup wish-list. Told ya, I want dat glow.
