Make me Glow, Glow, Glow

I love making my skin glow and throughout the years I've discovered different products and different ways to make skin glow.

A recent discovery is from luxury Italian Skincare range called Comfort Zone, only found in exclusive spas and resorts around the World.

The Absolute Pearl light concentrate is a glowing oxygenating hydrator with pearl powder, oxygenating factors and olive oil.

Due to the pearl powder's high content of amino acids and mineral salts, it's highly moisturising and deeply nourishing. It regulates skin tone (it's not a whitening product but if the whole system is used correctly, it will treat pigmentation).

I have been scraping out sachet samples of this product for the last month, I love it. I use it purely for cosmetic reasons because it gives my skin a nice natural luminous glow throughout the cold months when my skin is paler.

When I ran out of Absolute Pearl, I turned to New CID's i-glow, a marbelized glow powder. I love using this over primer (the New CID i-prime, which slides on and sinks into skin like velvet) and under bronzer. When you apply bronzer on top of i-glow, you'll love the effect, a really subtle shimmer.

If you're not really into shimmer but want a really natural looking glow, I highly recommend Dr Perricone's No Foundation Foundation! I LOVE this product to make skin glow. I use this on the weekends, I put it on top of my Chantecaille tinted moisturiser, around cheekbones. I prefer the coverage of Chantecaille for all over my skin, I think Dr P's No Foundation Foundation is for the lucky gals who have even skintone or perfect skin. Brilliant glowing product though, especially as the 'natural glow' was huge on the S/S 11 catwalks.

When I used to work as a make-up artist, some of my older clients loved the idea of having shimmering skin but said it highlighted fine lines. So I recommend using a primer or Trish McEvoy's Line Refiner and then apply shimmer products.

Thanks for reading, gotta glow ;)



  1. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
