Dewy, hydrated, glowing, radiant, whatever you want to call it- it's the epitome of what makes skin look healthy and beautiful. The look of heavy matte makeup is well on it's way out, and skincare has managed to take center stage as a makeup substitute. Although I couldn't be more in favor of that, It's not the worst thing in the world to get a little dramatic. On a regular basis, in place of any type of eye shadow products, I generally use some type of eye oil or balm on my eye area paired with my regular skincare routine, and somehow that shiny, moisturized eyelid is what makes me feel pulled together, even though there is no pigment magic involved. That's when the experimenting came in to play. What's the ideal makeup look, that doesn't stray too far from my naturally high-shined lids? It's exactly that, but amplified with a hint of actual pigment. Is it wrong to say it's not that far from a natural glow? To be determined.
