It’s now 2019, and my beauty goal this new year is to make my daily glam less about transforming my look, and more about owning the glow I’ve already got. I’ve always loved the “no makeup-makeup” look, but i’ve always secretly used pretty full coverage foundation and shiny highlighter to achieve that. Now, though, I’ve found a way to take that look to a new level. A realer, more truly glowing level.

One of my favorite brands in the world of beauty, Laura Mercier , makes products that enhance my own glow. I recently discovered their tinted moisturizer (I know, I’m late to the game!), and I won’t be wearing regular foundation nearly as much, if ever. Their colour infusion blush line doesn’t look like just any blush on the skin- its a silky, glowing wash of color that doesn’t sit on top of the skin in an artificial way. It somehow seems to find it’s way into a real glow, a lit from within kind of warmth that brings my face to life without hiding me.
