How to Make Your Face Glow with Makeup like Christina Aguilera

by on Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

So, Javier Cámara posted two pictures of Christina Aguilera in what I think might be a promo for her new perfume (Royal Desire – ack!) They’re very pretty, and the thing that strikes me the most is how luminescent the photos are shot. Her skin looks like it’s glowing from under the surface. Obviously, you can’t really achieve that look without the help of Photoshop and professional lighting…

OR CAN YOU?

There are a couple beauty products that I think work to help make your skin look more vibrant and … not shiny as in oily, but as if lit by the moon.

How to make your face glow with makeup:

MAC Beauty Powder Blush: Silky-fine, shot with pearl, this blush inspires a subtle glow in tandem with a pure colour vibe. Ultra-smooth, delivers a light and alluring shimmer together with a sheer-colour payoff. Builds colour for ultimate effect. In every way luxurious. Limited edition.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish: A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face.

MAC Iridescent Power Loose: Iridescent Powder is a finely milled mixture of Mica and pigments which gives the skin a beautiful sheen. It can be used on its own or mixed into other products like foundations or moisturizers to enhance their iridescent qualities. Designed to apply easily and uniformly without streaking and caking, it blends beautifully and can be applied on bare skin or over foundation. Because it’s so concentrated it should be used sparingly at first.

MAC Iridescent Power Pressed: A luminous pressed face powder that highlights the skin with a subtle glaze of colour. A mixture of Mica and pigments gives the skin a beautiful sheen and a subtle glow. Ultra smooth and silky. May be used alone or with foundation. It can be used on its own or mixed into other products like foundations or moisturizers to enhance their iridescent qualities. Long-lasting and designed to apply easily and uniformly without streaking and caking. Because it’s so concentrated it should be used sparingly at first.

MAC 129 Powder Blush Brush: The 129 Blush/Brush with a shorter handle. Includes a travel pouch to keep your brush clean. This brush is particularly good for blush application. The fibres are soft and form a full, rounded shape. M·A·C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature wood handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules.

She looks so fake in this photo, now.  How to make your face glowing like that? Uh, photoshop!  But she’s probably got some really nice makeup on, to boot.
