We all want skin that looks healthy, fresh, and radiant- kissed by sunshine and morning dew.

First step of any good makeup routine is almost always hydrate the skin. Flood the skin with moisture to let it glow from the inside out. When Patrick Ta spoke at our annual Beautyscape event this past March, he shared one of his skin-prepping tips: lots and lots of light layers of moisture.

He prepped the model’s skin with many layers of our Hydrating Water Essence. Simply pour 5-10 drops into your hand, rub between your palms, and gently pat into the cheeks, forehead, and chin. Repeat at least 3, and as many as 10 times until skin looks plump and glowy. Allow the essence to absorb for 5 minutes (this is a good time to do your brows).

Next, apply a light layer of glowy foundation or tinted moisturizer. Our Beautifully Bare Serum Foundation is designed to give you that natural lit-from-within glow, while nourishing the skin all day long.

Finally, the fun part- the shimmer for the ultimate radiance. This is where you can customize exactly what kind of glow you want.

For a natural, nourishing glow with a wet, skin-like finish, our Power Glow Liquid Highlighter is your best friend. Infused with Argan Oil, this glowy liquid illuminates cheekbones, shoulders, and collarbones. Also, beautiful mixed into any complexion products for added glow.

For a more intense, lit to the gods look, the key is layer highlighters. Start with a cream highlight like the Beautifully Bare Highlighting Stick, for a slightly sticky base. Next, buff a powder highlight like our Shimmer Highlight Powder or Baked Highlighter using a dense, tapered brush.
