Show That Glow- Get Radiant Skin This Season With NARS

Just because the colder months have now officially rolled in, and you've changed up your summer skincare routine, it doesn't mean you have to do the same with your makeup. I am a dewy skin kinda girl above 0'degrees celcius and also below it. So here is my take on getting radiant skin this season, and who better to help you achieve it than trusty NARS.
One of my favourite foundations of all time is NARS sheer glow. It's velvetty finish, full coverage but lightweight feel is heavenly on your skin and it creates the most beautiful flawless finish, providing a great base for makeup. Great for all skin types, NARS sheer glow gives the most gorgeous dewy finish, and mixes really well with cream products and powders which you can't always find with dewy foundations.

To really up the amp on a radiant glow, I sometimes mix in my NARS Copacabana illuminator into my foundation, or apply it onto the areas I want to highlight afterwards. It's so gorgeous, but subtle. Not obvious and looks like your skin is just naturally glowing. I find that with highlighters they tend to be very pinky toned, very gold, or very pearly, but this one hits the nail on the head. It's a light pearlescent shimmer that sinks into the skin leaving the most subtle but effective finish.

Adding to my radiant glow, I like to contour with my NARS laguna bronzer. I can't find the right words to describe this bronzer other than 'kdsihfdkisahiaouiez'. I'v hit pan on mine and so it's about time I picked up a new one. It's just such a gorgeous colour, again great for all skin tones, and being matte, is a great one for contouring. I like to apply it all over to where the sun would naturally hit and then deepen it into the hollows of my cheeks.

To finish off, I buff on NARS blusher in 'Orgasm' for a peachy pink flushed look on my cheeks. This blusher has a subtle gold shimmer running through it so adds to that radiant finish. I don't usually apply blusher all the way up my cheekbones, but with this product I like to use whatever is left on the brush and lightly apply it uptowards my cheekbones to amp up the glow.

Are you like me and love the dewy look no matter what time of year? What products do you like to use this season?
