Let Your Skin Glow!

If you've been reading my beauty/makeup related posts for a while now, you'll know that I like to have fresh looking face and dewy makeup. I've never been about a matte look, as I think that it looks far more unnatural, and if done incorrectly, can leave your makeup looking cakey.

One issue I have however, is that fact that my skin gets rather oily a lot of the time. So, while I like my makeup looking dewy and fresh, if it isn't set correctly, then it disappears in a couple of hours. Now, I've been using the Urban Decay De-Slick spray for a couple of months now, and that's been doing a pretty damn good job at keeping everything in place, however sometimes, I just want a dusting of powder to keep everything growing! 

I've never been a fan of powders commonly used to set your makeup, because like I said above, they can often result in cakey looking skin, and a face that appears flat with no dimension! I've been wanting to try the Hourglass Ambient Ligting Powders for ages, but have never been able to justify the price for what is essentially just a simple setting powder - but one which is meant to leave your skin looking radiant. So, when I found the Makeup Revolution Radiance palette, I thought I'd give that a whirl instead.

It contain three shades of power, all of which have a beautiful illuminating and radiance boosting quality when applied to the skin. Not only do they keep my makeup in place far better then if I was to completely skip the power step, but they also keep my makeup looking as fresh and glowing as I like! Each of these powers can be used as lightly or heavily as you wish in order to create the look you want. As you can see from the swatches above, they all look pretty darn pigmented... and they really can be! If you want to use them as more of a highlighter on specific parts of your face - i.e. your cheek or brow bones - then you can build up to colour to make it stand out far more. However, these powders are also fab for an all over powder - which is what I mainly use them for (I find the shade on the left works best for my skintone when dusting allover the face). If you use a big fluffy brush and just swirl it lightly in the product, it applies beautifully to the face, distributing the product evenly and leaving you looking completely radiant!
