Our assistant beauty buyer, Charlotte Giddeon-Powell, reveals the five glow-boosting makeup products she uses to make her darker skin glow…
I mix one-to-two drops of this into my moisturiser before makeup and it completely lifts my complexion and gives an instant glow. I also love how it protects from environmental damage and is packed full of skin-friendly antioxidants.
This is a great multitasker and a little goes a long way. I use mine to brighten dark circles under my eyes. One dot under each eye makes my complexion look instantly more refreshed. The shade range is great too.
I’m not usually a big fan of powdered products, but I live for the glow this gives. It’s really finely milled and it’s a great colour on my skin tone. I use a tiny bit under my eyes to set my concealer too.
Blusher adds a really fun and youthful look to your face and NARS without a doubt do the best blushers. The colours are incredibly bright and have great pay-off. I like to apply my blusher quite high up on my cheekbones and more towards my temples. This really lifts the whole face. Oh and a little bit on the tip of my nose…
This highlighter is another firm favourite of mine as it’s not too sparkly and truly gives a natural glow. It’s slightly gold too, which really compliments my skin tone.
