Pretty: How to Glow Without Shine

This week, Swelle's resident makeup expert Corinne O'Brien offers advice on what to look for and what to avoid in achieving that sought-after glowing skin, thanks to a question submitted by reader Gemma:
'What is the best way to apply light diffusing concealers and other products formulated for adding glow, without looking overdone and shiny?'


 C: There are many ways to bring a subtle, natural looking glow to your skin.  Start by choosing the feature you'd like to highlight. Whether it's your skin, bone structure or body, just remember that picking one feature is key when choosing to do the dewy look.  It's also important to keep placement in mind - this will ensure that you don't look overdone and shiny.
First, you can add a glow with makeup:
Use light diffusing concealers in the undereye area where it is most needed to lift and detract from dark circles. 
For blemishes and discolouration use a regular concealer as you don't want to highlight these areas.
Try a luminizing moisturizer. MAC does a great one called Strobe Cream which is a pearlized face cream that gives you a great glow underneath your makeup or on its own.  Benefit High Beam is another great product for highlighting key areas on the face such as the top of the cheekbone, down the middle of your nose, or on the browbone.  All of these areas lift the face and bring light to the areas you want to highlight.
I recently came across a new face and body lotion called Prtty Peaushun (pronounced 'Pretty Potion' and yes, it's really spelled that way).  This product claims to not only make your skin glow but also lifts, firms and tightens the skin - who doesn't want that? It adds a subtle sheen to the skin that accentuates muscle tone and makes the skin look flawless.
Glow
Apparently, you can also drink your way to a healthy glow. A new product called Glowelle  promises to make you glow from the inside out.  This beauty drink contains dietary supplements and skin-beautifying antioxidants that work to help fight signs of ageing by nourishing the skin.  (Or you can just get 8 hours of sleep every night, eat healthy and drink lots of water!)

So there you have it! Several ways to add "glow" to your daily look without a lot of fuss and with beautiful results.

Enjoy the summer and go get your glow on!

Am I Too Old to Wear Body Shimmer When Going Out at Night?

From Saturday's Globe and Mail
By: Bahar Niramwalla

The Question

At what age should a woman stop wearing body shimmer when going out at night?

The Answer

I'm not sure I can pinpoint the exact age when body glitter becomes a no-no, but I can tell you that when it comes down to it, there are no age limits to showcasing your best assets.

If you are looking to bring out your collar bones and shoulders, using a shimmer cream or light dusting powder will show off the areas by attracting light.

If you've been attending every spin class at the gym and want to show off those killer gams, try using a lotion that has a sheen to it. Prtty Peashun is a non-greasy option that can be used on legs and everywhere else, even your face. It adds a glow to the skin without leaving little bits of sparkle behind.

behind the scenes at the today show: showing moms how to wear swimsuits with dignity!

Getting ready for the TODAY show segment
Moms detest bathing suit season. And, for good reason! 20 something size two women have no issue wriggling into a teeny, weeny bikini. But for real women—those with lumps, bumps and other unsightly bulges– there is an inimitable sense of dread attached to swimsuit hunting. I cast real women-size 8-14 –to show  how the right swimsuit and thoughtful styling can make you look thinner, taller and glamorous!

SWIMWEAR 101
  • THE THREE Cs of swimsuit shopping: Construction , contrast, compression, cover-ups
  • Elongate the neck and emphasize the d├ęcolletage
  • Use big baubles for the beach..(say it 5 times fast!) like cuffs, rings and earrings to draw attention to the body parts you like and camouflage what you don’t
  • A cover-up is a layering tool that masks a thousand flaws
  • A subtle heel elongates the silhouette
