The beachy backgrounds are a bit of a teaser, no? Well, maybe not for some of us. While I may not be able to find a solution to the dreary weather we've been having as of late, I do have a solution to the drab skin conditions that are hanging around as a result of the missing sunshine. Enter this trio, of face base wonders. One is a newer release (Hello Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet) and the other two just some items that are my go-to glow-getters. I swear by these products when my skin is lackluster and in need of something that is both a quick fix and guarantees results every time.

I start with a properly cleansed and moisturized face and then whip out my Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base  as the next step. This is a soothing and hydrating product that brightens the complexion and corrects the skin tone without looking like your wearing the additional layer of makeup. This is essentially an instagram filter for your face - it maximizes the overall finish of your foundation resulting in a much more skin-like finish. Best of all is it comes in two universal shades, I use 02 Champagne because I think this one has a bit more coverage. After my primer is applied, I go in with a dollop or two of the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet (full review to come) and buff that into the skin until the desired coverage is achieved. 

The last step here is super simple, requires no tools, and makes a world of difference in terms of that illumination we're going for. Why yes, I am talking about the RMS Beauty Living Luminizer. If you can't tell by the close up of the product I provided, it has a really fine, yet sheeny iridescence and the texture of a light gloss. It blends seamlessly and is almost undetectable (unless you are way too close for comfort) on the skin, yet does the trick of adding that dewiness we all love. I apply it by lightly tapping my finger in a "C" shape starting from below my pupil along my cheekbone - and ending above my brow in the same manner. I also tap the excess on my cupid's bow and on the inner corner of my eye for that extra dose of, "Hey Guys, I did sleep last night - promise!"

What are products that you rely on for a glow in a hurry?
