Relatively expensive, they come in mini bottles or tubes, however, their potency is unmatched! Three of my favorites are mentioned below. I tend to use those after I cleanse and tone my face, and after I apply my favored moisturizer. I apply 3 or 4 drops and slather on my face as a glow enhancing step before wearing makeup, or for the sole purpose to look dewy..

2 || The Blush Rush
A trick that I’ve learned from a very famous MUA for the stars, it was then that I was able to finally decode why celebs are always glowing and looking years younger on the red carpet. One thing in common was their red cheeks that hint a bit of blushing. It’s like they donned this feel-good blusher which gave them a healthy look. Think your face post a yoga session, yes that kind of blush.. Cream blushes formulas serve best serve this purpose. Simply take your two middle fingers, press onto the hollows of your cheeks and blend up from there. Reserve your cheekbones for bronzer and highlighter..

If you want to amp up the glam factor of your natural look, add a lip gloss into the mix. For this, I alternate between 3 fabulous products.. Those offer nutrition and long-lasting hydration rather than just a gloss. Want even more? Swipe some gloss over the eyes too. This step will give you a more full-impact effect with minimal effort and maximum results.
