Glowy makeup has been trending all year, but it can be particularly hard to achieve in fall and winter. Chillier weather outdoors and using the heater indoors can bring out the dull in the best of us.
Getting the glowy look requires the right products in both your makeup and skin care routine– all of which you can pick up at the drugstore! Keep scrolling to discover drugstore products that will help you achieve peak radiance this winter.
Milani Bright Side Illuminating Primer ($11.99)
Since I prefer satin, or “natural finish” foundations, I look to my primer to add a little boost of glow. The Milani Bright Side Illuminating Primer not only adds a visible brightening effect when under your makeup, but it also contains Vitamin C, ProVitamin B5, Squalane & Jojoba Oil for extra skin care benefits that contribute to a longer lasting radiance.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream ($28.99)
Introducing retinol into your skin care routine can help target a range of skin goals, such as fading fine lines and wrinkles, as well as giving the skin a more fresh and plump appearance. Adding the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream can help you achieve a smooth, fresh glow this winter– even without makeup– and the purified hyaluronic acid in the formula will also help with skin hydration.
elf Cosmetics No Budge Shadow Stick ($5)
I’ve been using the the elf Cosmetics No Budge Shadow Sticks in nearly every makeup look recently. They’re easy to apply and blend all over the lid with just my finger, or use them to highlight the brow bone and inner corner with the pointed tip.
The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil ($9.80)
I started using this oil nightly about 6 months ago and it worked wonders to help me achieve a smooth, clearer, dewier complexion. Rose hip seed oil has so many skin benefits including hydration retention, exfoliation, reducing inflammation, and lightening hyperpigmentation.
Milani Supercharged Multistick in Power Highlight ($9.99)
If you want a dewy highlight, look no further than the Milani Supercharged Multistick in the shade Power Highlight. This adds a glossy sheen to your cheeks with a subtle gold shimmer that catches the light beautifully. It looks great on bare skin or over makeup.
Pixi On-The-Glow Blush ($18)
One of the most viral drugstore blushes of the year, the Pixi On-The-Glow blush offers a beautiful wash of color with a dewy finish. When applied in a thin layer, it gives all day color. Get my best tips on how to use this blush in my review here.
