5 Glam Items Every Woman Needs to Have
Overwhelmed with the hundreds of steps involved in replicating that must have, celebrity glam look!? There’s skin prep, bronzer, highlighter, oh and don’t forget contouring and lashes. No wonder you’re feeling overwhelmed and intimidated by the glam process!
You’ve got your go-to holy grail products you already use, and we don’t want to change that. We’re giving you the five products to ensure a fabulously glam look no matter what other products you choose to pair with them.
Before you touch the makeup
It goes without saying (but we’re saying it anyway): if you start applying makeup without any skin prep, you aren’t going to love the final result. We totally get that not everyone has the time – nor the patience – to indulge in an entire skin sesh every time they get glammed up, so our solution is to jump on the sheet masks, stat. The Skinvitals Glow 2-Step Brightening Mask Treatment is a derma delivery of antioxidants that pack a powerful punch for a re-energised, luminous complexion, and we’re obsessed. Radiant, luminous skin is exactly how you want to start off the glam process.

You want your look to last. The Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch acts as a priming base for foundation, ready to reveal a more even, flawless finish upon application. Think of it like the Benefit Porefessional, but more affordable with instantaneous, yet longer lasting, results.

The “guaranteed glam” essentials
No makeup look is complete without a show stopping lip! We believe in timeless glamour, so our lippy pick needs to reflect just that. A product that seems to be overlooked in the beauty world is the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, and we looove the shade ‘Burnt Spice’, complete with a liquid-suede finish. There’s no denying the versatility of a lip product that matches any skin tone, outfit or occasion, and this one fits the bill.

LINER – “the devil” “it senses fear”… yada, yada… but bear with us! You want to look glam, right? It’s all about changing it up from your everyday look. The Clarins Graphik Ink Liner has a seriously easy to use felt tip applicator and dramatically changes your basic makeup to a standout glam look. Chloe Morello even did a video on how easy it was… and we agree!

The finishing touches
You may think this step is too extra. But “extra-ness” is the objective of getting glam! Here’s the goss: as the northern hem has settled into summer, shimmer sprays have become the new big thing. We’re talking misted sprays with makeup setting abilities and pearlescent, lit-from-within glow, so we can feel like a J-Lo 2.0. And even though we’re shivering in winter, there’s no denying a girl of her glow! The MAC Prep + Prime Fix + Shimmer is our go-to for finishing a glam look and glowing like a goddess!
