#MakeupInspo: Fresh-skin effect spotted on SS16 runways

If you were following our daily beauty trend reports during the SS16 fashion month, you’ll find that the next big trend hitting the spring summer season is likely the fresh-skin effect: glowing, dewy skin that isn’t excessively piled on with makeup, resulting in an illuminated look. The beauty (excuse the pun) about this trend is that your skin will look amazing even after a long day out, without the cakey finish that most no-makeup makeup looks tend to result in. Here are four products you can use to achieve this effortless look:


Thalgo Silicium Anti-Ageing Foundation 

Instead of only fixing the surface of your skin, Thalgo’s Silicium Anti-Ageing Foundation works skin deep too, thanks to its indulgent texture that’s rich in redensifying marine silicium and hyaluronic acid. This foundation helps correct wrinkles and other imperfections, making your skin appear firmer, smoother and velvety-soft along with a flawless complexion.

Tip: Apply foundation on the forehead, cheeks and neck area, starting from the middle of the face outwards using slightly upward motions. 


Sisley Phyto-Poudre Libre

If your predicament is oily skin that gives off an unwanted sheen throughout the day, Sisley Phyto-Poudre Libre is your new HG product. An ultra-fine loose powder that mattifies and smoothes your skin texture with natural skincare active ingredients such as hibiscus flower and Linden Blossom extract, it preserves your skin’s hydration with a comfortable sensation all day long, akin to a “second skin” that’s natural while working as a makeup setting powder.

Tip: After makeup application, pat the loose powder gently over your face using the powder puff, with more focus on the T-zone. If you prefer lighter coverage, use a brush for application. This can also be used over foundation to extend its hold, and for a matte finish.


Laneige BB Cushion

So you shy away from BB creams, fearing that it can clog your pores and cause your skin to break out. Laneige BB Cushion will prove you wrong, thanks to its ultra-moisturising properties. With whitening ingredients, UV protection and a cooling effect courtesy of its double-layered container which helps isolate the product from heat, this BB cream provides a medium coverage that is natural and non-greasy or shiny.

Tip: Go sans foundation by applying Laneige BB Cushion over your skin with slight tapping motions. 


Bobbi Brown Face Highlighter


Go fuss-free without a brush while using Bobbi Brown Face Highlighter—a liquid highlighter that delivers a sheer, radiant, lit-from-within glow with a formula that’s easy to apply on. The A highlighter always helps with drawing attention to the high points of your face, such as your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.

Tip: This highlighter can be combined with your moisturiser for a subtle radiance, or worn on top of your foundation for a luminous glow.
