When winter comes around it’s common for skin to freak out, (you can thank harsh winds, freezing temperatures and stuffy central heating for that). Flaking and redness can all be alleviated with a good skincare regimen but restoring radiance requires a little extra make-up magic. Here at Code8, we have a selection of glow-boosting products that can help to bring a lit-from-within look back to your face this January. From concealers to highlighters, we’ve got you covered.
First, time to cleanse
Glowing skin products work best on a clean base, so first remove any dirt residue, dryness or flaking by sweeping a cotton pad soaked in our signature Decode Make-Up Remover all over your face. The three-in-one formula is enriched with thermal water and aloe vera for a soothing feel, while coconut oil, macadamia nut oil and squalane nourishes your skin and add moisture. Your face will feel nice and clean with no oily film or uncomfortable stickiness. You now have the perfect canvas for your illuminating products. No dryness in sight!
Next, create a glowing base
Loved by makeup artists and editors (like @andrewgallimakeup), our Radiate Beauty Balm has been used backstage at shows SS20 such as Lanvin, Peter Pilotto, David Koma and Emilia Wickstead. It’s popular because it gives a light and natural coverage that looks like your skin but better. (It also won the Attracta Beauty Award 2019 for Best Illuminating Cream for Skin Radiance!).
Powered by revolutionary Knead Technology, the lightweight formula is easily spreadable and dries fast with a velvety finish. It also contains pectin and argan seed oil to nourish the skin and leave it looking radiant. We suggest applying a fingertip amount all over the face for a natural, healthy glow.
Then, conceal dark spots and blemishes
Dark circles can stop your complexion from looking radiant, so use our buildable Seamless Cover Concealer (full of light-diffusing pigment spheres) to brighten your undereye area. Enriched with active ingredients like glucan biopolymer, this long-wearing, hydrating formula gives skin a professionally retouched look that instantly brings radiance to your face.
Finally, add shimmer
Highlighting powders are great for adding shimmer to your face, but lots of them can also leave you looking cakey. Luckily, our Award-winning Highlight HD Palette in Between Two Women is different. It’s made out of Knead technology with pre-baked pearls, olive oil, macadamia oil and white tea extract, so it nourishes the skin while also increasing radiance for maximum light-reflecting power. Use a fluffy brush to dust it on the high points of your cheeks, the tip of your nose and your cupid's bow for a beautifully golden look. Wet the brush for an intense look.
