Dewy dumplings, strobed, glass skin, candlelit, lit-from-within — no matter what you call it, there’s a good chance a radiant complexion is topping your #beautygoals.
A signifier of inner health, the trend might be rooted in wellness — but even if you’re feeling less than your best, there’s a plethora of make-up and skincare products that’ll give you that coveted glow instantly. But with all the choice, deciphering which glow-inducing products to opt for can feel overwhelming. That’s why we asked Alexa Bui — Hong Kong make-up artist and owner of enviably luminous skin — to guide us.
What’s on Alexa’s glowing skin products wish list? ‘Something that won’t clog pores and that’s light in texture, as it’s only one of many layers that I will apply! I also like to find products that I can layer and mix into others, such as the YSL Beauté Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow, which I can blend into foundation,’ says Alexa.
‘My favourite product is Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask. I use it a couple of times a week and I love it! It helps to remove dead, dull skin in a gentler and effective way. It works quickly and isn’t harsh on my sensitive skin. I think having a great complexion is the first step to having beautiful make-up.’
