No matter the time of year or the makeup trends that come and go, glowing skin is always in style. I've tried for years to achieve luminous, glowing skin, trying every foundation, highlighter, moisturizer and so on to make my skin look the most radiant possible. After much trial and error, I've finally nailed down three key steps to achieving that perfect glow. This routine is truly compatible with any skin type, including even the most sensitive of skin like mine. Since creating this glowy makeup regimen, I have turned family and friends from all ages and skin types onto this routine and it has proved to be fail proof for each and every one of them. I have not come across a routine similar to this anywhere so I felt it even more of a reason to share it with you all!  

3 Steps for a Glowing, Flawless Makeup Routine

1. MAC Strobe Cream (Use the original shade): Use MAC strobe cream as a moisturizer after cleansing your face.
I was honestly shocked at how wonderful of a moisturizer the strobe cream is. It has wonderful, natural ingredients such as green tea extract which minimizes pores. It is very moisturizing but at the same time does not cause my already oily skin to look oily at all. It works better under makeup than any other moisturizer I have ever tried and doesn't bother my extremely sensitive skin. This moisturizer has actually helped keep my acne under control.

2. Laura Mercier Mineral Powder Foundation: After applying moisturizer and concealer, buff the mineral foundation onto the face and neck.
I seriously cannot tell you how wonderful this foundation is. It is nothing like other mineral foundations and is by far the best foundation I've ever come by. I've turned so many people onto this foundation and it works so well on all their different skin types. This foundation will leave your skin looking the healthiest and most radiant possible. It keeps oily skin from looking greasy and makes dry skin look luminous. 

3. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish (I use the shade Soft & Gentle): After applying foundation, apply skin finish to cheek bones, down the center of the nose, on the brow bone under the eyebrow, on the center edge of the top lip and to the inner corner of the eyes. 
This is my favorite highlighter and I love that it comes in a variety of shades to cater to all skin tones. This highlighter can make even the dullest skin glow. It creates the look of naturally dewy, healthy skin. It is definitely the most natural and also long lasting highlighter I've used.
