ACHIEVING THE ULTIMATE SOFT GLAM MAKEUP LOOK
Step 1: Flawless Complexion
Start by creating a flawless base for your soft glam look. Prep your skin with a moisturiser suitable for your skin type, followed by a primer to ensure your makeup stays put throughout the day. The soft glam look is bright and glowy, so an illuminating primer is the perfect way to ensure your makeup keeps a pearlescent finish. Apply a lightweight silky foundation that matches your skin tone, using a damp sponge, your fingers, or a dense blurring foundation brush to blend it seamlessly. Conceal any blemishes or under-eye circles with a creamy concealer and set your base with a translucent powder in areas that crease such as the undereyes, and areas that get oily such as your forehead. This will help you to strike the perfect balance between being dewy, not oily.
Step 2: Add Warmth and Femininity to Your Face
Go in with a warm bronzer and rosy or peachy blush that will give you a flirty, feminine, youthful look. Lightly dust bronzer containing a bit of shimmer around your cheekbones, temples, forehead, and jawline to create a ‘snatched’ appearance and sweep blush across your cheeks and temples for a natural sun kissed look. Highlighter at the high points of the face, such as the cheekbones, brow bone, and the bridge of your nose, is also a must to achieve a radiant glow that is iconic for the soft glam look.
Step 3: Soft and Defined Eyes
For the soft glam eye look, choose neutral eyeshadow shades that complement your skin tone. Start by applying a light, shimmery shade all over the lid. Then, define the crease with a slightly deeper matte shade, blending it gently for a seamless transition. Apply a subtle shimmer on the inner corners of your eyes to brighten and open them up. Feel free to go in with some eyeliner but keep the line subtle. Blend it out using black or dark brown eyeshadow to keep things soft as any harsh lines can take away from the soft glam effect. Finish with a few coats of lengthening mascara combined with lash fibres, to define your lashes without going too dramatic.
Step 5: Pouty Lips
Finish your soft glam look with a soft and feminine lip colour. Opt for a neutral or rosy shade that complements your natural lip colour. You want to enhance your lips, so beginning with a lip liner can help to define and exaggerate your lip line, as well as create a long-lasting base for other lip products. Choose a creamy lipstick to add some shine and hydration and follow with a lip gloss for a fun shimmery finish. A stick highlighter is also a lovely finishing touch. Add it to the centre of your lips and cupids bow to enhance your lips even more.
Soft glam makeup allows you to embrace your natural beauty while adding a touch of sophistication and elegance. By focusing on keeping your base warm and radiant, and defining your features you can achieve a stunning soft glam look that leaves you feeling effortlessly glamorous. So, embrace your femininity and get ready to turn heads with your soft glam makeup masterpiece.
