glo How-To: Barefaced Beauty

14-July-Barefaced.jpg

Are blemishes, redness and acne scars holding you back from trying the barefaced look? It’s time to ignore the idea that you have to have “perfect skin” to try this look. Our lovely model Juli says she avoided following the barefaced trend because  “I have blemishes and redness around my chin that never seems to go away.” To show Juli that a minimal makeup look was possible, we enlisted the help of our National Makeup Artist, Janeena, who helped Juli get the barefaced look using glo minerals Sheer Tint Base.


“Just because this is a sheer foundation doesn’t mean it won't give you adequate coverage. What I love about it is that it covers blemishes and evens out skin tone while still letting your skin’s natural beauty shine through,” says Janeena. On Juli she applied Sheer Tint Base in golden with the Texture Brush to cover blemishes and camouflage redness. Without using any other camouflage, Janeena was able to create a natural, healthy and radiant complexion. Sheer Tint Base delivers a slightly dewy finish while also nourishing and protecting your skin which is why it’s a great choice for the hot summer months!


“I love the final look, it is so natural and I feel confident knowing that I can recreate this look with little effort” says Juli, “It’s perfect for the weekends and work days when I am running late. Knowing that I can achieve such flawless coverage so simply makes my busy life a bit less complicated.”


To create a similar barefaced look follow these steps:


Step 1: Apply Sheer Tint Base using the Texture Brush
Step 2: Apply Blush in innocent to your cheekbones
Step 3: Apply a quick swipe of Eye Shadow in sand pebble across entire lid
Step 4: Apply one coat of Lash Boosting Mascara
Step 5: Finish with Protecting Lip Treatment SPF 15 in champagne punch

2) Moisturizing Must-Have - We love applying Cream Blush when creating a dewy look, which is perfect for balmy summer days. Because the cream based formula adds an extra boost of moisture the result is radiant, healthy look skin!


3) Easy Application - While you can apply Cream Blush with the Cream Blush Brush it can also be applied on-the-go with clean fingers. Simply dot the product on the apples of your cheeks then blend outwards.

Curing 5 Summer Skin Concerns

Curing 5 Summer Skin Concerns


From razor burn to sunburned lips, our skin encounters a wide array of issues as we spend more time outside in the summer. With the big 4th of July weekend quickly approaching, we thought we’d take a closer look at some of the most common summer skin concerns and how to treat them. So pour yourself a glass of lemonade and read these tips on treating common summer skin care issues.
Razor Burn
Shorts and sundresses make shaving in the summer a necessary (and often annoying) task. For those of you who are prone to razor burn we suggest exfoliating with Therapeutic Body Exfoliant before you shave. This will deep clean the follicle to help prevent bumps by lifting away dead skin cells and reducing irritation.  Follow with Therapeutic Body Cream which will soften the appearance of discolored, textured areas and reduce redness. You can also spot treat problem areas with Healing Gel which will help spot treat areas of redness and irritation.

Back Acne
Treating body blemishes and back acne can be a frustrating issue during the summer. The hot temperatures and fun outdoor activities can lead to these pesky, unwanted accessories. We suggest sticking to breathable fabrics and changing out of workout or active wear immediately after heavy perspiration. Back Acne Treatment helps balance excess oil production, reduces inflammation and prevents the growth of acne-causing bacteria. In addition, keeping Clear Complexion pads handy for a quick swipe over problem areas is a great option for your face and body!
Sunburn
We all know the importance of preventing sunburns but if you find yourself with a burn we suggest applying Remedy Gel.  With 1% hydrocortisone Remedy Gel is an anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and irritation.  Another option is the Soothing Gel Mask which cools and calms sensitive or irritated skin with a soothing complex of antioxidants and vitamins.

Eczema
For those who suffer from eczema, the issue probably exists year-round however in summer it becomes more difficult to cover up. The best way to treat eczema is to keep it occluded with an ointment that will prevent any transepidermal water loss. Our Barrier Balm is a rich ointment developed for just such a purpose.  I

Dry, Chapped or Sunburned Lips
Barrier Balm is also the "go to" product for extremely chapped or dry lips. This moisturizing emollient will lock in moisture and accelerate healing.  For conditioning as your lips start to heal, use the Lip Revival which will help the lips start to produce their own moisture for softer, fuller lips.

Hello bright eyes! Our National Makeup Artist, Janeena, compiled an eye-opening list of steps and tricks to help you emphasize your beautiful eyes. Regardless of your eye color or shape, these helpful tips will open and brighten your peepers resulting in eyes that truly POP. Just don’t be surprised when you start hearing “You have such pretty eyes” on the regular!

Step 1: Use a Lid Primer. Not only will a Lid Primer prevent creasing and help your Eye Shadow last all day, but applying an Lid Primer will brighten the entire eye area.

Step 2: Apply a light shade such as Eye shadow in haze across the entire lid.

Step 3: Apply a natural Eye Shadow color, such as mink, in an upward and outward motion to help draw the attention to the highest point on the eye which gives the appearance of more space.

Step 4: Apply Precise Micro Eyeliner in navy along the upper lash line which will make the whites of the eyes appear brighter.

Step 5: Applying Precision Eye Pencil in peach to the lower waterline and inner corner of the eye will help eyes appear more open.

Step 6: Curl lashes for an extra boost of volume.

Step 7: Apply Lash Boosting or Volumizing Mascara to top and bottom lashes for bold lashes.

Step 8 (not pictured): Use Brow Gel in clear to brush eyebrow hair up which broadens the appearance of the lid and opens up the eye area.
