Enhancing Your Features: Glow Makeup Techniques

Glow-in-the-dark makeup is a fun and playful way to add a little extra to your makeup look. It’s famous for Halloween, but you can do it anytime! If you’re considering glow makeup, this guide will help you start.

What is face glow makeup?

You’ve probably heard the expression “glowy face” previously, but what’s the significance here?

A glowy face isn’t a shiny face. It’s a healthy, radiant look that comes from within–not from layers of makeup or SPF products. When you have a natural glow, it gives an impression of youthfulness and vitality. And with the right products and techniques, we can all achieve this look at home!

How do you get a glowy face?

There are many ways to get a glowy face. You can use a highlighter, setting powder, and bronzer. Foundation and primer are also helpful for achieving this look.

Highlighters are great for adding a subtle sheen of light onto your cheekbones, nose, or brow bone. A good rule of thumb is to use one shade lighter than your skin tone so it doesn’t look unnatural when applied over foundation or concealer (which will be explained later).

Setting powders come in various forms: loose powder, pressed powder, and mineral-based formulas like Jane Iredale’s Translucent Loose Mineral Powder ($36). The purpose of these products is twofold: they help keep oil at bay while creating a smooth finish on top of the foundation so that no visible pores appear through the application; they also act as an absorber for excess shine caused by sweat or humidity throughout the day so you don’t end up looking like a disco ball by lunchtime!

The best products for a glowy face

  • Highlighter: If you want a glowy face, the first step is to use a shimmery highlighter. This can be applied with your fingers or a brush and will give your skin an instant boost of radiance.
  • Shimmery face powder: A shimmery face powder will add definition and depth to your cheekbones without making them look too intense or overdone. A few swipes of this product are all you need!
  • Shimmery blush: Adding some color to the apples of your cheeks will complement the rest of your makeup nicely by giving off an innocent flush that isn’t too obvious but still gives off that “I just got back from vacation” look (if only!). Be careful not to overdo it–a little goes a long way when it comes down to applying makeup products like these!

Top tips for glowing skin on your face

There are a lot of different ways to get that glow. Here are some tips:

  • Use a highlighter. Highlighters can be liquid, powder, cream, or stick and come in many shades. They’re used on top of your cheekbones to define them and make them stand out more than the rest of your face. This can also help give an illusion that you have smaller cheeks if they’re not very visible in photos due to lighting or angles!
  • Use blush as well as or instead of a highlighter sometimes, too–it depends on what kind of look you’re going for! Blush is another way to add color (and thus brightness) back into our faces without making anyone look like they have clown makeup all day long; however, it’s essential not too much because nobody will know what kind of person lives behind those thick layers.

Glow-in-the-dark makeup doesn’t have to be scary or demanding; it needs some understanding and practice

You can get glowy skin with some essential products and a little effort. It might take a few tries to get it right, but your face will look amazing once you do!

Ever wonder what glowy skin feels like? Let me tell you: incredible! The best part about this look is that it looks so natural on everyone, no matter their skin tone or complexion–it’s like having an inner light shining from within your face!


We hope this article has helped you understand what glow-in-the-dark makeup is and how it works. It’s not as hard or scary as it may seem, but perfecting your technique requires practice and understanding. The best way to start with glow-in-the-dark makeup is by experimenting with basic designs like stars and hearts on yourself or friends before moving onto larger ones like an entire face!
