How To Create A Subtle Glam Look For A Night Out

If your everyday make-up routine consists of natural, “barely there” tones and neutral shades, we’re sure you’ll be a fan of a subtle glam look. It’s a softer approach to the typical glam we see on the red carpet at awards events, but just as gorgeous. Think diffused textures, slight shimmers and more skin texture.

Your step-by-step guide to a subtle glam look

First, prep the skin with a hydrating primer. Primers help to create a flawless-looking base before foundation application by smoothing out the skin. The wear of your foundation is also extended through use of a primer. Choose one with a built-in SPF for additional sun protection. Add a pea-sized amount of the product to your fingers and apply it evenly to the face.

Next up is a liquid, medium-coverage foundation. Use a foundation brush to blend and buff the product to get an airbrushed, seamless finish. Pick a brush with soft but dense bristles for easy application. Instead of swiping the foundation, use a stamping motion to press the foundation into the face. If you have dark circles or blemishes you’d like to hide, opt for a creamy concealer as well. Choose one that’s two shades lighter than your foundation shade. Dot the product onto your areas of concern and blend. After that, reach for a silky powder blush to apply on the apples of your cheeks. If you want more warmth and sculpture, use a bronzing powder.

Finally, eyes are the prize when it comes to a subtle glam look. Swap dark smokey-eye hues for bronzey browns. Just when you think you’ve blended your eyeshadow enough, blend again. Diffuse the edges to get rid of any solid lines and create an ethereal effect. Skip the volume and concentrate on length when it comes to lashes by applying a lengthening mascara. Keep the lips neutral with a high-shine, moisturising nude lipstick to maintain hydration.

Close your eyes, add a few spritzes of setting spray and you’re good to glow!
