5 Best Makeup Products to Fake a Glowing Complexion

5 Best Makeup Products to Fake a Glowing ComplexionAlthough we all crave and do our best to achieve that ‘lit from within’ glowing complexion, sometimes it’s just not possible to get that JLO glow without a little help from the wonder that we know and love as makeup. Of course, we should really try to nourish our skin with the best products for our skin type, layer them in the right order – due our due diligence. However, we all know that that flawlessly radiant complexion is a difficult feat to achieve, so why not fake it ‘till you make it?

Makeup companies have done wonders in the ‘glow’ department, especially since this season is all about the glow – from highlighters, glittery and metallic eyeshadows to ultra-shiny holographic lip glosses. Let’s face it – this is the year of the glow, so let’s see which products we can snag and let it shine, let it shine.

A cult favorite

 A cult favorite

This first product is amazing on so many levels, but since it has been on the market for so long and already holds an iconic status, people rarely mention it anymore, which is a shame, because it deserves to be in the spotlight at all times. The product we’re talking about is the MAC Strobe Cream. It comes in a variety of shades – to suit different skin types and glow preferences, but this is where things get interesting.

This is one of those amazing double-duty beauty products that can be used in so many different ways. As its first and foremost, as a moisturizer it nourishes the skin and can be used alone to give you that illusion of a natural glow because it contains iridescent particles, so even when you decide to go makeup free, or foundation-free for the day, just slather this goodness, and glow, baby, glow. You can also mix it into your foundation to make it less matte and more radiant, and finally, it’s so good that you can actually apply it to the high points on top of the already finished face to add to the glow intensity, and unlike the powder highlighters, it won’t give away the fact that you’ve used something at all as it blends into the skin like a charm.

Lit from within Lit from within

No matter what foundation you’re wearing, as we all have come to know, a primer can make or break your look. Now, many people opt for the mattifying ones, but the trick to the ‘lit from within’ makeup look that won’t even require powder highlight is a radiance boosting primer. There are many amazing ones on the market, but the one that we have fallen head over heels with is the Auto Pilot Radiance-Boosting Primer by Napoleon Perdis. It promises a Cinderella-esque radiance, and boy, does it deliver.

You can play with it in multiple ways – as a primer that will ‘beam’ through your foundation. What is more, if you want that ‘visible from space’ glow, you can also gently dab it over your foundation anywhere you want – the tops of your cheekbones, the tip of the nose, under the brow-bone – just take it and see where your glow goals take you.

Don’t underestimate a good foundation Don’t underestimate a good foundation

As said, the makeup industry has done a darn good job in the radiance department, and foundations are no exception. Now, there are plenty of sheer to medium coverage radiant foundations, and we have put many to the test, but the one that won by a landslide is the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Many foundations out there claim they’ll give you a look of ‘your skin but better’ but this one actually lives up to the promise.

It evens out your complexion flawlessly, giving you that baby-smooth radiance – especially with the right primer, and the best thing about it, you look impeccable but no one could ever tell you’re wearing foundation. If the JLO glow complexion is what you want, this is your product. It does come with quite the price tag, but a little goes a long way, so this truly is a great investment.

 More, more, more  More, more, more

If you want to glow like a goddess, but still don’t know how to make those powder highlighters work without highlighting your fine lines and end up looking cakey, stick or drop highlighters are here to your rescue. We’ve tested out numerous ones, and as we couldn’t pick just one, we’re giving you two incredible options. Number one belongs to Fenty Beauty’s Shimmer Skinsticks.

These babies are so creamy, you can apply them using a sturdy brush or just gently dab on your high points, and they melt into the skin like a charm. There are different shades – the most neutral being the Confetti. It’s an iridescent opal shade that will give you those slight ‘unicorn vibes’ and you can even apply it before your foundation and the specs will beam through. The other product is the Iconic London Illuminator – which is a liquid highlighter. This will give you a glow so intense, the world won’t be able to handle it. You can go for the more subtle usage – use your beauty blender and dab on highpoints, or add a few drops in your foundation for a glow that just doesn’t quit.

Seal the deal Seal the deal

Settings sprays are supposed to hold everything in place, and they do – some more some less successfully. However, once we heard MAC was dropping a glowy version of the FIX+ called Fix+ (Shimmer), we simply had to give it a try. Just like the original, it doesn’t disappoint in the setting department, but the pearlescent particles with which it’s infused give you that all-over glow, but not like you’re covered in body glitter, just like you’re naturally radiant. And, much like the old one, you can wear it as a setting spray, or simply put on your new favorite strobing moisturizer, spritz Fix+ generously and be the ultimate glowing girl of summer.

Should I Hire A Cleaner for My Home?

House cleaning is one of those jobs which doesn’t require any particular skills or knowledge. However, it requires a lot of time and effort. Some people insist on cleaning their own house because they have the time.

On the other hand, there are people who don’t have the time, or feel like their time can be put to a better use. For these people, there are companies such as Clean Corp which offer a variety of professional cleaning services.

If you are on the edge about contacting a professional cleaning agency, read on through this article to see what a full house cleaning entails and how much time and effort it will require. Should I Hire A Cleaner for My Home

The Bathroom

For many, cleaning the bathroom is enough to convince them to hire a professional. Cleaning experts claim that you need to scrub your toilet every week or so, whereas your shower needs this treatment twice a month.

Not to mention the sink, all of the faucets, the mirror, the floor and the walls of your bathroom which also need to be dealt with at least as often. The amount of time you’d need to put into cleaning everything is just shocking, but the alternative is a dirty bathroom, which is objectively worse.

Professional cleaners are paid to do this kind of work and they do a good job of it. And you can take over and keep it relatively tidy until the next visit by the cleaner.

Dusting Everything

The dust is going to gather on your things no matter how clean you keep your house, that’s just a fact. A lot of the dust actually comes from our skin and hair cells, so it is unavoidable.

Dusting your home, although an easy task, takes a lot of time, especially nowadays when our homes are about 50% bigger than they used to be just 50 years ago. Not dusting is certainly an option for a week or maybe two; that is, if neither you nor anyone in your house are allergic to dust which is becoming rare.

The Floors

Just as the amount of surfaces you need to dust has become bigger over the years, so is the area of our floors. Most of our homes nowadays are at least on two levels with 20+ rooms, and all of them need to be cleaned.

What’s more, it’s very likely that you don’t have the same type of flooring in all of your rooms. Your bathrooms are tiled, as is probably your kitchen and maybe your hallway. On the other hand, your living room could be hardwood and your bedrooms probably have a carpet on them.

All of the different surfaces require different products, different kinds of cleaning which all takes a lot of time and preparation.

Professional Cleaners Are, Well, Professionals Professional House Cleaners

Just as you are good at what you do for a job, so too are the cleaners. They have enough experience with cleaning that they are able to do the job a lot quicker than you would. They are probably more skilled at it than you as well. Professional cleaners know a few tricks about easier and more durable cleaning practices which will save them time, and make your home cleaner for longer.

You can opt for different types of cleaning, as seen here https://www.cleancorp.biz/our-services/, so you always know what to expect of the cleaner.

Even though you can clean your house yourself, you need to ask yourself whether you actually want to. Is there something better you can do with your time? Chances are that there is. So take it and hire a professional cleaner now.

How To Manage And Regain Control Of Your Family Finances

If you are worried about the state of your family finances and are feeling increasingly upset and overwhelmed, then it is time for you to rethink how you spend and begin to take steps to make a change not only for your own future but that of your family also. We may all have the best intentions when it comes to managing our finances, but events that are unexpected can throw us off course, such as a redundancy, and unexpected bill or even a home repair project. So, if you are worried about your family finances, then keep these tips to mind to help you to regain control and begin to manage your money effectively. How To Manage And Regain Control Of Your Family Finances

Break it down

If you are spending more than you are earning, then it is up to you to begin to break your finances down and regain control of your outgoings. You could start to write a list, or use an app to track your monthly expenditure and begin to regain control of just how much you are spending. If you have an expensive month or are struggling to pay your bills this month, then you may need to dip into your savings – but just be sure to replace any money that you borrow and have a laid back and less expensive time during the next few weeks. Once you have begun to track and monitor what you are spending you will notice trends, such as your morning Starbucks that are adding up and ultimately costing you dearly in the long term.

Tackle your debts

If you have been putting off paying your debts for the past few months, or are unsure where to start so that you do not have to cover a huge amount of interest, then it could be time for you to seek financial advice and dig deep so that you can finally pay off any credit cards or money that you owe. Start by listing out your debts and make sure that you set up a monthly payment amount that is easy for you to track and manage so that you can slowly begin to regain control of any money that you owe. Once you begin to pay your debts, you will feel a lot less anxious, plus you can soon begin to start planning to save money for the longer term.

Consider investing

Once you have regained control of your family finances and are finally debt free, then you can begin to consider ways to invest and actually make money back. Consider tools such as betterment returns to help you to get the financial advice that you need. Put aside some money each month, so that you can soon buy your dream house or take your entire family on vacation.

If you are looking to regain control of your family finances, then remember that it is never too late to make a change for the better. Break down what you owe, tackle your debts and consider using investments so that you are soon back on track and ready to enjoy your hard-earned money.
