Elisse Joson always has a radiant, flawless complexion. Lucky for us, she revealed her insta-glow secrets so we can recreate her look.
1. Prep your skin with a face oil.
The key to any makeup look is a hydrated complexion. Use this lightweight face oil (it will never get shiny!) to plump up your skin and make it ready for makeup!

2. Skip the foundation.
Yup, to get that natural, "Instagram glow" Elisse did not use foundation. She just covered her blemishes—or as she calls them, chismis—by mixing two shades of cream concealer (to get the perfect skin tone match!). Then, she used a brightening concealer for her undereye area.

3. Use a cream blush.
For a dewy flush, a cream blush is your best friend. Elisse applied it on her cheeks and a little bit on her nose to get a sun-kissed effect. ;)

4. Layer your highlighters for *extra* radiance.
Since this look is all about glowing skin, Elisse layered cream and liquid highlighters on the tops of her cheeks to make her face look beaming from within.

5. Define your kilay.
If you, like Elisse, have naturally full eyebrows, you can just use a brow gel to brush up the hairs and make your arches look groomed.

6. Enhance your eyes.
Elisse made her eyes look bigger and more awake by sweeping a dark brown on the crease of her lids. She then dotted a champagne shade on the inner corners of her eyes. For the final step of her eye makeup, She curled her lashes and applied waterproof mascara to emphasize her peepers.

7. Warm up your complexion.
Because Elisse has a pale complexion, she brushed a light bronzer on her cheeks to add warmth to her face. If you're morena, then there's no need for this step—you naturally have a golden glow!

8. Finish the look with more ~glow~!
As a final touch, Elisse layered a tinted lip balm and a bronze-colored gloss to create a juicy pout.
