Of course, I am aware that genetics, a consistent skincare routine, beauty treatments, and maybe sheer luck are factors that I need to look at. Plus, pores, skin texture, acne, and oiliness are normal. It can be challenging to score a smooth, glowing complexion. But, I really believe that there must be a way to cheat the system.
After much trial and error, I discovered easy ways to score glowing skin. Trust me, these tips don’t demand a lot of time and effort. Best of all, you don't need to do all of them! You can simply choose one trick.
Excited? Check out my suggestions below:
Dab a creamy highlighter.
Hands down, this is the easiest way to fake a glow. Apply a sheer layer of cream-based or liquid highlighter on top of the cheekbones and lids. Choose a formula with micro shimmers so it would look natural.

Grab a luminous face powder.
This trick is my favorite of all because it’s really made for lazy girls! Simply buff a glow-boosting face powder all over your face to fake a flawless, radiant complexion.

Learn to love face oils.
Okay, this one is controversial. When you live in a tropical country, it’s normal to stay away from icky things like oils. But, let me tell you that if you find the right formula for your skin type, you won’t stop using it. A thin layer of face oil will grant you an angelic glow.

Try a dewy moisturizer.
If face oils are too much for you, go for an oil-free moisturizer. This grants an all-over soft, dewy glow that will lead people to say, “Blooming ka, girl!”

Reach for a tinted sunscreen.
Girl, if you haven’t tried tinted sunscreens or skin tints, you’re missing out on a lot! These lightweight bases even out the skin tone and create a second-skin dewy finish.
