From the '90s until the early 2000s, matte skin was everything and anything with shine was deemed "not fresh" or "hulas." So, when Hailey Bieber re-introduced the idea of having "glazed donut skin," we immediately got obsessed. Her photos featuring her super dewy skin made us want to embrace our complexion's natural glow even more.

Hailey got the glazed donut skin inspo from a glazed doughnut, aka those KK Original Glazed Doughnuts we all grew up with. As translated to the skin, it describes a soft, plump, and dewy complexion, aka all the qualities that signify healthy skin.

As mentioned earlier, this isn't really the first time "glazed donut skin" became a trend. It's basically another version of "honey skin" and "transparent makeup," "glass skin's" sisters. The only difference is that the complexion is ultra-hydrated and natural skin texture is emphasized. There is no pressure for skin to look perfect, but it should appear nourished.

  2. Apply a lightweight tinted base.

    Then, follow with a skin tint or mix foundation with lightweight face oil or serum. (Elisse Joson's makeup artist, Mark Qua, is a fan of the foundation + face oil trick.)

  3. Conceal on selected areas.

    If you need to hide some blemishes, apply concealer on areas that need extra coverage.

  4. Pump up the dew.

    Use a face gloss or liquid highlighter to add "glaze" to high points of the face: Cheekbones and tip of the nose. But one ~*glazed skin*~ hack we would like you to try is to dab a glossy blush that turns your cheeks into a unique shade of pink.

  5. Go for a gloss or a tinted lip balm.

    Now for that extra youthful touch: Tinted lip balm! Juicy lips add to the ~glazed skin~ effect.
