The Glow Down

MANILA, Philippines – Not that we needed another excuse to switch up our beauty regimen but the coming of a new year has us pressing the reset button, with minimalist looks offering a breather from all the glitz and chutzpah of the holidays. But don’t just take our word for it — even the spring 2017 runways seem to have the same train of thought as fashion houses present a clean face for the start of the new season. Cases in point: dewy skin reigns supreme at Stella McCartney, highlighted cheeks and peachy lids imbue soft femininity at Prada, a clear and blooming complexion gives youthful appeal at Band of Outsiders, and an ultra-hydrated visage (with even glossier puckers) reveal a glow-from-within flush at Maison Margiela. But if you can’t shake off the festive feeling just yet, here’s how to get the best of both worlds: after prepping your skin (the key to glowing skin is healthy skin so make sure to cleanse, tone, and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize), sweep shimmering bronze eyeshadow on the lids and swipe on some clear lip gloss for a fresh face that, well, shines.
