Welcome to the new KC!

Hello Darlings!
Thank you so much for your patience the past two weeks while my site was under construction! I hope you all enjoy the new design and that it is much easier for you to navigate around! I was lucky enough to work with some amazing people in order to create it! I will be posting much more often now and delivering a lot more product reviews! If you have any requests on what you would like to learn or see on the new Kissable Complexions, please comment below!  Today I am going to list how I got this extra GLOWING skin! I feel like dewy, glowy, shimmering skin is on everyones wanted list right now, below I have listed my favorite way to achieve this look!

CAUTION: This look may cause serious blindness to all those around you! Glow on…

1. Start with a clean, fresh face! I like to do a light masque in the morning so that my skin feels refreshed and super smooth for my makeup application! I use Skin Ceuticals B5 Masque 20 min before application. Do not apply a moisturizer to the skin, this will only make your glow skin look like oily skin.

2. Apply a smoothing primer! My favorite primer at the moment is Salma Hayek Nuance Smooth Start . I give this product a 7 out of 10. It really hides the pores on the nose and gives a perfecting look to the skin before foundation application. Apply a pea size amount to the entire T-zone.

3. Now it is time to start the makeup! My first trick to creating a “Dewy” look to the skin is mixing a dime size amount of foundation with a dime size amount of liquid highlighter. I like to use the NYX “Gleam” Illuminator. This illuminator has a champagne colored shimmer to it, perfect for every skin tone. You can find it at Ulta or online. {7-10$}

  • The foundation I used for this look is a new favorite: Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super-Charged in “42” ($48) – This foundation is great for this look because it has a very creamy consistency. I would suggest it for those that do not suffer from sensitive-skin for it is fragranced pretty strongly. It gives a full coverage look to the skin and looks very smooth when applied. Mix your illuminator and foundation together on the back of your hand and apply. I used my beauty blender and pressed it into my skin, and down my neck until I got a medium-full coverage look.
  • The concealer is next, I used a new product to my collection: Hourglass Hidden Corrective in “Natural” {$40}. The great thing about this product is that it comes in a stick form, so it is really easy to apply it straight under the eyes, down the center of nose, on the chin. Use the Beauty Blender to blend it in.
  • The Powder I used for this look was an illuminating powder to enhance that glow even more: Cover FX “medium” – lightly dust this all onto the skin by pressing your brush lightly so that you are not buffing it into the skin.
  • Blush is an important step to creating the perfect glow as well, I like to use a shimmer blush: Frankie Rose “Venetian Rose” – This is a shimmer pink/berry blush, apply directly to apples of cheeks and sweep upwards.
  • Contour with a matte bronzer so that your entire face is not sparkling- I like to use : Anastasia Contour kit in “Havana” to hollow out my cheekbones, forehead, and define my nose and jawline. I like to use the Japonesque contour brush, It is perfcectly shaped for this part. 
  • Extra highlight: Lastly with a DRY Beauty Blender I like to press some extra liquid illuminator onto the cheeks- I am in a love affair with Whitening Lightening’s BB Plus Illuminator – this takes highlighting to a whole other level. Dip the end into a small amount and press with the butt of the blender into the highest part of your cheekbones very lightly. ** You can apply liquid after powder if you do it with a light hand.
  • Spray your face with Evian spray or a finishing spray to add that extra amount of moisture and your look is complete!!
