One of the Spring’s beauty trend is the cult of Shine-On-Purpose. Also called “post-gym” skin, “raw” skin or “nightclub” skin, dewy glow is something we will actively pursuing this spring and summer!

Don’t worry this minimalist trend has been experimented! Building on the catwalk for seasons, the trend has been wholeheartedly embraced by both models and the it girls.  To be honest it’s the easiest “trend” around.

Good skincare is of course the base of any great beauty look, but with the enduring popularity of bare-faced looks it has become more of a focus than ever. Sarah Chapman‘s Skinesis line was used to achieve a radiant complexion. Sunday Riley debuted its Pro Cleanse line backstage at Victoria Beckham for squeaky-clean skin, before hydrating with one of its stellar oils for a balmy glow. And if further glowiness was required? The products that cropped up again and again were the four new shade extensions of MAC’s cult Strobe Cream – proving that (whether you like it or not), strobing is definitely a thing.

Here are our tips to getting it right.

-Treat yourself to a good mask, taking into account your skin type. Those with oily skin might find that a gentle clay mask. You can try Cleanance Mask  by Avène. This 3-in-1 clay mask turns into a scrub to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and absorb oil and visibly reduces the appearance of skin blemishes.)

-Drink lots of water. If you’re dehydrated, your skin is dehydrated – and it shows.

-Take time massaging your moisturiser into your skin in the morning. Use gentle upwards and outwards motions to ensure products are fully absorbed and to boost blood circulation. Your skin will thank you.

-Think about how little make-up you can get away with and go with that. This trend is all about letting your real skin show through so the fewer layers, the better.

-Choose sheer formulas and take your skin concerns into account. If you’re worried about uneven skin tone then a lightweight foundation will offer subtle coverage while still letting your complexion shine, whilst a good concealer (Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer) will be key for those keen to cover up dark circles or rogue blemishes without resorting to heavy foundation.

-Whilst a healthy, post-workout-style shine is the goal, there is a limit. If by 3pm you’re starting to look more greasy than glowing, dust a little of MAC blot powder across your T-zone. It subtly takes down shine without leaving skin matt, giving a radiant finish that stops short of a mirror-like forehead.

-If you already have exemplary skin: Do. Nothing. To plaster make-up onto already-perfect skin is the equivalent of not appreciating a super-fast metabolism until it’s too late – make the most of it. Just take time over your skincare regime, add a slick of mascara and lip balm, and go. It’s the most modern, quickest and cheapest approach to the biggest beauty trend of the moment.
