Q: I have very pale skin. How do I fake a healthy glow?
The good news is that you don't need a lot of makeup to achieve a great-looking glow, says New York makeup artist Paula Dorf. The most important thing is to use all glow products sparingly because too much can be overpowering, says Dorf. For natural-looking results, apply glow products to the apples of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, your hairline and chin. Here are three options that Paula recommends to achieve this look:
1. Tinted moisturizer: Apply all over your face for a low-key glow without a lot of shine. Try: Paula Dorf Jet Set Glow or Nivea Visage Tinted Moisturizer.
2. Cream blush: Use it to add color and shine. (Skip matte powder blushes, which can look flat.) Try: Paula Dorf Cheek Color Cream or Laura Mercier Cheek Colour Stick to Go.
3. Powder bronzer: Brush the powder all over your face and neck for an oil-free glow. Try: Clinique Bronzing Single.
