Finding the best makeup brush for your foundation will help your application technique and also ensure an even, flawless coverage, for a natural-looking base. To help you find your perfect makeup brush kit, we've put together this handy brush guide.
Are you team cream or team powder blush? Or maybe you love to mix and match? Whatever your preferences, blush can actually be a make or break step in many makeup rituals. Designed to make you look gorgeously glowing and lit from within with a healthy flush of cheek-popping color, on the flip side, too much blush, not enough blending, or a formula that doesn’t work with your skin’s needs can lead to many a blush blunder. Whether bright, neutral, or just a hint of hue, wherever you sit on the blush spectrum, this handy guide will help you find your best blush, and learn some new tricks and techniques too.
Whether dryness, redness, reactivity, itching, or just general inflammation, sensitive skin comes in many forms, and can present challenges when it comes to finding a targeted skincare and makeup ritual that’s right for your unique skin. And, while skincare is often the focus in soothing, calming, and repairing irritated, sensitized complexions, your nourishing practice doesn’t end with your skincare ritual, the makeup you choose matters too.
If 2020 was all about the discovery that skincare is vital to our self-care, then for 2021, skincare trends pick up pace with an array of innovations, ingredients, and intelligent formulations. Stacking our shelfies full of cute-but-ineffective products is firmly out, replaced instead by our new work-smarter-not-harder, skinimalism mood. Think personalized protocols, multi-tasking formulas, authentic clean and clinical skincare, and impactful, performance-packed products.
Glowing skin is always in. And, while we try to make the best of our natural radiance with elevated skincare, most of us need a little something extra to hit those high points and give our complexions that oh-so coveted lit-from-within effect. Faking it ’til we make it, highlighters have been an absolute essential in most beauty kits for some time now, served up in an array of deliciously different finishes and luminosities.
Staying in? Us too! Even though we’re spending more time indoors and close to home, we’re not ditching our makeup routines completely. Rather, we’re paring things down to be more minimal, yet more customized. Keep reading for 5-minutes-or-less no-makeup makeup looks for whatever activities you have scheduled on your calendar (or for spur of the moment activities)!
Trends are trends for a reason. They come and go with each season and they’re helpful for getting you out of your comfort zone.

Keep reading for our favorite spring beauty trends for 2020!

For as much effort as we put into doing our makeup, it’s alarming how quickly it can all melt away. When sun, heat and humidity mix with powders and creams on your face, it’s usually not a good sign, but rest assured, we have the top summer makeup tips from our resident experts to help keep everything in place.
Summer isn’t just a season, it’s a lifestyle. From the clothes, to the activities, to the long, sunny days, we love being able to swap our snow clothes for swimsuits and enjoy more time outdoors. In the same way you swap out your wardrobe, summer is the perfect time to swap out products. Don’t do anything drastic (like changing your ENTIRE routine) but take a good look at the products you’re using and see if maybe a few can stand an upgrade to compete with the heat, sweat and sun.
In the world of beauty, one of the most important categories frequently goes overlooked and that’s brushes. Using the correct brush for the look you’re trying to achieve can drastically change your outcome. Think of brushes as your tools- you wouldn’t use a screwdriver to hammer in a nail, would you? The same can be said for using a densely packed, full coverage brush to apply concealer- it won’t quite turn out the way you want.
If you have oily skin, you know how critical it is to find makeup that won’t slide off your face by noon. Normally, you may gravitate to all powdered products but that doesn’t always have to be the case, as you’ll see below. Before you begin your beauty routine, make sure your skin is properly prepped and moisturized. Contrary to popular belief, hydrating oily skin can actually help regulate oil production, meaning less shine throughout the day. Enough about skincare, let’s get to the fun stuff- makeup!
Expanding our foundation shade range is something we at Glo have been working on for a while. If you read our recent Beauty Trends post, you’ll remember us mentioning shade range expansion as more than just a trend. Instead, it is a step towards greater inclusivity in an industry that prides itself on self expression. This is something that we plan to continue working on but are thrilled to announce that our two top-selling foundations, Pressed Base and Luminous Liquid Foundation SPF 18 are now available in additional shades.
It’s April- the sun is shining, spring is blooming and outdoor patios are calling your name.

Whether it’s rain, tears, humidity or sweat, these five products promise to stay in place as long as you need them to.
