You’ve probably heard about the honey skin trend already. You know, the beauty trend that aims for dewy, fresh, wet-looking skin with a little help from our skincare friends. While it sounds very similar to no makeup-makeup, the honey skin movement believes in using the right skincare in order to accomplish the look, but of course you can always use a little makeup to enhance it. The great thing about this look is how simple yet stunning it is, but remember, at the end of the day it’s all about keeping it natural and radiant, because what matters here is the natural glow. Sounds like something you’d like to try? Then here are some makeup items you should keep handy so honey-skin becomes your new go-to!
Kaja – Roller Glow Roll On
Yes, it’s a tiny little roller. And yes, it’s a highlighter too. This duo-chrome highlighting balm emits a pink pearlescent glow with a golden undertone that I swear looks incredible on any skin shade and type. How does it work? It reflects light so every high on your face will shine bright like a diamond, giving you that natural glow you’re aiming for without caking or drying out your skin. Plus, the unique roller applicator is designed to apply an even, soft-focus glow. Dreamy, right?
Peripera – INK Highlighter
Available in three different shades — purple, pink, and gold — this creamy highlighter is like magic in a bottle that instantly adds light to your skin. It’s so lightweight and glides on so easily you won’t even feel like you’re wearing makeup. The fun part about this one is how it looks different depending on the angle, the light, and your skin’s undertone. It’s kind of like applying a pearl filter over your skin, all so you accomplish the dewy look easily, but with a fun touch.
Troiareuke – Healing Cushion
Well, this is my favorite cushion for a reason. When you start getting a lot of “your skin looks amazing,” you know you’re doing something right. This cushion looks so natural on your skin, it’s actually really hard to tell you’re wearing anything. Its formula not only helps boost hydration levels on your skin, but also acts like a skin corrector, helping calm down inflammation and redness. The best part? Its dewy finish is not sticky or oily at all, which provides you with the perfect honey-skin effect no matter if your skin is dry or oily.
Etude House – Bling Bling Eye Stick (Silver)
A little glitter here, a little glitter there. While natural makeup and glitter aren’t usually a combo, this eye stick can be a superhero when trying to accomplish the honey look. Just one swipe over your eyelids or a little touch on the inner corner of your eyes will give you that extra glow you were missing. Just remember not to layer the product too much. One swipe is more than enough for a natural look!
Too Cool For School – Art Class By Rodin Lumineuse Varnish
This ultimate multi-strobing palette features three different shades: Sparkling, Glow Pink, and Unicorn Blue, which you can mix and match in order to achieve a natural yet impactful honey skin look. The fun part is how you can use them together to get a multi-dimensional look, highlighting your features in different ways: mix Sparkling with Glow Pink to add some volume to your T or C zones, or combine Glow Pink with Blue Unicorn to add some highlights to your skin.
The Saem – Cover Perfection Tip Concealer
Considered one of the best concealers out there, this one’s a keeper both for natural looks or more complex ones. It covers imperfections in such a natural way, you won’t even see it after you apply it. It’s got great coverage with a dewy and natural finish, meaning you can even use it on its own without having to match with foundation or BB cream! Keep this one by your side at all times, and I assure you honey skin will be an everyday thing.
Innisfree – Canola Honey Lip Balm
A big part of accomplishing the honey look is making sure every single spot on our faces is hydrated. For that same reason, we can’t forget about our lips! A nice, moisturizing, non-sticky lip balm will get the job done. This one in particular not only feels great on the lips, but stays put for hours, so your lips will stay protected and dewy-looking all day long.
Moonshot – Jelly Pot (Bronze Champagne)
If you wanna add a fun touch to your look, a light layer of the bronze champagne Jelly Pot shade over your eyelids can be the cherry on top. This eyeshadow has a wet finish, which will add some brightening and glow to your look without you looking too prepared. You can simply use your fingers to spread it over your lids and even use some on your cheeks for an extra touch of glow.
