I am about to talk about something that I have never heard of until this month. It’s a new beauty trend in 2019 called yoga skin. The famous makeup artist, Sara Hill invented this technique late last year and it is slowly blowing up. She claims it’s a technique to make the skin look lit from within. It’s all about being healthy, glowing, hydrated, radiant, sheer and natural. I’m going to dive right into the steps.
Cleanse and prep your skin as normal. Let your skincare absorb fully before adding the next step.
Apply a small amount of primer (silicone free)
3-4 Pumps of your favorite foundation liquid. Preferably Sheer/Medium (water based). No full cover.
One drop of your favorite skincare facial oil
One drop of strobe cream or Liquid highlighter. Golden tones work best
For super shine One small drop of Glow drops (this step is optional)
Massage into your skin using your hands; this does many things. It gets the circulation flowing, relaxes you, de-puffs, and makes the base sit better too. Build up in layers on top until you are happy with the coverage created. I would recommend allowing time between layers.
Add a small amount of liquid concealer only in the areas you wish more coverage like under
eyes, spots or around the nose. Do not overdo this step!
You can lightly powder to set concealer. Add cream blush and cream bronzer if you wish. And
you can set your face overall with powder too, use a small fluffy brush to do this or puff and
keep the powder to a minimum and sheer.
If you wish to use setting spray make sure it’s alcohol free to give further hydration.
Look at that GLOW! Honestly, I don’t look like this when I come out of yoga, I’m normally pretty red and splotchy but I’m not mad about this. If these steps feel like too much, don’t stress! Just add a little facial oil to your base and then keep everything as sheer as possible. If you have oily skin or don’t like to look shiny, this is not the look for you!
