How-To: Luminous Skin

As much as we love a bold lip or a sultry eye makeup look for a night out, we think glowy, luminous skin looks pretty maj with a cocktail dress too. Today beauty guru Joey Maalouf demonstrates how to nail the look with just a few key products, using Team Zoe staffer Kendall Cohan as his model and muse! 

Get Glowy Skin

The Look

For a gorgeous winter glow, mask flaws with a tinted moisturizer and follow with a shine-enhancing balm or highlighter. Finish the look with soft eyeliner and ultra-lengthening mascara. 

Joey's Tip: Lip conditioner or Vaseline works in a pinch to add shine to temples, cheekbones and the cupid's bow once you've created a flawless base with tinted moisturizer and concealer.

Add Color

The Look

Enhance glossy skin with cream blush for a romantic faux flush that looks great paired with a dramatic dress and bold jewels on a night out. 

Joey's Tip: Add a sheer pink cheek and lip stain into the mix and you've got a sweeter, more romantic look. For real drama, add a dark plum-color lipstick.
