Still suffering from "winter face"?

Strobing is the biggest makeup trend of the moment, yet, it's actually just good old highlighting. Thing is, as a whole, the makeup industry seems to be moving away from overdone, excessive makeup looks (guess no one has told the Kardashians), opting for hydrated, dewy, lit-from-within complexions.

Last year, New York Fashion Week gave us this look. Adding shine to temples, cheekbones and eyes became the main focus, giving models minimalist makeup that still left their skin healthy-looking and radiant - hence the lit-from-within trend. It is a gleam, a light, a glow that ultimately gets you noticed, not layers and layers of foundation or contouring lines.

It all starts with skincare

shesintheglow.com noted that makeup genius, Gucci Westman, says that she is a big believer in skin prep. That means making sure your skin is naturally healthy: hydrated, moisturised and exfoliated. She says that she especially believes in the power of the face mask. Don't rely on your makeup to make you look good, skin care is always number one.

According to Instyle.com, actress Kate Hudson gets her glow from her diet of high-quality protein, low-glycemic carbs like broccoli and yogurt and healthy fats, while Jessica Alba credits her radiant skin to exfoliating, using enzymes and gentle acids. Our very own Charlize Theron again relies on microdermabrasion treatments - mainly because of its incredible polishing and purifying qualities.
