How-to: achieve that luminous, pregnant-lady glow
I know that with the recent release of super-funny flick What To Expect When You’re Expecting, all of those old myths about pregnant ladies with super glowy, ultra-illuminated skin have been exposed as fibs – but I must say, I’m not convinced. I still think pregnant women have a certain radiance to their complexions (even if they beg to differ) that just can’t be copied. Up until now.
So when bh member Verdanica started this forum thread asking how she could get a super radiant complexion for her wedding, I set out to help – and boy did I come up with a few gems…
So whether you’re an average girl like me, looking for a product that will provide you with a little more radiance, or an expecting mum-to-be, wondering where your instant pregnancy glow is hiding, believe me when I say, it can be faked… and pretty well at that.
All you need is a radiance-enhancing product. A shimmery beacon of hope that can make you look as profoundly luminous as Gisele after a workout. (Yes, even when she sweats she looks hot – damn her!)
Want to know how it’s done? Simple. You can either replace your regular moisturiser with one that contains light-reflecting particles, or you can go that extra mile and incorporate another step into your make-up routine, like a liquid illuminator, to seal your glowy status.
