Dew You: 5 Products You Need For Glass Skin | Clozette


We're all fans of the glowing, radiant skin many Koreans are known for. This coveted complexion also referred to as glass skin has even sparked the interest in an extensive skincare routine — from seven to 12 steps. But did you know that you can reach your glow goals by using five products? Yes! The key is in keeping your skin hydrated. So, ahead, we're giving you non-negotiables to add to your routine to ensure you get glass skin, as nominated by our panel of beauty experts for the 2018 Clozette Beauty Awards.


A moisture booster




Hydrated skin is synonymous to glass skin. So make sure you have one that does the job or even works overtime. For fans of moisturisers that are lightweight and don't give the skin a smothered feeling, belif True Cream - Aqua Bomb, Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer are great picks. If you're on the dry side and wants something that's more on the creamy side, take the Dr. Wu Extra Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid and the Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator for a spin.


A super anti-ager




Aside from looking moisturised, glass skin also appears smooth and without lines. So invest in an anti-ager that will deliver. If you're looking for something that's light but potent, try the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II and Re-Erth Multi-Targeted Elixir. If you want something that has a bit more body, try the Astalift In-Focus Cellactive Serum and the Clarins Double Serum. If you want something that's more on the cream side, get the Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Power Night Cream.


A hydration hero




Got more than 30 minutes to spare on your routine? Definitely add a hydrating mask to the mix to boost your skin's glow. The Dr. Jart+ Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution, For Beloved One Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturising Bio-Cellulose Mask, Senka Perfect Aqua Rich Extra Moist Mask, For Beloved Girl Extreme Moisture Mineral Cloud-Silk Mask, and innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask - Green Tea are great for the extra hydration you need.


An instant rejuvenator




By mid-day, our skin will tend to get dry. But we can't really go ahead and do our routine all over again. So we need a quick fix. For that, we need an instant rejuvenator in the form of a hydrating mist. Our picks? The Herbivore Rose Hydrating Face Mist; Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray; Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater; Pixi Glow Mist and The Body Shop Rose Dewy Glow Face Mist



A sun protector




Don't waste all the effort you've made by letting the sun damage it. Make sure you keep your hydrated, glowing skin at its prime by protecting it from the sun — while barely feeling like you put sunscreen on. Our lightweight favourites include the Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen FX SPF50 PA++++, FANCL Sunguard 50+ Protect UV, Biore UV Perfect Bright Face Milk SPF50+ PA++++, Creme Simon Daily Defense UV Protector SPF50 and Hera Sun Mate Daily SPF35/PA++++.

"Anyone who knows me knows that I more often than not wear all-black. I've been trying to keep up with my goal of injecting colours into my wardrobe, though, so I'm eyeing this Demi Dial watch from Olivia Burton's Celestial Collection. While the straps are still black, the watch's face has romantic, rose-hued whimsical flowers that will give a nice pop of colour to a monochromatic look."

"I've always had an obsession with boots even before they became mainstream, so this gorgeous pair of Kyoto Ankle Boots from Phillip Lim definitely stood out to me the first time I saw it. It's easy to pair with any type of look. This definitely makes it to my wishlist, especially when talking about travel outfit must-haves. Plus, I believe the wooden block heel is a smart choice for providing that much-needed height boost without compromising comfort."

"When it comes to personal style, you could say that I'm the living embodiment of the girly-girl cliche. I love wearing dresses, skirts, knits and cute shorts. My wardrobe never has a shortage of floral and pastel-coloured pieces. To upgrade my style, I'd say I need to up my accessorising game. To start, I'm setting my sights on this super adorable Bunny Mini Bag from LOEWE that features a cute gingham print and a faux fur tail. It goes well with my floral sundresses and pastel sandals."

"I'm completely obsessed with PANDORA's latest collection of mesh-textured bracelets the Reflexions. This bracelet, which is available in gleaming sterling silver, 18k gold-plated PANDORA Shine and blush-pink PANDORA Rose along with an array of flattering and sleek clip-on charms, exudes a modern femininity that fits my personal style. It gives a luxurious touch to the everyday look. I also love how these two bracelets can be attached together and can be worn as a choker or a short statement necklace."

"This season, I'm sporting darker colours! To contrast it, I'm gonna brighten up my face and draw some attention to the cheekbones with the Max Factor Miracle Glow Duo. It comes in two shades, light and medium, to create a beautifully radiant glow that also builds up to a blinding shine. After all, more is more, right?"

Red and pink eyeshadow colours can be hard to play around with because they can either be too bold or can make you look like you have an eye infection (yikes!). But that's no reason to give up on them completely. With just the right amount of blending, a cut crease here and there, and more makeup magic, you can achieve the most saturated eye looks that are more reminiscent of radiant sunsets than a bad case of pink eye. 


So get red-dy (pun intended) to make the most out of your red and pink eyeshadows by taking notes from these glamorous looks made by our Clozetters.
