Her World Beauty Team Endorses: Yoga Skin

Not a splotch of redness. Not a bead of sweat. Getting yoga skin doesn’t actually require you commit to an hour-long session of Namaste, but the end result still looks like you have inner peace beaming through your pores.

Think this: glistening, glowing skin; radiant complexion that looks shyly flushed – basically, a healthy and hydrated #IWorkedOutLikeThis look (sans the working out). It’s created by blending liquid foundation, face oil and liquid highlighter, topping it with light concealer on blemishes, then applying cream blusher or bronzer.

The look isn’t supposed to conceal blemishes. It shouldn’t be anything high-coverage, and no pore-filling action is needed. Instead, the cocktail should lend a sheer layer on your skin for a “hyper-realistic” version of your complexion.

To pull off this look in our climate, makeup artist Larry Yeo says to skip the liquid highlighter – they’re too unforgiving on not-perfect skin, and face oil. “Unless you have extremely dry skin, then oils will bring the glow back. Otherwise, your face is going to get greasy quickly.”

Start with a radiance-boosting primer to lightly smooth pores and add a subtle sheen. Layer on a foundation with a glowy finish. Last, use a big, fluffy brush to dust powder over the oilier parts of your face.
