Want to up your glow game? The real secret to achieving that fresh-faced, ‘just got back from a balmy island’ look? It’s the foundation with skincare benefits of your dreams. Glowy makeup products are all the rage but what sets CC+ Nude Glow Lightweight Foundation + Glow Serum with SPF 40 apart is that it lets your natural skin shine through while imparting skin-loving ingredients that can actually visibly improve your complexion over time. This text-the-group-chat-stat product gives you dewy coverage and a nutrient-rich formula. We call that a win-win.
The Glowy Makeup That Doubles as Skincare
When we say that CC+ Nude Glow is infused with skincare, we’re not kidding. This glowy makeup foundation is formulated with 90% skincare ingredients. In that sense, it’s so much more than your tinted moisturizer and truly goes above and beyond a traditional foundation.
Available in 22 shades, it’s been clinically tested* to improve brightness, smoothness, softness, plumpness, skin tone, pore appearance, and a healthy appearance of skin. Here’s what’s packed inside:
A Brightening Glow Serum
Along with instant, color correcting coverage, CC+ Nude Glow is formulated with a powerful brightening glow serum that helps visibly brighten and hydrate your skin.
- Niacinamide (2%): Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide promotes visibly brighter skin and a complexion that looks more even in tone and texture.
- Hyaluronic acid: This dermatologist's favorite is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture from the air to help visibly smooth and plump your skin.
- Green tea extract: This ingredient helps protect your skin from environmental aggressors.
In a consumer study** where participants used CC+ Nude Glow for four weeks, 93% said their overall skin appearance looked improved, 91% said that their skin felt smoother and moisturized, and 87% said that their complexion looked brighter. How’s that for glowy makeup?
Clear SPF 40
CC+ Nude Glow contains a broad spectrum SPF 40 that helps protect your skin from sunburns, premature signs of aging, and skin cancer. Best of all, this is a clear SPF that won’t leave behind a white cast—even if you have a dark complexion.
Pro Tip: The American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) says that everyone should wear an SPF of 30+ or higher every single day. Yes, even when it’s raining, cloudy, snowing, or if you’re inside. There’s a lot of noise when it comes to sunscreen but you want a broad spectrum SPF that shields your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.1
Along with the above benefits, CC+ Nude Glow is:
- Safe for sensitive skin
- Dermatologist tested
- Allergy tested
How Do You Make Your Makeup Look Glowy?
One of the most common skin woes is a lackluster, tired, and dull complexion. There are two ways to address this problem:
1. Get Serious About Your Skincare Routine
Healthy skin equals glowy skin, which means your day and nighttime regimens should be prioritized. A top-notch cleanser, facial serum, moisturizer, and SPF are non-negotiables. Make sure to use products that address your specific skin type and skin concerns.
Pro Tip: If you struggle to stick with a routine, reframe your thinking and make skincare a self-care moment. Close the bathroom door and play your favorite music or podcast. The more you enjoy the process, the more likely you’ll stick with it.
2. Use Glowy Skin Makeup
For added radiance, reach for glowy makeup products. A go-to is a breathable, medium coverage foundation that helps even out your complexion while imparting a hydrated, dewy finish.
Even better: reach for a foundation infused with skin-loving ingredients, like IT Cosmetics’ CC+ Nude Glow. You’ll get the benefits of a skincare product that visibly improves the beauty and health of your skin over time while enjoying instantly gorgeous, glowy skin.
How Do You Apply Glowing Makeup?
To maximize that glowy makeup factor, follow this step-by-step guide when applying CC+ Nude Glow:
Step One: Apply CC+ Nude Glow
While your fingers or a sponge will get the job done, we recommend applying CC+ Nude Glow with the Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush #7. Dispense one to two pumps onto the brush and then, starting at the center of your face and working outward, gently sweep over your face.
One pass of this lightweight, medium coverage foundation will create an instant, healthy glow finish and 24 hours of hydrated skin. If desired, you can build more coverage.
Step Two: Apply The Rest of Your Makeup
If you’re short on sleep or dealing with a blemish (or both!) use Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer to the spots that need some extra oomph. Then finish your glowy makeup look with a dab of blush on your cheeks, bronzer to infuse a little warmth, and eyeshadow and mascara to brighten your eyes. A swipe of hydrating lip gloss completes the fresh, no makeup makeup vibe.
Get the Look:
- Bye Bye Pores Blush
- Ombré Radiance Bronzer
- Superhero No-Tug Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick
- Hello Lashes+ Volumizing Mascara with Lash Serum
- Pillow Lips Solid Serum Lip Gloss
Step Three: Set Your Makeup
To help keep your glowy makeup in place, follow up with four spritzes of Your Skin But Better Setting Spray+. Use this product for a refreshing pick-me-up and quick burst of hydration throughout the day. When applying, make a “+” and “x” pattern to ensure an even application.
Thanks to its innovative 90% skincare formulation, CC+ Nude Glow delivers that refreshed, summer glowy makeup look in a bottle. Available in 22 shades, find your perfect CC+ Nude Glow match here.
