Glowing Matte Skin for Winter

I mentioned recently that I liked to mix Benefits The POREfessional and Nars Illuminator in
 Copacabana together. Then fellow blogging pal Alina from Beauty with Charm (check her out) said I should do a post on how I use them together and I thought that was a good idea. I will use the combo under lots of different foundations, but right now I've been loving the look of my newest foundation Nars Sheer Matte in Deauville. (Review to come soon.) Matte skin is just my favorite when wearing a smokey eye or a vampy lip. 
Basically, what I do, is simply use the same amount of The POREfessional and a half a pea sized amount of Copacabana and mix them together. This would work with any shade of Illuminator. Then I apply it just like I normally would with any primer and boom!! Any foundation is now illuminated and skin looks healthy and lit from within, even when using a matte foundation that is sheer to medium coverage. Because it is placed under the foundation it looks like the glow is coming from the skin and not makeup.

I hope you liked this post and found it helpful in achieving all your glowing needs.
Do you have any special tricks to get that glow we all love? What's your holy grail illuminator? Let me know so I can give it a try too. Thanks for reading and if you're not already be sure to follow Lipstick Is A Life if you want to see more posts like these.
