The Glass guide to glowing up while locking down

STAYING in is the new going out, so whether you want to look dewy, hydrated, or sun kissed, Glass has the guide to products that will do it all.

Like most people you’ve probably been on some sort of lockdown over the past four months, that doesn’t leave a lot of opportunity or enthusiasm to get dressed up and go outside and most of us are sure to come out of this prolonged period of isolation, pale and pasty (think Robert Pattinson in Twilight, minus the sparkle … or maybe not) for those of you who want to feel great at home or emerge out of isolation looking bronzed, glowy and refreshed, feast your eyes on these amazing products that will put the glow in your flow and the pep back into your step.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been rather partial to a dewy, lifted, sun-kissed glow.

Sunkissed Glow

Kili Skin Glow

Kili is a beautiful and luxurious botanical liquid bronzer that will give you a wonderful instant natural sun-kissed look! Perfect for use on each and every skin tone, perfect for all ages and perfect for women and men alike. It is also fabulous to add a glow to a fading tan as it brightens and illuminates the skin.

How to Use: For your personalised colour, blend a pea sized amount of Kili golden skin glow with your daily moisturiser or spf.
Alternatively apply directly onto your face after moisturising and blend with your finger, sponge or make-up brush.
We like to a tiny amount directly onto cheeks and forehead and then blend across the face with fingers (paying particular attention to hairline and jawline). This will then be the gorgeous glowing face for the rest of your usual makeup.
What’s Inside:
