[BEAUTY 101] Ready, Set, Glow!

Invest in your best fall glow with the EBONY.com editor’s top picks from the new Simple Vera Skin Illuminating Collection available at Kohl’s.

Illuminating Powder Blush: Ah, this one is our favorite shade of them all! At first glance, you may be a bit apprehensive amount the rich peachy-pink color, but please, please try it! The best combination of rich, golden hues, mauves and pinks create a fresh-faced glow that works for women of color (they were tested on a few of the editors, all different shades of brown!).

TIP: Women with darker complexions can double up on the blush, while those with lighter complexions just need a sweep upon the cheek!

Skin Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer: It’s like foundation for your body. Our skin can easily appear dull and dry during the colder weather. However, Simply Vera mastered the trick to creating a body moisturizer that adds a very natural glow. Light, sheer and non-greasy, this lotion is well balanced and it also comes in different shades.

TIP: Apply 20 minutes before you put on your clothes to avoid product rub-off. Also, it’s a smaller tube, so save the full body coats for those special nights. 

Skin Brightening Primer: This primer is very effective in creating a smooth canvas for makeup application. Don’t get too shy about applying an extra coat, as this product is very light, and may require more than the usual recommended dime-sized dab to work it’s magic.

TIP: Follow up your usual morning moisturizer with a coat of the skin brightening primer for added moisture, and let it sit on your skin for a good 5 minutes before applying makeup.
