Monde’s Top Picks for Naturally Glowing WFH Skin

Words By Lisa Favazzo

Working from home has blurred the lines between comfort, casual and chic. Full coverage foundation has been on its way out for years, and the pandemic has been the coup de grace.

By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Lumi-serum

French beauty brand By Terry is famous for turning on-trend looks into timeless beauty with their sophisticated and silky formulas.

Cellularose Brightening CC Lumi-Serum is an instant pick me up. It provides a brightness that doesn’t shine and a glow that doesn’t glitter, because we all know that using a power-packed serum or primer is the key to achieving that ‘lit-from-within’ look.

The product contains By Terry’s trademark rosewater as a base to reduce inflammation and light-reflective particles to give the appearance of evenness without the coverage. Gently warm into your face, neck and décolletage for the perfect low maintenance glow.

Giorgio Armani Prima CC Glow Moisturising Cream

Giorgio Armani is a legacy premium brand known for beauty innovation. This CC cream feels ultra-sheer on the skin and is enriched with vitamin E to inject life back into tired skin. You can apply this product liberally without worrying about build-up or patchiness.

Colour correcting creams, better known as CC creams, typically provide a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturiser and are perfect for lightly disguising skin blemishes, pigmentation and redness.

Giorgio Armani’s Prima CC Glow Moisturiser Cream looks particularly beautiful on freckled skin as it evens the tone without hiding the skin’s natural colour composition. To avoid wasting precious product, we recommend using clean fingers with this CC cream.

Hourglass Hyaluronic Skin Tint

Hourglass, the cruelty-free brand that has reached cult-like status, makes products with a philosophy of decadence, conscience and performance; all in one beautifully designed package.

Arguably one of most favourite products of all-time, the HOURGLASS Illusion® Hyaluronic Skin Tint may not be as light as your average tinted moisturiser, but it definitely is buildable, meaning the coverage is entirely up to you. It also contains hyaluronic acid, plumping the skin as you apply.

For a smooth and even application, make sure you warm the product between clean fingers and smooth into uneven areas of the skin for a luminous, natural and hydrated complexion. If a fuller coverage is more your thing, apply with a synthetic hair foundation brush.

RMS Un-cover Up

RMS founder Rose-Marie Swift developed the brand after a long illness, discovering that the toxins found in her body were identical to those found in many commercial beauty products. The result was a range of products so natural, you could practically eat them for breakfast.

The larger than life creator came up with the idea for RMS BEAUTY “Un” Cover-up as weekend make-up for models whose skin was being destroyed by heavy-handed makeup application for photoshoots. It’s coconut oil-based and deliciously creamy in texture.

For a fuss-free application, apply this product with a clean index finger, warming it under your eyes and over uneven patches of the skin.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Perfector

Make-up Forever, the brand created by make-up artists for make-up artists, is known around the world for its high-performance products, at an accessible price point.

When it comes to foundations, Make-Up Forever lead the way. In a sheer foundation market saturated with ‘dewy’ options, the Ultra HD Perfector Blurring Skin Tint offers a product suitable for an oilier complexion. It evens the complexion and is easy to build should you want a bit more coverage, leaving the skin looking vibrant. Apply this product with a beautyblender for a long-wearing but breathable look.
