Glowtion: All You Need to Know About This New Beauty Trend

We’ve all heard of (and have ShopandBox-ed) BB creams, cushion compacts, highlighters, and contour palettes. But the next beauty product that’s making a huge buzz in the industry right now are glowtions – and they are exactly what you think: skincare/foundation hybrids that are meant to illuminate your complexion for a subtlely beautiful glow.

If you’ve always been into strobing and the art of highlighting the focal points of your features, glowtions are the new moisturisers/BB creams to have in your beauty kit for its amazing multipurpose properties. You can either use glotions as a base before concealer, or even as a moisturiser to nourish your skin while injecting a dash of glow. All thanks to the effortlessly flawless makeup look sported on the runways lately (where a seemingly natural canvas is achieved via makeup-skincare hybrids), it’s all about taking care of your skin while ensuring it looks fab at the same time.
