As a model, beauty vlogger and the influencer Time magazine calls “the new face of the fashion world,” Irene Kim’s flawless look is the key to her runaway career. And the secret to her signature complexion, as she showed us for our How It’s Done video series, is gorgeous, glowing skin.
And this isn’t just fabulous skin you get from a single magical moisturizer. Kim, who has over 810,000 Instagram followers, goes through a process that involves a few layers of products to get just the right glow (watch the video above for her tutorial).
She starts by applying two pumps of brightening serum (she uses the Estée Edit Radiance Activator) to hydrate and brighten skin and give herself a “lit-from-within finish,” she says. Bonus: It also works as a makeup primer.
Then, she applies a tinted moisturizer to the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead for “an added boost of moisture,” she says (she uses the Estée Edit Beam Team).
Next, she adds another moisturizer, this time one with a hint of shimmer, lightly tapping it on her cheeks and forehead (she applies Estée Edit Skin Glowing Balm). Then, she took the tinted moisturizer again and added a touch to her upper cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow (she uses the Estée Edit Beam Team).
She finishes with a brightening and highlighting powder for the final hint of glow (she uses the Estée Edit Flash Illuminator Fluid Powder).
