"Makeup that's matt will not have a wet shine or glow to it as the foundation has been settled with powder. When you are wearing matt make up, a glow can be brought about by adding a powder blush or shimmer," makeup artist Renuka Pillai told IANS.
"Shine makeup or what I would rather call 'glossy', gives a more dewy effect as the foundation used is generally a liquid or a tinted moisturiser with minimal powdering. It gives a rather nice glow to the face," she added.
She suggests to highlight cheekbones, add a bronzer or creamy highlighter.
Glossy makeup gives the glow that we thrive for, but Pillai says to check the season too.
"During summer season, try and keep it matt. Sometimes glossy can get a little oily looking if there is humidity," she explained.
