Glass skin is a trend rooted in Korean skincare principles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use makeup to achieve the look – and that’s what a number of TikTokers are doing lately. time.
This is all thanks in part to TikTok star Erika Titus, who shared her glass skin base in June – prompting many more app users to try it out for themselves.
“This is the kind of glow I dream of at night! It’s not even a glow…it’s literally glass skin,” TikToker Jawaria Khalid said in a makeup routine video update. .
Other top TikTok influencers, such as Mikayla Nogueira, have also shared Glass Skin product recommendations.
Since the idea behind the original skincare technique is to layer lightweight products to boost hydration and create a juicy, plumped-up complexion, it makes sense that the makeup process isn’t all that different.
For Erika, it starts with a coat of Supergoop Glow Screen SPF30 Ultra Shine, before a healthy spritz of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray. “I make a pretty good layer of it,” she says.
Instead of foundation, she opts for Dr. Jart Cicapair color correcting treatment, which she draws sparingly into her skin (but beware: this product is not suitable for all skin tones). For concealer, it’s a few little dots of Tarte Shape Tape under the eyes, around the nose and chin — she adds that she uses Ilia’s True Skin Serum concealer for “any other problematic or red areas.”
Erika uses no powder for the look and also sticks to cream products for her bronzer, highlighter and blush. A few dots of Hollywood Contour and Charlotte Tilbury’s Beauty Light Wands in Pillowtalk and Peachgasm make up the majority of the look, but she also adds a bit of Rare Beauty Liquid Blush in Entourage. The key is small amounts of product, mixed mostly with your fingers.
Of course, anyone with oily skin might get a little turned on by the glass skin look – which usually doesn’t require powder and really leans into that shiny look. “My oily skin could never,” replied one follower – but another advised: “If you want to use powder and keep the glow, I recommend Laura Mercier Glow Setting Powder – I always look so dew after!”
