How to get the “glass skin” look
Put a small amount of foundation, moisturizer, primer, and liquid highlighter on a palette.
Mix the products with a silicone brush.
Apply the mixture to your face with a flat foundation brush.
To that, she added Rodial Beauty Soft Focus Glow Drops, Born This Way Too Faced Foundation and Josie Maran Argon Illuminizer.
Experts have often talked about the skin care steps you can take to achieve the look.
The skin that is described as “glass” is when it appears pore-free, luminous and translucent.
Achieving the makeup-free look requires both a healthy and balanced diet as well as a dedication to a skincare routine.
The routine should be performed regularly and consists of many steps – up to 10.
The routine begins with a double cleanse, first with an oil-based cleanser and then with a second cleanser to remove makeup and dirt from the skin.
The next step is to exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and remove blackheads, before toning to help rest the skin’s pH. Toning also helps the next steps to be absorbed into your skin.

The fourth step is to incorporate an essence, which is a thin water-based product to add moisture to the skin. It hydrates and gives a natural glow while increasing the benefits of any skin care routine.
Other steps include using a facial serum or oil, layering on a moisturizer, using an SPF, and using the right face masks.
TikTok users pointed out that the first step was to have “perfect skin” first, while another said the hack was “savage”.
One user said, “Step one: have perfect skin” Another wrote: “First. Treatment and spa every month. ‘ A third commented, “Wow, that’s wild. ”
