Yoga Skin — New Beauty Trend From Instagram
We tell how to master the main beauty trend of the year – make-up in the “yoga skin” technique.
The new cocktailing technique was created by Scottish makeup artist Sara Hill. Hill worked with many celebrities, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kanye West, as well as with the fashion house of Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood.
“Radiant make-up is making the skin look lit from within. I called it ‘yoga skin’ because it emulates that really gorgeous radiance you have when you step out of the yoga studio — juicy, dewy and super-hydrated. It’s not about hiding imperfections but creating a hyper-real version of your natural skin, pinchable and just irresistible!” said Sara.
If you’re a fan of natural makeup and are delighted with how your skin looks after training (when you’re a little sweaty and have a blush on your cheeks), then you will fall in love with yoga skin at first sight.
A step-by-step guide on how to do makeup in “yoga skin” technique:
1. Prepare your skin for makeup as normal – gently clean and thoroughly moisturize. Before proceeding to the next step, wait until the moisturizing products are fully absorbed.
2. Apply a small amount of primer (preferably without silicone) and let it absorb.
3. Mix 3-4 drops of foundation (choose lightweight fluids with a moisturizing effect) with a drop of your favorite skin care oil and a drop of liquid highlighter (golden tones work best).
4. On those areas that you wish to mask, put a little liquid concealer, but don’t overdo it. The essence of yoga skin makeup is to make the tone as natural as possible, as if you did not use any cosmetics at all.
5. Apply a little cream blush or bronzer to your cheeks and/or cheekbones. Don’t overdo this step.

The Yogaskin Technique I created to make the skin look lit 💡from within. Healthy, glowing, hydrated, radiant, sheer and natural. Skin that looks like skin at its very best. ✴︎Step One - Cleanse and prep your skin as normal. Let your skincare absorb fully before adding the next step. ✴︎Step Two - Apply a small amount of primer (silicone free). ✴︎Step Three - 3-4 Pumps of your favourite foundation liquid. Preferably Sheer/Medium (water based). No full cover. ✴︎Step Four - One drop of your favourite skincare facial oil ✴︎Step Five - One drop of strobe cream or Liquid highlighter. Golden tones work best. ✴︎Step Six - For super shine One small drop of Glow drops (this step is optional ) ✴︎Step Seven - Massage into your skin using your hands; this does many things. It gets the circulation flowing, relaxes you, de-puffs, and makes the base sit better too. Build up in layers on top until you are happy with the coverage created. I would recommend allowing time between layers. ✴︎Step Eight - Add a small amount of liquid concealer only in the areas you wish more coverage like under eyes, spots or around the nose. Please do not overdo this step ✌🏼. You can lightly powder to set concealer. Add cream blush and cream bronzer if you wish. And you can set your face overall with powder too, use a small fluffy brush to do this or puff and keep the powder to a minimum and sheer. No baking please 😘 . If you wish to use setting spray make sure it’s alcohol free to give further hydration. I used.. @chanel.beauty - foundation @kiehlsuki -Facial oil @kevynaucoin -Highlighter liquid @revolutionpro - Glow drops @chanel.beauty - Cream bronzer @glossier - Cream blush Recommend powder - @maccosmeticsuk Blot powder. Recommend set spray @pixibeauty. If this all seems to complex don’t panic! just add a little facial oil into your base keep everything looking sheer as possible. If you have very oily skin and don’t like to look shiny this might not be the look for you.
