The 'Yoga Skin' Makeup Trend Is Here For All The Glowy Babes

There's nothing quite like the dewey, fresh glow you experience after a yoga class. You're hydrated, your chakras are aligned, and you've detoxed the toxins. Even if you are prone to some redness or blotchiness after some physical exertion, the vibrancy of your post-yoga skin simply can't be denied. And while the best way to achieve this look is by literally practicing yoga, it can be replicated with a couple of trusted products and techniques.

"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!" makeup artist Sara Hill, who created and coined the term, told Glamour.

So, what's the key to creating this look sans the yoga workout? What it comes down to (apart from a solid, yet simple skincare routine) is a combination of liquid foundation, facial oil, and liquid highlighter. This magical mixture gives that "lit-from-within" look on days when you might really be feeling the opposite.

Glowing from within

The yoga skin trend has a lot in common with other recent natural makeup looks, but the difference here is really the essence of vitality and health. The dewey glow isn't covering up your natural features, but enhancing them — which is perfectly embodied here. And while very little eye makeup typically completes this look, a subtle shimmer shadow also does the job beautifully.

Fresh and Revived

Beautifully sculpted, natural brows and some clear, dewey lip gloss really enhance the yoga skin vibe and we're here for it. If ever there was a reason to go minimal when it comes to your makeup, yoga skin is it. Vibrant, hydrated, dewey skin is likely here to stay for the long run.

Bold and beautiful

If you do opt for a bolder eye, there's no reason to shy away from yoga skin. The picture of wellness, yoga skin is a great complement to winged eyeliner, making for a beautiful contrast of done and undone. Give it a go the next time you're getting ready for a night out.

Effortless vibrancy

What we love most about yoga skin is its ability to highlight your natural features and truly make them glow. Unlike contour or heavier makeup looks, the real you is front and center with a vivacious shimmer as though you just, well, stepped out of a yoga class. The bright, fresh essence is truly an embodiment of effortlessness.

Warm and wearable

Adding a bit of cream blush to finish off your yoga skin look gives that rosy glow that only amps up the wellness energy of this vibe. A tad flushed and truly emanating from within, the glow of this low-key, easy technique will be truly tricky to move on from.
