A glowing beauty trend got us looking for shimmery makeup. That's right, the pearl skin trend is a new way to get that youthful glow.

What is pearl skin?

Pearl skin is a beauty trend that focuses on achieving a light and delicate glow reminiscent of the sheen of pearls. It requires fewer products and effort than glass skin, aiming for a soft, silky, and ethereal look rather than a wet, shiny appearance. Unlike glass skin, which emphasizes hydration and a plump, moisturized look, pearl skin focuses on creating a dewy base and highlighting the high points of the face with a strobe-like effect. It takes inspiration from pearls, with a color palette leaning towards champagne and oyster hues.

Beauty Products to Get Pearl Skin

To achieve the pearl skin look, start with well-moisturized skin and use a luminous-finish primer to blur pores. Opt for a light-to-medium-coverage base with a radiant finish like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Apply a subtle highlighter with a pearlescent finish to the apples of your cheeks, forehead, and other high points of your face. Use natural-inspired hues for eyeshadow, blush, and lip color. Finish with gelled eyebrows, mascara, and a makeup setting spray or luminous powder to seal the look.

Here are a few beauty products to try on your road to achieving the pearl skin trend.
