Holiday season is here and it’s this time of year that I’m all about the glow. So many of you loved the glowing holiday makeup looks from past seasons so I’ve put together some new ones for more ideas and inspiration! As a lover of all things glowy I’m thrilled to partner with By Terry to give you a closer look at their new Starlight Rose CC Serum and Starlight Rose CC Powder. Both products are beautiful for that natural glow from within kind of effect.
For me the best way to add a natural glow is to start with a good base. I like mixing in liquid luminizers into foundation to add some radiance and color to my look. I also sometimes will use a shimmery fluid and apply all over on top of moisturizer but under foundation for a healthy glow. The key is to find something that has the perfect amount of shimmer with a lightweight feel so if you layer it with your skincare and foundation, it adds glow without being too heavy. The By Terry CC Serums are perfect because they they have a fluid lightweight texture and nice velvety dry down so it lasts all day and looks like skin but better.
Her classic Brightening CC Serum is a glowing base that comes in four color options to add radiance and color correct the skin in the most natural way possible. I’ve used these for years and although quite a splurge a bottle lasts me a very long time. This time of year I love Sunny Flash which adds warmth and glow to my skin. I either mix it in with foundation or use it as a subtle bronzer. It brightens up the skin to give it some life!
Each year she has a special limited-edition color of her CC Serum and this year’s is Starlight Rose. This is a soft rose with subtle gold shimmers infused to brighten the skin. It contains rosehip butter which helps the skin regeneration process and hydrates as well. It’s sheer when blended but is easy to build up with fingers on the cheekbones. I like using this as a primer under foundation. It’s truly stunning and if you splurge on one fluid luminizer this season, I think this is the best option.
To add more glow as a highlight the Starlight Rose CC Powder has three colors pressed into a beautiful mirrored compact. The colors have a soft radiant shimmer to them with what By Terry calls “soft focus micro spheres” to blur skin and smooth lines. I find it adds a really pretty highlight to the cheekbones or anywhere you want added highlights. There’s a glittery overspray to add a festive quality to it. Underneath you’ll find three finely milled pressed shimmering powders that make the skin glow.

Longwear Ombre Blackstar
To brighten or define the eyes the Ombre Blackstar has been a long-time favorite. These are among the longest lasting cream shadow sticks I’ve tried. Bronze Moon has been a staple for as long as I can remember loving makeup! It was one of my first By Terry purchases when I discovered the brand. (Also available as a mini in this Starlight Rose Best of Set which I think is super cute.) Blond Opal is the perfect highlighting color. For the lids either Misty Rock (shimmering purple) or Frozen Quartz (lighter shimmering cool rose) are gorgeous picks. I love Black Pearl for a smokey eye and the color also doubles as a liner if you use a detail brush to smoke out the lash lines. I like these for on-the-go options because they’re easy to apply and blend with fingers or intensify your look to take it from day to night.

I’ve found my perfect Holiday Glow with By Terry – overall lots to love with the Starlight collection. I think the Starlight Rose Glow Booster CC Serum is the perfect luminizer to add an all over sheer glow to the face without being too shimmery. It makes the skin look radiant and blends in beautifully.
