How To Achieve Soft Glam Makeup (Bonus: 13 Soft Glam Beauty Products to Try)!

We are all aware at this point in the year how much makeup trends have changed. Minimalistic, skin-focused makeup with sheer tints and glossy lips have been dominating our everyday makeup look. But, what if we want to glam up a bit?

Well, soft glam has officially become the new go-to. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, and Jessica Alba have been rocking this soft glam look, letting their makeup enhance their beauty rather than cover it up.

If you’re wondering what exactly soft glam is, it’s what it sounds like. It can be described through radiance, neutral and natural. It’s about a lightweight, dewy base, a strong focus on blush and smoky brown shadows.

People have been straying away from thick black liquid liners and opting for blurred-out brown cat eyes. It’s all about being soft all around. Soft shadows, soft liners, soft and wispy lashes. To top it all off, a great nude lip always makes a soft glam look as good as it is.

Brown, rosy pinks, and sunset oranges are usually the color waves we opt for in a soft glam look. But, you can incorporate color while keeping the same style and looking natural. This just means that you should be gravitating towards earth-tone colors. Try forest or sage greens, burgundy, or blush pinks.

You can even add some glitter on your lids for a pop of glamour that’ll elevate an otherwise natural look. Some great soft glam palettes to try out include the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette and Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette.

Contour trends haven’t changed all that much, but as a rule of thumb, if you’re going with cream products, stick with cream products until the end. Using a mixture of powders and liquid can separate your foundation and leave you looking a little splotchy.

That being said, our favorite cream contours are the Makeup By Mario Soft Sculpt Shaping Stick, and the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Matte Contour Skinstick.
