Like the name implies, this skin looks like sunlight shimmering through fluffy clouds. It’s more lit-from-within than the dewy, glossy look that’s been popular for the past few years. It’s got a buffed, hazy glow that looks like a Snapchat filter IRL.

How is cloud skin achieved? With a mix of moisture, matte and highlighting. And while glazed skin isn’t ideal for those with oilier complexions, cloud skin’s more matte finish is perfect for the naturally shinier among us.

Here’s how any skin tone can get cloud skin.

Super Hydration


My skin feels like heaven when I use this; it’s coated, bouncy and dewy, not greasy or heavy at all. Just like a cloud ☁️ #pyungkangyul #koreanskincare #skincare #skintok #fy #thatisridiculous #dewyskin #blackgirlskincare

Cloud skin starts with a super hydrated base. Use your rich moisturizer of choice and if you need it, slug with your favorite face oil.

Foundation And Strategic Powder

Next comes foundation. A tinted moisturizer stick makes it fast and easy. Follow with baking powder on cheek hollows and the T-zone.

Highlighter And Blush

Add highlighter to cheeks, eyes, lips and the Cupid’s bow. A cream blush adds a flush of color to the cheeks.
