“Dolphin skin” is one of the wackier skin trends to have made it to celebrity circles. Glass skin, vampire facials, and snail slime face masks have all staked their claims in the skinfluencer industry. It's no surprise then that this aquatic mammal is now an icon of glowy fresh out of water skin!
The term "dolphin skin" was coined by celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips of Iconic London. The dolphin skin look is probably exactly what you imagine - crystal clear firm skin that glistens in the sun. It's like glass skin, with less shine and more shimmer. This makeup look has adorned the faces of many celebs including Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber, and Jennifer Lopez. Like so many of 2021's top makeup trends, this look is focused on natural-looking healthy, hydrated skin that is then accentuated by makeup. No more harsh contours or matte concealers, we want to celebrate the beautiful sun-kissed skin we're in!
If you're ready to achieve your dolphin-like dewy skin glow, start by working from the outside in with supplements, create a beautiful base with a thorough skincare routine, then top it all off with topical products to seal the deal!
Despite what beauty brands might tell you, there is no topical product that will tackle your skincare concerns if you aren't feeding and hydrating your body properly. Your skin reflects everything that's going on below that surface. That's why when we're stressed we start to break out and why eczema and rosacea can worsen when our gut microbiomes are off-balance. To achieve dolphin skin with minimal makeup, you have to work your way from the inside out. Here are some essentials to get you started:
Before we get into makeup, it's time to show our skin some love.
Now that we've used supplements and a moisturizer to create a beautiful luminous base for your dolphin skin glow, we're going to accentuate it with makeup!
As you can see from this "how-to", the shining star of the dolphin skin trend is radiant, hydrated, healthy skin and makeup is the final touch. Take care of your skin today by eating healthy, supplementing, and hydrating, and you'll be prepared for whatever skincare trend comes your way.
