Instagram is one of our favourite places to discover new beauty trends. From the latest skincare innovations to fresh ways to apply our favourite products, we always head to the app to stay ahead of the beauty curve.
One of our favourite new trends which is set to be huge in 2019 is “yoga skin”. Created and showcased on Instagram by Scottish makeup artists Sara Hill, yoga skin is bascially ultra-dewy, luminous skin which looks like a natural post-Vinyasa glow.

“Yoga Skin“ a technique I created to help people achieve a natural glowing complexion easily. It is more than a technique, in fact you don’t even need to mix facial oil and highlighter into your foundation to create it, for me it’s more about the finished look. It differs from glass skin because it’s not polished perfection. It’s skin that looks real, raw, healthy, hydrated and glowing. It’s about beautiful skin, great skincare and embracing the no makeup makeup vibe. It’s not for everyone. Makeup styles, like everything in life is down to personal taste. But if you fancy giving it a go just add a few drops of facial oil into your water based foundation, a few drops of liquid highlighter and apply, I like to use my hands to massage it in, however, you can use a sponge if you prefer. #yogaskin Model @laurengreeny ❤️❤️ Hair @jackbaxter Video @_donnamcgowan #glowingskin #yogaskin #sarahillmakeup #inbeautmag #skingoals #makeuptutorial #makeupvideos
What is “yoga skin”?
Inspired by the K-Beauty “glass skin” trend we fell in love with last year, “yoga skin” is a skincare-makeup hybrid technique which allows you to create a glossy base.
Unlike glass skin however, it is not about polished perfection but instead skin which simply looks as real, radiant and healthy as possible.
It’s about beautiful skin, great skincare and embracing the no-makeup makeup vibe

Aside from using the perfect products to create your glowy base, Hill suggests drinking lots of water and prepping your skin with your favourite cleanser and moisturiser to achieve the perfect lit-from-within look. We love using the OSKIA Renaissance Cleansing Gel followed by the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré for a fresh and dewy finish.
Leave your moisturiser to settle into your skin for five minutes before going on to apply your base.
