How to Do Soft Glam Makeup

We’ve broken down the steps to create the perfect beginner-friendly soft glam routine to show you what this makeup looks involves. If you’re thinking of experimenting with the trend, make sure to bookmark this page to use as your tutorial for the next time you’re doing your makeup.

Prep your skin for a healthy glow


If there’s one thing that all trends have in common right now, it’s focusing on prepping your skin before applying makeup. Soft glam is all about radiant skin, meaning you want to take the time to give your skin the TLC that it deserves. Having good skin is half the battle to create a soft glam look.


Make sure that you’ve cleansed, toned, and moisturised your face before you start applying your makeup routine. You want to ensure your skin is clean and hydrated so that it can absorb the makeup products into your skin and keep an even texture and smooth skin tone.


You might decide to use a primer to diminish the appearance of your pores for a more polished look and to help your base products last all day long. If you have skin that’s oily or prone to irritation, adding a primer can be a gamechanger for your routine. It’ll form a layer between your skin and makeup products, preventing it from sinking into your pores and causing breakouts and worse, if you start to sweat the makeup away.


If you’re doing a soft glam look for a special occasion, you’ll want to take the time to invest in using a primer to keep your makeup in place all day long.

Use the right makeup tools


You don’t need to break the bank with designer makeup to create a soft glam look. What you do want to invest in is your tools and makeup brushes. It might be tempting to buy low-quality brushes, but they’re often impossible to blend with and leave your makeup looking streaky.


It’s time to do an audit of your makeup tools and make sure that you have everything you need to create the soft glam look. One tool you’ll need is a sponge or beauty blender to help apply your liquid or cream products. It’s a must-have for applying concealer to give you a natural finish, while covering blemishes and dark circles. A beauty sponge can be used on the more delicate areas of your skin, including under your eyes for treating dark circles.


When in doubt, try using your fingers to blend out the product for a seamless finish. The heat of your fingers can often do the trick to help the pigment blend together.

Make sure to set your face after each step


You want to make sure that you’re setting you’re your makeup as you go along. If you have naturally oily skin, this can cause your ‘radiant’ glow to end up looking more like a glitter ball. You want to make sure that you set your makeup as you go along without losing the radiance and shine in your skin.


The easiest way of setting your makeup is by using a translucent powder and gently dusting it over the targeted areas of your skin – such as your t-zone – using a large fluffy brush.

Choose soft colours


As the name suggests, ‘soft glam’ is all about using soft and feminine colours that help add a glow to your skin. The beauty of soft glam is in its simplicity and the hues that help to make your face glow. You want to stay firmly away from bright colours or anything too dark. You also want to avoid a darker or harsh contour. You can even use a foundation one or two shades darker than your everyday colour to get a more natural look that is softer when blended.


If you want to add a pop of colour to your makeup look, focus it either on your eyes or lips – without overpowering your makeup.

Setting spray


If there’s one tip that you take way from this article, let it be this one. You want to make sure you’re using a setting spray to help finish off your soft glam look and hold it in place. A good setting spray will help merge the layers of your makeup and seal in the finish product to stop it sweating or melting off your skin throughout the day.

Be patient


Like we said before, doing soft glam can be difficult. It’s all about mastering the techniques and using a precise hand and a lightweight application to target the right products to your features. You might find that you’re spending more time blending or doing your makeup in general. With practice and patience, you’ll be able to do soft glam makeup with your eyes closed.
