The year is 2008.
You’re watching the movie Twilight as Edward Cullen steps into an opening in the forest. His skin sparkles in the sunlight. “You’re beautiful,” Bella Swan observes. Beautiful indeed.
Flash forward to 2022...
You’re scrolling through TikTok and stumble upon the trend, “Vampire Skin.” This is it. The moment you’ve been waiting for. Edward Cullen’s iridescent complexion is finally attainable. Although it’s not Robert Pattinson you’re watching glimmer on your screen, it’s August Sombatkamrai.
This creator has revealed the secret to achieving a glowing complexion, and it involves two easy steps. Simply mix highlighter with foundation and apply it all over your face. We’re not talking a drop of highlighter, more like a 1:1 ratio. Sombatkamrai even takes it one step further by applying additional highlighter on their cheekbones, forehead, cupid’s bow, and nose. A glow for the gods.
Vampire Skin Makeup Tutorial
Sombatkamrai, who uses Mac Cosmetic’s Studio Fix Foundation revealed that the trick is to avoid going overboard with foundation. A little goes a long way when trying to make your skin appear natural. Some other great options are Ilia’s Super Serum Skin Tint and Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation.
After applying one pump of foundation, mix it with an almost equal amount of highlighter. *Sacred Child Beauty has entered the chat.* Our liquid highlighter is ultra-luminous on its own and blends so nicely with other products. Squeeze a generous amount with your favorite foundation or skin tint and blend, baby blend!
Just like Edward Cullen only shines in the sunlight, Sombatkamrai admits this hack can look gritty under dull light, so plan accordingly! It is best worn on a sunny day or under bright lights. In 2008, this concept might’ve turned heads, or necks, if you will. As Edward said to Bella in the Fork’s forest, “This is the skin of a killer.” We’re inclined to agree…a killer makeup look in 2022 anyway.
