And today's pregnancy annoucement is (drum roll, please) . . . Jewel. Yep, the singer is the latest celeb to announce she's with-child, joining Natalie Portman, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Connelly, Marion Cotillard, Penélope Cruz, Rachel Zoe, Mariah Carey, Owen Wilson's girlfriend and, we can't go on, we're out of breath. There is DEFINITELY something in the water right now. It's bub-o-rama! We LOVE it! Especially as all the mums-to-be are glowing. Seriously. Did you see Nat Portman at the Palm Springs International Film Festival gala this weekend? Girl looked ridic. And I thought to myself, I want some of that. But maybe without the baby, because, well I'm broke as a joke after splashing out on a Mulberry Alexa over Christmas. Good news, there is a way. Tony Baumann, Director of Colour for Mecca Cosmetica, tells us how it's done in two steps.
STEP 1: Mix equal amounts of a tinted moisturiser, such as
<product target="_blank" href="http://www.meccacosmetica.com.au/shop/MeccaCosmetica/InAGoodLightSPF30TintedFacialSunscreen/">Mecca Cosmetica a Good Light SPF 30+ Tinted Facial Sunscreen</product> ($50), with an illuminisor. We love
<product target="_blank" href="http://www.meccacosmetica.com.au/shop/Nars/OrgasmIlluminator/">NARS Orgasm Illuminator</product> ($69) and
<product target="_blank" href="http://www.pulsepharmacy.com.au/Product/Chanel-Le-Blanc-De-Chanel.aspx">Chanel Le Blanc De Chanel</product> ($65), but
<product target="_blank" href="http://www.meccacosmetica.com.au/shop/MeccaCosmetica/LitFromWithinLuminousSkinPerfector/">Mecca Cosmetica Lit From Within Luminous Skin Perfector</product> ($40) is also ah-mazing and you save yourself nearly 30 bucks! Then apply evenly. The blend of both the products delivers the most believable no-makeup glow without looking greasy or unnatural. You're left looking like you've slept for a month!

<product target="_blank" href="http://www.meccacosmetica.com.au/shop/Stila/ConvertibleColour/">Stila Convertible Colour Blush in Lillium</product> ($48); lightly pat it onto the apples of cheeks and then press a small amount onto the centre of the lips. And voilà, the pregnancy glow without the morning sickness!
