Get the Glow

20 Mar

There’s matte and there’s shiny. And then there is a glow.

Radiant. Illuminating. Healthy. Everyone loves a good glow.

Here are my favourite highlighting products to give you a glow:

1. Sun Beam by Benefit

This is like sunshine in a bottle. Applied properly (do not use the nail polish style brush it comes with!) it will give you a natural sunkissed glow. Just dab a bit on your cheekbones and brow bone and you should be good to go all day.

2. Shimmering Skin Perfector by Becca in Opal

Sephora simply cannot keep this product in stock. It’s the perfect amount of shimmer for a night out in a gorgeous pearly bronze colour. If I had to choose, this is my favourite.

3. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Lights Capade

I’m not a huge MAC girl, but I do love this product. For you MAC lovers out there, this is a must-have. It is so easy to apply – it really is idiot-proof. A little swipe along the tops of your cheekbones and under your eyebrows and you are looking radiant as can be!

4. Make Up Forever Uplight Face Luminating Gel

The great thing about this little gem is it can be added to your foundation for an all over glow. It can also be used to highlight cheekbones and brow bones. I love #22 Pearly Pink Flesh for the winter and #12 Dewy Golden Beige for summer time.

5. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

You already know I love this from my blog post here. The great thing about this line of powders is they can double as a soft bronzer or blush. They are also formulated without parabens – bonus!

Don’t say I didn’t warn you though – no one wants to look they are covered in oil or swallowed Tinkerbell. A little goes a long way, ladies!

    It’s Throwback Thursday y’all…

    And with summer on it’s way out and winter on it’s way in (dammit), I find my skin could use a little help as my tan fades. Hence this post – Get the Glow!
