MAKE IT GLOW
I am that girl, the one everyone tags in the highlighter memes or the new glow products coming out. It is "my thing" and I simply love discovering new ways to make a face glow. My collection over the years has expanded exponentially and I am always ready for newness.
In my makeup classes, they showed me different techniques and I have created my own over the years. I enjoy layering glow products and I am always mixing and matching.
I feel like you can't achieve a nice glowing skin with just one product, THE MORE the merrier. So here we go, my list of my favorite highlights SO FAR.
* I have been eyeing a couple while writing this. So yeah, another list is in the works...
1) The Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits
They are by far my favorites on set, they have a variety of colors, are creamy and just come out perfectly on camera. A must-have for a makeup artist.
2) The NARS Limited Edition Bord de plage
Nars has been upping their game highlight wise these last few years, and THIS PALETTE IS EVERYTHING.
3) The Becca Cosmetics Liquid Highlighter in Opal
I've recently had the chance to try them out and I must say, I WANT THEM ALL. They are amazing alone and are even better as a base to powder highlighters. They make a face GLOW.
4) The Laura Mercier Baked Matte Highlight #1
It's a classic for a reason, it's just perfection, make a natural skin glow without adding texture. Ideal for an everyday look.
5) The Colour Pop Highlighter in Lunch Money
These highlighters were an amazing discovery. They are inexpensive but just glide on the face. GLOW baby.
6) The Armani Fluid Sheer in #2
I had the pleasure to try this out in training, and it's simply beautiful. I love wearing it as a base because it creates an amazing glow without being too intense, perfect combination to it's Luminous Silk Foundation partner.
7) The YSL Touche Éclat Glow Shot
This was a recent discovery, perfect as a base and ideal for someone who wants something extremely natural. A hint of glow and perfect for any travel bag.
PRO TIP: I usually start by hydrating my skin (oils always help the glow factor). Then I go in for a cream or liquid highlighter as a base. Finally I add some powdered glow on the high points of the face. I usually use a very fluffy brush because I want the glow to look seamless.
Girls. Boys. It's now time to get your glow on. I will be here, swatching more highlighters...
