You want to glow- Not sparkle
I am telling you, highlighters are all the new rage right now and I have no idea how they haven’t been a hot topic for centuries now. I mean they have been around forever, but the hype just started. Illuminators are the perfect thing for summer because it keeps your face glowing for a perfectly natural look. No one wants to wear a lot of makeup in the summer, which is why it is perfect. It makes your skin look like it’s naturally glowing and vibrant- well depending on how much you put on. But, they are awesome.
I would recommend buying powder products- but hey- if you’re a cream person, go for it. I don’t prefer cream just because I feel like it rubs off too easily. I like my makeup to last as long as possible with my busy schedule. Some of my favorite products include:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator
Don’t get confused. Illuminators are the same thing as highlighters! These products are highly pigmented so, you do not need a lot. That at least makes up for the slightly pricey cost of $28. Not too bad for makeup but, it is absolutely worth it. If you can- buy Anastasia’s Glow Kit. It comes with four gorgeous metallic illuminators. Do not underestimate this pallet. It is essential for any girl! Never go on a trip without it.
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed
The product made for goddesses.
People swear by this product online. I have personally never tried it- but I will now. It is a pressed powder but has a creamy bounce to it. From what I have heard it reflects light incredibly! It is definitely a must try to me. I don’t know about you. However, the only thing I found that I don’t like about this product is the expensive price tag. At $38 it better have my face glowing!
NARS The Multiple in Copacabana
For you cream lovers- this NARS illuminator stick will work wonders! Its creamy texture will have your skin looking silky smooth. Rub it everywhere! You cannot go wrong. This award-winning product is great for the everyday multitasker. Just throw it in your purse and dab it on whenever for some mid-day glow! $39
The best thing I love about illuminators is that they are the perfect accent for a natural look. Plus, they make you look stunning! Perfect for a hot summer day on the beach when you do not want or need makeup. However, they’re also the perfect accent for any time of the day.
