Alright, if there’s ONE trend that with NEVER phase out for me it’s creating a healthy, youthful, obnoxious glow to the skin. Its the one thing that stays consistent in my makeup routine every season.
I usually go HAM on the highlighters (I seriously layer like 3 layers product on…lol), but you can always lightly apply a highlighting powder or add a liquid illuminator to your foundation for a subtle glow. What I love most about highlighting products is that you don’t always have to have a full face to get a dewy look. For example you can mix a liquid highlight with your daily moisturizer or you can dust some powder on the high points of the face before running out of the house. Today I’m sharing my favorite highlighting powders, liquid highlighters, and luminous foundations.
These products are like the cherry on top of a flawless makeup application. With tons of powders on the market you can’t go wrong with selecting a powder. Using a brush to apply this product works the best.
For the days that you don’t want to be a walking disco ball (who doesn’t want that?) you can opt for a liquid highlighter for a light gleam. These products can be used for an all over glow or just placed to enhance certain areas. Personally this is step 2 for me since I layer it between my foundation and highlight powder. I find that using my fingers to apply and blend works better that the use of a brush because you have more control over where the product is placed. The warmth from your fingertips can really help melt the product into the skin and foundation. I only use a brush if I am mixing my liquid highlight in with my foundation verses layering it on after foundation.
For minimal glow, luminous foundation is an awesome 2 in 1 product. Most luminous foundations cater to those who have drier skin types so if you have oily skin you may want to steer clear from this formula or have a really good primer to keep you relatively matte.
How do you feel about luminizing products? What are some of your faves?
