7 Ways to Highlight and Glow

18 April 2015

You know them days when you are feeling ill, you're having a bad day or your skin just looks plain dull, if you do...I'm here to help! I've collated 7 my favourite 'pick-me-up' products to make you glow and shine right from within, and out. Today, I've chosen to talk about face and eyes products, as I believe they are the most prominent facial features to brighten up your daily look. 

First up, we have the Simple Illuminating Radiance Cream (£7.99). This is the more generalised, all over glow product; you can wear this simply on its own all over the face or personally I like to use it as a primer or mixed with my foundation. The overall effect is gorgeous, especially in winter, as there are tiny glitter flecks running throughout that make your face physically sparkle. 

The second face product that works absolute wonder is the YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Concealer (£24). If you want to highlight specific areas of the face (eg, under eyes, cheek bones, nose etc) then this is perfect for you! With the applicator being in pen form, it is extremely handy for precision and focusing on particular areas of the face. This one is super good for creating the Kim K under eye highlight shabam.

The final three face products are various formulated highlighters - a cream, powder and liquid. Soap and Glory Glow All Out (£11) has lovely peachy undertones that look ultra pretty in the sun when applied to the cheekbones, completely uplifting the face. Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Shimmer Touch 001 Flush of Pearl (£4.99) is a liquified formula that presents a similar colour to that of Glow All Out. However, this holds a greater glow, due to its liquid formula. Finally, Benefit's Watt's Up (£24.50) is my ultimate highlight - it is a creamy dream come true! An intense champagne coloured product which is super easy to blend - what more could you ask for?

Lastly, we are looking at the eye products of today's post. Mac's Vanilla Pigment (£17) and Calvin Klein's Eyeshadow Bare Silk (£12) are beautiful white/cream/neutral eye essentials. CK's cream shadow is great for a glowing white shadow base, it is very pigmented too. Vanilla is another fave - this one is amazing for inner corner highlight and making them brow bones shine. 

Sorry for the excessive use of words like 'highlight', 'glow' and 'radiance' in this post, but I'm sure you will live, eh??? Hope you are all having a lovely weekend - keep smiling!
