As a dry skinned girl, I prefer my makeup to be very dewy. To get a goddess glow I use a combination of many different products. Creams, primers, highlighters, bronzers, blushes, and setting sprays are all different types of products that can be used in conjunction to create the perfect glow. With summer coming up I figured I would share some of my favorite products that can really make a difference when it comes to adding some light to your face.
Primer is a must have. There are so many different kinds of primers on the market right now. Radiant or luminous primers happen to be my personal favorite. The Laura Mercier Radiance primer is my go to at the moment. At $36 for 1.7 oz, this primer is a bang for the buck when you compare it to the price of others. The Laura Mercier primer has a golden sheen to it which I prefer much more than pink. The only time I do not use this primer is when I need something that will last even longer than the average daily wear. When I want my makeup to last all day long and into the evening I will use the Shiseido Glow Enhancing Primer.
Mac’s Fix Plus is my ultimate holy grail setting spray. I don’t go without setting my makeup using Mac’s Fix Plus. Fix Plus can be used for multiple purposes, but when it’s used to set makeup everything will look a lot more natural and youthful. It also hydrates the skin, pretty much anyone with dry skin would ABSOLUTELY adore this; just like I do.
Bronzer can give more glow than what you might think. The Too Faced Little Black Book of Bronzers is a great value for many different bronzers. Some are matte and some are shimmery. The best out of them all is Sun Bunny. Sun Bunny’s luminosity is fan-freakin-tastic and it is also the perfect bronzer for the summer.
I use the Becca liquid Shimmering Skin Protectors in a unique way. They do make great cheek highlighters; I like using them under my eyes, in a triangular shape, before I apply my concealer. I find that this brightens up my under eye area a lot. The shade pictured is Opal. Champagne Gold is my favorite shade however it was limited edition and is no longer available. I’m crossing my fingers that they bring it back in a future holiday collection!
Becca makes some of the best highlighting products on the market. Becca’s pressed powder highlights can be worn super subtly or dramatic as can be!
I own three shades. The shades from left to right are Moonstone, Champagne Pop, and Rose Gold. Moonstone, and Champagne Pop are both light enough for me to use as actual highlighters. I actually bought Rose Gold specifically so I can use it as a blush topper. On a regular basis I will use Moonstone lightly on my nose, forehead, and chin. Then I will use Champagne Pop on my cheekbones. I will wear Moonstone on my cheek bones on the days where I am wearing less makeup. Champagne Pop and Moonstone can also be mixed together to create a glow that will turn heads.
What are some of your favorite go to glowy products? I know I love buying products for this purpose, so if there is anything out there that you guys want to recommend I try, let me know! 🙂
Keep on glowing all you Lovebirds!
