There’s nothing I love more than dewy-glowy skin. These are some of my favourite products to create the look we all desire.
MAC Strobe Cream – (£24.50, maccosmetics.co.uk)
An amazing product for getting that ‘illuminated from within’ look. I love to wear this either applied as a primer underneath my foundation, or if I’m going for a more sheer coverage I will mix it in with my foundation before applying. It is a very moisturising product, so if you have dry skin, as I do, this will do wonders!
MAC Studio Face & Body Foundation – (£29.50, maccosmetics.co.uk)
This sheer, lightweight water based foundation is great for achieving that all over dewiness that we all love. It’s the perfect base to put any highlighting products with as it will compliment them perfectly!
Topshop Cream Glow in Gleam – (£9, Topshop)
This is a gorgeous cream highlight with golden undertones, perfect for if you want a bronzed glowy look. As it is a cream it looks super natural on the skin and can be layered up depending on how intense you want the glow to be.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – Soft & Gentle – (£24, maccosmetics.co.uk)
Perfect for all skin skintones, this peachy bronze highlight can be worn subtley or amped up. Looks great not only as an all over highlight but as a glowy eyeshadow all over the lid. If you haven’t tried it you must! As you can see mine is pretty much gone, it was my first highlight and possibly my favourite of the whole bunch. I will definitely repurchase.
Make Up Revolution Baked Highlighter – Peach Lights & Golden Lights – (£3 each, Superdrug)
For more budget highlighters these are amazing! They do not come off glittery which some cheaper highlighters sometimes do and they are not chunky. My favourite of the two is peach lights as I feel it suits my skintone better but I use both on a daily basis. There is a third shade called pink lights, which I may try even though I’m not sure how I feel about a pink highligter but hey for £3 I suggest you run out and get yourself one now!
Make Up Geek Blush – Honeymoon (£7.95, beautybay.com)
If I’m really going to ‘glow all out’ I will use a shimmery blush to add to my look. This one from MUG is perfect, it’s a subtle peachy glow which goes great with any look that you want to bump up the intensity of.
MAC Eyeshadow – Nylon – (£10, maccosmetics.co.uk)
As mentioned in my MAC Haul Nylon is an intense frosty highlight eyeshadow. I love to use this for the inner eye highlight and across my cupids bow. It’s also fab if used sparingly as a highlight everywhere else!
MAC Fix + – (£17, maccosmetics)
This is perfect to set your make up for a dewy glow. It gets rid of any powdery vibes and leaves you with gorgeous glowing skin. The perfect way to set your already glowing complexion.
