Get The Glow This Summer

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

When it comes to summertime makeup, for me I love a natural base paired with a gorgeous highlighter for a soft glow. While this look suits all year round, it is certainly what comes to my mind in summer, so today I am sharing with you the highlighters you need, in three different formulas - a powder, a cream and a liquid finish, perfect for everyone.

THE POWDER GLOW - Colourpop's Supershock Highlight in Flexitarian

Colourpop's Supershock powder highlighters are genuinely out of this world, so much so that when I purchased mine in the shade Flexitarian, it was basically the only highlighter I used for a year! I seriously could not get enough of it.
It is so easy to apply, dabbing it with a finger onto the tops of your cheekbones, browbone etc, and gives an everlasting glow throughout the day. I love how pigmented it is, which of course is a given being a Colourpop product, and although they have a huge shade range I would really recommend Flexitarian - the champagne-gold tone is really flattering and pretty.

THE CREAM GLOW - Fenty Beauty's Shimmer Stick in Starstruck

My most recent makeup purchase is certainly a good one; when Fenty Beauty arrived in Boots I knew I had to try something from the range, and I settled on a shimmer stick because I didn't own anything like it. Again, super easy to apply, straight from the stick onto your skin, or dabbing on with your finger if you want a lighter glow. I went for the shade Starstruck which is a pink toned highlight, probably the second lightest in her collection so perfect to add some glow while also leaving a natural finish.

The packaging is also so stunning and sleek in the light pink - they are also magnetic so if you get more, or one of her foundation sticks they all stick together! It has impressed me so much I am really interested in trying some more products, her powder highlighter duos really impress me too.

THE LIQUID GLOW - L'Oreal's True Match Liquid Glow Illuminator in Icy Glow

Back in the day I was a real liquid highlighter lover because of how easy it is to blend into the skin for a natural yet glowing look. The L'Oreal liquid illuminator is my personal favourite because it is a perfect dupe of Benefit's High Beam - the pink iridescent shade is an almost exact match, while you get way more product for your money, lasting you absolutely ages!

What's your favourite highlighting product this summer?
