Since my last post featured an illuminated skin makeup look, I figured I’d share with you my current favorite highlighters!
L’Oreal Magic Lumi Primer | This was featured in my 2014 favorites. I really was not expecting to love this product, but it’s become a staple in my routine. It gives the skin a dewy look and provides an excellent base for foundation. I prefer to use it as a primer, but you can also mix it with your foundation or use it as a highlighter on the tops of your cheeks and other high points. I’m not sure if I’ll continue to use this in summer, but I think it’s an amazing product for winter to prevent dull-looking skin.
Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer | I got this product with the Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Color Collection from Sephora (no longer available). I ended up splitting the set up and keeping this and two of the other products for myself. I’ve been mixing this with my foundation every day lately, and I love the glow it gives. This may be too much “glow” for some people; I think it has some noticeable sparkle in it, but I can only see it when I’m up really close to a mirror. If I really want to go all out, I put more of this on top of my cheekbones.
Benefit Watt’s Up | As far as plain ol’ highlighters go, this may be my all-time favorite. If you couldn’t already tell, I prefer cream highlighting products to powder ones. I feel like they look more natural (I’m looking at you Mary Lou-Manizer). Watt’s Up gives such a gorgeous, natural looking light to your face that I feel can’t be beat with any of my other highlighters. Check out this post to see it in action.
What are your favorite highlighters?
