Ready, Set.. GLOW

I'm sure I can speak for a lot of highlighter addicts out there that they are one of if not, THE most exciting makeup product to put on your face. There is just something so satisfying about a good glow and no makeup look is really complete without it. So here are my current top picks for achieving perfect glowy skin while making those cheekbones pop. 


Back in the day, this gem of a highlighter was all the rage and we just couldn't get enough of it. It is still one of my best-loved highlighters for when I'm wanting a beaming glow that can be seen from a mile away. The pigmentation is intense so a little goes a very long way and it is so buttery in texture. The honey-champagne hue suits many skin tones and I don't find it to be crazy shimmery at all - it's just pure glowy goodness that catches the light beautifully!


L.A. Girl have done a great job with the shade selection (12 to choose from for every skin tone), and '120 Watt' would have to be the ultimate highlighter for fair complexions! It's a gorgeous frosty-white that just reminds me of Christmas time and it is definitely not subtle. This one has more of a shimmer/sparkly glow as opposed to 'Mary-Lou Manizer' so if looking like a disco ball is what you're all about, then you 100% need these in your life.


Initially, I was amazed by how effortlessly this illuminating stick applied over my makeup. It's like a cream to powder formula that feels like nothing on the skin - it literally glides on with ease and the shade 'Iridescent' leaves the most prettiest silver-pink sheen behind. I also own 'Nude Glow' which is just as pretty and it works well on my skin tone when I'm going for a Summery look. I am super impressed by this one and I think it's a drugstore must-have!

The very first highlighter that I've tried by Colourpop and I have to say, I'm obsessed! Firstly, the texture is unlike ANY highlighting powder I have dipped my fingers into because it feels so velvety-smooth, it's incredible. 'Lunch Money' is a pale gold tone with a beautiful soft sheen that looks so flattering on the skin once the light hits. I still cannot believe how inexpensive this product is because the quality is of high-end standard and it's just an absolute winner!
