Give Me The Glow: My Favourite Highlighters

glow products

I love glowy skin, and I love playing around with my favourite highlighters to get that poppin’ glow. I use the L’oreal True Match Highlighter in Golden Glow and the Maybelliene Strobing Stick on bare skin before I put on any of my base makeup. This combination gives me a really nice and subtle dewy effect, and it’s a really good base to work with. 

I’ve mentioned the Elizabeth Arden Liquid Highlighter in a previous post, and I am still loving it. It is such a gorgeous golden colour, and so so creamy and pigmented. I typically use it after I’ve applied my base makeup with a damp beauty blender, and it gives such a nice sheen to the skin. This is a really buildable product and I find myself reaching for it whenever I’m doing my makeup. Plus it smells amazing.

The Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Highlighter in Gilded Honey is definitely one of my all time favourites; I mean I used it on my wedding day (which says it all). I bought this highlighter a few months ago, and I fell in love with it from the first use. It’s very pigmented, but I would 100% recommend using it with a damp beauty blender and topping it off with some setting spray, if you really want to slay all day. My current favourite setting sprays are the Smashbox Water Primer and the Urban Decay Setting Spray.

The Sleek Highlight Palette is so beautiful, and super pigmented. There are four gorgeous colours to choose from, and I love them all. I love using these highlighters for both a minimal makeup day to give my skin a healthy glow and for full on glam. I use the lightest highlight shade for my brow bone, cupids bow and the centre of my nose, and a combination of the purpley/peachy shades for the tops of my cheeks (yeah, you guessed it, with a beauty blender). 

I swatched the L’oreal Lumiere Eyeshadow in 500 Gold Mania in Boots, and it was so pigmented that I couldn’t not buy it. This eyeshadow is super long lasting, and because it’s so creamy it’s really easy to blend. This eyeshadow is perfect if you want to glow up on a budget

I’ve seen so many other highlighters that I just need in my life (because I’m practically a makeup magpie). I mean have you seen the Limited Edition Ofra Cosmetics Highlighter in Blissful? And the Anastasia Ultimate Glow Kit which just looks amazing. Oh, and how can I forget, the Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Opal. I just want to slay my highlight game, and make sure I glow up everyday. 


Thanks for reading everyone, let me know what products you use to get that glowy goddess look. I’m always looking to expand my highlight collection.
