When it comes to getting a glow, I do more often than not like going all out. Liquid highlighters used to terrify me, I couldn’t imagine taking time doing your whole face and then messing up. Thankfully, I’ve never had that problem. I sometimes used liquid highlighters alone or top them up with a powder; nonetheless they are my favourite for a more natural glow.
Powder highlighters can sometimes sit on the skin and become too powdery, or they don’t quite last long enough. I find liquid highlighters can appear more natural but beaming if you use them right, and you can use them multiple ways. My favourites are to blend on the high points after applying the rest of your makeup; I tend to do this with a beauty blender. Or, I use it under or with my foundation for a healthy glow. Let me share with you my absolute favourites.
A GLOWY BASE
If you’re more about a glowy base rather than using a highlighter, I would suggest two products to you, one affordable and one more luxury. First is the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer, this is a product I’ve had in my makeup stash for a very long time and still go back to it quite often. This is a fluid champagne shade primer, it doesn’t add colour to your skin but gives the most gorgeous radiant glow. I apply this all over, but if you suffer with really oily skin then I’d apply it only to the less oily areas. You can also mix this in with your foundation. For a primer that will blur your imperfections but at the same time give you all over radiance, the Yves Saint Laurent Touché buy priligy online Eclat Blur Primer is the one. This gel like formula works to blur your pores whilst adding a natural ‘lit-from-within’ glow – this is an everyday favourite of mine and isn’t quite as dewy as the L’Oreal one, but both are just as moisturising.
A DRUGSTORE DUPE
An old favourite of mine is Benefit’s High Beam, one that most beauty lovers will know of. This is a liquid glowing pink highlighter, which is quite opalescent on the skin and gives a gorgeous glow. I apply this with a beauty blender to the high points of my face, and you can really build this for an intense highlight. If you like to build with powder you can do so to. Recently, I discovered a very similar to dupe to this, both in formula, performativity and colour. It’s the Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid. Again, this is a pink liquid highlighter that I apply the same way; it gives the same coverage and blendability, and is just a fraction of the price. So, if you’re new to liquid highlighters and don’t want to fork out a fortune, this is an amazing alternative to the Benefit liquid highlighters.
A GOLDEN GODDESS GLOW
A product that I’ve had my eye on forever and finally recently picked up is the Cover FX Drops, which I heard the most amazing things about. It really didn’t disappoint. I picked up the shade Sunlight, the perfect golden bronze shade. I love this one most as it’s a multi-tasker, its perfect to use with your foundation or on top. This is the one for an ultimate ‘Instagram glow’ as it gives the most flawless beaming highlight that I just can’t get enough of.
