All the Shimmer; All the Glow

If you haven’t been able to tell from my posts [on here, Instagram, anywhere, really], I’m very much one for glossy, glowy, shimmering things. Especially when the temperature starts to creep above 70 – which, it has here in NY!

One of my beautiful friends recently told me she wants me to do her makeup sometime because she likes how I add a lot of glow to my own look. So, I figured I’d share my current favorite glow-getters on here – the products I have been reaching for constantly to perk my skin up, make my eyes look brighter and more awake, etc.

  1. Stila’s Soul Palette – the second from the top shimmering shade on the left hand side of this palette has become my HOLY GRAIL AF inner corner highlight. Seriously, I haven’t achieved the same effect with any other product. It makes eyes pop like you’ve never seen, people. Trust.
  2. Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Palette – ok ok, I know, this guy is expensive. BUT. You can use it on cheeks, eyes, all over the face – anywhere. I love using the shade…shade [awkward] on the center of my lids for a slightly glossy eye look. I am also OBSESSED with the illuminate shade for a super natural dewy highlight on the tops of cheek bones, bridge of the nose, and cupid’s bow.
  3. Tom Ford Skin Illuminator – another TF product! It’s so good though and I’ve been using it everyday, so, I had to include it. It is a golden peachy-pink, slightly shimmering fluid that I apply generously to my cheeks for a super pretty, lit-from-within glow. I love how I can wear it on its own for a more natural look, or, apply it overtop of blush.
  4. Smashbox LA Lights in Silver Lake Sunset – an old fave here, I’m gonna go ahead and say this is one of my favorite all-time blushes. It is such an insanely pretty peachy pink glowy shade [can you tell what colors I like to slap on my face?] that gives my cheeks life.

And that’s all for now, folks. What are your favorite highlight-y, glowy products? Do tell in the comments 😉

    I haven’t tried the TF product – Well, I do have the Soleil Palette from last year and I love the highlighter in that one. I almost always turn to my Hourglass Strobing Powders. I love the Hourglass so much! They are always just right!
