Beauty: Drug Store Cheek Illuminators

Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: Drug Store Cheek IlluminatorsI’m not sure why, but this summer I became very into cheek highlighters and illuminators. Maybe it was from all the youtube videos I would watch of beauty gurus adding a little highlight to their cheek bones, creating this radiant and glowing look that was so lovely. I now feel like my makeup is incomplete unless I have a little highlight on my cheeks, so I thought it would be nice to share with you the drug store products I use most often to create an illuminated look on my cheeks.
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: Drug Store Cheek IlluminatorsRevlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in 200 Pink Light: well this is not a new one to the blog. I love this product, and have had it for quite awhile now. I use this very last, after I have completed my cheeks, to give that extra bit of illumination for the final look. To apply, I squirt a bit onto my fingertip and dab along the cheek bone, blending as much as I can.
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: Drug Store Cheek IlluminatorsRevlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow: this is a newer product for me, but has quickly become part of my daily makeup routine. I like the idea of complimentary shimmer shades that when blended together gives your skin a natural glow. I apply this on my cheek bones, and a little bit on the apple of my cheeks. The colour is in no way over the top, but it adds a flushed look to your face and a nice shimmer when the sun hits your skin.
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: Drug Store Cheek IlluminatorsMaybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Rose Petal: Up until this point I had never really used a cream based blusher, but I have to say, I think I am a convert. It’s likely the packaging that called to me when I picked this product up, I mean, how cute does it look!? But that aside, I would definitely pick it up again. It’s a very subtle, build-able shade, that adds a really darling glow to the cheeks. I apply this after the palette above, just on the apple of my cheeks.

Tell my about your favourite highlighting products. Would you give any of these a go?

    I don’t use highlighter at all, but something tells me I should start. Do you have any suggestions as to what to start with, if you only want one easy product?
    Thank you for sharing this.
    Much love

    Hey, Alex! Been keeping up with your blog for a while and once I found it I actually went through all your post all the way back to the beginning, oops.

    I have been thinking about highlighters lately, but I’m not into the makeup side of youtube. Could you recommend one video or post a before/after photo of yourself with the highlighter? One of my friends loves it, but another claims that it makes little to no difference, so I’m split. 🙂

    Thanks anyways, and keep up with your great quality blog! You’re an inspiration!
