I’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.
Revlon 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.
Revlon 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.
Maybelline 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?
