I don’t think it’s any secret that I love a good illuminator. I think that might be the one thing I take to a desert island (it used to be mascara…but a good illuminator is now my ONE thing, we all have that one thing…right?). It’s literally the best thing ever invented in my opinion. Can you say photoshop for the face? I’m so into that glowy, dewy look and I think we all could use a little help in that department. The following are some of my favorites!
Benefit High Beam is easy to apply and so versatile. It looks beautiful added at the end to create pretty highlighted areas or you can even mix a small drop into your foundation for an all over glowy look. It is light, shimmery and subtle. A little goes a long way so one bottle will last a long time. The bottle for this highlighter has a brush that makes it easy to apply and allows you to control how much you use.
Wild & Radiant Baked Illuminating and Bronzing Palette works wet or dry to warm up skin tones. This baked palette is highly pigmented and makes skin look beautiful. Click here to read my review of this product!
True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator is the ultimate in radiant skin. This powder is designed to enhance key features or illuminate all-over. True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator enhances all skintones and undertones. It comes in 3 colors : Ice, Rose and Golden. This is one of my go to’s and it always adds those finishing touches that give you that added something.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighting Creme Duo has a thicker consistency but goes on beautifully. The liquid shimmer hydrates without ever looking greasy or chalky. It comes with a creme blush has a sheer, warm glow and blends easily for a flawless finish. Here’s the thing…it looks like this product has been discontinued BUT Anastasia has released 4 new illuminator compacts and they look gorgeous.
So Hollywood – A shimmery bronze hue that flatters deeper skin tones.
Peach Nectar – A warm, rose gold that flatters light skin tones.
Starlight – A sheer, luminescent white that flatters all skin tones.
Riviera – A sun-kissed coppery hue that flatters medium to tan skin tones.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer is obviously a concealer but it had to make this list because it’s seriously a product that I can’t live without. It brightens your face and erases dark circles and illuminates as it conceals any imperfections. Basically it’s a 2 for 1…brightens skin and covers problem areas. For the price it is a complete and total must have. It comes in 6 skintones and has the best packaging with a twist tube and brush applicator so you only use what you need.
