Lately I have had quite a few clients and friends mention my GLOWING SKIN.... no I am not pregnant! But I have been testing and retesting the myriad of shimmer and glow products on the market, to bring you my top three picks. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it! If you can't walk around with perfect lighting on you at all times... then this is the next best option. It's like a perfect blur filter over the skin, and I am completely hooked!
Best Creme Formula- It Cosmetics Hello Light Creme Illuminator It's no secret that I have a major crush on It Cosmetics. And this creme formula compact is no exception- It's the perfect amount of shimmer and really acts like the title implies... It gives a light effect on the skin without looking too glittery. It's great for a more mature face as well and won't settle into fine lines or accentuate them either. For a stronger application use your finger tips to apply, or for a muted look use a fluffy cheek brush.
Best Stick/Budget Formula- Sonia Kushuk Luminosity Highlighter Stick This little gem has been seen on this blog before, but it still passes the test and makes the cut. Available in two colors, this chubby stick applies effortlessly and blends beautifully. It's a dead ringer for the more expensive Watts Up by Benefit... but this one is only $10 at Target and is perfect for precise highlighting along the cheeks and cupids bow. Darker complexions will love the Parisian Sunset color too.
Best Liquid Formula- Merle Norman Liquid Shimmer It had been well over a decade since I had tried any Merle Norman makeup, but I am so glad I found this little gem. If you are looking for a real pop of shimmer, this formula is stunning. The consistency is very spreadable almost like a lightweight gel and it applies perfectly with a stipple brush. I have been wearing it for night time looks and love the life it brings to my face. Check out the MN website to find a store location near you.
