On today’s Makeup Wars, it’s all about the glow. We’re talking about our favorite illuminators – check my picks out below!
Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight: This stick easily wins for easy of application. Just swipe it on, use your fingers to blend, and you’ll be set with a gorgeous buildable pink highlight all day.
Rimmel Kate Sculpting + Highlighting Palette: Although it doesn’t look like much in the swatch, this highlight wins for the subtle lit-from-within glow it produces. Bonus: the contour and blush powder that comes along with makes for an easy full face of makeup from just one palette.
Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights: For a more extreme pop of glow on a budget, Makeup Revolution has an amazing collection of highlighters that won’t break the bank.
Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Eyes & Face: For maximum versatility, this palette multi-tasks with 12 different shades that can be mixed and applied to the face, or used individually for precision highlighting or eyeshadow.
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal: This is a universally flattering go-to illuminator for me. No matter what else I’m wearing, I can always count on this guy to take my glow to the next level.
Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Brilliant: Hourglass has done it again with their Ambient Lighting Powers – this time with a collection specifically designed for highlighting, or “strobing.” All powders can be used both wet and dry for a finish that ranges from somewhat of a subtle illumination (like the swatch below), to something with a little more drama.
