All is a glow...

Something I love is a good highlighter. 

It's a great way to make you feel refreshed, awake and very pretty.
You want to look glowy not sweaty with a soft shimmer not glitter!

I've been playing around with lots of different types of highlighters and I've rounded up my favorites just in time for the warmer seasons.

This stuff... 

While assisting the fabulously talented Gucci Westman, I learned quickly that she loved to use this highlighter for the face and the body. And with good reason... 

This is such a beautiful product. The sheen is subtle, but catches the light beautifully. Pop it onto your cheekbones for that instant glow. They offer 5 different shades, from white opal, to golden to blush toned. So whatever your skin tone, you can find the perfect compliment!

Another great liquid highlighter!
This is more gold toned so it will work on many skin colors. It has a soft glow without being overpowering. Another perk to this, is Josie Maran's products are all cruelty free, and chemical free. Can't beat that!

Want a quick powder highlight? Try this one from The Balm Cosmetics. I do love this illuminator. It has a little more punch to it, but blends out beautifully. I love to pop this one on my cheekbones, and inner corners of my eyes. It's a great option to keep in your makeup bag for a quick pick me up, and the packaging is so cute!

Here is a gorgeous cream highlight.
This little pot of product will go a long way. The beauty of the RMS living luminizer is how subtle it is. It literally just looks like your skin is naturally catching the light! Which is exactly what you want! Another perk of the cream is that it is great for portability.

There you have it, my favorite illuminators. Give 'em a try and let me know what you think in the comments!
