For the body, I've been using the Sol De Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil* which is like molten gold for your limbs - I've seen nothing like it before. I apply it along my shins, across my collarbone and down my forearms and it helps to perk up my body (especially if I've just fake tanned) by giving it a soft highlight. I've used it on my cheekbones too as it says you can use it on the face and I didn't hate it whatsoever; in fact it sat really nicely and isn't like anything I have in my collection. The longevity is amazing on the body and it doesn't transfer onto clothes either. You only use a tiny amount each time, so I can see this bottle lasting me a lifetime.
I had to put the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter* in this line up because I've never known a product to pack so much punch before. It's not glittery and can be toned down if used underneath your foundation, but it no doubt adds an impressive amount of glow. It makes my skin look super healthy and works well with any foundation. I've been mostly using this across my cheekbones, under my eyes and down my forehead to nose before applying my base for a subtle sheen that looked blurred and flawless - obsessed!
I've got so many highlighters now that I'm quite spoilt for choice, but this means I've got quite picky with the ones I use. For a dreamy glow I opt for the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Liquid Wand as it's cream formula blends seamlessly into the skin, whilst the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter* is the perfect powder offering as it doesn't look too unnatural and it's a great match for my skin tone too. One that I've rekindled the love with recently and I have to give a quick mention to is the Too Faced Love Lights which made it's way to the back of my collection as I was just loving so many others, but now I keep applying it when I'm wearing a natural base and I don't want anything too blinding on.
Applying a face powder when you want a glow look can sometimes feel like it's defeating the object, but it's a great way to add a natural boost of radiance and make your makeup stay on longer. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and Bourjois Java Powder are two of my favourites for achieving this as they blur pores, don't accentuate blemishes and still manages to make my face look flawless.
Adding a radiance doesn't always have to be with highlighters, it can be created by using brightening skincare products too. When I think of glow and skincare, my mind always thinks of the Pixi Glow Tonic*, a cult favourite by many and for a very good reason too. I've owned (and still own) many bottles of this, but it's the glycolic acid I always reach for when my skin is in need of a pick me up or it's suffering with breakouts.
Another skincare favourite which has recently been reintroduced into my routine after rediscovering it is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir* which I've been using underneath my makeup, on it's own or over it to refresh my base. It's absolutely beautiful, doesn't leave my skin too tacky and reduces the redness too.
