Get A Winter Glow!

Get A Winter Glow!

Want to sparkle up your winter makeup looks a little? Why don’t you try some serious highlighting? Dewy skin is not anymore “Summer ONLY”. For tips and tricks and to know the best natural highlighters read on. Come on get your winter glow now!

 

Radiant skin is associated with summer, and golden-bronze looks. But wait! What about the Ice Queens and their silvery sparkling looks. There is place for glowing in every season, you just have to know how to do it right!

 

Highlighting is all about playing with lights and reflections, emphasizing your features and creating a radiant healthy (just moisturized) look. To reach this you have to know which products to use and where to apply them.

There are three most important areas what we usually highlight when creating a makeup look:

  • Top of the cheekbones + temples
  • Brow bones
  • Cupid’s bow

 

In addition you can apply a little on the forehead and on the bridge of your nose as well. However when applying a glowy base or primer products you can use them all over your face under your foundation. When blending them into one delicate layer it will look like your skin is naturally glowing and luminescent.

 

You can use moisturizers “pimped” with sparkles, skin illuminators, or any other radiance boosting bases and primers, highlighter liquids, gels or illuminating powders etc. It’s important to know your skin tones when selecting highlighting products; pinkish highlighters are not working well on yellowish undertones but match perfectly with very pale skin. Goldish highlighters are great with olive and yellow undertones.

 

Before buying any kind of highlighting products, (let’s say bases, highlighters or powders) always check on the back of your hand if they are blending well and not too obvious and sparkling. Keep that in mind that we are trying to reach a very natural look!

 

Best Natural Highlighters

 

I have a couple of recommendations, some products that I’m using regularly and really satisfied with them and some that has very great “name” amongst the online community of green beauty lovers;

 

Lily Lolo- Sculpt & Glow Contour Duo (21 EUR)

 

This product is one of my favourite when it comes to highlighting. The duo comes with a darker matt shade for contouring and a sparkly (yet very subtle) highlighter to emphasize your features. I’m using this kit on a daily basis, and I’m super happy with the simple, natural glow it gives. I put it on my cheeks, and on my eyelids as an “eyeshadow” and it looks amazing.

RMS Beauty – Living Luminizer (31 USD)

 

This must be the most famous highlighter in the green beauty world, and it really has it all. It’s a creamy highlighter that provides an ethereal glow. A little goes a long way, one tap into the pot and then to the “designated areas” and BAMM it’s a whole new world. My favourite feature of this product is the fact that how easily it blends, it’s melting into your skin…simply wonderful.

INIKA – Certified Organic Light Reflecting Cream (25,5 EUR)

 

This wonderful products is great, because you can use it on it’s own – dab it to the areas mentioned above – or if you mix a drop into your liquid foundation you can use it to create a full illuminating base. It’s creamy texture works well with a brush or simply with your fingertips too.

Lavera – Soft Glowing Highlighter (14,5 EUR)

 

I’m more and more into Lavera makeup products these days. I was a big fan of their lipstick range and then I started to explore their face range and found great concealer and also this fab little highlighter cream. It’s available in 2 shades, so either you have warm or cool undertones in your complexion you’ll find a match. That’s also a benefit that it’s very affordable, so even if you are not wearing highlighter on a daily basis it worth the investment.

100% Pure – Luminating Cream (22 EUR)

 

It’s an easy to apply and very subtle little highlighter that’s available in 3 different shades (northern light for cooler, moonlight for pearly white glow, and starlight for the warmer undertones). It comes in a “lipgloss” kinda packaging with a sponge headed applicator, so you can dot it in the areas you’d like to “embrace” and then dab it with your fingertips until it blends equally.
