That Summer Glow: The best highlighters for summer

Summer is fast approaching and it’s all about that glowy skin. To achieve that sun kissed dewy look, I use bronze/golden highlighters either liquid or powder. I can admit sometimes I probably go overboard with the highlight but hey too much highlighter never hurt anybody right?? So the more the merrier I say! Below are my favorite highlighters, I switch them out depending on my mood or the look i’m going for also I prefer a mix of liquid & powder for a more intensified highlight. Although I’m obsessed with my highlighters, I love trying new ones, what are some of your favs…Comment below!  *My lip color is “Lady Balls” by Too Faced.*

1. Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter  in You light up my life”

This is a golden highlighter that I find to be on the softer side. Perfect for a daytime no-makeup, makeup look. I prefer this golden tone on my brown skin, but there are 2 other lighter shades that are better suited for more fair skin tones.

2. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in “Topaz”
My skin can tends to be on the dryer side sometimes, so a liquid highlighter comes in handy for the days i’m feeling a bit dry. This bronzy liquid is great for achieving a dewy glow, I also like using this as a base under my powder highlighters for a more intensified highlight, I usually go for this look at night. I use the shade Topaz which is great for Brown to darker skin tones.

3.  Nars Illuminating Loose Powder in “Orgasm”

This highlighter is new to my collection but has quickly become a fav. It’s a a multi-purpose loose powder that I use on my cheeks, eyes and sometimes on my body mixed with lotion. It is a peachy rose gold shade and is the shimmering version of the Nars orgasm blush that everyone loves, perfect for all skin tones.

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in “Sunkissed

Last but definitely not least is my go to highlighter. I love this palette cause it gives me options and I can mix them, my favorite combo is mixing bronzed with moonstone on top. It’s super pigmented and a little goes a long way. There’s also a highlight for the fairest complexions to the darkest, so anyone can purchase this.

    I have to try Becca because I love the foundation but I tend lean towards liquid highlighters because of my dry skin too.
