I absolutely love having a radiant glow to my makeup throughout the year, especially during the fall and winter seasons. With so many highlighters on the market to choose from ranging from powders, liquids and creams…I’ve fallen for two.
The first is Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Radiant Finish and color 50 Dew You?. 50 Dew You? is a warm golden peach color and in my opinion can work for all skin tones. This highlighter is formulated with five forms of coconut and provitamin B5 to aid in skin nourishment and hydration. Typically, I apply it on the bridge of my nose and cheek bones to achieve a natural sun-kissed finished. The consistency is exactly that of a gel with a mix between a pearl and glitter shine. The packaging is quite lovely and comes in a semi-frosted glass bottle with a pump, 0.8 oz/ 24 ml, and priced at $45 online and Sephora stores. I’ve learned my lesson the hard way by pumping too much of the product at one time, so now I’m gentle. A little goes a long way and lasted for an entire year, that’s a huge plus and I don’t mind paying the price.
Another one of my faves is MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in shade Soft & Gentle. Soft & Gentle is a peach bronze color; however, other colors are available in Cheeky Bronze, Global Glow, Gold Deposit, and Lightscapade. This compressed multi-mineral highlighter is also great for the face and body. As a last step in my makeup application, I use this highlighter to give me a natural luminous finish. Packaging will come in the standard glossy MAC compact case. The price per unit is $36 online and MAC Cosmetics stores.
When you’re searching for that perfect highlighter, give these a try, you won’t be disappointed.
