having skin that radiates a "je ne sais quoi" kind of glow is quite enviable. through a healthy diet, lots of rest, and a great skincare routine you can achieve this glow naturally. but then there are the days when you need a little help (late night cocktails with friends, Back to the Future movie marathon on Peachtree TV – you know – those times!)
many cosmetics brands have illuminating products as part of their line, and luckily for those who prefer natural and organic lines, illuminating natural products are easy to find as well.
i'm a very big fan of rms beauty's living luminizer. rms beauty is the leading line for those who want a very true and organic product. it's neither too sticky, too greasy or too glittery … the perfect pearly white highlighter.
if you like a more bronzy glow, Josie Maran Cosmetics is releasing it's new Argan Oil Illuminzer which contains – you guessed it – her secret, swear-by-it, ingredient, argan oil. instead of being pearly white or pinky, this one is tinted with bronze – great for a summer look!
if you rather work with powder formulas, you can't go wrong with bareMinerals Illuminated Mineral Veil. it's a fan favourite for it's ability to finish off your makeup with an ethereal glow and a "is that airbrush?" kind of look.
