Brighter (glowing) Days!

I have to admit I am on this glowing dewy skin craze!! Truthfully, for most of my life I have been all about a matte foundation and making sure I always had a powder with me to touch things up. But oh how things have changed.

I’m not sure if it is the fact that it is summer, or that I have always had a love for all things sparkly, but I can’t stop getting that glow. I have a few different products that I have been loving to get a nice highlight and a subtle all over glow that leaves my skin looking natural and healthy, and better yet like I have little to no makeup on (even if I have a good amount).

Lately I have been using (and loving) the new Tarte Brighter Days highlighting moisturizer. I will say if you are looking for a primer to really hold makeup on this product is not going to get you there, BUT if you are looking to add a glow to any foundation I highly recommend using this product under your product of choice.

Better yet, I have been loving the Maybelline “Fit Me Dewy and Smooth” Foundation. Not only is it great coverage and long lasting but it achieves a natural glow without using the brighter days, and leaves me looking fresh faced and ready for the day. I usually apply the foundation with a damp beauty blender but in  a pinch when I can’t find mine, a flat top foundation brush also works wonders!!

Last but certainly not least, if you’re feeling bold and brave and want to highlight with your glow I have a few highlighters I have been loving. In no particular order they are

  1. Colour Pop Super Shock Highlight in Lunch Money
  2. LA Lights: Hollywood and Highlight stick by Smashbox 
  3. Tarte’s: Tarteist Pro-Glow to Go highlight and contour set 

All three of these products give your skin a bright and stunning highlight. The Colour Pop and Smashbox products are both soft solid formulas that glide on easily, while the Tarte highlighters are in a powder form that dust on for a fine finish. No matter which one you choose you will be lift looking bright and healthy!


These are just a few of my favorite products! Let me know if you have any that you love to use that you think I should try!!
