Winter Glow at Three Different Price Points


Glowy, rosy, golden skin is one of my obsessions. I can't even leave the house without a swipe of highlighter, and I have no remorse, my friends! I love the way it reflects the light and adds a bursting luminosity.  I don't judge if you're more of a matte gal, I can appreciate it all, but a dewy glow is just what I've been feeling as of late. You can add it to the inner corners of your eyes for a real pop,  use it above and under your eyebrows for a life, plump up your lips by adding it to the cupid's bow (middle portion of your upper lip), and the list goes on! There are a few products that have become my go-tos, and it doesn't matter your budget, I have a product for you at every price point! Let's break it down, shall we? Seven products, three categories (worth the splurge, affordable and fab, and drugstore find) and all are shining stars!

SKINCARE

Dullness and uneven skin tones are no match! I love the Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster for multiple reasons. It smells so lovely, so light and you can feel it working into the skin. How does it restore radiance? With one of my favourite ingredients- vitamin C of course! Apply before moisturizer or mix in with your moisturizer (my favourite right now is the Dior Capture Youth Advanced Cream). Your skin will just glow from the inside out, total hydration and no gimmick. Bonus-- formulated with mostly natural ingredients, it delays signs of aging, because it really is never too early to start fighting the inevitable!

I've been loving this moisturizer lately too. It combats stressors and amps up on the glow. It contains fermented black tea (aka kombucha) and blueberry extracts and thermal water. Talk about antioxidants! Not only does it reduce fine lines, but it boosts glow and tightens the skin. I always pair with the Vichy Anti-Fatigue Eye Care. It actually is the best eye stick I've used! It contains caffeine and licorice root to blur fine lines and rid dark shadows. It gives off such a shimmer, and it's a must-have. Combine the two and you will be glowing.

Perfect if you want the glow, but not necessarily the shimmer or shine. I love adding the balm after the Rose Essence Caviar. It creates a dewy look that is extremely hydrating and supple. You know that look like you've slept in your makeup and your face is just so lovely? Yes, that's the dew! Moisturizes the skin, brightens and revitalizes all in one go. Tip-- don't rub it in, just pat on the skin. 

FACE

First off, the Lumi Glow line by L'Oreal. Holy GLOW is right! All I do is add a drop to my moisturizer, or if I am wearing makeup that day, my foundation and it gives you a great dewy glow from a lit from within look. It even comes in two shades-- Daybreak and Golden Hour. I've been using Daybreak as it feels more cool, perfect for the daytime, but Golden Hour would be perfect to accent a tan (hi, summer!).

Same same, but different.  This one is a use all over lotion. This liquid highlight comes in three shades and it can totally be worn alone or over makeup. It creates a lovely all over glow and it extremely lightweight. You can even accent with it if you'd like. It gives off a fresh glow, not too overpowering, perfect for the day-to-day!

This multi-use pallet was maybe made for me? Nine shades of shimmery powder to cream beautifulness!  It has you covered with every shade-- peach tones, rose tones, golden tones, and bronze tones, perfect for highlighting and brighten. I love using it on the eyelids and on the cheeks. Use it on the inner corner of your eyes for the ultimate effect! Tip-- add a swipe of Pixi Lip Icing on your lips after you highlight the cupid's bow. The sweet, luminous lip gloss adds the perfect touch to any colour. It's the perfect top coat!

Holographic, glittery and fabulous! For such light shades I can't believe how pigmented they are! My faves are the top three, Rave, Elektra, and Aeyrn Sun.  I've already dabbled into these pastels but I know they will be so lovely for spring and summer. The shades really are long lasting, and no fall out to be found!

Are you ready to get your glow on? Are there any products totally calling your name? Let me know!
