The Party Glow.

Wednesday, December 21, 2016
I loove to have dewy, glowing skin when it comes to getting ready for a party. I find it's so easy to look flat and caked in makeup when you layer on the powder to make sure your foundation lasts all night, so it's nice to use a few more glow inducing products along the way. I adore highlighters, that is no secret, so I really go all out around Christmas...

This Works Energy Bank Skin Glow Serum: For me, getting the glow starts with the skincare. In the morning I use a range of products which will brighten and add life back into my dull skin, and this is one of my favourites. From the get-go I knew I would love this. It's a gorgeous golden, pearly shade and a very lightweight consistency, giving your skin a natural glow from within. Even on a no makeup day your skin will still look fab!

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow: I'm definitely all about the golden shades this year, you will be able to see that trend as the post goes on. Primers are my favourite way to add glow to the skin. You can mix them in with your foundation or use them before, and this one from CT works well whichever way you choose. I find this more subtle than the next one I'm going to share, but I love it for an everyday glow.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter: This is such a fab one for a night out. It's very dewy and gives off slightly more glow than the previous one. Becca are known for their amazing highlighters, so this one didn't disappoint. It's, again, a golden tone and looks so beautiful on the skin.

Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter: This is where the hardcore glow comes into play...I adore this highlighter when I want something that is really going to show up and make me look like a lighthouse. It's so pigmented and the beautiful golden shimmers shine amazingly on the tops of the cheekbones. This is such a party essential for me.

TOPSHOP Glow Cream Highlighter: If you're not a fan of powder products, this highlighter from TOPSHOP is lovely and also really affordable. I find that applying this with my fingers is the best way so I don't move too much of my foundation underneath. It blends into the skin really well, as all cream products do, and looks more natural than some powder highlighters on the market.

Benefit Watts Up: This is my all time favourite cream highlighter, it's a gorgeous champagne gold shade, it blends so well, and I'm always happy with my skin after using this. The stick format makes its really easy to apply, although I don't blend it in with the funny little sponge on the other end, I tend to use a small face brush. The colour is so perfect and I find I can wear it during the day, and then build it for the evenings.
