One of my favorite looks for this time of year is incredibly dewy skin. Some girls are good with a subtle glow, but I like a highlight that can blind everyone around me. 2017 was definitely the year of the highlight for me, and I’ve got an ever-growing collection that have proved to give me the dewiest skin in the land.
I was unsure whether or not to fall for the Fenty Beauty hype when it launched a couple months ago, but after talking to a few friends I decided to try a couple items from the collection. Two things I ended up grabbing were the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal and the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Starstruck (from the Match Stix Trio in Light), both of which I’m now completely obsessed with. I didn’t think I was going to like the Match Stix at first because they felt really firm to the touch, but they actually blend into the skin quite nicely and are easy to use. I love applying a bit of the Starstruck highlight to my cheekbones first, and then setting it with a dusting of Fire Crystal for an absurdly luminescent effect.
Another stick highlighter that I will forever be in love with is Glossier’s Haloscope in Quartz. This is such a dewy product that really melts into the skin, giving an almost wet-looking glow. Even on days when I don’t wear much or any makeup, I make sure to apply a bit of Haloscope just to help my skin look even healthier.
For a more affordable option that still packs a major punch, I highly recommend Colourpop’s Pressed Powder Highlighter in S’il Vous Play. This is definitely a shade that’s only suitable for the palest of girls, but if you’re as white as I am then you will love this one. It gives the cheeks a beautiful pale silver glow that looks absolutely killer in the sunlight.
The final highlight that I’m absolutely crazy over is the Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter in Blinded By The Light. Not only is the packaging simply to die for, but the highlight itself gives the most ethereal glow. This has been a staple for me during the holidays to achieve the perfect dewy sheen and look truly lit from within.
