I’ve have always and I mean ALWAYS been a highlight girl! It’s just something about that extra glow on my cheekbones, nose and chin that just finishes off my makeup look just perfectly. Highlighters are a great way of adding glow and an appropriate healthy sheen to the face and works fantastically for me and all the girls who love a matte makeup finish, but just want a little extra shimmer on the places we specifically want to highlight.
Lately, I’ve been seeing everyone rave about the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed so naturally (as a makeup lover) I had to see what all the fuss was about! I teamed up with BECCA to try it out in the shade Opal since I adore a rich golden bronze finish which I think works best with my skin tone. They also have Moonstone, Topaz, Champagne Gold and Rose Gold to choose from. The texture itself is beautiful, unlike any highlighter I have ever owned. The powder is buttery and almost creamy in texture which means light application gets the job done – but when has any makeup lover practiced light highlighter application? The more, the better!!!
Spring is here so it’s time to switch up the beauty routine just a bit so I am sharing one of my new favorite products, YSL Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow. If you are anything like me (a makeup lover but a makeup rookie nonetheless) I used to think primer was a useless step and a waste of money, but this product makes all the difference to help add hydration to the skin while ensuring my make-up stays put all day. As the seasons change, our skin changes so having the right products in place to keep our skin moisturized is essential to maintaining that flawless makeup look we all are aiming for.
I have been using the YSL Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow as my primer and I am head over heels in love with it. This beauty is essentially an ultra-lightweight perfecting moisturizer bursting with hydration for up to 72 hours. This glides onto my skin effortlessly, as well as hydrating my skin, diminishing all the dry patches. I apply it all over my face before putting on my make-up and it instantly gives my skin a hydrated feel and the perfect base for my foundation. Because I am always on the go, it’s great knowing that this primer keeps the skin looking radiant and dewy for the day, while running from meeting to meeting or event to event! Big thumbs up from me!
This silky, featherlight cream provides 72 hours of hydration to the skin leaving it looking fresh and rejuvenated. The complexion is left plump, even and youthfully glowing.
