GET THE GLOW ON A BUDGET THIS SPRING.



There's nothing I love more than having glowy skin and a blinding highlight all year round, but particularly in the warmer months. I know a lot of highlights, particularly the more long wearing and opaque highlights can be quite pricey, so I thought I would share my favourite drugstore products thatI use to get glowy skin for the Spring and how you can too!


I will be sharing a glowy skin look without any foundation, but obviously you can use foundation / concealer if you want more coverage.


Firstly, primer! Start with a base thats going to brighten your skin ... you don't necessarily need to use a shimmery primers, but either a lavender or peach one will do the job. This Revolution PRO Radiant Peach Primer will help to illuminate the skin and also give it a sun kissed glow. 


The Revolution Liquid Highlighter has been on my wishlist for soo long now and it's the perfect dupe for the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops and the Iconic Illuminators and the Revolution ones are like  1/4 of the price at just £8. I finally decided to pick this up a couple of weeks ago and I'm soo ready to use this throughout the Spring and Summer months. I picked up the shade Liquid Starlight as it's light, but pink-y colour which is perfect for my skin tone.

I will be writing a full review for this Highlighter soon, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled if you would like to see my full thoughts on this!! 


If you're looking for a more bronze-y glow, whether you have a tan or you have a darker skin tone, this No7 Instant Radiance Bronzing Highlighter would be perfect! As I'm quite pale, I usually only use this when I'm on holiday and it works really well, not only on the face but on the body too. 


I've never really been a big fan of blush, other than glowy blushes, but recently I've started using them a whole lot more and this Milani Baked Blush in the shade Luminoso is one of my all time favourites. These baked blushes really remind me of the MAC Mineralize Blushes and for just over half the price you can get this one which is just the same, if not better! Although it looks pink-y in the photo, it comes out quite peachy and it looks perfect with a tan. The colour pay off from this is really good, but it's super easy to blend so you can have a slight glow or a more intense looks, depending on your preference. 


Using a powder highlight over top of a liquid highlight gives it something to stick too and also it further intensifies it, which I really love. I chose the Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Peach Lights, which has a pale pink-y glow, just like the Liquid Highlighter and these will both compliment each other

As you can see from this post, I'm all over Revolution products and I couldn't recommend them enough as they have the performance of high-end products (probably even better than most high end brands) and the price tag of high street products ... what's not to love?


If you're looking to bronze up your look and have the sun kissed look, a cream bronzer can do the job as it'll keep the natural glowy look that we're aiming for, but you can also contour with this, as well as achieving the look you want by using a little or a lot. This is the W7 Make Up and Glow Bronzing Base , which is only £7.95. If you would like to see my full review of this you can click here!

So there you have it, these are the products that I use to get seriously glowy skin, I hope you enjoyed!!


Until Next Time,
Luci
