Getting My Glow On This Winter - Blogmas Day 11

Tuesday, December 11, 2018


Winter is the time of year when your skin might start looking quite dull and drab, meaning an injection of glow is gladly welcomed! It's the perfect time of year to crack out any highlighters, especially with it being Christmas party season and needing to glam up your look. I thought I'd use this post to share a few of my favourite highlighters for the festive period, hopefully inspiring you to add some shimmer to your makeup this year!

After the sad death of my Mary Loumanizer by The Balm (which was my favourite highlighter of all time before I smashed it a few months ago), I resorted to the apparent dupe and equally as pretty W7 Glowcomotion. Although it's not quite as intense, this yellow-toned champagne shimmer is gorgeous on the skin and can be applied lightly or layered depending on how bold you want to go. Highlighters like this are definitely versatile and will suit a variety of skin tones, adding a gorgeous glow to the face.

For something more pink-toned and frosty, then the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Baby It's Cold Outside Palette is a go-to of mine. This adds a gorgeous radiance to the cheekbones and has more of an icy, frosted finish than the previous one, definitely adding an eye-catching glow. The rosy, shimmery blush looks gorgeous paired with this, giving your cheeks an injection of radiance in the winter when it's most needed.

Speaking of blushers, I really love the Milani Baked Blusher in Rosa Romantica for a subtle flush during the winter. On my pale complexion, it adds some life and colour into my skin without being too bold or obvious that you've caked on blusher, and the shimmer is more of a natural sheen that makes you look glowing but not excessively shimmery, making it the perfect everyday blusher.

Winter is a time of travelling and going home to see friends and family, meaning a travel-friendly makeup collection is necessary although you can't sacrifice that gorgeous glow! Don't worry, you can achieve both with the Tarte Hamptons Weekender Palette, which is a compact palette containing a blusher, highlighter and bronzer that are everything you'll need this holiday season. The highlighter, in particular, is intense and glimmery, giving you that full-on glow perfect for an evening.

If you want more variety and to play around with different shades, then the Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar Palette has plenty on offer, giving you various different highlighter, blush and bronzer shades that are loaded with shimmer. Whether you want something warm toned or more cool and icy, a natural bronzer or something more intense, there's everything you could dream of to create a gorgeous glowing look still at an affordable price.

These are just a few of my favourites products for achieving an eye-catching glow this winter, which is an absolute must-have to transform my skin from dull and lifeless to radiant. I'd love to know your favourites down in the comments, so make sure to let me know! Thank you very much for reading this post, and I'll see you tomorrow as Blogmas continues!
