Summer is synonymous with glowing skin and while the Polar Vortex left me with a huge need for tons of luminosity in my skin, my product choices vary from cold to warm weather.  (See my winter choices here.)

Top Summer Highlighters NARS, Becca, Topshop

1) Powder:  NARS Albatross  A stunning gold gleam from an uber soft and very blendable powder.

2)  Cream:  Topshop Glow in Gleam  A whitened rose gold cream that I place with fingers and blend with a stiff domed foundation blush.

3)  Liquid: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal  A creamy liquid with a champagne hue that can be applied with fluffy or stiff brushes.



For an every day look I keep illuminators on the top of my cheek bones and occasionally bring them in a ‘C’ shape over the tail of my eyebrow.  For a more glamorous look, I’ll complete the ‘C,’ run it down the bridge of my nose, along my cupid’s bow, and dot it at the center of my chin.  I avoid the center of my forehead in summer as my skin tends to naturally “glow” in the humidity.

Highlighted summer skin is at its peak right now and I’m loving every minute of it.

What are your favorite highlighters?  Do you have a preference for powder, cream, or liquid?
