charm is a glow within a woman that casts a most becoming light on others.

One thing I love? Glowy skin. Thank goodness for highlights and illuminators! On my last shopping trip, I picked up a few new things: accessories and yes, some cheek products to give my skin that glow I've been dreaming of! I already have a few highlighting products in my collection already but these were a little bit different.

Let's start with my mini Top Shop haul. I bought a pair of statement earrings and a ring (on sale...always a plus) and Glow, a cream highlight.



What do I love about the highlight? Well for starters, it's super creamy and it blends really well on the skin. Most importantly, it looks amazing! It adds tons of glow and gives the skin a dewy finish. I've definitely been trying to use this more often.

Other glow boosting products I've been using came from (shockingly) Forever 21. I've never tried any of their makeup before, but I picked these two up on a whim. They are: a Baked Blush and the Face Illuminator.



When it comes to cheek products, I usually find them hard to resist. (Which is how I ended up buying these from Forever 21 the last time I was there!) I had low expectations but was actually pleasantly surprised by these! The baked blush shade is soft and pretty - and has a nice amount of glow to it.

My favourite product, though, has to be the Face Illuminator. It's pretty much a golden-toned highlight. It looks great over a blush shade for an extra pop of colour or used along the cheekbones for some added shine.

As you can tell, I am all about the cheeks! To see the Top Shop Glow in action, check out this recent makeup look. I added a touch of it to the top of my cheeks and loved the result.


Do you love glowy skin? What is your favourite highlighter?

  1. Great purchases from TOPSHOP! I adore glowy skin! Just totally makes me feel like a goddess!
    I haven't used a face illuminator but usually use Revlon and Wet n Wild's bronzer for highlighting! You look amazing!

    side question, are there any make up brands in Canada that are not available in the US and vice versa?

  5. I love glowy skin too, but I hardly do anything about it. I've got only 1 (Pupa) highlighter at the moment and I'm not even sure I know how to use it :-D
