Re: What is the best illuminator/highlighter for your face?

Hi

My favorite brands are all cruelty free . I like Ilia Polka Dots and Moonbeams,W3ll People Bio brightner  and CIndy Joseph Boom Glimmer . I just purchased a new one from Rituel De Fille called Anthelion , At 53 I don't use bronzers or contour but I really enjoy illuminators. I have really pared down my makeup since turning 50 a few years ago but find that a good highlighter can really do a lot to brighten the face

I prefer a powdered highlighter to a cream.  I use Skinn Candlelight Translucent Powder, particularly the Rose version, but the original is also nice.  For me, the highlighting with this product is subtle and tasteful, and doesn't give you the overdone Tin Man glow.

Becca "Shimmering Skin Perfector" in "Moonstone". It's a cream formula and isn't super sparkly, just adds luminosity. The Moonstone color is very natural for my fair/light skin. Becca is the gold standard when it comes to highlighters.

And if you prefer a pinker tone, Cindy-Lou Manizer is also great. Love TheBalm!

Hands down Colourpop has the best highligthers and they have so many colors to chose from. It is Colourpop.com. They are so affordable at $8 for a nice size container and it has such a unique texture, like nothing I have ever used. I love butterfly beach, lunch money, smoke and whistles and stole the show. They are also made in America. You should definitely take a look. Colourpop has excellent eyeshadows also ($5), eyeliner ($6), lipglosses ($6)

I'm using Benefits Girl Meets Pearl and really like it. It works great with my IT CC cream foundation. I love the pinky/gold shimmer to it.  When I use my IT powder foundation (mostly on the weekends to get out the door quick), I use a very inexpensive powder one from Essesnce and it's really pretty!
