Natural Glow Products


Hey everyone!

Highlighters are still very popular in our makeup routines, and lately, brands have been coming up with the weirdest colours and holographic sheens that you can imagine.

If you are like me, and you still prefer a natural glow over anything: I've got you covered! I've gathered some of my absolute favourite, natural-looking glow-getters in my collection.

None of these are new releases or anything, they are more of a holy-grail type of product.
Let's see how many times I can use the word "glow" in one blog post, shall we?

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush - Luminous Flush

Yes, I am starting of with a blush, but solely because this is a glowy one, without being shimmery or sparkly. I believe that the light colour running through it is a powder you can get on its own as well, but I have never looked into that. Hourglass is known for their natural glow powders, with the Ambient Lighting range that's ever growing. There used to be a handful of powders and blushes when I first got this one, and since then they've added actual highlighters, more blushes and an entire range of bronzers (which to me, all look the same). This is one of my absolute favourite blushes, even though it's not a matte one. If you're looking for a quick fix product, this is the one to go for. You don't even have to bother with a highlighter when you're wearing this, so this is for all my low-maintenance readers ;-)

Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam

This is a mini-size, which I got in a set over Christmas. If you're not a powder girl, you might really like this one, dotted on the high points of the cheeks. It's a pink toned, non-shimmery liquid highlighter, and I can't even explain this product but you have to check it out for yourself! It won't do wonders, but it just gives that bit of radiance to the skin, and some of us are all about that.

Benefit Watt's Up highlighter

This came in the same set as Shy Beam, which explains why it's in a pot and not a stick like the full size. I've gone through an entire full size of this before, and it never looked like I was wearing too much. It's such a soft and subtle shade, and I can see it working for a lot of different skin tones as well. It's very long-lasting, too! I always liked using this as a base for a powder highlighter, to make sure that one sticks around even longer. This is the perfect shade to do that with, I've found.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

The highlighter in here is just as amazing as it looks in the tin, it's super natural looking and gives the nicest glow to the skin. If you're not about an intense highlight, this is always the first one that pops into my head when I think of a natural highlighter. I love that it comes with the contour shade as well, and I've used it to death back in the days. I don't reach for it as often as I should anymore, but regularly grab for the highlighter when I'm going out, even to pop into the inner corners of my eyes.

YSL Touche Eclat

The liquid highlighter, often mistaken for an undereye concealer. This is much like Dandelion, a liquid without shimmer, but a definite glow-giver. Because it doesn't have any shimmer running through, it is very natural looking and instantly brightens your entire complexion. I often use it right underneath the eyes to give it a radiant look, but always in combination with an actual concealer first. We don't want to highlight our dark circles, now do we? Make sure to cover them up first, and don't apply the Touche Eclat too close to your eyes.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Moonstone

I've had this one for such a long time now as well, and this is probably the most "out-there" in this post. It's still very subtle compared to most highlighters out there, but if you want to step out of the no-shimmer bubble for going out, for example, I'd say this is the most real-looking highlighter in town. The quality of this is amazing, and the fact that it's buildable is why I've included it in this post. On a day to day basis, I will apply this with a fan brush and it will look really subtle, if I want my highlighter to be a bit more noticeable, I will take a denser tapered cheek brush and it will pick up more pigment, so it really packs a punch. It's really all about how you apply this product, and you'll see it will never look too intense, now matter how you put it on your face. That's why this is still one of my absolute favourites, to this day!

Which highlighters do you think are very natural looking, and are missing from this list? Let me know in the comments, and I might find some gems in your recommendations!

Lots of love,
