Glow Up Products I Love

having dehydrated and sometimes very dull looking skin, I always needed to add a bit of a glow to my face in order to make me look alive and healthy so when the whole highlighting trend came to live a few years ago (i think it was a few years back), I was so excited. despite not doing very blinding highlights on a daily, I just love some nose highlight and a bit on my cheeks too. in today’s post, I’m going to share my favourite products with you which ensure my skin to seriously glow up and make me feel much more put together and like my face actually looks like I had enough sleep and I use at least one of those products on a daily.
let’s glow up together
I never was a huge primer girl because I’m not too much into the very pore minimizing silicone primers because I simply don’t like the feeling on my face. when lily pebbles talked about the becca first light priming filter on her channel, I was instantly drawn to it. I love Becca as a brand and the primers they do always interest me. it’s lilac which looks weird but it works. the primer itself is very liquid and it feels very moisturising on my face. my makeup tends to go on smoother but theres not weird sticky silicone feeling. its main purpose is to make the skin look more radiant and glowy and that’s exactly what it does. it’s no wet looking glow, more like a radiant from within look and it’s beautiful. I do prefer powder highlighters because I do think they are easier to use but theres one liquid highlighter I keep going on about it because it’s just perfect and even more perfect in the summer. its the Nars Illuminator in Copacabana. its the most lovely pearlescent colour that adds such a natural glow the cheeks and in summer there’s nothing quite like it. one of my favourite powder highlighters is no surprise because everyone loves it and rightly so. it’s Becca champagne pop. seriously, its the best champagne colour and it truly makes your face pop when you put it on. it also made me want to try more of the Becca highlighters because I love how fine it is and that it’s not glittery, it’s just the perfect shimmer. now, a new product everyone has been talking about is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy highlighter. I have been following Amra on Instagram for quite a while and let me tell you one thing, that girl just glows so when she announced her collab with ABH I had to have it. so this highlighter truly is unreal. it almost looks wet and like it’s a creamy product but its not. it’s the finest and most shimmery light champagne colour I have ever seen and it goes on like a dream. it can be very blinding but with a fan brush and light hand, it looks so natural and so lovely. it almost melts into the skin and it’s not a streak of product but when the light hits it, you get the perfect shimmer. I’m obsessed. 
so here we have my favourite glow up products. have you tried any of them? what are your favourites?
