That Summer Glow


Being the oily-complexioned gal I am, I tend to steer clear of anything that promises a glow or dewiness. But if there's one exception to my personal rule, it's highlighters. It's my favorite part of my getting-ready process, and recently I've been embracing more of a glow. (In all honesty, it's more of me giving up on having relatively matte skin during the summer and switching from foundation to BB creams.)

If you're new to the beauty world, let me introduce you to your new highlighting best friend: Becca Cosmetics' Shimmering Skin Perfectors. These puppies are incredibly pigmented, which means a little goes a long way. It's pretty easy to go overboard with them, but in the summer, it seems appropriate to brush on just a little more highlight than usual.

The ones I own are Moonstone (far right), Rose Gold (middle), and Champagne Pop (far left). Moonstone is perfect for the pale girl to use year-round, while Champagne Pop is more of a summer-appropriate hue. Rose Gold, which is gorgeous and a bit intimidating, is best used (at least on those with fairer skin) as a blush topper.

Have you tried any of Becca's highlighters? If not, what highlighters do you use?
