There’s nothing better than having luminous skin! But since you can’t always naturally get a glow going, allow us to show you our favorite bronzers and highlighters.
Glowing skin makes you look healthy and gives you a certain je nais se quoi. Unfortunately, since we can’t live on juice cleanses or consistently get eight hours of sleep a night, we have to fake it ’till we make it! The best way to give your skin a little luminosity is to use a bronzer and highlighter on your face. This one-two punch will give you cheekbones, a defined jaw line, and of course — a glow.
Best Bronzer — Powders & More
To get your glow going, you’ll first need to start with bronzer. Apply it on your temples, the hollows of your cheeks, and the side of your jawline for a contouring effect. We love Le Metier de Beaute Sun Kissed Bronzer, because it’s a perfectly brown-toned bronzer — not too pink and not too orange. Also great for those of us looking for a bronzer with some shimmer is Physicians Formula Bronze Booster. This bronzer leaves us with a very sun-kissed glow. CoverGirl Clean Glow Bronzer is great for those who aren’t sure what shade of bronzer to buy, because one compact contains three customizable colors.
To really define your face, you should use a highlighter in conjunction with a bronzer. The light and dark contrast on your face will make your features really pop. We love Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick in Sparkling Sands because the stick applicator allows us to control the product placement. Plus, the formula is creamy and easy to blend. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Power is amazing — it gives skin a luminous glow without any shimmer. To highlight smaller areas of the face, like the inner corner of the eyes, use Susan Posnick Color Correct, the pencil is the perfect size for any crevice on your face.
We love a good two-for-one deal, so when bronzers and highlighters come in the same package, we are beyond thrilled. Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Bronzer cleverly includes highlighter in the shape of a corset in the center of the package — it will make you feel and look sexy. Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Bronzer/Blush Duo provides you with both and blush and a bronzer, so you can give yourself a pretty pink cheek. Also check out Topshop Bronzer in Break of Day for a bronzer that also gives you a bright pink glow.
