Glowing Skin for Spring

So I think it's fair to say that I've been a bit bored of winter, I can't wait for it to be warmer and summery. And I've certainly noticed that it is getting a lot sunnier nowadays. Which means spring is here! My favourite trends for spring time is dewy and glowing skin and also pink is my favourite for spring! (Hint for my next post perhaps?) So I have put together some of my favourite products that I love to use to give my skin that radiant look.

Benefit High Beam and Watts Up
These two mini Benefit highlighters are perfect to make your cheekbones look glowing. They are also really easy to use; the High Beam is a liquid highlighter which means you only need a tiny amount for it to work. The Watts Up is a stick so you can easily swipe it on your cheeks and blend for glowing cheek bones.

Rimmel Wake me Up Concealer
One of my favourite concealers is the Rimmel Wake me Up, purely because it is so brightening. It contains tiny shimmer particles (don't worry it's hardly noticeable) which help to reflect light. This gives your skin a really brightened effect and helps to brighten the under eyes and cheek bone area. Also, this concealer is really affordable and blends really nicely.

Sleek Contour Palette (Highlight)
One of my favourite contour palettes is the Sleek palette. I think I've talked about this a number of times on my blog, so I won't go into too much detail. But I like to use the highlighter in this sometimes to highlight my cheeks. It is a powder highlighter so it could look a bit unnatural if you use too much. But it's quite a light and not too pigmented which I think is a good thing but I suppose it could also be a bad thing. 

Benefit That Gal Primer
Again, another Benefit mini of mine. But this time it's a primer. This primer is supposed to be illuminating and give your skin a radiant look. I will admit, it is quite a subtle illuminating primer, but I would rather have it subtle than too strong! Not only is it slightly brightening, but it also helps keep my makeup on which is a bonus.

So as you can see, there is a wide range of products that can help give glowy skin, from concealers to primers to highlighters! Thank you for reading, what are your favourite highlighters?
