Favourite Glowy Products

Over the past couple of months, I have been going highlighter crazy! I've just been obsessed with them. I just want my cheekbones to look like Edward Cullen's face when he goes into the sun, is that too much to ask?! But no, seriously, I think I've purchased about 10 highlighters in the past 2 months so here I am, showing you my favourite products that I use to give my cheekbones a gorgeous glow!

In no particular order..
First up is Benefit's 'High Beam'. I really like how this comes in a nail polish style bottle & applicator. The shimmering pink colour is beautiful and leaves you with a gorgeous yet subtle glow. It's the perfect little addition to any make up bag but its price tag is undoubtedly   its downfall. Retailing at £19.50, I'd definitely recommend other highlighters but this one is still a fave for a natural, everyday make up look. 
Next up are my 2 MAC Mineralize Skin Finishes in 'Lightscapade' & a bloggers favourite- 'Soft & Gentle'. These come in powder compact form and are very subtle making them suitable for natural everyday make up looks.
Another fave from MAC is Vanilla pigment.. One of MAC's most popular pigments. This is amazing as it can be used on your face aswell as your eyes and a little goes a long way!
Moving on to my Loreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer.. One of my drugstore faves and a dupe of MAC's Strobe cream! This is the perfect product to apply on your face for a luminous glow if you don't feel like wearing make up but want a little pick-me-up for your face or, to use underneath or blended together with your foundation. This product is meant to be a primer but in all honesty, I wouldn't say this helps my foundation stay on any longer than usual. It just gives your face a subtle glow, perfect for day-time use :)
Make Up Academy Undress Your Skin highlighters. Everyone needs one if not all of these in their life! For only £3, these MAC dupes are definitely 2 of my favourite products EVER! They are extremely pigmented and their embossed design makes them look so expensive. They are just so, SO gorgeous and I'd recommend them to anyone!
Make Up Revolution's 'Pink Lights' Vivid Baked highlighter is definitely a hidden gem in the beauty world. Although they are very familiar to Make Up Academy highlighters- extremely pigmented, embossed design and £3 price tag. There are 3 shades available on Make Up Revolutions website (here)   
Next is my Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in the shade '200 Pink Light'. Sometimes you really can't beat good old drugstore products! (Good quality make up doesn't have to cost a fortune!) This is an extremely shimmery pink liquid with hints of gold. (What girl doesn't like rose-gold, right?) It comes out the tube very quickly so watch out for that if you buy this product and definitely only start with a little amount and build it up for your desired effect as it is very pigmented and would definitely look odd with too much on. I'd recommend this product for a glam night-time look as I think it looks too much for a day look.
Last but not least, the newbie of my expanding highlighter family- Kiko 208 Water Eyeshadow. I FINALLY got this after it was out of stock for MONTHS! This is extremely pigmented but I actually hate using it because I don't want the gorgeous ripple design to fade away- first world problems aye?

So there you have my favourite products that give my face a gorgeous glow! 
Do you have any recommendations?
