I found the perfect everyday highlighter for my skin tone! The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette provides a subtle, glow-from-within look that is natural enough even for the work place. The powders are so silky and blendable, you won’t see obvious specks of shimmer on your face.
Dim Light: I dust over the center of my face – forehead, bridge of nose, and lower cheeks with the Real Techniques Setting Brush.
Incandescent Light: This is the brightening powder in the palette, so I use the Sigma F35 Highlighter Brush to swipe under eyes, over cheekbones, on tip of nose, and cupid’s bow of the upper lip.
Radiant Light: This is the darkest shade in the palette, so I lightly layer it over my contour with the Too Faced Powder Brush.
The hype around the Glossier Boy Brow is real! The Boy Brow is a tinted gel that colors, tames, and thickens your brows. I fill in some sparser areas first with my trusted Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony with the ABH #12 Brush. Then I brush the Boy Brow in Black through the hairs, and I love how feathery, natural, and thick it makes my brows look!
I’m too lazy to double cleanse, so I love that this Clinique Cleansing Balm takes off all my makeup (liquid eyeliner included) and cleans the face. Scrape a bit of the balm and rub onto a dry face — a little goes a long way! It doesn’t leave a greasy film, yet is gentle and doesn’t dry out the skin at all.
This product is pricey, but I believe in splurging for serums in the skincare routine, as they’re intensely-packed with antioxidants and are more targeted in their treatment. Drunk Elephant is praised for their high quality ingredients, and out of the four products I bought from their line, I’m most into this Night Serum. Two of my skincare concerns are hyperpigmentation and pores — and the 12% glycolic acid exfoliates and addresses sun damage and dryness, while the 1% salicylic acid dissolves blackheads and improves uneven discoloration.
