Get Glowing Skin With These Skin Brighteners

January isn't normally a good month for our skin. Too much alcohol, one too many late nights and lots of chocolate has caused our skin to throw a tantrum. New year celebrations have resulted in a dull complexion, tired eyes and sudden breakouts. Time to ready,set,glow with these skin illuminaters to suit all budgets.

No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter £9.95
A newbie from the No7 make up range. This stick highlighter is the first of it's kind and I think it's going to do really well. Extremely easy to use, simply swipe on and blend with finger tips for a subtle glow. The formula isn't greasy or sticky and is perfect for touch-ups on the go.
Revlon Photoready Skinlights 200 Pink Light
This can be applied over moisturiser or mixed in with foundation for some dewy goodness. It contains a subtle shimmer so you can rest assure skin won't look shiny or glittery. I find this works best on cheekbones and below the brow to add natural radiance.
L'oreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer
A pearly white primer which helps make up look fresh and healthy all day long. You can use this in the same way you would with the Revlon Skinlights. The shimmer is this is very fine so it never looks Edward Cullen-esque. Some days I use this alone without foundation for a supercharged glow.
Benefit Sunbeam Highlighter
Benefit know their stuff when it comes to highlighters. I'm a fan of HighBeam but I love using SunBeam when I want a bit of colour. The bronzed liquid looks natural add a lovely boost to skin. Focus it on browbones, cheekbones and cupids bow to illuminate features.
JN Beauty Sheer Glow Lotion in Paradise £14.00
Housed in a glass bottle with pump applicator, this liquid highlighter is going to last you ages! Mix this in with foundation for a radiance boost or I prefer to use this as a body highlighter. I apply this to my legs for a subtle sheen before a night out or add a pump of this in with your body moisturiser for a healthy glow.

What do you go to for a glow?
