liquid illuminator

hiybbprqag  asked:

Do you know any lowbudget liquid highlighter that goes well to mix with foundation (not putting it on top of foundation, but mix it with foundation before putting it on your face). Not too shimmery, but still give you that fresh dewy look

Ooh yes, I have a couple of products that I love for this very purpose!  Dewy skin is IN and I always need a cheat product!

L’Oreal Magic Lumi Face Primer - $11

This products doubles as a primer, or a highlight.  The texture creates a smooth, illuminated look without making you look or feel oily  :::Get it here:::

Revlon Photoready SkinLights - $10

This ultra-lightweight highlight blends flawlessly into skin without enhancing texture.  Comes in several skin-toned shades.   :::Get it here:::

ELF Shimmering Facial Whip - $1

How to create Dewy Skin

Gone are the days of heavily matte skin instead gorgeous, glowy skin is the ultimate focus and thanks to this trend (which is definitely here to stay) there are hundreds of products on the market that can give you gorgeous Victoria Secret skin in a heartbeat. Those with oily skin, don’t have to fret just yet, trust me, you can still rock the luminous look.

The Skincare: If your skin is super lackluster try a whole skincare line dedicated to giving you a healthy glow, otherwise a serum, which is designed to brighten your skin will suffice.

The Prep: Don’t use a moisturiser, instead just use a small amount of facial serum to prep your skin. Not only will makeup last longer, but your skin will also look fresher. Follow with an illuminating primer that will reflect light to set the perfect base for your makeup.

DIY: BB Cream & CC Cream

Have you run out of BB cream or CC cream?
Here are a few easy steps for you to create your own.

BB Cream
You need
- Liquid foundation (that gives a good coverage).
- Face moisturizer (of your choice)
- Liquid Illuminator
-Empty jar (optional)

Add a small amount of your liquid foundation and face moisturizer. Also Add 1 to 2 drops of your liquid illuminator. Now mix everything together on the back of your palm or in an empty jar. 

CC Cream
You apply the same steps of BB cream with the CC cream. But you also add 1 to 2 drops of water and a little bit of shimmer.

We recommend for you to test the mixture on your neck before you apply it on your face. 

Products Worth Checking Out!

  • Juvia’s Place Eyeshadow Palettes - Currently I own these Nubian 1 palette and it is amazing. Shadows are easy to blend and very pigmented. Also this is black owned brand.
  • NYX Glitter Glue - Since I’ve purchased this I don’t reach for my toofaced glitter glue anymore or any other eyeshadow primer. My shadows stay on all day. Especially the shimmer/glitter ones. You can use this for regular matte shades but just set it with a powder close to your skintone or translucent powder, since it tends to be a little sticky.
  • L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Illuminator - I love mixing these with my foundation to give me a nice glow. This weather has my skin looking dull and this mixed in with my foundation brings some life back to my face.
  • Makeup Geek Eyeshadows - Super affordable and pigmented. Customize your own palette. Her foiled shadows are my favorite.
  • Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara - I use this to set my brows. Very affordable and can be found in most drugstores. My brows stay in place all day.
