6 Ways to Add a Glowy Sheen to Your SkinJune 28, 2021
We love a good glow, but there’s a fine line between looking like a luminous glazed donut and crossing into glittery disco ball territory. To keep you firmly planted on the other side, we’ve gathered six products that add radiance, not sparkle, to your skin. Keep reading for our picks, from a plumping lip gloss to beaming highlighter drops.
For a full, juicy look, slick on this plumping lip gloss. The clear shade, Mirror, adds a light-reflecting sheen to your natural lip color or any lipstick you layer underneath.
For an all-over gloss, reach for this waterproof liquid in the shade Clear. You can dab it on the lids, cheekbones and lips to add radiance without a trace of glitter.
This powder is available in four colors, from a pale gold for fair skin to a peachy-bronze for deeper complexions. It’s easily buildable, so you can apply a small amount with a fluffy brush for a subtle sheen, or intensify your highlight by using more product on a firmer brush.
This pearly liquid mixes beautifully with foundation or tinted moisturizer, or it can be applied solo for a more concentrated effect. We love the way it shines on the body — especially on exposed shoulders and collarbones.
This cult-classic highlighting and concealing pen gives your skin a natural-looking, lit-from-within glow. Use it to perk up tired under-eyes, highlight the high points of your face and add coverage to imperfections.
This highlighter is the most shimmery of the bunch, but as long as you apply it sparingly, you can still use it to achieve a subtle glow. The dropper makes it easy to target just the areas you want to add sheen to.
