3 Highlighters Under $25 to Achieve that JLO Glow

March 11, 2017

 

                                                     

We all know that Jlo is the Queen of Glow. She always lights up the red carpet with that perfect, dewy gleam. At the last People’s Choice Awards she rocked a flawless highlight from Gorgio Armani that costs a whopping $110.  Not all of us can shell out for an expensive shimmer. Nor do you need to break the bank to achieve an epic effect. We’ve rounded up three of our top-selling luminizers at Sleekhair.com that will give you a gorgeous 24/7 halo for less than $25

 

TOP MONEY-SAVING HIGHLIGHTERS

 

#1) theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter $24:

 

This shimmery honey-hue gives a really soft, dewy glow especially if you prefer a more subtle natural

look. A little goes a long way. Heavily pigmented, you could really brighten a room if you wanted to. The creamy texture glides on smooth and lends an angelic radiance that lasts all day. Easily doubles as an eye shadow and brow highlighter.

 

 

#2) BH Cosmetics Wild & Radiant Baked Illumination Palette $12.50:

 

Marble-like swirls of shimmering tones, this palette is loaded with high-impact bronzing and illuminating powders ranging from pearlescent white opals down to deep copper golds.  One stroke is enough to give you an eye-poppin’ galactic beam -- SERIOUSLY.

 

 

 

#3) L.A. Girl Strobe Lite Strobing Powder $9:

 

The most budget friendly of the batch, these silky smooth shimmers have been sported by mega Youtube sensation @Nikkitutorials and countless other makeup gurus.  With 12 glorious shades creatively described as “WATTS” to choose from, you can gradually amp up the depth and dimension of your facial features to any level strong enough to be seen from outer space.

 

 

 

TIPS FOR FAKING THAT PERFECT GLOW

 

FIND THE RIGHT SHADE FOR YOUR SKIN TONE. Light, pale skin tones look best in pearl pigments while medium, warm tones play off well with champagne and deep golden hues. If you’re naturally tan or olive, a pearlescent white may make you look a bit frosty so go for the peachy gold highlighters to promote a natural radiance. Bronze tones enhance the warmth of golden skin and darker complexions shine best with deeper yellows and golds. 

 

                                                 Product Used: the Balm Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter

 

 

APPLY WITH THE PERFECT BRUSH. The Morphe Gun Metal Fan Brush ($9 value) is the best tool for dusting shimmer. Small enough for the bridge of the nose and yet with just enough fullness to gently sweep the rest of your face.

ACCENT SPOTS WHERE THE SUN NATURALLY HITS. The high points of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, arch of your brow, inner corner of your eyes, the cupids bow right above the lips and don’t forget to add a pop on your collarbones.  You will look sun-kissed, even if it’s snowing outside!

CONTOUR, HIGHLIGHT, REPEAT. Contouring adds definition to your face using product that is 2-3 shades darker than your skin tone to the hollows of your cheekbones, edges of temples and forehead and sides of your nose. Highlighting accentuates features you love most, giving you a bright lifted look. Top it off with a sweep of blush for that natural flush.
