Illuminating Cream Highlighters

Summer Glow With Beautycounter

One of my favorite tricks to a Summer glow is using my Beautycounter Illuminating Cream Highlighters.  They come in three smooth, build-able and easy to apply shades that you can mix and match based on your needs.  It won’t weigh down your skin in the heat and will highlight the best features of your face.  You can use them to contour, add a bit of bronze, as a cream eyeshadow or even on your lips!  The best part: they’re made without approximately 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals that Beautycounter includes on their Never List, which is a list of ingredients they’ll never use in their products.

Just a heads up, the set of Illuminating Cream Highlighters you see above and in my video is from our Holiday 2017 collection.  This was when we first release them as a limited edition gift set.  Now they are available full-time online and sold individually, so the packaging has been updated.  They’re in classic Beautycounter navy and gold sleek containers which reflect the modern, clean aesthetic of the brand.

There are three shades: Bronze Glow, Rose Glow, and Pearl Glow.  They can be used together for a lovely sun-kissed glow or individually as needed.  They’re formulated with jojoba esters, so these highlighters are incredibly soft and moisturizing.  I like to apply them two different ways: with my fingertips or by directly swiping them onto my face.  It makes for an effortless dewy look!  Here is a quick run-down on where to apply each of these highlighters:

  • Bronze Glow: Apply to the underside of cheekbones for a more defined, contoured look or to the high points of cheekbones for a sun-kissed warmth.
  • Rose Glow: Gently blend onto the apple of your cheeks.
  • Pearl Glow: Illuminate the high points of your cheekbones, brow bones, nose, cupid’s bow (upper lip) and décolleté.
