The Illuminators


The Illuminated Look

I love healthy radiant skin. It's just so natural, fresh and really pretty. For a glowing complexion, I eat as organically as possible, drink a tonne of water and get lots of sleep. And for gorgeous 'lit-from-within' skin, I start with an illuminating primer, lightly dust some bronzer across the cheeks and temples of the forehead, then add a touch of highlighter to the cheekbones. A great light-reflecting primer minimises pores and fine lines, and a great highlighter creates fantastic bone structure.  A little goes a long way, and here are my favourite products to achieve the perfect glow.

The Best of the Best Illuminating Primers
  1. Dior Glow Maximiser Primer ~ Such a beautiful primer that truly brightens all skin tones.
  2. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat ~ A cult classic and perfect for under the eye area. Love.
  3. Revlon Photoready Illuminator ~ A gorgeous base that gives your foundation a dewy finish. 
  4. L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer ~ Gives dull skin a shot of radiance and looks amazing.
  5. Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer ~ Instantly brightens the skin.
  6. Laura Mercier Foundation Radiance Primer ~ Gives a beautiful illuminated soft focus effect.

The Best Highlighters
  1. Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer ~ A gorgeous sheer pale pink tint that gives an angelic glow. Love this. You will have this forever.
  2. Nars Highlighter Blush (Albatross) ~ A true favourite that adds a soft sheen to the cheeks.
  3. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks ~ Totally amazing, highlighting the cheekbones beautifully. One is never enough. You need Bronze and Pink Quartz.
  4. The Balm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer ~ A beautiful honey golden powder and the packaging is adorable. This is so dreamy!
  5. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle ~ I love this. You need this. A shimmery peachy bronze that looks stunning over the cheekbones. Adorable. Love.
  6. Stila Kitten All Over Shimmer Duo ~ Two stunning shades that highlight and contour the cheeks. Gorgeous.
