Top 10 Affordable Illuminators To Make You Glow



Spring is here and Summer is around the corner (screaming on the inside) during these two seasons it is all about having glowing skin with or without makeup. However, finding affordable illuminators can be a challenge because most have large particles of glitter which can make you look like a disco ball rather than a glowing goddess!

The purpose of an illuminating product rather it be powder, cream or liquid is to enhance (bring out) the feature you are applying it to on the face/body. It is the easiest way to achieve healthy, young looking skin in seconds.

When applying illuminators to the face it is important you apply them to the correct places so you do not enhance fine lines, pores, or patches of dry skin. This can cause you to look older NOT younger.

Just like buying foundations it is also important to pick the correct illuminator for your skin tone. An illuminator can be too dark, pink or orange just like a foundation. Try on the product to your inner and outer arm to see how it will look on the skin when you are different shades. Being a different shade can occur in the summer when you are tanned or in the winter when you are not tanned.
