Transitional glow-getters

I don’t know about you but I’m so happy for autumn to be on its way. You’ll usually find me living in oversized knitwear, cosy scarves and chunky boots over autumn and winter, but it also means that my skin is about to get a whole lot duller thanks to the colder snaps. To combat this, I’ve found a few products that really do help cheat your way to a gorgeous summer-looking glow during the colder months.

Glowy skin starts with great skincare and the Sanctuary Spa Instant Illuminating Beauty Balm* is the perfect product to use for an instant skin pick-me-up. Superfruit kakadu plum extract instantly brightens the skin, along with ginseng and vitamin E to helps energise and nourish – leaving you with the perfect base for makeup. Just pop a little bit of this balm on your skin after moisturising and you’re good to glow!

You’ll probably know by now that I love a good highlighter. I’d always been a powder highlighter kinda gal as I found them much easier to apply and maintain, but the KIKO Radiant Touch Creamy Stick Highlighter has totally changed my mind as it’s a doddle to blend and looks so pretty on the skin. A quick swipe of this golden creamy highlighter is all you need to instantly add a gorgeous glow and what’s even better is that it stays in place all day long.

Last but not least, I had to include the powder highlighter that’s seen a hell of a lot of love since I (finally) got my hands on it a few months back. MAC Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish is a cult product that I believe is totally worth the hype as it’s so beautiful on the skin and a little really does go a long way. I used this highlighter religiously over the summer months but it’s one that I’m sure will be a staple all year round too.

I’d love to know… what are your glow-getting favourites?
