Five strobing essentials from W7 that will give you a translucent highlight
The elusive lit-from-within glow is the go-to summer highlight we all covet, but often get very wrong. Whether it be by underestimating the intensity of a powder highlighter or doing way too much with glitter makeup that promises a JLo glow but ends up making you look like a disco ball. A look that’s youthful, feminine and natural; there are justifiable reasons for wanting to nail it and the great news is that you don’t need to be sixteen, enlist the services of a professional makeup artist or chug 50 litres of water to get the perfectly dewy visage; there are easier ways.
A solid skincare routine where you don’t skimp on exfoliation and moisturising is always a good start, because inasmuch as you could fake the look to an extent - with the right foundation, liquid highlighter and strobing sticks, a degree of actual inner radiance does make it go a long way.
And to make it easier for you, we have narrowed it down to a few W7 illuminators that could change the game for you and take your glow to the next level.
While the placement of the highlight on your face is everything, the texture of the product determines the type of glow you’ll get, so finish your dewy look with off with W7’s Strobe & Go stick: the cream texture gives you a subtle shimmer that you can buff in with your fingers and allows you to look like you “woke up like this”. It comes in pink light and moonlight shades, so that you can match the shimmer to your outfit accordingly. If you’re doing your dewy look with more layers, try the W7 Beam Me Up liquid highlighter; the liquid formula sinks into the skin easier and won’t ruin your foundation when you lightly pat into your skin on application. And then the Casino cheek palette gives you highlighter, blush and bronzer shades to create a more flushed look. Optional extras that will have you updating your favourite lip and eye shades with an eighties inspired glam glow are the iridescent lip topper and the metal flash liner.
