HOW TO MAINTAIN A SUMMER GLOW

If like me you’re sad to say goodbye to summer and not you’re ready to leave the glow behind, I’ve got your back. Well, Iconic London have got your back.

Fresh summer makeup is for sure one of my favourite things. Some days I’d simply wear highlighter and mascara and leave it at that. Of all the base products I’d have to say that highlighting is my favourite part and is one of the steps I could never miss out.

Liquid highlighter drops used to terrify me, I have to admit. The beauty gurus of YouTube and Instagram made them look so easy and effortless to use and I never thought I’d get the same finish. But, I was so wrong.

Iconic London’s Limited Edition Illuminator Drops* have been my saviour this summer and will sure be staying right by my side throughout the colder months to.

On a regular basis throughout the summer, I’d just pop these drops on top of a primer across the high points of my face and that would be my face makeup done. My favourite places to use these are my cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow. I sometimes use them on my collarbones if I’m going full glam because quite frankly, why the heck not!

Full glam or minimal, highlighter always makes an appearance.

Whether you’re using the drops with minimal makeup or not, you only need just a few drops to get that highly pigmented popping glow. A little really goes a long way with these. It would be easy to get carried away but you could turn into a beaming sunshine (not that I’d complain).

Not only can you use this on its own to get a super highlighted glow, you can use this in your foundation, primer and moisturiser. I love the glowiest of all glows so I tend to use this by itself. My favourite way to apply it is straight from the pipet applicator to the high points on my face. Then, I blend the product in a little with my fingertip before blending in smoothly with my Beautyblender.

The pipet applicator is actually one of the things about the product that I love. It makes application so quick and easy, and it also helps control the amount you apply. It feels a bit scary at first putting it up to your face but when you’ve done it once, its so simple and really makes highlighting a breeze.

I’m so glad this little gem has made its way into my life so I don’t have to wave goodbye to the summer glow too soon, if ever.

Iconic London have 3 shades of the illuminator, mine is in original, which is a champagne toned golden shine. The other two shades are for either lighter or deep skin tones. You can shop the range here.

What is your favourite illuminator for a glow?
