The Best Highlighter & My Favorite Makeup Look for Spring

makeup pink lipstick cheek highlight and blonde braided hair

I pretty much live for a good highlighter / makeup with a dewy glow. I have tried dozens of highlighters over the past few years but I only recently found by far the best highlighter ever. I got this highlighter the day before my birthday brunch two weeks ago and used it for the first time for my birthday look. I received so many messages responding to my instagram stories that day, from people asking me about my makeup and what products I used to create the look. I knew then that I had to do a full makeup video for you on what is now my new favorite makeup look for spring!

Be sure to watch the full video for reviews (and some tips) on the products I used to create this glowy, spring makeup look. This really is the best highlighter I have ever seen! I can’t believe how pigmented and gorgeous the highlight actually is. Stay tuned to the very end of the video because I also share the “next-best-thing” to the highlighter I’m using, since I know it may be too expensive for what some people want to spend on makeup.

The links to all of the products I used in my spring makeup look are in the caption of the YouTube video, or you can shop them all below. If you have any questions, definitely let me know! You can leave a comment on this post or over on YouTube. And please subscribe to my YouTube channel! I only post videos once a month or so, so you won’t be inundated by annoying notifications if you subscribe. Plus, since I don’t post that often, it’ll help make sure you do get to see new videos as they come out!
