NYX High Glass Collection

Glass skin, defined: Evolving from K-Beauty’s dedication to a healthy, glowy, hydrated-looking complexion, “glass skin” refers to skin that looks translucent, smooth and reflective—just like a pane of glass.

High Glass Face Primer – creates a perfect base for an all-day luminous look, the formula is infused with light-reflecting pearls to create the illusion of translucent glass skin. Silky to the touch, it glides on smoothly, creating a fresh and healthy look that can be worn alone or under foundation for glowy, prolonged wear. Available in three flattering shades for a wide range of skin tones.

High Glass Finishing Powder – blurs imperfections and keeps skin glassy all-day long, this versatile formula was designed to be worn over High Glass Face Primer or the foundation of choice. Available in three light-reflecting shades which stretch across light to deep skin tones (light, medium, and deep), each shimmering setting powder sets your makeup and gives the complexion a sleek and polished glass-like glow.

High Glass Illuminating Powder – spotlights the features in a gorgeous, glass-like glow, this pressed-gel highlighting powder is packed with luminous micropearls that catch, reflect, and refract the natural light for a multidimensional, mirror-like sheen (formula similar to Colourpop’s Super Shock Cheek). Specifically designed to go with the Korean glass skincare regimen, this highlighter comes in three inclusive shades (light, medium and deep) to highlight and complement a range of skin tones.

The collection also comes with a primer brush & radiant setting spray.

Angelic MAC

I’ve been really enjoying the formula and the compact design of these MAC highlighter palettes. They come in 4 shade varieties (2 of them are shown, but I own 3 for my kit).

Shown:
Flash + Awe (pink tones)
Get It Glowin’ (gold tones)

Own but not shown:
Shimmy Peach (deep peach tones)

Other variety:
Get Lit (pale pastels tones)

I enjoy using this creamy lightweight formula with these brushes:
159 Synthetic Duo Fibre Blush Brush (shown in the photo)
184 Synthetic Duo Fibre Fan Brush

And a little Fix + is always a good idea to refresh the skin makeup and intensify eyeshadows or highlighters!

Glow-Getter

Highlighter is my second favourite makeup product – they make you glow (from within or like a disco ball) and they make you feel radiating with confidence. Throughout many years of testing various formulas and undertones, I can recommend some of the best ones, in my opinion, from all price points.
