Luxurious Liquid Luminizers, Part I

Step out and dazzle 'em with a glowing and bright complexion. Welcome to the first installment of liquid luminizers. These are the "secret" products that makeup artists use to make celebs appear like they are glowing from the inside out.

Liquid luminizers last longer than traditional powders or cream shimmers and can be applied all over your face or just to your eyes, cheeks, lips and collarbone. Here are three bellisima products that will make you look like you are oozing with radiance!

Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer, $20, is a universal gold shimmer color than can be used on any complexion to brighten up your face.

It is lightweight, it won't clog your pores, and with its built in, nail polish-like brush, application is fool proof. You can either mix a few drops into your foundation, or apply it just to specific areas. Have fun!

Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion by Smashbox, $30, is an oil free lotion that you blend right into your fave foundation. It contains ginkgo biloba and Japanese green tea to help your skin stay healthy and glowing. It is currently available in four shades.

For two more luxurious luminizers,

M.A.C. Glimmershimmer Liquid Pearlizer, $16.50, is a pearlized luminizing lotion/brightener that can be used for highlighting/adding glow to your whole face. It's virtually mess-less with this easy to use pump and comes in five colors to complement your blush tone.

Pout Illuminator, $30, helps to enhance your natural inner glow. It comes in the cutest little lacy bottle and is now available in two shades; love glow, which is a pearly white shimmer, and after glow, which is a bronze color shimmer for darker skin tones or for the summer time.

there's one cream texture but YSL which is really good, best if u have the purple one mixed with the pink one to achieve the best radiant look, i tried them both together, and they work wonders plus they smell great.

I've been wanting to try the Stila and MAC luminizers for awhile now. Once I was talking to a rep at the Benefit counter in Macys' and she told me that her favorite trick is to mix High Beam with Benetint and use it on her cheekbones. It seriously was gorgeous!
