Makeup Review: Face Luminizer

Okay, so I've been lacking in the makeup posts lately.  Let me tell you, much has changed!  Before my new discovery I would put on a good amount of blush just to make my pale face look alive.  Little did I know the wonderful creation of face luminizer gel.  Have no idea what that is?  It's this lightweight gel that makes your face dewy and fresh with ease.  While it can be life changing (it certainly has for me), you have to be sure you put it on properly.  And that's where I come in :)

I have tried a few different brands (NARS, Smashbox) and I have determined that Make Up For Ever has the best kind of luminizer.  It has a great shine and lasts all day without fail.  It's a little pricey at 29 dollars, but the key is to use a little at a time.  I've had mine for a few months and it's barely halfway done.  

My normal routine is to take a pearl sized amount of tinted moisturizer (I use Laura Mercier) and add not even one full pump of luminizer and mix it together on the side of my hand.  I then use my fingertips to rub it in all over my face and neck.  This alone will give you a great glow.  To make your cheeks stand out, just take one pump of the luminizer and rub it into both cheeks.  Less is more, so I never use more than one pump for my cheeks as well.  Too much can make you look unnatural and sparkly!  You can then add a touch of blush if you need it.

So there you have it!  Luminizer gel has made my face look alive without adding minutes to my morning routine. 

What's the one makeup item you can't live without?




  1. Loving this! You're glowing, makes me want this now!

  2. This sounds wonderful! I'm a very basic make up girl and need to step it up!

    Have you ever done a post on blush? Or would you?! Whenever my friends put blush on me, I look stunning, but I have no idea where to start or how to apply. Share your tops!

    1. Just for you Jessica, I'll work on one today! It's super easy to apply, I swear!

  3. You look wonderful, I definitely want to try this luminizer out!

    1. Thank you so much! You can always get a sample size so it's not as much of a commitment if you don't like it.


I read and appreciate every single comment!
