    ive tried moon beam and i love it. it gives me a glow-y look and even if i hadnt had any sleep this stuff makes me look awake. :wink: i havent tried the others though but i think it all depends on what skin tone you have. it works for tan skin like mine but for my friend who is pale it looked different but i dont know i guess its really whatever look you like :P

    MAC Doesn't make a product called High Beam. They make a glowy moisturizer called Strobe Cream, though.

    Personally, my faaaaaavorite highlighter is Prescriptives Sheen Cream in Beam. It's gaw-geous! link to prescriptives sheen cream

    I like Benefit's High Beam (more pink-y). It gives a nice glow to my pale skin. I use it on my browbones and sometimes on my cheek bones.

    You know how celebrities on premiers always have this sort of glowy skin?

    What products d'you think can achieve this? My skin is beginning to improve with some meds my derm perscribed, so instead of focusing on my acne and stuff like I used to before, I want to return that healthy glow/moisture back!

    I remember ages ago when I went to a derm and had some weird dermabrassion like thing or something, she applied this stuff to my face (WHY didn't I find out what it was?!?) that made my skin literally WOW glow..even though it was all red-ish it looked so healthy.. :o

    Yeah...so I was wondering if you guys have any secret products to rave about. :innocent: :flower:

    I would help, give some advice or even name various products that work, but I have no idea how to achieve "glowing, healthy skin". I wish I knew.I would think there's some good face wash, or a mask and then lotion to use....but, I don't know.
    Hopefully someone will, cause I'd like to know as well.

    what i do to *try* to get that healthy glow is i take revlon skin lights, the liquid stuff, and i mix a little bit of irridescent white loose eyeshadow powder with it and put it in a boomerang (nice description, huh?) shape around my eyes-- cheekbone, temple- er, right below it, right above my eyebrows.

    avoid matte finishes and go more for dewey, jsut not greasy

    Maybe try some highlighters? eg. Dior skinflash, YSL touche eclat, MAC strobe cream, Becca shimmering skin perfector...?

    It's probably not skincare alone :wink:

    Eep, the pic didn't work.

    Anyway, I'm sure that make up is part of it - but my skin tends to be dry-ish, so it is rather hard to make it actually "glow" :cry: even with really dewy make-up..

    Revlon skinlights works for me... with MAC bronzer on my cheekbones... and just drink sh*t loads of water, i actually noticed the difference when i started to drink more water - make up on or off...!

    you get that glow mixing your foundation with a liquid highlighter... Like Lancome`s Fluide Illuminateur, or the Body Shop`s Glow Enhancer. Also add an extra finishing touch to cheeks, bridge of nose and above the eyebrow, areas that naturaly shine if your skin is dewy... :flower:
