The Face Gloss Trend : Yay or Nay?

It’s time to give your traditional highlighters a break and welcome Mr. Face Gloss to your life. Face gloss has been around for a while but now we see it all over the runways and it’s becoming a must have item in our makeup bag this fall. Face gloss is basically what it sounds like, a gloss for the face to give you the most natural, luminous and dewy highlight.

The reason we’re crazy about this trend

  • Highlighters are sooo last season
  • Since the formula is clear, it will look great on any skin color or skin type (thumbs up!) ­
  • If you’re crazy about dewy skin, this will be your bestie
  • Can be used over any makeup
  • Maintains the face natural moisture
  • You’ll make a glazed donut jealous

Now you ask… how do I use it ?

Like any traditional highlighter, you use this product on the high points of the face, for example, your cheekbones, cupid’s bow and the bridge of your nose to achieve that natural dewiness. Make sure to dab the product into the skin instead of blending it to avoid messing the makeup underneath.

Here you can see how the Swedish beauty blogger Linda Hallberg uses face gloss.




If you’d like to avoid breakouts, don’t use a clear lipgloss as a face gloss, even if the product looks the same, the formula is totally different. Face gloss is specifically designed to go on your face. But feel free to use your face gloss anywhere you like, get creative and have fun with it.
