Melanie Mills Gleam Highlighting Powders


As summertime approaches everyone is on the search for that “glow”. A lot of makeup artists find it hard to tone it down during the colder months, but now that the warmer climate is upon us it is totally acceptable to pack on the highlight!

These fabulous powders are perfect for that luminescent, glowing skin. They are a finely milled loose powders that can be applied directly to the skin, applied with a liquid substance to intensify the pigment or mixed into your foundation. I love adding these radiant dusts to my tear duct or packed onto my lid for an amped up shimmer effect. They are the perfect mix of subtle but statement making.

If you are interested to see how these beauties apply, find swatches below.
