Best Highlighter for Over 40 Skin

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand
My holy grail highlighter!

I am so excited that I found my holy grail highlighter!!!  If you are over 40 like me, then you might like a highlighter like this that doesn’t make you look like you are going to a club, but gives a subtle healthy glow to your face.  Easy to apply and wearable every day is another prerequisite I have when looking for a highlighter.  Also, a product that does not accentuate texture or wrinkles is a big PLUS.  Well, I’ve found the product that does all of this!  Let me introduce you to Charlotte Tilbury’s Beauty Light Wand.  I purchased this product about a month ago and have been using it nonstop ever since!

It retails for $38 and comes in a tube with a sponge applicator.  This makes it so easy to apply and its packaging allows for easy travel too.  Just swipe on in the areas you want to highlight and either blend with your fingers or a beauty sponge.  There is only one shade and I would describe it as a beautiful pearly champagne which is a great universal shade.  A little goes a very long way and what I think is so unique about this is the way it looks.  It isn’t glittery or chunky but gives the skin an almost wet look, like a natural glow (not greasy).  And it’s noticeable but not “in your face” glowing.  Since this is a cream product, you should apply to your face before setting with powder for the best result.

There is a contour wand by Charlotte Tilbury that was released with the highlight, but I don’t really like it as much.  I like the ease of application and blendability, but I don’t think it really shows up on my face at all and it doesn’t have the same WOW factor that the highlight has.

So, if you are in the market for a new highlighter, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.  I am really enjoying this product and plan to buy more as it’s really hard to find highlighters that are suitable for more mature skin.
