I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you can never have too much highlight. You might already have powder and cream products in your growing collection but there’s another one you can add. More and more beauty brands are releasing illuminating sprays. These are basically makeup prep and setting sprays that are infused with light-reflecting particles. What this does is add an overall glow to your entire face. A dewy look that’s both natural and refreshing. If you can’t get enough of the highlight life, check out the picks below. Tip: You can even spray these on your body.
