Can I be totally honest with you guys? For me, the pregnancy glow is totally a joke. Instead of radiant skin, my pregnancy face has become dull and acne-prone and pretty much the opposite of glowing. At first, I majorly freaked out, because I’m a wimp when it comes to skin and have literally never had acne. I had no idea what to do, and really struggled to figure out how to wear face makeup and still look natural.
I’m happy to say, in addition to a bit of my acne going away (thank God), I’ve discovered a simple secret to faking glowing, radiant skin that we all want, pregnant or not. Let me introduce you to the Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick. The creamy, pearl-infused formula creates an illuminated effect, making it easy to selectively highlight features or add a healthy glow to bare skin (or just-covered-up-with-foundation-out-of-necessity-skin). It’s like radiance in a stick, and I’m seriously addicted.
If you’ve never used highlighter before, welcome to the club—this was my first experience, too! Lucky for all of us, it’s super quick and easy to apply, and the strategy is foolproof, thanks to a nifty guide from a post about highlighting on the Sonia Kashuk blog, which says, “The secret to highlighting is exaggerating the sharpest areas of the face, making their shape more prominent.”
Don’t have a brush? You can totally use your fingers to blend it in.

P.S. The color I use is Sparkling Sands, but the Persian Sunset color offers a peachy tone that’s perfect for highlighting cheekbones.
