Tom Ford’s Soleil Collection is now available and today I have photos and swatches to share of one stunning and irresistible piece from the collection: The Tom Ford Reflects Gilt Sheer Highlighting Duo. I am truly in anticipation of the arrival of Spring. I yearn for warmer weather, the beautiful blooms that will abound and the longer daylight hours. Though summer is usually synonymous with  “getting your glow on“, I think it’s safe to say that using a highlighter year round has become the norm for makeup lovers— every season, and all year round.

I recently took a couple of the Click sticks with me on a recent trip, and they proved to be a wonderful makeup companion.

I have been on a highlighting and bronzer kick lately. While I certainly don’t need to collect any more bronzers or highlighters, I simply cannot resist the temptation of luxuriously beautiful, one- of a- kind collections and this is precisely what I experienced from the moment I opened the newest additions to my collection, Givenchy’s Healthy Glow Highlighter and Healthy Glow Bronzer in Douce Saison.

Another month has quickly come and gone. March is always an exciting month as new Spring and Summer releases start to make their way to stores— I’m looking at you Tom Ford— and the warmer weather certainly reflects the type of colors I begin to choose from my makeup stash.

Achieving the perfect glow is still very much on trend in 2016 as much as it was in 2015. One exciting new release from Anastasia Beverly Hills is her new line of Glow Kits.  These two highlighting palettes come in two variations. That Gleam is aimed for consumers with more cooler skin tones while ‘That Glow’ is more suitable for warmer skin tones. Each palette contains four sizable highlighters that can be used in a myriad number of ways to achieve the ‘perfect glow.’
