Dewy Sticks: Easy, Natural Luminosity

I’ve featured both of these dewy sticks before, but I wanted to do a quick post flagging them again, as they’re such a great, easy way to add a touch of light and dimension to skin.  Both the dewy sticks I have are very similar; they’re both chubby with rounded applicators (so ideal for splodging in place – you can literally draw the highlighter on, then blend out with your fingers) and both the shades I have are cool, white-toned silver with the lightest hint of shimmer.

I always favour powder highlighters as I find them easier to work with, but dewy sticks are particularly great if you like low-key makeup as they’re so flattering and natural.  The two I have are Ciate Dewy Stix and Kiko Dewy Stick.  The Ciate Dewy Stix is available in three shades (the one I have is Glow, but there’s a warmer Gleam and a pinker toned Lustre) and costs £22.  The Kiko Dewy Stick was part of the Tropic Heat collection which was limited edition, but there are a few still available on eBay.

Ciate Dewy Stix and Kiko Dewy Stick

These are really easy to work with and you use them by drawing on streaks of light and blending until you’re happy.  I find these are really good for highlighting the brow bone and cheek bone, but you can use them anywhere you like light – on particularly low maintenance days, you can use these as dewy eyeshadow to add a bit of life and light to the eyes.  The main reason I recommend these above other non-powder highlighters is that they really do add a dewiness; whilst the swatches look quite shimmery, the actual finish is just glowy and luminous, a finish that’s quite hard to achieve with other products.  You can find the Ciate Dewy Stix here – link.
