Dolphin skin: Skin dives beyond "dewy" and straight into wet.
Dolphin skin is how you’d imagine your face looking after rising out of the water. Unlike the aptly named glass skin, which is all about acheiving a smooth, poreless, luminous complexion via an elaborate skin-care routine, dolphin skin is the effect of highlighter....and more highlighter....and even more highlighter. It looks shiny and vaguely slippery.
Although it can look cool in photos, this look does not translate particularly well to real-life. Still, if you'd like to try it, we'd recommend using a high quality highlighter that can elevate your look when you're not trying to look like you walked out of the sea. We love Rituel de Fille's Rare Light Luminizer. It's sheer and radiant and shifts in color from every angle. Simply put, we think it's magical and we're betting you will too.
