It’s another of those, media enabled loves. Everyone is wearing them, everybody is talking about them, every company is bringing out their edit and you just can’t move for them…I’m talking highlighters. That little box of sparkly powder that makes your skin look so juicy and radiant.
Highlighter Do’s and Don’ts
Do – Dust highlighter over the tops of your cheek bones, on your brow bone, cupids bow and down the centre of your nose. Mix Subtle liquid highlighters in with your foundation for an all over healthy glow.
Do Not – Be too heavy handed. Draw a white sparkly stripe on your cheek bones.
Picking your highlighter couldn’t be more difficult. There are creams, liquids and powders, different colours, levels of sparkle/glow.
So I’ve whittled it down into liquid and powder and selected a few that I reach for the most. They have a nice texture to work with. They look pretty on the skin and give you lots of health glow.
Clinique Liquid Illuminator – Natural, this is nice and subtle and as it says on the tin gives health natural glow. Tanya Burr Cosmetics Liquid Highlighter – Beaming, A little bit more glow than the Clinique but not too much. Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops, this is full on glow if you’re scared of highlighter avoid but non the less its beautiful for us girls that love highlighter.
Estée Lauder Shimmering Blush Lights, a moderate amount of glow with various colours in the range. This is pinky giving a rosey glow that’s beautiful. Bobbie Brown Shimmer Brick A little more intense with noticeable glitter, nothing too chunky, it’s super pretty. Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection, theres no hiding from the glow here its quite full on but not in a tacky over the top way. Beautiful for nights out or when you want to look extra radiant. Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow. The glow is beautiful, not super natural but not disco ball, applying little or more can dial it up or down.
