I have been meaning to do a post like this for some time and i kept on forgetting.......so, today i decided i am going to sit down and write this post! I know this may seem like a lot of highlighters but i wanted to show you that there are many varieties of highlighters with different formulas, so there is something for everyone!
I love using highlighters because it adds a dimension to the face and can also emphasize your features. I normally use it on the tops of my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. Also a highlighter will just add a healthy glow to the skin. Here are the some of the highlighters in my collection...........
Illamasqua Cream Blush Lies RRP £18. Read my FULL review HERE. This is a soft frosty, pink highlighter in a cream formula. It has a creamy texture and it very easy to blend. I normally use this on my cheekbones.
MAC Cream Color Base Pearl RRP £14.50. This has been my go to product for over a year and i took it travelling with me as well. I normally use this under my brows because it opens up my eye area much more. This is a multi-purpose product, so it can be used as eyeshadow as a wash of colour or on your cheekbones.
KIKO Exotic Highlighter Peach RRP £7.90. Read my FULL review HERE. I am currently obsessed with this highlighter. It has a mousse like texture and dries very quickly on the skin. It gives the skin the most gorgeous peachy sheen.
Benefit Sun Beam RRP £18.50. Read my FULL review HERE. I have been loving this highlighter and it's one of my favourite liquid highlighters. It is much warmer in colour and looks beautiful on tanned/olive skin.
NARS Multiple Palm Beach RRP £29. Read my FULL review HERE. This is a bronze highlighter and it is something i would wear if i have a tan or i am on holiday. The multiples are so handy because you can use them on the face, eyes, lips and cheeks.
Dior Amber Diamond RRP £29. This highlighter is divine! The shimmer is very fine and i like to apply this product with my fingers for a subtle highlight. It gives a delicate sheen to the skin without it looking OTT.
NARS Albatross RRP £21. This came in my blush/bronzer trio and i had never thought about trying Albatross. This highlighter gives a golden sheen to the skin and looks as though it has been illuminated! Doesn't look sparkly unlike some highlighters.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Nectar RRP £32. I have all the shimmer bricks from Bobbi Brown and i find myself always reaching for Nectar. This is stunning on darker skin tones because apricots/corals just enhance the skin. Sometimes i use this as a subtle blusher and other times as a highlighter. It is pricier compared to other brands but this will last you a very long time!
MAC Pigment Vanilla RRP £16.50. Read my FULL review HERE. A pigment that has multiple uses! A loose powder highlighter that can look peach, gold and yellow depending on the light. MAC pigments are very versatile and can be used on the face, eyes, cheeks etc.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle RRP £21.50 - I purchased this recently and so far i am loving it! When using this, the skin appears radiant. I wouldn't suggest using this all over the face as it is not designed for that. I would recommend focusing on certain parts of your face i.e. cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupids bow.
MAC Strobe Cream/Lotion RRP £22.50. Read my FULL review HERE and HERE. I love both of these! They are exactly the same product and do the same thing but the lotion is a lighter version. I use this either over my moisturizer or mixed in with my foundation. It gives a gorgeous glow to the skin and makes the skin appear iridescent.
