Favourite Highlighters

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a great weekend! Contouring and highlighting have become a huge craze and I have seriously been upping my highlight game over the past few months. I have a few favourite products that I wanna share with you all today that are perfect for making you look gorgeous and glowy.

First up is a total cult classic, Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle. This is a really gorgeous cool toned highlight that’s ideal if you’re into a super dewy look. I like to dust this on with a fan brush when I’m going for something that’s not too in your face. This guy also looks great on the body if you want to add some extra glow to a tan. (Who doesn’t want that?) It’s definitely pricey at $37 but highlighters are the kind of product that you can easily buy one and have it last you forever. Find it here:

Next up is Benefit’s Highbeam which I have already briefly mentioned in my review on Benefit’s Christmas collection. This is a liquid highlight that again will give you that very cool toned pinky glow. I think this is an awesome product for summer as many people don’t wear as much makeup and like to opt for more cream and liquid products. This gives you a really beautiful and natural looking ‘glow from within’ but doesn’t getting bunchy like many liquid products do. Make sure not to put this on top of powder though because it won’t blend out and will get kind of patchy. I tend to prefer powder products in general–for blushes, eyeshadows, everything–just because I find them easier to use but if this formula is your thing then definitely give this one a shot because it’s a beautiful colour.

Highlighters are slowly starting to make their way into drugstores which is awesome, but I haven’t been totally wowed by any yet. However, Loreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige is absolutely gorgeous. For those of you that haven’t tried these, they are a hybrid between a loose pigment and a pressed shadow, making them super pigmented and smooth. This is a beautiful champagne colour that is super shimmery without being glittery, which makes it amazing to use on the inner corners of the eyes, brow bone, cheeks and of course for it’s intended purpose, the eyes. This is best applied with your fingers though because of it’s unique texture. Check out all of the Infallible shades here:

I hope this has helped any of you who are looking to add a new highlight to your collection. Feel free to let me know what your favourites are! Thanks so much for stopping by!
