Highlight the TOWIE way..

Thursday, May 12, 2011

Hey Lovelies,

Hope you're all having a great Thursday so far, I've had a right lazy day as I've not been feeling too great so just been chilling! Now I've always been a bit wary of shimmer products and highlighting areas of the face as I have oily skin, I worry that it will make my face look even more shiny.

However you all know that I am a big fan of The Only Way Is Essex and earlier on in the series I noticed how amazing Billie Faiers' make up was. She had really lovely blusher and highlighted cheeks, being the little saddo that I am, I hopped onto her Twitter page and much to my delight she had revealed that she highlights her cheeks with Fake Bake's Shimmer brick. Now I do own the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick but I see that as more of a bronzer/blusher so I made sure I chose the light version of the Fake Bake version.

Billie- the right with her glowy cheeks!

I popped to Boots and luckily there was 1/3 of all Fake Bake products, now I do apologise for posting this a few weeks after buying this but I couldn't get the right picture so I'm not sure if it still on offer or not. The brick is really lovely and you get such a lovely shimmer from it and works really well everywhere.

I tend to use this on my cheeks after applying blusher and then on my brow bone. Unlike other products, I feel this doesn't accentuate shiny-ness but gives a gorgeous glow.

If it is still on offer, I would completely snap it up, as I can tell it's going to look gorgeous on holidays with a natural tanned face.

Hope you all have a lovely evening :)
