Let's not beat around the bush, now that Christmas is over, we can now start concentrating on our Spring/Summer make up? Too soon? Okay maybe, my selection box hasn't been finished quite yet. But whilst I'm munching on my 4 yards of Jaffa Cakes *yes Henry wins top boyfriend award* I am inside thinking of fresh spring skin. Of course one of the most important factors of spring skin, is the fresh dewy glow. Though you guys all know me, I like a bit of dew all year round.
I have three current top highlighters, and if you're anything like me, you're going to need them in your life? Bold claim maybe, but hey I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it. Let's start with the first powder highlighter, in fact this is one that I imagine most of you will already own. MAC's Mineralize skin finish in Soft and Gentle, is a cult hit with beauty enthusiasts alike, and well I can tell why. It's blooming gorgeous. I find that sometimes powder highlighters can be too glittery and dry looking, I swear I am not making that up. But this is just perfect, adds a subtle sheen, subtle enough for the day time. A pearly glow which I'm pretty sure would suit all skin tones. Also have you seen how big this product is? I'll be dusting this bad boy onto my cheeks still when I'm 80. Actually I won't as that might be a little unhygienic.
Next moving onto liquid highlighters, quite hard to work with at first, but once you get the hang of them, the pay off can be amazing. 17 Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter is something I have raved about on here, more than once, so I feel like I don't need to say too much as I don't want to sound like a broken record. So basically all I will say is, that for under £6 it is amazing. It knocks MAC Strobe cream and Nars Illuminators out of the park, and it's a fraction of the price. A new addition to my highlighter family, is Topshop's Glow Pot. I do love Topshop's make up and this glow pot in polished is not a let down either. A pearly glow, where a little goes a long way, it is amazing at creating the dewy, glowy look. Again coming in under the £10 mark. Who says you have to pay a fortune for the glowy look?
So that's my current favourite highlighters, what's yours?
