Highlight looks are all the rage in the makeup world right now! The lit from within look is uber popular and flattering on all skins tones and face shapes. The key is to not look oily (hello my perpetually annoying t-zone), but glowy and fairie like. Today I’m sharing some of my favourite highlighters that last all day, without sliding off or looking powdery.
1: MAC Mineralize Skinfish- This highlighter goes on smooth, and has very very fine glitter that shimmers and shins without being glossy!
2: e.l.f. Cosmetics Facial Whip: I love any cosmetic with the word whip in it, it just sound so light and fluffy! This one has the perfect amount of shine to it, and the best part- it’s only $1!!!!
3: Stila All Over Shimmer- My everyday go to illuminator that is the perfect nude gold liquid that works whether your white as a ghost in the winter (sun come back!) or a deep bronze in the summer.
4: NARS The Multiple: Creamy, and easy to blend this multi-trick stick is great for cupid bows, cheekbones, and inner eyes! The glow is angelic.
5: Hourglass Ambient Lighting: I purchased this palette when it was released and have been very happy about it! The shades range from sheer to pigmented and pale gold to dusty pink. These highlighters cover it all!
6: NYX Born To Glow: Another fantastically priced product, NYX nails this glow giver- staying power and a tone that works for everyone!
There are major contouring videos and guides all over the beauty world right now showing insane ways to change one’s face shape using highlighters and bronzers. I’ll admit: I can’t do any of that! For me, I put a bit of highlighter on my cheekbones, and inner tear ducts to just lighten up my face and give that little glow like I just drank a million and one green juices.
