Who doesn’t love the finish of a stunning highlighter? Even the slightest glow on your cheekbone can add a radiance that no amount of sleep can compete with. Today I’m bringing to you the highlighting products I reach for the most. These shimmery shades are my favourites from my collection.
#1 SLEEK COSMETICS “ROYAL GOLD”
This palette just blew me away when I first opened it. Besides the stunning packaging, the highlighters inside are so, so pigmented. I definitely was not expecting it. The one I use the most is “Royal Gold”, a peachy gold cream highlighter sitting in the top right of the palette. It creates the most amazing shine and is such a perfect summer colour. And the fact that it is packaged up with 3 other beautiful highlighters to switch up throughout the year makes it even better.
#2 MAC COSMETICS MINERALISE SKIN FINISH “LIGHTSCAPADE”
Words cannot describe the beauty of this highlight. The fine powder blends to leave such a pretty glow and reflects just the right amount of light without too much shimmer. I sometimes use a big brush and give a light dusting across large areas as it’s such a beautiful colour.
#3 THE BALM MARY-LOU MANIZER
My favourite highlighter at the moment is the Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm. This highlight has just upped my highlight game altogether and I don’t know how I used to get by without it. It’s a shimmery champagne with a hint of gold to it. This product brings so much light to the face without adding chunky glitter and the colour is perfect for my skin tone. It’s a tad on the yellow side, but I would still class this as a champagne shade. It’s definitely one you want to use a small brush with to focus it on specific areas rather than dusting it anywhere and everywhere. I have a feeling I will be hitting pan on this before any of my other highlighters.
