Highlighters in my life.



I do like highlighting, or 'strobbing' as it is also referred to (extreme highlighting). Highlighting really took off shortly after contouring - which I am not a fan of, mostly because it scares me!
But to add a touch, dot or swipe of highlighter to the top of your cheekbone really does add something special to your face.  At its most subtle it wakes up your complexion, gives you a glow and with a bit more highlighter, it really boosts your face and makes your cheekbones stand out.

I'm like a magpie to shiny highlighters.  I love the sheen they give off, without the old style glittery particles, and I love how you can use highlighters on your eyes as well, especially at this time of year where any kind of artificial light is good!

Here's my current selection of highlighters:

The Balm Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter, £17.50 http://bit.ly/1O7WMFP

This is the Daddy of highlighters and so pigmented.  The tiniest amount of this powder is great for day wear, apply with your finger or for night time - apply with a small brush and BOOM!

Revolution Radiance Radiant Lights Palette, £8.00 http://www.makeuprevolutionstore.com/highlighter-palette-radiant-lights.html

Three subtle highlighting powders which can be used just on the top of your cheekbones or as an all over face powder. 

Mac Cream Colour Base in shade Hush, £16.00  http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/product/shaded/793/316/Products/Multi-Use/Cream-Colour-Base/index.tmpl

A little goes a long way with this multi tasking cream which I use as a highlighter and eye shadow base.

Kiko Radiant Touch Creamy Stick Highlighter in shade Rose, £8.50 http://www.kikocosmetics.com/en-gb/make-up/face/illuminating-powders/Radiant-Touch-Creamy-Stick-Highlighter/p-KM00106003

Subtle warm toned cream stick highlighter, good one for day wear.

Swatches from top to the bottom - Mary Lou Manizer, Mac Cream Colour Base, Kiko Highlighter stick.

Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighter, shade 003 Soho Glow £4.99 http://www.superdrug.com/Make-Up/Face/Face-Highlighter/Rimmel-London-Good-To-Glow-Highlighter-Soho-Glow-3/p/411505#.VnvpJPmLTIU

Lovely gold cream liquid.  Great for the summer when you have a bit of a tan.


Topshop All over Glow Liquid Illuminator.

Ok bit of a tease me putting this in as it's no longer on the Topshop website and I did get this one in their Summer sale!  But if you do ever see it, get it.  It's quite a runny cream but a its a true gold colour that gives a really sun kissed glow all over your body.

Let me me know what your favourite highlighter is, so I can give it a try.
