(Holllla if you get that reference!...but if you don't, DISHONOUR ON YOUR COW)
Anyways, I figured everyone was getting sick of my blush posts (don't even deny it), so today I've decided to move a few centimeters up the face...to talk about highlighters...L O L.
I JUST WANT LUMINOUS DEWY GORGEOUS SKIN OK.
Anyways, here's the stash that I now use for a non-vampirish glow!
Starting with Wet n Wild's 'Reserve Your Cabana', this is the cheapest, softest, largest, subtle powder beige/champagne highlight you'll find at the drugstore. I usually deposit this along the cheekbones + top of cheeks (I LIKE GLOWY CHEEKS OK) and take it into the areas beside the nose to brighten my whole face up with a very very subtle glow that's perfect for daily use.
The Balm's champagne highlighter, 'Mary-Lou Manizer'*, should be a staple in everyone's makeup stash, seriously. Tried and true, this highlighter is SO DARN SOFT AND PIGMENTED AND PERFECT DON'T QUESTION IT.
Practically everyone got Benefit's 'Watt's Up' as Sephora's birthday gift last year, but you know what? This cream highlighter is actually amazing. This golden highlighter paired with a pink coral blush is perfection, though there is the tiniest hint of shimmer to this.
There's a certain 'dewiness' that can only be achieved with a liquid highlight, and I love Benefit's 'Moon Beam' because it's a beautiful iridescent pink apricot highlighter. I find High Beam too stark for me (they say to wear High Beam for night parties BUT DO I LOOK LIKE I GO TO NIGHT PARTIES?), but Moon Beam is perfect for daily wear and mesmerizing on the face as it catches the light.
And of course, unblended swatches (except 'Moon Beam').
L-R: Wet n Wild 'Reserve Your Cabana', The Balm 'Mary-Lou Manizer', Benefit 'Watt's Up', Benefit's 'Moon Beam'
Annnnd there you have it. The products I use for a cheekbones ~sharper~ than glass. (I just realised I wrote 'High Beam' instead of 'Moon Beam' in the first photo...)
Do you guys use a highlighter on a daily basis? What is/are your favourite highlighter(s)?
On another quick note, my friend recently started a menswear blog, and I'd love it if you checked it out...and maybe a follow? SUPER STYLISH RESULTS GUARANTEED ;)
