My favourite highlighters: one powder, one cream
If there is a trend that caught the makeup world by storm in 2016, it’s most definitely highlighting and strobing. While I can’t say that I am the most passionate contouring fan—mostly because it can quickly appear murky and overdone—it's totally the opposite with highlighter. I enjoy how incredibly easy it is, whether it’s for a day or an evening look, to illuminate some key features such as the brow bone, bridge of the nose, high point of the cheeks and the cupid’s bow.
I have had the opportunity to try a few highlighters over the past few months, and so today, I would like to share with my favourite ones with you.
My first pick is the Fresh FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer. I like this pearlescent cream for its natural-looking finish and its versatility. In fact, you can either decide to mix this lightweight formula with your foundation for a lit-from-within glow or use it over your makeup on the high points of your face for a dewy and radiant effect. Either way, it will give your skin a fresh and youthful glow.
My second favourite is the stunning Make Up For Ever Pro Light Fusion in shade 01 Golden Pink. This highly pigmented gel-powder is so finely milled that it blends effortlessly and lasts all day long. It might appear metallic in the pan but fear not because this highlighter imparts a subtle ethereal sheen without any chunky glitter. For an evening makeup, try to wet your brush before applying the product to achieve a more dramatic, but still very wearable look.
