There are many different highlighters on the market today and it can be overwhelming when it comes to buying one. I think the best way to choose is to test a few out on your skin first to see what the finish looks like and colour on your skin. Highlighters are often used on fashion shoots and runway shows to enhance cheekbones to make the skin looked polished and glowing.
Highlighters come in different forms there is, liquid, cream and powder highlighters and they can really give tired skin a healthy glow. Some highlighters contain a lot of shimmer, which is nice for evening looks, and then there are subtler highlighters that give a more natural look that makes the skin look glowing from within.These are a few of my favourite highlighters that work well for me.
+BECCA Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector– 50 ml/ 1.7 fl $66 is used on a lot of modelling shoots as it gives a beautiful glow that looks natural.The best part is that is suitable for daytime and evening. It comes in several shades, I have the Pearl shade which is a white pearl shade which is the lightest of the collection. Once I apply my foundation I apply a small amount on the top of my cheekbones and the bridge on my nose, i like to make sure to blend the edges well with my foundation brush.
+Topshop Sunbeam Highlighter– This is one of my favourite highlighters for the evening and looks great with a bronze makeup look. I apply my bronzer first to sculpt my cheekbones then add the golden highlight. It is a light golden powder highlighter that is smooth and blends easily. It is great for applying to tops of cheekbones and dusting over shoulders and decolletage.This is another well-priced quality highlighter and you can pick one up at Topshop for about $18.
Sleek Face Form – This is a shimmering beige powder highlighter that is suitable for day or night time and works well dusted on top of cheekbones, the cupids bow and bridge of nose. I like the Sleek Face Form palette because it contains a highlighter, bronzer and blush all in one which is easy for travelling .It is really good quality and at an affordable price, it also comes in four shades depending on your skin tone.It is available at Sleek makeup for $12.49.
