Highlighter Heaven: My Top 5 Highlighters
This is probably the hardest post I have ever written. It is like asking someone to choose their favourite child - you love them all equally but there is always one (or in this case 5) that stands out. But I'm not talking about children, i'm talking about Highlighters.
I am OBSESSED with highlighters!
It's definitely my favourite kind of makeup to buy and I love how highlighting can transform your entire look and create a gorgeous glow!
In this blog post I am going to share my top 5 favourite powder highlighters and have swatched each below so you can see for yourself how amazing they are!
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector - 'Rose Quartz'
This was literally love at first sight! Thankfully my boyfriend was in America during it's release so I sent him straight to Sephora to snag one for me! I am huge fan of Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfectors and Champagne Pop (in collab with Jaclyn Hill) was my ride or die until this beauty came along! The pigmentation is gorgeous and the finish is a pretty, pearlized glow!
Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Sweets' Glow Kit - 'Taffy'
This is my favourite of the ABH Glow Kits! I generally like to mix the shades Taffy and Butterscotch together but if I had to choose one fave from the palette it would definitely be Taffy. A little bit definitely goes a long way for this fusion of peach, pink, and gold reflect!
Jouer Powder Highlighter - 'Rose Quartz'
It may share the same name as the Becca highlighter but the Jouer Powder Highlighter in Rose Quartz is a totally different colour and equally as beautiful! This gorgeous champagne pink shimmer is such a smooth and creamy powder formula which glides onto the skin!
Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist Pro Glow Palette - 'Lit'
The Tarte Pro Glow Palette is going to have me LIT this summer! I first saw this on Snapchat during a Tarte Bora Bora blogger vacay and I knew I had to have it! It contains 4 highlighters and 2 contour shades but my fave highlighter shade would have to be 'Lit'. This perfect champagne shimmer is buildable to create the ultimate lit from within glow!
Scout Cosmetics Illuminate*
This Australian made, natural beauty is a beautiful loose powder highlighter which I love using on the daily for a nice, natural glow. Scout Cosmetics makes the most gorgeous mineral makeup and if you only ever try one thing from their range you are guaranteed to fall in love with this highlighter!
My favourite way to highlight is by picking up the product on a fluffy fan brush and sweeping it over the high points of the face and body: tops of the cheekbones, brow bone, bridge of the nose, cupids bow, shoulders and collar bones.
