Highlighters of the moment

I probably own more highlighters and illuminators than I actually need...but then again which make-up addict doesn't:)
However, the following two highlighters are the ones that I've been reaching for the most lately and they do deserve a mention.

Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme in Rose Gold
Quite a long name for a highlighter but I have to say that the words "dewy", "glow", "radiance" and "creme" ensured that I was going to get it.
I adore cream formulations so it's no surprise that this highlighter was destinied for my make-up kit.
Dewy Glow All over Radiance Creme in Rose Gold is a peachy gold shade that adds subtle luminosity to the skin and is thus perfect for daytime wear as you can't really go over the top with it.
The soft creamy texture makes this highlighter very easy to apply and blend. It can be used under or over foundation or on bare skin. 

The Balm Mary-Lou Maniser

Probably my favourite highlighter that I own. Although it is a powder highlighter, it has a very creamy texture and can very easily be applied and blended out with the fingers as well.
Mary-Lou Maniser is very pigmented so needs to be applied with a light hand and is the ideal highlighter for evening or party make-up looks. It catches the light beautifully and gives an amazing golden glow.

In addition to highlighting your brow bone, cheek bones and cupid's bow, this also looks amazing as an eyeshadow and is perfect for highlighting the inner corner of the eye.
I'm loving it!!!

What are your favourite highlighters?

  3. I love make up and i love high lighters even more! thanks for sharing, i want to get a new one and now i know what options to choose from. xoxo your amazing have a great day.

  4. Make up is a thing which a girl never resist from. A perfect make up is incomplete without a highlighter because your features can not be enhanced. This higlighter shade is perfect for my skin too.s.
