Spotlight on Highlighters ….


Highlighters are the magic wands that will make your face glow and light up.  There are a vast range on the market and come in powder and cream forms.
Here, I review some highlighters from my make-up drawer.

SOAP AND GLORY – GLOW ALL OUT 

This is one of my all time favourite highlighters. It features Lightscramble luminous pigment pearls which gives this a peachy, shimmery finish.  Apply with a brush onto the cheekbones or all over the face for a beautiful glowy sheen.


BENEFIT – WATT’S UP!

This is a beautiful creamy highlighter that comes in a stick form.  It has a sponge applicator on one end, but I don’t use this as it tends to pull at the skin, so I just use my finger or blend it in with a  brush or Real Techniques beauty blender.  It is a creamy champagne colour that sets to a powder finish.


ELIZABETH ARDEN – SHIMMER POWDER – NUDE SHIMMER

I actually got this as a Christmas gift last year, and it may have been a special edition.  They do have similar products available in their range.  This comes with a sponge applicator, but I tend to use a fine fan powder brush to apply.  It is a very fine champagne powder that sits beautifully on the skin.  Apply across cheekbone, down the centre of the nose and on the cuspids bow for an illuminating look.


REVOLUTION – BAKED HIGHLIGHTER IN PINK LIGHTS, GOLDEN LIGHTS AND HIDDEN LIGHTS

At Christmas I was given the Revolution Advent Calendar and it included these three highlighters.  At first glance they seemed to be a little over the top in respect of shimmer and colour.  However, once I tried them I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely they were.  They are highly pigmented and sheer, they glide onto the skin and are easily blended.  These are definitely worth a try, as they are such a reasonable price.
