Top 3 Highlighters

Top 3 Highlighters
What is that bright, shiny ball of light I see in the sky lately? Oh yeah it's the sun. Since we are starting to see a bit more sunshine I decided now was the perfect time for me to share what my favourite highlighters are that I tend to reach for achieving a healthy glow.

YSL Touch Eclat | Once my foundation is applied I like to draw a triangle under my eyes using this and then blend it out with my Real Techniques Sponge. This is definitely my favourite highlighter for brightening up the under eye area. It can be a little difficult to blend but I do think using a sponge helps. My eyes instantly look more awake and healthy, people wouldn't believe that you've only had a couple of hours sleep once you use this. Totally worth the price tag.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette | Something that is a lot easier and cheaper to get your hands on is the Makeup Revolution Highlighting Palettes. I am yet to get my hands on the 3 trio palette but for now I like to use this one. This comes with a variety of highlighting shades that are perfect for not only brightening your facial bones (brow, cheeks etc) but for applying over blushers. They don't last all day but they do last a couple of hours and really make a difference to your makeup. I find powdery highlighters easier to apply but more difficult to control. I always use this palette when I want to brighten certain areas on my face, whereas the YSL I use just for under my eyes.

Benefit High Beam | This was sat in my drawer for months without being used, it was only until I watched someone on Youtube apply it on their brow bones that I decided to include it in my everyday makeup routine. Once I have filled my brows in I like to go ahead and dab 2 or 3 dots of this highlighter onto my brow bone and then blend in with my little finger. This really makes a difference to highlighting my brows and making them look a lot more put together. It also looks incredible in any photographs which is a bonus!

What is your favourite highlighter??

    1. Wooo go you indeed! I never used to like High Beam until the last few months weirdly. Aw it is definitely worth the price mind if you are serious about highlighting!

  7. I love the Benefit high beam because it's more of a pearly glow rather than a shimmery glow. I do really want to get my hands on the Makeup Revolution palette though, it looks so beautiful!

    1. I agree I think that's why I love it for my brow bone to give it a lovely glow that's not shimmery. I definitely think give the palette a go!

  12. Benefit High Beam & Watt's Up, ABH So Hollywood, Becca in Moonstone and LG Gilded Honey are a few of my favourites. The Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette is stunning as well, definitely worth looking at.
