Today's post is all about the glow! Highlighters have blown up on the makeup scene in the last two years and there is no signs of them going away anytime soon. Today, I'm going to show you some of my favourite highlights, where you can get them and how much your bank balance will suffer. Here we go...
MAC Cosmetics - Soft & Gentle
Do I even need to explain? MAC's soft & gentle is a cult classic and with good reason. It is a stunning peach bronze colour that looks so pretty on tanned skin. It is highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. As you can see my one is much loved and once it's gone I will definitely be purchasing again! You can get it for €31.50 on the Brown Thomas website.
Hourglass Ambient Light Powder
The hourglass ambient lighting powders are some of the best setting powders on the market. They are expensive but they give a flawless airbrush finish as they defuse light. The above shade is Diffused Light and it is a white highlight that gives a natural 'glow from within' and photographs beautifully. They are available in a range of shades at Harvey Nicolas and cost €50
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
Again Becca is well known for their beautiful highlighters and this one is my fave! It's in the shade Moonstone which was released with the Jaclyn Hill Collection and then made permanent. It is an intense glow so it's not for the faint hearted but if you love to blind people with them cheekbones then you'll love this. It's on Cult beauty for €36.
Sleek Highlighting Palette
So inexpensive, so amazing! This is by far my favourite hightlight palette. I love the lavender shade in the Solstice on my pale skin. It has one cream shade(top left) and three creamy powders. It also comes with a little brush but as per usual I have that taken out and lying round somewhere in the makeup room! You can pick Sleek Makeup up in pharamacies throughout the country or on Boots.ie and it's a lovely €14.95
MAC Oh! Darling
I wasn't going to include this as it was limited addition when I purchased it last Christmas but I am delighted to say that MAC have now made this a permanent product which means I can use it as much as I like without being sad when it's gone because I can buy it again! It's a gorgeous rich gold colour and I also love it for a pop of shimmer on the eyes. Grab it here for €31.50
So there you have it. My fave highlighters... Most of them are that gold finish but if I had to chose just one it would be the Sleek Palette. The shades are gorgeous and it's good value for money!
