5 highlighters for the perfect glow

Leave a Comment
The cool chill of Autumn has well and truly hit it's peak this week, the chilly weather has certainly pushed me to stay wrapped in my duvet and french bulldog socks all day. You may be wondering whether or not the Winter of 2015 had me trapped in my bed forever... Maybe i fell in love with Bali and just decided to live there? If only... The point is i'm back lovelies and I'm here to stay so why not start the new and improved blog up with my top 5 highlighters that'll give you that sun-kissed glow...without the sun.

I'm a highlighter girl at heart, whether i'm hitting the beach, strolling those Sunday Markets or just brunching it with my girls a good glow is always a must. 

Inglot Sparkling dust shade 01

A loose highlighting powder for a serious glow. The Inglot sparkling Dust is your new beauty best friend if you're after a highlighter/illuminator that packs a punch of sparkle. This highlighter really catches the light, I use this on a fan brush as the consistency means you only need a little to seriously glow up your skin. I also love using this as an eyeshadow by spraying a flat eyeshadow brush with MAC Fix+. 

Tarte Cosmetics Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette vol. II

The Tarte Skin Twinkle lighting palette vol. II, is by far my most loved and most used highlighter out of my collection. The first two shades have been my saviours when being too lazy to fake-tan, these shades are simply perfect for fair skin shades. The consistency is incredibly creamy and so pigmented perfect for the cheekbones and under brow arch!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit- Sun dipped

This is my most recent highlighter purchase, I am clearly obsessed with highlighters and don't plan to stop purchasing or using them any time soon! ABH are the queens of highlight so I'd be a fool not to try out their Sun Dipped Glow Kit, which I believe is a Sephora exclusive. These tones are definitely more suited to more olive or in my case Bondi Sands tanned skin tones but are equally as gorgeous as the Tarte quad. The also have a similar glow as the quad but slightly less creamy so you may need a little more application. 

Mac Mineralised Skin Finish- Soft and Gentle 

A beauty must have! MAC Soft & Gentle has been a cult favourite for years so of course this needed to be mentioned! As this baby is a skin finish it has a more subtle glow when compared to the others but a gorgeous champagne finish for a natural glow. If i want a little extra shimmer and sparkle I spray my brush in a little Fix+ just to build that glow. 

Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Twinkle

Benefit's first ever powder highlighter!  This baby forms part of Benefits Dandelion range and is a subtle pinky-champagne shade perfect for fair skin tones! I also love using this under my brow bone for a subtle pop of glowing pink perfection. This is definitely more of a day wear highlighter as it really gives you that perfect ' glowing from within' look. 

Have I tempted you with any of my faves? Let me know your favourites that i could add to my collection, I'd love to know.
