Highlighters for Glowy Skin

Top 3 Makeup Highlighters

As someone with oily skin, usually the last think I want is to make my face appear any more shiny than it is!  Recently I’ve been experimenting with a few different highlighting products to see if I can achieve a lovely glow without looking like a shiny mess and so far it’s worked out well! I decided to try out a few different highlighting products to find out what works best for me and hopefully it will be helpful for you too!

Loose Powder: Benefit Miss Popularity

Benefit Miss Popularity

I think this was probably one of the first Benefit products I ever tried but I never really got into using it until now.  This highlighter is a loose powder but has a handy applicator for more precise application and less mess! In the booklet it comes with it tells you how to use the product by applying a couple of dots of highlighter in areas and blending it out with a brush or your hands.  As good as the applicator is, I find the powder to be a little bit too glittery and dramatic for me.  Aside from that, its very handy to pop into your handbag for quick touch-ups!

Pressed Powder: MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle

This is probably one of the most popular highlighting products in the beauty blogging world, I’ve never heard anyone say anything bad about this product.  Soft & Gentle is a pressed powder with a very natural subtle shade which looks amazing on the cheekbones.  Originally I had put buying this product off for ages because of the price but for the amount of product you get, this will last you a lifetime! I apply this product using the Illamasqua Blusher Brush.

Liquid: MAC Strobe Cream

MAC Strobe Cream

Originally when I was on the MAC website I was looking for their Lustre Drops but since they were completely sold out I decided I would give the Strobe Cream a try.  This product gives your skin a lovely subtle glow when applied under your make up and basically just brightens up your complexion.  If you're looking for a product which has a much more dramatic highlight then this might not be for you but I think it makes a really lovely base for makeup and I love using it!
