Let’s all take a moment to thank that genius person who invented the highlighter♥ It gives us the power to transform our facial features by adding the glow in the right places and always look fresh! As I mentioned in one of my recent videos, out of all makeup items – HIGHLIGHTER is probably my favorite one these days!!!
So, let’s get deeper into the topic!
Highlighters come in powder (which I prefer the most), cream and liquid forms
4 popular shades are: White/Pearl undertone, Rose undertone, Gold undertone, Champagne undertone.
1. White / Pearl
The perfect representation of a highlighter with this undertone is MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade. It is the most suitable for lovely “snow whites” with pale skin undertones. Also looks gorgeous on eyes as inner corners highlighter.
When I think of rose toned highlighters, the first product that comes to my mind is LAURA MERCIER Face Illuminator in Spellbound. True lovers of highlighters of this undertone will love it and never go back to anything they used before! Even though it’s a high end product and quite pricey – it’s so worth it! A little goes a long way and looks amazing♥
Here’s is a great example of a gold undertone highlighter in a liquid form – BENEFIT’s Sun Beam golden bronze complexion highlighter. Looks stunning on chocolate goddesses! This is exactly what you need to get that popular JLo glow
The name of this highlighter speaks for itself! Jaclyn Hill’s collaboration with BECCA Cosmetics brought into the highlighter world an absolute masterpiece, which is Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop! I am mentioning this specific product because it is magically suitable for every skin tone! In other words if you do not know which shade of highlighter is exactly perfect for you – go for champagne.
That’s what I did when I just started using highlighters)
This one is my current favorite! Its creamy formula helps it to just glide on lips and moisturize them throughout the whole time of wearing. For a drugstore product, this is an amazing lipstick and a perfect nude color for my skin tone!
2. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick – Pure Zen
MAC lipsticks formula is great like nothing else! This one suits best for a darker skin tones than mine. Very creamy, feels perfect on lips, makes them feel super soft.
3. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte – 001 Nude Beige
A high end version of a perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone! Have had this one for months, not using it on a daily basis though! That’s the only reason it’s not # 1 in my list. BTW, totally worth the splurge!
