The Highlighter Edit

One of my favourite types of make-up products to use is highlighter - and I especially like to use it during the winter when my skin can look a bit dull and dehydrated. I really like how it adds glow and warmth to the face - it can completely change your make-up look when used correctly! Today I wanted to share with you my favourite highlighter picks, with each one being a slightly different formula.

Loose powder - Bourjois Java Rice Powder
I'm a huge fan of Bourjois, especially their face products, and this one is no exception. I love the old-fashioned packaging, and the highlighter itself is stunning too. It's slightly pink toned and very shimmery, so a little goes a long way, and it just adds a gorgeous sheen to the skin without being too in-your-face. It has a perfumed scent which might not be to everyone's taste, but personally I like it!

Powder - MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle
I've had this product for years now but I refuse to part with it - it's lasted me ages and I'm determined to eventually hit pan on it! It's still a powder formula but in a pressed form, which makes life a little bit easier if you can't be bothered to put in too much effort in the morning. It's somewhere in between a highlighter and bronzer, giving a warm champagne glow to the skin. I love it so much that I use it pretty much every day now, and I'd definitely recommend giving it a go if you haven't already!

Cream - No 7 Instant Radiance
This is probably my favourite highlighter out of the bunch, and the only reason I don't use it as often as my MAC one is sheer laziness - cream formulas take a bit more effort to work into the skin, however the effect it gives is definitely worth the time. I find the best way to apply this is with my fingers, as using it straight from the bullet can sometimes rub away my foundation. Being a cream formula, it has great pigmentation and gives a shimmery gold highlight to the face.

Have you tried any of these products? If not, what highlighter would you recommend?

  2. The bourjois one looks and sounds amazing- I will defiantly be picking on of those up. I also like the look of the MAC Soft and Gentle as it almost doubles up as a bronzer, like you said!
