Highlighters have become a core part of most people's makeup routines but finding the right one can be a tricky task as there are so many to choose from. From drugstore to high end, highlighters are everywhere. I recently realised that out of all of the highlighters that I have tried out, I keep going back to the same two, either using them alone or layered together.
Although I'm not keen on an overly intense highlighted look, I do love the way that a little highlighter dusted over the cheekbones, nose and cupids bow adds a healthy glow to the skin and pulls together a makeup look. I prefer to use a cream highlighter as a base then layer a powder over top for a longer lasting highlight.
Sometimes I will apply just a cream highlight however if I want an extra oomph of highlight I like to apply Mac's Mineralise Skin Finish in 'Soft and Gentle', a somewhat of a cult classic in the blogging world. This highlighter is intensely pigmented so I like to use a duo fibre brush for a more subtle finish. Again this is champagne in colour however is more warm toned and is a colour that I think a lot of people could get away with wearing.
