New and Favourite Highlighters

There are so many different kind of highlighters. Highlighting pens, Concealers, shimmer powders, matte powders etc, but finding one that's right for you can be tricky. Firstly, try not to confuse Concealers with highlighters. Of course use a lighter concealer for coverage and to highlight points of your face you would like to bring forward, however don't mix this up with a shimmery highlighter. The last thing you want to do is pack on highlighter where you would put your concealer e.g on blemishes, scars under the eyes, as this will make everything look shimmery and more obvious!

Tips for the perfect glow : 

• apply an illuminator/ llluminating moisturiser underneath your foundation (Sanctuary do an amazing radiance cream!) - this adds light and reflection through the foundation.

• apply a bright highlighter to the top of your cheek bones, bridge of the nose, Cupid's bow & forehead. My favourites will be listed below!

• finish off your look with a make up setting spray, this reduces the look of powdery skin, creating even more of a sheen to the skin.

My Favourite highlighters:

NARS - Albatross
Gorgeous white colour with a gold shimmer undertone, perfect for the tops of cheek bones. 
MAC - Vanilla Pigment
Lovely bright white pigment, use this on your brow bone for ultimate glow!
MAC - Soft and Gentle
Amazing on every skin tone, more of a Bronzey colour with specs of gold shimmer , lovely for cheeks and even eyes.

Hope this post has helped anyone with choosing a highlighter!
