Shine bright like a disco ball!! Highlighter GALORE


Where do I begin? Most of you know I am obsessedddddddddddd with highlighters!!! Its my favorite makeup product to use. I actually collect them. Nothing I enjoy more then glowing, it gives such light to the face and brings out your features. I was never a fan of matte looks. Even when it was "in" a couple of years ago, I always wore highlighters. Bring on the DEWWWW hunnyyyy.  I'm also expecting another highlighter that was recommended by a friend but its not listed in the photos. Its the Becca shimmering skin powder highlighter in "Opal". Will do an updated review on it when it arrives. Ok back to the ones listed. One of my first favorite highlighters is Mac "Whisper of Gilt". Its a bright golden shade. I used to wear it alllllll the time, before I discovered Estee Lauder "Heat Wave". "Heat Wave" is like "Whisper of Gilt" on crack. They're almost identical in color, but "Heat Wave" is more pigmented. I've had the Mary Lou Manizer for a while and never used it, somehow I ended up losing then seen it on a friend and repurchased it. Its a gorgeous highlight and it adds a champagne golden glow.  If you like pink or peachy tones, Mac "Superb", and "Lightscepade" are great options. If you prefer more of a silvery highlight then Mac "Soft and Gentle" would be essential. My newest discovery is the Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition. It might even be more pigmented then Estee Lauder's "Heat Wave", which is SHOCKING. I didn't even think that was possible considering "Heat Wave" is incredibly pigmented, but the Dior one might be my new favorite. The only bad news is its limited, I know I know I am always wearing products that are discontinued but unfortunately those are the best ones. The Dior highlighter was part of their Summer collection. I do also like the Charlotte Tilbury Scult and Highlight compact, the sculpt shade isn't dark enough for me but the highlight is beautiful. Its not as strong as the others but still offers a really soft golden glow.

  1. Love the Mary-lou-manizer, but now i want to try the mac ones too. Too pity that most of them are limited edition, so it's even harder to buy them in Estonia.

  13. My question for you is what brush do you use for your highlight? I have such dry skin so I never feel like things stick well enough on me. I use moisturizer, primer, Armani luminous foundation and a little MUFE HD microfinish powder to set then do contour, blush, highlight. Do you have any suggestions for what might help? I use a Sigma F05 brush typically to do my highlight. I am so curious what you use because your glow is always so on point!

    I have been following you for years and you were one of the makeup artists who really inspired me to do what I love most. You are always perfection and inspire me daily with my work. : )
