After blush, highlighter has to be one of my favorite parts of makeup application.
Why do you ask?
Because the inner glow within you is brought to the surface
Was that too much?
You create a natural or unnatural (depending on how you get your glow on) radiance that elevates your entire makeup look.
Here are my top 8 that are chocolate girl friendly.
Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil
This was one of the first highlighters I ever bought. The price is perfect for a beginner and the payoff is big. It’s a gorgeous gold tone that can be worn everyday and can easily build up to a brighter glow.
This is my baby baby right here, okay! I love this rose gold tone highlight. I seriously get a compliment on my highlight every. single. time. I wear this. I’ve had it for about 2 years and it’s still going strong. A little goes a long way but YOLO, go big or go home, amiright!
These drops seriously have elevated my makeup game. Add a few to your foundation for a subtle glow and amp it up by applying a few more drops before applying powder highlighter.
NARS Illuminator in Laguna (OMG it’s discontinued but I found one here.)
This is an oldie but goodie — so old in fact that they stopped making this. I had no idea because I little goes along way with this baby and I’ve had the same one for a couple of years. I did find a seller on Amazon so there is still hope.
Benefit Gold Rush
My bestie works at Benefit and she introduced me to this beautiful blush. I use it as a highlighter and with a damp brush this gives you an intense gold rush glow!
Artist Couture La Bronze
Thanks to Auntie Jackie Aina we can all glow to the high heavens with her highlight creation in collaboration with Artist Couture. This highly pigmented loose rose gold powder packs a powerful punch. I recently bought it again just because I never want to be without it.
Persona Del Mar
I stumbled upon this highlighter by chance because it was a gift. The best gift ever right?! It’s a beautiful bronze gold and looks so great with a nude lip.
