Ive picked my top 5 favourite highlighters to share with you today, I have a mix of cream and powder. I love both types - cream usually gives a bit more of a subtle highlight then powder. I tend to go for cream more in the summer season I don't know why I just do. Also you can always use both cream and powder, apply the cream highlight first then the powder on top, this will make your highlight last longer and be a bit more intense as your layering cream/powder products.
I've picked 3 cream highlights the first one is a Mac Cream Colourbase in 'Pearl' which is a gorgeous light yellow/gold creamy shade, its the least shimmery out of the bunch - its adds more of a beautiful sheen to the skin rather than shimmer.
The next two cream highlighters are the Jemma Kidd All Over Radiance Creams. I'm really sorry I had to put these in here as they are two of my favourites but Jemma Kidd went into administration, so I'm not sure if you will still be able to get hold of these but if you can then snap one up! I have the shades Iced Gold and Rose Gold, did I need both? Probably not! But anyway...Iced gold if a light champagne gold shade and Rose Gold is a big more of a bronzey orange gold.
Another one from Mac, this time it's their Mineralize SkinFinish in 'Soft & Gentle' I love this one so much, if I had to pick one favourite this would probably be it! I've had this one for ages, they last forever! It adds such a lovely glow to the skin, this one is probably the most shimmery out of the 5 but it's nothing too much just the right amount I'd say, it is beautiful!
Lastly Dior Amber Diamond, now I heard this was being discontinued a while ago so I rushed out to get it! But I now I believe it's not so you should be able to get it. It is gorgeous! the shimmer is more finely milled than the others, it has a mixture of highlight shades a creamy white, champagne gold, a bronze, and then a more orangey bronze. You can use them individually or swirl them all together which is what I do and it gives a beautiful subtle glowy, 'lit from within look.'
So there you have my top 5 favourite highlighters, I love them all! I'd love to know what your favourite highlighters are?
