Hello, gorgeous! 

Doing my makeup everyday, I noticed then I tend to use a highlighter more and more often. I really like my makeup look to be glowing as this way it looks healthy and more beautiful overall. And I have to admit, that this trend in makeup has become stronger over the year as we can see that the amount of products intended to create glow and highlight on our face has significantly increased.

I really wonder whether you also like to use highlighters? And if it is a part of your daily routine? Or you save it for special occasions? What do you think about highlighting as the whole? And what are favorite highlighters up to date? What type of highlighter do you like to use – cream, liquid or powder?

The highlighters I own differ a lot in the intensity, color and milling. Previously the highlighters seemed to be the privilege of high-end makeup, but the last year proved that drugstore brands can really be good at creating decent highlighting products. And I personally love to use highlighters for the reasons stated above and I got used to using them daily, even without proper contour – just to brighten up the face and to add some luminosity to the look.

As for my daily makeup routine I usually go for the highlighters that create quite subtle effect, without some visible sparkling particles and I generally prefer finely milled textures. But for special occasions I definitely choose something way more sparkly and noticeable on the face as this type of highlighter does usually look perfect in photographs and in the night time.

My most favorite highlighters and as a result most used are currently the following products: Hourglass Incandescent Light (from Ambient Lighting Palette Trio), MAC Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish, The Balm Mary-Lou Manazer the Luminizer, The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter and Essence Soo Glow! Cream to powder highlighter in 20 Bright up your life. All of these products are of a different price range and create different effects, but all of them perform just perfectly and I absolutely love each and one of these highlighters. And although I tend to use all different types of highlighters, I prefer the powder consistency due to its convenience.

I will be happy to hear what you think and what products you like!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

Dorothea
