My Favourite Highlighters

Hi again,

With summer in full swing I love a good highlight, and find myself constantly adding to my collection. It can make such a difference to even a simple daytime make up look and its definitely a must have in my make up bag, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourites.

Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder

One of the best highlighters I have tried is an absolute steal from Catrice costing a mere €5.50, this is right up there with the best. After using both I could easily compare this to MaryLou from The Balm. It is so pigmented and has a beautiful rosy glow, using a fan brush this applies so easily and for something so cheap you don't have to scrap at the powder to get a glow. It is in high demand but keep an eye in penneys as it is a must have for that shimmer we all love.

SoSu Contour Palette

This palette was one purchase I couldnt wait to get my hands on, reading reviews before hand I wasn't sure if it was worth the money as people seemed to have mixed feelings about it. The reviews were almost 50% loved it and 50% didn't but me being me I needed to decide for myself. However I am so glad I did purchase as this has an amazing highlighter in the palette which is now one of my favourites. Following SoSueMe on snapchat I heard her talking about the best way to apply the highlighter and that was with a damp beauty blender, as its a cream highlight, and pat it onto your face and thats exactly what I did. I sprayed some of my Botanics Instant Moisture Mist onto my blender and patted the highlight onto the highest points of my cheek bone and down the centre of my nose. It went on so easy and it didn't take much to get that lovely glow that I adore. the lasting power of this palette is amazing too, with a spray of my NYX setting spray it stayed perfect all day, a big thumbs up from me.

The Pippa Palette

The Pippa Palette is another must have in my opinion, it has everything in one palette and can get you through from day to night. One of my favourite things about this palette is the highlighter (called Lulu). It is a powder highlight with an amazing glow, a little goes along way and using a fan brush its as simple as just brushing your cheek bone. I brought this palette on holidays with me and everyday I used the highlight just to give a nice summery glow. The thing I like most about Lulu is it works just as well with matt foundations because sometimes I find the cream highlights just cling to the matt foundation and don't blend well leaving my skin looking dirty and muddy. As an all rounder the Pippa Palette is great, pigmentation is amazing and is so handy for travelling so you don't have to bring 100 products.
