A couple of weeks ago I was having a very stressful few days. One morning during those weeks I was feeling very down and not so great. When I was getting ready to go to work I looked over at my highlighters and I said to myself 'Today is a good day to start wearing highlighter!' That my friend that is exactly how my highlighting obsession started! I truly haven't left the house without wearing highlight every since that fine day!
If you know me personally, then you will know that I don't wear makeup on a daily biases. So, I don't have a many highlighters. But here are two that I'm loving right now!!
Pixi - Rose Gold Beauty Blush Duo
Pixi was my first love when it comes to highlighters!! I love this highlighter because you get 3 out of 1! You get a gold'n highlighter, a more pink highlighter and when you mix them both together you get a rose gold highlighter! On an everyday biases, I just like to wear the gold highlighter on its own! I don't think I will ever wear the pink shade by itself. But, I feel like when you mix the pink and gold together It gives it an even more natural look. I like to go with just the gold for a little bit more brightness! You can apply it lightly for a soft glow or you can build it up and get more of a blinding glow! You seriously get everything you need out of this little green pot!
The Balm - Mary-Lou Manizer
I just got this in the mail this past week and OH MY GOSH this is such a gorgeous highlighter! So beautiful! No wonder it's one of The Balm's best sellers! It's like a cool tone gold look and which makes it so wearable for the day time! It gives you such a natural sheen to the face and melts into the skin beautifully! The texture is so creamy and soft! You can use the tiniest amount and still get amazing pigment!
If you want to feel like your're "glowing from within", then you need this in your life!
Before I go, I though it would be nice to let you know what kinds of brushes I use to apply my highlighter.
Now, these aren't my favorite brushes to use for highlighting but this brushes do the job! If you have any highlighting brushes that you enjoy! Please let me know in the comments!
Sephora - PRO Tapered Crease #19 Brush
I love this brush! This is my go to brush for a lot of different things! I use it to just swipe on a single eye shadow on my eyes. I use it for what its technically supposed to be used for...a crease brush. Now I also like to use it for highlighting my cheeks! Since this brush is really meant to be used for the eyes. It does feel a little scratchy on the cheeks and that is why I picked up this next brush
Kiss Cosmetics - Fan Brush
A few months ago I noticed that CVS was carrying a new brand named Kiss Cosmetics! I've never heard of this brand before, so I picked up a few things and this fan brush happens to be one of those things! This is a great fan brush! It applies highlight so soft and light! Which is exactly what I want for an everyday look! Highly recommend!
It's so fun putting on highlighter everyday! It can really be a mood lifter for sure! It's the little things in life!
I hope you enjoyed!
Have a wonderful day!
