Hightlight of the Week!

                                                      Happy Saturday Everyone!!

 Highlighting and Contouring are big amongst the beauty world. With the whole idea of strobing now coming into play, highlighting your face has never been so crucial.
I love a good highlighter, I don't think the whole dewy skin look works well for me since I find I have quite oily skin on certain parts of my face.
          I would normally go for a matte foundation or a foundation for combination skin which would be quite drying on the face, what I need, but I find it really takes that natural glow away. I have tried out so many highlighters, very few that I have not agreed with or liked.

          All highlighters I had tried are a range of high end to high street, liquid to powder. I would normally prefer a powder highlighter but I have never had a bad experience with liquid highlighters.

Everyday Glows....

Garnier Moist Match Moisturiser
From Boots, retails at €8.29
'Protect & Glow'
Gives the perfect natural glow, sets a base for foundation 
and protects the skin. Also contains SPF 20.
I would highly recommend this as it is a 2 in 1, moisturiser and highlighter!

Seventeen Shimmer Brick
From Boots, retails at €6.99
This is great for a subtle glow, it also combines as a contour.
It gives great pigmentation and doesn't leave an oily finish to the skin.

Night time Glows...

Seventeen Skin Wow! Liquid Glow Tan
From Boots, retails at €8.49
Apply under foundation for better results
It holds your foundation in place, gives a deeper tone to your foundation
 and also highlights the skin!
Perfect for nights out as it acts as a barrier
to oily/sweaty skin and stops foundation from sliding off.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle
From Brown Thomas, retails at €30
This is probably my favourite out of all the highlighters I've tried
It gives such a nice finish to the skin
Although it is more on the pricey side it is well worth it!

High Street Vs. High End....


In all cases I found that the dupes or high street version was always just as good as the high end, the only difference was the price!!
I definitely prefer a Highlight Powder or Stick to a cream, purely because I can apply it over my foundation to give more of a dramatic affect.
It also suits my skin type better as it gives more of a Matte finish to the rest of my face.

Stay Stylish,
