I love highlighter! I love the way it adds subtle radiance and a dewy finish to an otherwise matte face and the way it catches and reflects light. Finding your perfect highlighter can be a tricky business, depending on your skin tone, pore size, blemishes, fine lines etc...
I have a few highlighters that I love, and I don't seem to have a personal preference for cream or powder products. Being fair skinned, the highlighters I favour tend to be cool-toned, e.g. pink or silvery, however my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in the shade Soft & Gentle, breaks this rule. I would class this as being a warm-toned highlighter due to the shades of gold and bronze yet it looks lovely on fair skin. The colour pay-off is sheer and light, and the shimmer is fine (no chunks of glitter here!!) and so this lack of intensity means it looks great on all skin tones.
I like to use a real techniques setting brush available here to apply this product. I swirl the brush around and dust it down the centre of my nose, underneath my brow bone and at the tops of my cheeks.
I use this product a lot, and haven't even began to dent its beautiful surface. This product might honestly last me a lifetime!
I really enjoy using this product, and it will definitely be joining me on my summer holidays this year, because although it looks great with my fair skin, I think it will look amazing will a tan!
