My top 3 highlighters..

So after the longest post ever yesterday, I decided today's would be shorter, yet possibly still useful to some..

At the minute highlight or 'strobing' is a massive trend on the beauty scene, we all want to be as glowy and dewy as possible. Having glowing skin is a sign of a healthy lifestyle and also youthfulness, two things that of course the majority of us would love to look! Definitely me anyway. So I thought I'd do a post on my favourite highlighters, because unfortunately for me I'm not one of these people who has natural glowing cheeky bones, especially not ones that can be seen through a layer of Studio Fix anyway. They say if you can't make it, fake it. So I'm opting for that route. Here they are..

Now I haven't organised these in order of favouritism, I decided to do them by price, going from the lowest to the most expensive. That way you can work out your budget and choose accordingly if you're looking for a new one.

So first up this is the Topshop Glow Pot. This was one of my first highlighters a few years ago, and still one I go for now. It's a cream highlighter in a glass pot, and can be applied with a brush or with your hands. It is super creamy and one that definitely needs working into the skin, but because it is so rich it doesn't take too long to blend it in! The Glow pot is a white gold shimmer, and when I use it I like to apply the smallest amount to my cheekbones in tiny dot form, and pat it in with my fingers. This colour looks amazing on the brow bone as well for added shimmer. If you're ever in Topshop, just go over to the make up stand and swatch this product on your hand. You will be instantly sold!

Next up is one I mentioned in a post just last week so I won't say much about it, and that's the Mary Lou Manizer. A powder highlight with a gorgeous champagne shimmer, perfect for more dramatic evening looks. A little goes a long way with this product too so it's definitely a good investment!

Finally, we have a highlight I bought earlier this year and I was obsessed with it for months. This is the Mac Mineralise Skin Finish in Lightscapade. Ah I just love this! I can't decide what I like more, how it looks on my face or how it looks in the pan ha! This highlighter in the pan has white, silver, pale blue, lemon and a pale pink colour all swirled into one. On your cheeks it looks more of a white silver shimmer with the tiniest hints of the colours, but in the best way possible. I would say this one definitely adds the most natural looking glow and I think that has something to do with the colours running through it. Apparently these colours help to colour correct any discolouration of the skin which is fab if you suffer from redness like me. I love this highlighter because it's buildable, if you want a subtle highlight, then you just need to swirl your brush over the pan and dust onto your cheeks. For a more dramatic glow, simply repeat this a couple of times. This is the most expensive of the three products, but this is another one that will last for ages so it is really good value for money.

Let me know if you recommend any other highlighters, or if you've tried anything else from the Topshop range, I'd love to know!
