Hey gals and guys!
This month has been a bit of a dull one in the UK. Lets be honest, storm after storm, grey and wet days. Not to mention the cold. Yeah we’ve had one or two sunny days but come on! We want summer already. Just because the weather isn’t glowing that doesn’t mean our skin can’t. Am i right?! When the skies grey and gloomy let your skin shine through! Look more radiant than ever with our gorgeous friend, the highlighter. Some call this method strobing but i just call it glowing. Either way i think it just looks gorgeous. I’ve seen Instagram pictures where their highlight is just on point and they look amazing. I need to learn how to be as good as them. You know the pictures i’m on about? Perfectly clear skin, vibrant highlighter and winged liner that is just slaying!
Unfortunately the photos i took don’t show the highlight as well as it does in person. I’m afraid i’m not doing it justice.
Whether you use powder highlighter or liquid, or even both. It doesn’t matter, whatever you prefer. I like to apply my MAC soft and gentle highlighter (which i’m loving at the moment) Using a dampened fan brush, when i say dampened what i really mean is spritzed once with setting spray. The reason i do this is because it makes the highlighter even stronger and more pigmented. I also do this for eyeshadow sometimes for the exact same reason.
Where to apply?
Once you’ve got your foundation, concealer, powder, contour.. Whatever you use on. Apply highlighter on the high points of your face. Including: The cheekbones, cupids bow, bridge of the nose and i like to put some above my brows, or under them. Whichever i fancy. And voila, you have a bright, fresh glowing look. I also like to put some on the inner corners of my eyes to open them and make them stand out. Trust me you’ll love it!
Also, this amazing river island bomber jacket i ordered arrived today. It is so comfy and gorgeous. I love khaki shades at the minute and bomber jackets seem to be in sale, i’ve seen similar in topshop, misguided, new look and boohoo etc. This one was around £45.99, i did really like the new look one but it was too puffy and i looked like a giant puffa fish. Not a good look for me i must say! Do you own a bomber jacket or want one?! I’d love to know! I must say the pink ones have won my heart. I’d feel like i was one of the pink ladies (grease)
Lots of love
