Ok, so now that the Sun is shining on us on this warm afternoon, what more than a beautiful highlight swept above the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose and above the cupid's bow to create that stunning, natural, dewy look.

Today the three highlighters that shall be discussed are:

  1. MAC's Strobecream
  2. Topshop's 'Glow' Highlighter
  3. Sleek's 'Face Contour and Highlighter' Duo

1.) Mac's Strobecream £22.50 (left side of my hand) is a pinky coloured highlighter which when blended into the skin gives a lovely sheen upon the face. It can be used before application of your foundation or after applying your foundation on certain areas of the face, such as top of your cheekbones and above the bridge of your nose. Another amazing part of this highlighter is it can also be mixed with your foundation for a luminous look. My personal opinion is it is best suited for combination (more to drier side of skin) or dry skin.

2. Topshop's 'Glow' Highlighter £9.00 (middle swatch on my hand) is a gold highlighter and for those who wish for a more obvious highlight as it is very pigmented. It blends very easily as it is of a whipped texture so it is very soft and again leaves a very luminous look.

3.) Sleek's 'Face Contour and Highlight' Duo £6.49 (third swatch on my hand above) is a very hyped product which many of us beauty junkies all have. The highlighter is very natural looking and it is in a powdered form so for those with more oilier skin will maybe prefer. This is also a goldy' finish on the skin and for £6.49 you can't really go wrong!

Overall, they are all such beautiful highlighters, however my favourite would be Topshop's Glow Highlighter as it is very pigmented and blends very well. Thank you for reading and please hit 'FOLLOW' if you enjoyed reading. :)
