My highlighters range from £3 to £50 and they all have their own purpose. The Mega Destiny Highlighter from makeupobsession (£3) is soo super duper pigmented. I only use this if I'm going out, but literally put it everywhere, cheekbones, corners of my eyes, cupids bow, collarbones, you name it, it's on there. The liquid highlighters from barrym and iconic (£7 and £10 respectively) are perfect for getting that glow on holiday. I like a more natural dewy skin when I'm on holiday, so I'll just wack some of this on top of a BB cream. The Film Star Bronze and Glow from ctilbury makeup (£49) is my everyday go to bronzer and highlighter. It's super buildable and natural enough for everyday wear. I use the Light/Medium palette.

That shimmer though!!
Iconic illuminator body shimmer !! ONE of the most pigmented product I’ve tried. I love using this during the summertime when my skin is tan and I need a little bit of glow after using moisturizer , and spf I love putting this on. This product comes in three different shades. This shade : LIGHT ✨ Sephora : $40 A little bit goes a long way !!
Since I’m not able to put makeup on my face for the moment because of my condition I’ll just post some throwback makeup 🎨 Can’t wait to be able to paint my face 🥺!

A pretty, but slightly overpriced blush
COVER FX - Monochromatic Blush Duo is a powder blush with a matte and shimmery side. I got this for half off at Ulta a few months ago in the shade Warm Honey, a bronzed rose shade. The packaging is my favorite part. It looks so clean and sleek. The product looks gorgeous sitting in the pans. However, the product itself is underwhelming. It’s a normal powder blush. I like to apply with a blush brush and when I dip the product in the matte side, I get a good amount. It’s enough for one application. The shimmery side is less pigmented than the matte side. It adds the slightest glimmer. Sometimes, I like to dip my brush between the two colors. When I do that though, I still end up with more matte than shimmer. Bottom line, I would not recommend this product unless you REALLY want it. It’s a normal blush with no defining characteristics.

Tower28 has a piece of my heart
There are so many amazing things about Tower28. They’re a clean beauty brand with so many diverse models modeling their makeup. As a woman of color, I love to see the makeup on a range of different woman. I’ve tried several products from Tower28 and am never disappointed. In the photo are 2 of my favorites: their lip jelly and their cream bronzer. TOWER 28 - ShineOn Lip Jelly applies in a way that no other lip gloss has applied for me. It’s so smooth and light! It doesn’t feel like a lip gloss. There’s no stickiness or tackiness. It applies like water and still maintains the glossiness of a lip gloss. I have 2 shades as of now and definitely plan on getting more. TOWER 28 - Bronzino Illuminating Cream Bronzer is a one of a kind cream bronzer. I’ve tried cream bronzers before, but always found them difficult to work with. Bronzino is soooo creamy and gives me the cutest sun-kissed look. There is shimmer, but it’s not overwhelming at all. I seriously have nothing but love for this brand. Their brand philosophy is so inspirational and I will probably support this brand for a long, long time!

Some new new 🙌😍 Ok so I recently did some damage at Ulta and these are some of the products I picked up. I’m loving all of them so far. ⭐️ Beauty Bakerie - Cotton Candy Champagne Blush Palette- super glowy blushes! What more could you ask for? They call these “blushlighters” and I couldn’t think of a better name for them. You don’t even need highlighter if you use these! But of course, I still add some 😉 ⭐️ persona - Season One Lip Gloss- I ended up getting every shade of these. So far I’ve used the shade Honey the most, but I’m loving Pink & Peach a lot as well! The other two are the same beautiful formula, just shades that I don’t wear quite as often but I can’t wait to get my use out of them!

Highlight Comparison: Creme vs. Powder
I am a fan of all highlighter textures, but in recent months, my go-tos have all been crème formulas – with my favorite being Bodyography’s dual stick crème highlight. It’s the most perfect champagne color and it melts into the skin to create the perfect shimmery-dewy-glowy effect. Compared to powder formulas like Physician’s Formula’s Butter Highlight, I find crème highlights to be the best for creating a natural glow. I always apply my crème highlights with my fingers, which adds to the natural no-makeup makeup effect and helps me get closer to the areas I want to highlight and draw light to. I find myself reaching for powder formulas when I want a real strobing look and layer it on top of my cremes for a dramatic, eye-catching look.
PHYSICIANS FORMULA-Butter Highlighter
These are the blushes from colourpop Spring collection! I'm really into blush lately so I'm going to get a lot of use out of these. My current favs are Count Me In, She Did That and Get Leid (I think that one is re-promote) Get Leid- bright peach, Yes She Did- pinky terracotta, Tuned In- bright cool-toned pink, Count Me In- soft pink, No Vacancy- bright pinky coral, Growth Flirt- mid-tone pink
COLOURPOP-Super Shock Blush
this is the beaut highlighter wand from charlotte tilbury! I use this product when I want a super intense glow on the high points on my face! and the blush version I have in Peachgasm and it’s beautiful again I will use this more of a blush but will definitely skip highlight on that day since it is so glowy. one downside of this product is the packaging if you don’t close it all the way it will leak!✨✨Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand
