All About; Liquid Highlighters♥

Highlighters are incredible. I absolutely love how they finish off any makeup look, subtle or bold. Some days I like my highlight to be beaming and blind people, whilst other days I want just a soft and natural glow. Either way, I find that liquid highlighters come in brilliantly. You can use them as a base for your powder highlight, or use them on their own for a lighter glow. It's no surprise that I own a few, and they all work exceptionally well on pale skin.

Seventeen Skin Wow Primer; one word - wow. It really does live up to it's name. Although it's a highlighter, it can be used as a primer too - I've never used it as a primer as it would give a dewy look, and I don't think it would be a good look with my oily skin. With that aside, it truly is a gorgeous highlight. It's striking enough to use alone but used with a powder highlight, you'll be seen from outer space.

Rimmel Good to Glow in 003 Soho Glow; surprisingly, I've never wrote about this highlighter on my blog, no idea why because I love it. It's not as "pale" as the other ones - it has a darker glow to it. It gives a subtle glow which looks really natural. I reckon that with a tan, especially this summer, it will look gorgeous!

The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter; another pearly highlighter, with a slight pink undertone. It's definitely more on the subtle side as it doesn't have any glitter to it. If you're into the dewy look, I believe this highlighter would be ideal under your foundation as it wouldn't make you look too greasy. If I'm going for the "no makeup" makeup look, this would be my first choice because it looks so natural!

Freedom Pro Studio Strobing Cream*; one of the latest additions to my collection. I had heard a lot about mac's strobe cream, so when the Freedom one landed through my door, I couldn't wait to give it a bash (dupe alert maybe?!) First thing I noticed was that it has a nice, sweet scent, and this makes all the difference when applying. Even when you accidentally add to much, it doesn't look "too much" or "overdone" as it's super natural, yet glowy. Basically, it's fab.

Benefit High Beam; one of Benefit's most raved products, so I bet you could imagine the excitement to get my glow on. It's recommended that you dot abut three dots and blend, but I find it works better to stroke a little bit onto my cheekbones then blend, personal preference. It's a similar colour to The Body Shop one when you see them sitting together, but with a slightly more pink undertone. It's a gorgeous pearl shade, which is any pale girl's dream.

Liquid highlighters, in my opinion, are a product worth investing in. They make a difference to whether you're achieving the natural look or wanting to make your highlight pop once your powder highlight is on. Just get some, you need them!

Have you got any favourite liquid highlighters that I need to try out?

  2. I used to use High Beam years and years ago, but I always found that it removed my foundation, so I am more of a fan of powder highlighters. I use Pixi Primer which has a lot of highlight in it, so perhaps I was just using the liquid highlighters wrong in the first place.

    1. I just use a damp beauty sponge to blend it out and feel it doesn't remove my foundation too badly! x

  10. Benefit's high beam is the only one of these I've used, but it's definitely a firm favourite. I really want to try powder highlighters at some point though because I often find liquid ones difficult to blend!

  13. I have the Rimmel one and that's super highlighting - I love it!! I always try to grab the Seventeen one, but its always out of stock...so annoying! I've also seen a lot of people using the Freedom liquid highlighter/strobe cream and wondered whether it was comparable to MAC?
    Such a lovely selection - this makes me want the Seventeen one even more though!
