Today we’re talking highlighters. Cream highlighters. Kind of like a big deal those days as you’ll probably find them on every makeup tutorial on youtube. I’ve recently purchased Lord & Berry Luminizer highlighter, and so far so good (scroll down and you’ll see a swatch). I found that it’s a great alternative to Benefit’s watt’s up (which I tried before and liked, but the price tho *side eye*). Both are light champagne-y shades, very similar, easy to blend and last pretty well. I will not say that one is better than the other but Lord & Berry really does the job. Great dupe for only 16€.
Cream, liquid or powder ?
I personally prefer cream highlighters because I have a dry to combination skin and I feel like that’s what works best for me.
If you have oily skin, you should definitely go for powders but use them sparingly, or they can add more (too much) shine to your face, and no we don’t want that.
If you’re looking for a subtle « inner » glow, try applying it before foundation, it will still gives your skin that nice healthy glow but just less noticeable, great for your everyday makeup look. I usually tend to apply mine after I put foundation, on the highest points of my face, the very top of my cheekbones, my cupid’s bow and sometimes down the bridge of my nose.
You can use your fingers to apply cream highlighters (I recommend using a small foundation brush for liquid ones). Powder highlighters are best applied with a large powder brush or a fan brush for a softer touch.
