Not sure if you guys bother with highlighting in your everyday makeup routine but I find it's one way to make your skin "glow" just like those Korean actresses who always have perfect luminous skin. Sorry my camera doesn't take the best pictures- I actually look too shiny because of the flash- but in reality it's a very light shimmer.
There are many ways to highlight but here is what I use- it just so happens that both these products are by Benefit. There are alternatives out there and I will suggest a few at the end:)
Below is Benefit "10" and its a duo colour powder with a very shimmery light pink highlight and then a darker shade for contouring. I use a big fluffy brush and give it a couple of swirls and place the lighter colour on the top of my cheeks and then naturally the darker will be placed on the lower half of the cheek- all in one swipe of the brush. So easy! (as shown in the pic above) It comes with its own brush but I prefer using a big fluffy brush instead whish is easy to blend so as to avoid a striped effect. Not a very good look!
And finally I use the liquid highlighter "High Beam" for smaller areas such as the eyebrow bone and the bridge of my nose and a little bit on the highest part of my cheeks. This is also great to mix with your foundation and get a luminous effect. The good thing about these products is that it's not over the top glittery so you look like a fairy- unless that's the look are after. But otherwise the overall effect is very subtle.
If you can't get your hands on Benefit- there is another way! I sometimes use eyeshadows for highlighting and it works just as well. Eg. Mac E/S Jest or Naked Lunch. Jest is my favourite of the two- it gives are very nice "glow" and great finish too! I wouldn't suggest using anything too glittery- it's not the same effect!
I recently bought this on ebay- Skin Food Lime Secret Shine Base and can't wait to try it out. It comes in 3 colours but I chose the gold finish since I don't have this colour. If you've tried this please let me know what you think:)
