I am a sucker for highlighting, it’s a fact. I absolutely love a little dewiness and highlighting is my favourite part of my makeup routine. Let me tell you something though, you don’t need to reserve highlighting for nights out, you can add this to your daily makeup routine, in a very subtle way. A little goes a long way and here is how I add a little glow and youth to my day time makeup look.
What gives me my glow?
The Laura Geller – Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in the shade Gilded Honey is stunning, simple to use and isn’t too overpowering for day time makeup. This champagne powder highlighter is spot on. Once my foundation is applied, I lightly apply a small amount of this to the tops of my cheekbones. I then add a little to my cupids bow, down the bridge of my nose, the ball of my nose and a tiny tiny amount to the centre of my forehead.
It takes all of 10 seconds and gives you a beautiful subtle glow. The champagne texture is perfect for all skin tones and not too over the top for a day time look. It sounds like a lot but, I promise, it really isn’t.
Again, that is it. I then go ahead and add my blush so both blend in seamlessly.
I can’t live without a little daytime highlighting, can you? Why should it only be saved for special nights out? Highlighting is possible to achieve in a simple, quick and subtle way.
I’ll see you soon. X.O.
