Summer Glow

Let's talk about that summer glow. We all love a good highlight, I know I do! Highlight is one thing I never leave the house without. Even days when I have very simple make up on, I rely on the highlight to give me the fresh glowy look.

 Applying highlight on the high planes of your face such as, cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of the nose, cupid's bow can really help accentuate your bone structure. I love highlighters and as much as I try not to buy so many I always end up giving in and purchasing every new highlighters that come out.

So today I'm going to talk about my top 4 favorite highlighters. I tried my best to picture these swatches as close to their true colors as I could.

See below for more:)

 Top to bottom on my hand: Opal by Becca, So hollywood by ABH, Oh darling by Mac   1.  So Hollywood by A nastasia beverly hills   When this highlighter first came out I wasn't able to get my hands on it, it was sold out so fast. The hype about this highlighter was so crazy and let me tell you, I totally understand the hype after purchasing this highlighter. It randomly restocked online months later so I finally gave in and bought it. I've been obsessed ever since. It is so pigmented and the finish is so beautiful on the skin, it is a perfect gold highlighter. It doesn't have any orange or pinkish undertone, its pure gold.   2  .  Oh Darling by MAC    This extra dimension skinfinish is also another great highlighter to have. This is more of a warmer gold with a orange-brown undertone, you can see the difference between this and so hollywood once you apply it on your skin. This also has an amazing pigmentation and blends so well into your skin leaving you a dewy glow. I absolutely love it!   3.  Opal by becca    This is another highlighter that everyone loves and I was hesitant on buying because I have SOO MANY highlighters already. I wasn't going to buy this one until they came out with the  sunchaser palette . This palette has the sunlight bronzer ( which I love) also a blush and the opal highlight. It is the perfect palette to have for traveling and when you want to pack light. Its a great 3 in one palette.  I have been just using this palette lately to bronze, for blush and highlight. I love the opal highlight as well it has an amazing finish super pigmented and lasts all day. This highlight has a pinkish undertone so it is different than the other two I mentioned above.

 From Left to right on my arm I have: Golden bronze, Dripping in gold, Sunburst, and Bubbly.    4 .  That glow kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills (soldout)   Last but not least, "THAT GLOW" kit!! This is definitely a Holy Grail highlighter palette! It was my first anastasia highlighter I purchased and I fell in love with it. This palette is really all you need. It has four different shades and all of them are so beautiful on my skin color. I love the pigmentation and finish is so glowy and dewy. I hate when a palette will have 1 or 2 good shades the the rest are crap! But this palette, literally all the shades are amazing and you can really get a good use of all of them. Also a good palette to have if you travel because it gives you a few different options for highlight rather than packing 4 or 5 different compacts.

Honestly, you don't need all these highlighters at all!! Unless your a crazy highlighter freak like me and you like to buy almost every new one that comes out. If you own even one of the 4 I listed above, your pretty much set! All four of these highlighters are so beautiful, so pigmented, and they last long. Once you do swatches of all of them on your skin you can really see the difference between them all. Some might be slightly different, however, they all give you that amazing glow. So it just depends on what type of undertone you prefer for your highlight whether its super gold, pinkish gold, or orangey-bronze and you can just stick to one, IT WILL GET THE JOB DONE!
