So I must admit I have not been a big fan of this whole highlight makeup trend. Because I have had some texture concerns with my skin I often find it just highlights the wrong things on my face aka areas I am trying to avoid highlighting like bumps or any any areas of non smoothness. Anyway I am going off on a tangent but the point is that for these reasons I have avoided being highlighted ‘to the Gawds’.
Well this all changed recently when I found myself browsing the NYX stand in boots in Liverpool Street station just before a holiday(side note:this has to be the best Boots store ever!). I picked up the NYX born to glow illuminator on a whim, at the time I envisioned mixing a little with my foundation for that holiday/island girl glow. The shade I settled on was ‘Sun Goddess’ and honey let me tell you I was not disappointed. For under a tenner this product has finally got me on trend with the highlight popping slay.
I have my eyes set on picking up the shade ‘Pure Gold’ next. I also realised that liquid highlight is a little more forgiving than the powder types which can sometimes result in highlighting any texture issues with skin. I have included a picture of how the finished results look, let me know what you think. Are there any other highlighters you think I should embrace soon?
