4 Favourites | High End Highlighter Edition

L-R – Illamasqua Deity, Mac Double Gleam, Mac Lightscapade, Illamasqua OMG

Ya girl likes to glow. I genuinely shudder when I add up how much I must have spent on highlighters in the past 8 years, because I do genuinely believe the highlighters are one of those things that you can scrimp on and still get decent payoff. However, everyone feels a bit boujie sometimes, and if you’re looking for a high end highlighter to fill some kind of void in your heart, you’ve come to the right place.

I’ll put a blanket comment on the quality of the highlighters here. All 4 of these highlighters are stunning. They are all very soft and translate on to the skin beautifully. They last all day, but they’re not overwhelming or blinding so if you’re looking for a beautiful but natural highlight, these are definitely for you.

I have loved this highlighter, and as you can see, it’s been used a lot. Double Gleam is a beautiful golden champagne colour, but on top of that, it’s really versatile. I love using this as an inner corner highlight, as well as on my cheekbones.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish – Lightscapade – £27

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish – Lightscapade

This is a beauty lovers OG highlighter, and it was definitely the first high end highlighter that I ever bought. The multitones of silver, lilac and peach running through this highlighter create a gorgeous end result of a not quite gold, not quite silver sheen. Very natural, and very light, which is great for me because I am Very Pale.
