A Hollywood glow! | Highlighters

Hey dolls!
So I recently made a video all about highlighters, what they are used for (for beginners), How I apply them and also ones that I have and would recommend. I thought I would share it too in the form of a blog post! 
Well not all the other info but My recommended highlighters =] I will put the video below also if you would like to hear me nattering about them!


POWDERS: Dainty doll blush (for darker/cool skin tones) - Illamasqua Ether powdered metal - Sleek contour kit

CREAMS: Topshop Butterscotch - Jemma Kidd dewy glow in Rose gold - MAC Pearl cream colour base

LIQUIDS: Sleek glisten me illuminator - Benefit High beam - MAC Strobe cream - MAC Lustre drops in Pink rebel

Swatches in the order of the products above but here | Liquid - Cream - Powders


These are all good Highlighters in my opinion. My favourite of the powders would be the Sleek contour kit, Of the creams, MAC Pearl cream colour base & of the liquids, Benefit high beam just because I have had it for such a long time, its still going strong & Looks amazing on the cheekbones especially on a night out.

I wasn't sure whither to go into more detail about each one because i've spoken about each one in the video already but let me know if there are any you would like to see a more in-depth review on & i'll do that =]

What is your favourite highlighter and which type to you prefer? Let me know!

Hope you are all well,

Sammi xxx

I loved the video and the post! Unfortunately I never had the chance to try a highlighter, but when I do I'm going to try one of these! xxx

Hi Sammi, I was wondering do you think the dark sleek contour kit would still look okay/show up [sounds so silly] on my skin (I have medium dark brown skin)?
love your videos as usual so helpful :)
