I love a good highlight , more than contouring. I love the brightness to my face that it brought. People are now into strobing which is: According to Douglass ( a makeup artist), a “strobed” face is achieved by applying highlighter where the sun would naturally hit your face — including the bridge of the nose, tip of the chin, center of the forehead, cupid’s bow, brow bones, and cheekbones. The process can even begin under your foundation with a radiance-boosting primer or a very emollient moisturizer.This is off the refinery 29 website.
Now, this is nothing new. I rather like highlighting and would do a full face makeup routine rather than add bronzer or a contour to my face. I feel like highlighting makes my nose look nicer, and there was a brightness in my skin that could not be contained. Basically, I feel like a goddess.
So I wanted to show you my arsenal of light catching emollients and make it into a series.
Here is the list (no order):
1. Ben Nye Luxury Powder In banana
2.Nars Blush in Albatross
3.Becca shimmering skin Perfector in Topaz
4. Mac perfectly Poised
5.Inglot Luminzer number 67
6. La pro conceal in Warm Honey, fawn, Toffee
7.Jelly Pong Pong Glow getter luminizer gel
8.Benefit Watts Up
9.Benefit Girl Meets pearl
10. Buxom Divine goddess luminizer
11. Benefit High beam
12. Mac select Coverup in NC 42
13. the Balm Cindy lou Manizer
14. MAC Wonder woman Golden lariat Mineralize skinfinish
Check out the photos I will be trying out below. And hopefully, you will be sticking around for the weekly series.
Catch ya later,
Interesting. I am looking forward to the weekly series.
I like that you’ll be trying out such a wide variety of items! Can’t wait to see how they perform to achieve the highlighted look (I refuse to use “strobing” because it’s getting SO out of hand, I am seeing it EVERYWHERE omg!)
Yeah. I guess my use of a luminizer and then using a highlight would be strobing in my opinion. We shall see I hope I don’t look like I dipped in my face in a bag of highlight
Great post! I’ve heard such great things about LA Girl’s proconcealer:)
