FAVOURITE CONCEALERS FOR HIGHLIGHTING

highlighters_01

In the last few months I have added highlighting to my every day routine. I noticed that this makes a huge difference with my makeup. It gives my face a lot of dimension, giving me a bright and awake look. I use these products under my eyes, down the center of my nose, my cupid’s bow, and the middle of my forehead. It gives my face that extra bit of light and I have really been enjoying this process! Below is a review of highlighters I have been using to achieve that glow.

MAYBELLINE FIT ME – 25 MEDIUM

This is my everyday highlighter and I have to say I am quite impressed with it. The formulation is creamy, lightweight, and does not crease. It keeps my under eyes hydrated and smooth throughout the day. It doesn’t provide heavy-duty coverage, but it does just enough to brighten up those specific areas for everyday wear. It comes with a doe foot applicator, which allows for an easy effortless application.

Purchase: $7.96 for 0.23 at Walmart

NARS RADIANT CREAMY CONCEALER – BISCUIT

I use this highlighter for days where I am going for a full face of makeup. It is creamy and has good coverage to achieve that flawless look. This also has a doe foot applicator for easy application. The great thing about this line is that they have a ton of colours for every skin tone! If you are having a hard time finding a good concealer for your skin tone, this is worth trying!

Purchase: $36 for 0.22 oz at Sephora

MAKE UP FOREVER ULTRA HD CONCEALER- Y31

This is more of a heavy-duty concealer, again for those days where I am going for a full face of makeup. It has great coverage but doesn’t feel heavy or cakey at all. This concealer comes in a tube, so to apply just dab little dots where you want to highlight. You only need the smallest amount of product, as a little goes a long way. I purchased this at Sephora for $32.

APPLICATION

I use the applicators and create a triangle shape under my eyes and on my forehead, as well as a line down my nose and Cupid’s bow. I then use a damp beauty blender to blend the product into my skin. This allows for a seamless transition and also soaks up any excess product that’s not necessary. I set my highlighter using the Sephora Bright Set Pressed Finishing Powder. This will ensure the concealer stays put all day and does not crease.

Highlighting is great technique to use whether you want to do some dramatic highlighting and contouring, or to simply brighten up the face. It’s really up to you! Let me know if these products give you that glow you were looking for!

  1. Yay! I’ve been using a mini tube of the Nars Radiant Concealer and I really like the formula. The only thing is the shade I bought is waaaay too yellow for my skin. I’m also trying the Maybelline Master Conceal and while I love the full coverage it provides its a bit thick and I find not as blendable as the Nars. With both concealers though I’m having difficulty with creasing. I’ve tried different application techniques and setting my undereye with powder but it really emphasis my wrinkles. I’m sure its mostly user error since I really have no idea what I’m doing, haha. I’m going to keep practicing with what I have but I think the next one I try will be Urban Decays Naked Skin or the MUFE HD. Or maybe I’ll look into those apricot colour correcting things for my dark circles.

    1. Ya try them out and let me know how you like them! I think its really about how you apply, because I experienced creasing at first too. I just had to find a setting powder to lock it in and it was looking a lot better! Do you have a beauty blender? If not try that out cause it will help with blending. A lot of ppl also seem to like the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Power, so maybe try that out. Let me know how it goes 😀
