As most girls in 2015 would probably agree, a good highlighter is a very important part of our makeup routine, especially when we're getting glammed up for a night out. In my opinion, nothing beats a bit of golden shimmer to highlight those cheeks and finish a look, which is why I thought I'd round up 5 of my current favourites to share with you today.
REVLON HIGHLIGHTING PALETTE IN ROSE GLOW: Known as the dupe of Bobbi Brown's infamous shimmer brick - this rose gold, bronze and pink toned palette is the perfect alternative for those who aren't willing to splash the cash on the real thing. A great multi-purpose product that can be used as a subtle highlight when certain sections are applied separately, or a beautiful shimmery pink blush can be created when each shade is combined together.
MAC SOFT & GENTLE: This is a firm favourite of mine, in not only my small collection of highlighters but possibly throughout my whole makeup collection. It is exceptionally pigmented - just the tiniest amount will add the most beautiful pearl/champagne toned shimmer of radiance to the cheeks or any other desired body part, which means that it lasts for months and months too. At £24, this is on the verge of being quite an expensive product, but well worth it in my eyes.
MUA UNDRESS YOUR SKIN IN IRIDESCENT GOLD: The beauty steal of the century has to be this MUA highlighter which holds a measly price tag of just £3! Not only does this gorgeous, creamy and insanely pigmented gold shade suit all skin tones, all year round, but it's also a perfect dupe to the NARS' Albatross highlighter which is one that I've wanted to get my hands on for ages.
MUA UNDRESS YOUR SKIN IN PINK SHIMMER: If you're more of a pearly pink toned lover, then don't worry, MUA have your back too. This doesn't suit my skin tone as much as the gold version, but for just £3, you can't really go wrong with either of these. If you're looking for a good quality highlighter that doesn't break the bank, I'd definitely recommend giving these a try.
NARS ORGASM BLUSH: Although this is more along the lines of a blush rather than a highlight, I wanted to include it in my favourites as I feel that it's another multi-purpose product as the shimmery golden hues that run through it replace the need for an additional application of a highlighter. This blush is so pigmented and easy to work with and can be used in small amounts to create that subtle flushed effect or built up to create an even more dramatic glow.
