Guest Blog Post #1: Top 5 Highlighters by Lauren Marie

Hi everyone, I'm Lauren from Makeup By Lauren Marie and  I have put together my top 5 highlighters, weather you like to look OTT or just simply glowing, there is something here for everyone.

First up if your on a budget, I highly recommend Bourjois Java Rice powder, this is an illuminating powder that brightens the skin and adds a very subtle glow to the cheeks. Its so finely milled its a dream to wear and looks great applied to the apple of the cheeks and along the temples, I cannot recommend this enough. Still sticking with budget we have Sephora Rose highlighter, this is a little more obvious but still natural. Its a rose gold shimmering powder that looks super divine on the face. This is highly pigmented and for only €13 its a steal.

If you like to spend a little extra, Mac Soft & Gentle is a gorgeous highlighter, this is subtle, but still vivid, I do find that if this is applied and buffed in too much it can turn to glitter, so just sweeping this across your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose with a light hand is the best way to apply it. This will catch the light and give your face that luminous glow. If you have pale skin and feel as though Rose shaded highlighters are a bit too dark for you, Nars Albatross is the perfect highlighter for you. Albatross is a yellow toned highlighter, that looks really unique, its contains hardly any glitter just shimmer and looks great on the cheeks, this can be applied lightly for a more natural look or it can be applied more heavy handed for a dramatic result. This one is defiantly one to keep an eye out for. Lastly we have the mother of all highlighters and that is The Balm Mary Loumanizer, this is the literally. Its creamy, pigmented and looks like your cheeks are bursting with glowiness when its applied. This highlighter is for people who love highlighter so if your not one who likes to stand out, you may want to avoid this one. 

So there you have it, 5 great highlighters ranging from barley there to in your face glow. Have I tempted you into trying any of these? Comment below and tell me your favourite highlighter.
