BEAUTY TEST DRIVE
4 mega highlighters to add to your beauty shelf
By Joanna Kyte, 15 April 2017
Whether you’re calling it highlighting, strobing or illuminating right now, tapping your cheekbones (+ cupid’s bow and brow bones for all you beauty pros) with a little sheen is like some kind of face magic. Get in the know with these four major shrines to shine...
I’ll level with you, adding this extra step into your morning regime will minus three minutes from your snooze spell, but – scouts freakin' honour here – it will plus face glow x a mill. With that promise in mind, I tried four of the best highlighters on ASOS to get you in the glow game.
Strobing: sounds scary, feels breezy with this stick o’ shine in from Barry M. When applying to your cheekbones (tip: feel your face for the mini dip next to your ear and begin there), this baby glides like a dream and lasts from 9-9.
If you’re looking for a forever faithful highlighter for everyday, this NARS powder is for you. It feels super-light and will give you a real natural bronze to work with on the regular. Yes!
Yes, tapping a balm-feel product onto my face instead of lips felt a little wrong to begin with, but once you get over the fear, this strobe salve will hit the top spot in your sworn-by beauty picks. Apply the gloss to your cheeks and the bridge of your nose for all-day illumination.
Girl Meets Pearl from Benefit is the one that has probably achieved fame among your girl group in that sacred beauty recommendations list. Twist up onto the back of your hand first and then use your ring finger (for more delicate application) to add this luxe liquid to your key facial areas. Final note: do believe the hype.
