Highlighters are something I’ve only started experimenting with in the last year or two. I love the glowy look they give and let’s not talk about the amount of time I’ve spent checking my cheeks out in the mirror after applying one. No, seriously. Don’t go there.
I bought the little trio of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors from Sephora around the holidays and they are wonderful. They are liquid highlighters you can apply on top of or mix into your foundation. The formula is a creamy but still thin liquid with a beautiful sheen whichs gives such a nice glow to skin.
The kit I have (which sadly is no longer available but you can get the full sizes) has three minis of Opal, Pearl, and Champagne Gold. Opal is a subtle pink-tinted color, Pearl is white, and Champagne Gold is – obviously- gold. I love all the colors but can’t decide if I like Opal or Champagne Gold best.
All the highlighters have a very pearly sheen but no large chunks of glitter. They do have a teeny bit of sparkle but it’s something I had to really examine to see and definitely doesn’t scream “I’m wearing glitter!”
I usually apply these by dotting the little applicator along my cheekbones after foundation and then taking a stippling brush (I use the elf Small Stippling Brush) to gently blend it into the skin. This gives me a nice glowy but blended look.
I love these so much and can’t wait to add more to my collection. Any other liquid highlighters I should try?
