Beauty | Getting the Winter Glow

I really do love the festive season, everything is so sparkly and everything glows. So why should you make up be any different? Don't worry, I'm not asking you to glitterfy your face, but using a good highlighter to help make you cheeks glow and healthy looking is the perfect addition to your festive face this season.

Different tones of highlighters can help in different ways, and different areas highlighted will have a different affect on your face. I love having a glow at this time of the year. Usually my face looks dull and dry so the right highlighters help to pick it up. 

Cream highlights give a really natural glow to the skin and are really blendable. If you're looking for something affordable Topshop's Glow Highlighter in either Gleam or Polish. Gleam is a lovely deep golden colour so if you're a fan of deep bronzers this one is great for you. Polish is more of a pale, white gold so better if you're paler or just with to add a glow without bronze. They do have a little shimmer in them, and a lot of pigment so you don't need to use too much. Another cream one I absolutely love is Benefit's Watt's Up, a beautiful pale gold highlighter that's so easy to apply and blend and is the perfect one for the top of the cheek bones. 

Powder highlights are great as well, I find they are easier to apply and some have different tints and colours running through them which make them a bit more natural. The Mac's Mineralize skin finish powders in Adored and Soft and Gentle are beautiful and last for ever on the face. Adored is great for those with a paler face, it gives just a natural glow and sparkle, whilst Soft and Gentle has a lovely golden tint to it which adds colour and is actually stunning. It pairs really nicely on top of a bronzer. 

Highlighters also tend to go hand in hand with a contour shade, and Maybelline Master Sculpt is definitely one of my favourites. The colours pair together so well, and I love how the two compliment each other. This is also probably the palest highlighter which is probably the best to go with a contour shade as it'll show off the contouring more. 

I do love highlighters at the moment, I do feel and look healthier when I'm wearing one. Especially right now when all I feel is stuffy and a head full of cold...
