Highlighters For Dewy, Luminous Skin

When I think of the festive season, my mind always wanders to matte red lips and dewy, luminous skin. This year I have bought a few highlighters ready for the occasion, and today I thought I would share with you my top picks for my Christmas makeup. 

A new addition to my collection has been the Sleek Cleopatra's Kiss Palette, a quad made up of two cream and two powder highlighters to suit all your needs. Although I'm not usually a fan of the cream offerings in these palettes, Dynasty was the hue that changed my mind, as it gives a gorgeous soft sheen to the skin which can be intensified by being layered up with one of the powders, especially the Goddess. 

My go-to highlighter at the moment is the Cover FX Moonlight Enhancer Drops to achieve a "wet look" to the skin and keep my complexion looking extremely dewy. These can be used in a multitude of ways like on their own on top of the cheekbones or mixed in with your foundation for an overall glow. If there's one highlighter you track down and treat yourself to this festive period, then it should be this. 

Becca Champagne Pop was of course going to feature in this line up, as the finely milled, glow inducing powder helps to revive my lacklustre skin. If I'm looking for a more golden highlighter that adds a bit of colour to my skin too, then this is my go-to. 

For dewy skin on a budget, you can't beat the Topshop Polish Glow Highlighter, a light champagne pick which gives off a subtle glow that can be easily worn daily. Although the formula is creamy, it does turn to a slight powder once blended into the skin, however it still keeps it's fresh, dewy look. 

Although Cleo's Kiss is the current quad I reach for, the Sleek Solstice Palette is still worth a mention as this is the one I go back to when I want an intense highlight thats highly pigmented and long lasting. 

What highlighters are you loving at the moment?
