Highlighting powders

So I'm sure that it's pretty apparent that I like me some sheeny highlighting. I think it makes the complexion appear healthy and luminous when applied to the high planes of the face (tops of cheek bones, brow bones, bridge of nose, center of the forehead, on the cupids bow and the center of the chin). As long as you stick to these areas, highlighting should never make you look greasy-- this was always my fear before I really got into highlighters. You can get powder highlighters from all ranges now. It seems like drugstore cosmetic lines are really jumping on the bandwagon lately. I'm going to show you a range of both high and low-end highlighting powders that's I currently own but this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Tiki: subtle bronzing-beige glow
Wet N Wild ColorIcon Bronzer Reserve Your Cabana: subtle beige pearl glow
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer: white gold high-shine glow*
The Balm Cindy Lou Manizer: peachy pink glow with subtle iridescence
Wet N Wild Fergie Centerstage in Rose Champagne Glow: light pink glow*
E.L.F. Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky: light peachy pink glow
Physician's Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow in Translucent: very light cool pink glow

I love highlighters and wear them year round but they are particularly helpful in breathing life back into dull winter skin. If you've never tried highlighting before this is the time to give it a test drive. You can always use a product that you already own if you're not ready to commit to purchasing a powder highlighter-- like a shimmery champagne or light pink eye shadow. Highlighting reproduces that glow that we associate with healthy skin and also adds dimension to your face. Who doesn't want that?
