  • Although in general I am a matte look to the skin kinda girl , mostly around the T-zone as lets be honest the greasy oily look ain’t a good one, however having said that having slight luminosity on the right areas of the skin can give your a gorgeous youthful glow that makes you look more awake and healthy too. There are two products in particular which I have been loving lately both with a similar purpose but slightly different undertones also one bing  a budge buy the other more of a splurge never the less here’s my overview of the two. 

    Budget Buy: L’oreal Paris Lumi Magique Base , £9.99 This lightweight primer has a very light reflective and luminous base that can be used all over the face or simply on the areas you want to enhance and highlight. It’s got a pretty watery formula with pearly coloured shimmers however once it has been blended into your skin those are hardly noticeable yet still leave your skin with a luminous glow.  I personally love mixing this with my foundation on days where I want a luminous effect on the skin once set with  powder this will not leave you oily if thats your concern. However this also looks beautiful applied only on the high points of your cheekbones to add a gorgeous glow. Since the product has a slight white cool undertone I would say this would work best on paler skin tones.

    Splurge Buy: BeneFit Girl Meets Pearl: £24.50 This has a similar purpose even formula however it is more on the golden/pinky side. I have tried using this both mixed with my foundation and just on the high points of the cheekbones and it works great broth ways although I do prefer this product as a highlighter. A little goes a long way and the packaging is just simply beautiful. The shimmers inside the product are super fine so your left with a gorgeous fresh and bright looking highlighted skin that catches the light and it has a really good staying power too. 

    Overall both products have become staples in my make up routine over the last few weeks. Although they both serve a similar purpose they are unique in their own way with slightly different undertones. I feel like these kind of products are great as they are versatile and will look gorgeous in the summer with a tanned skin even on their own.

    Have you tried any of the two? Whatsyour favourite highlighter?

      I love highlighting my cheeks a little, recently and Girls Meets pearl is such a lovely pink colour. I am favouring Benefit's Watts Up at the moment though 🙂
