Top 3 Powder Highlighters: Bronze, Pink and White

When the colder seasons start to come around, I go highlighter mad. In the summer the heat and love of dewy/glowy foundations means highlighters aren't all that essential to give your skin a glowing quality.  In the fall and winter however the more matte and heavier foundations can make the skin look a little dull so I break out the highlighters to help perk the skin up. 

Today, I wanted to share my top 3 highlighters for the autumn and winter.  I have chosen something more golden toned, something pink and something white based. 

 Fashionista "Bronzer" in Barcelona

I hate when people label highlighters as bronzers, because this is far to light to be used as a bronzer, and far to shimmery too. Barcelona is a lovely golden highlight that is great for enhancing that fading summer tan or for people with a more yellow toned skin.  It looks great applied lightly for the more pale skin tones, and a heavier hand can make it work for darker tones. 

You can pick it up here for £1.65, instead of the £4  it would be in selected Superdrug.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter 

I reach for this highlighter when I want something more obvious. It's not the most subtle highlighting powders, and it really does look like you have something on but it still looks gorgeous. The pink tone really suit my cool skin tone and the super shimmery finish is great for super strong impact when you want more dramatic makeup. 

You can pick it up here for £3 or in selected Superdrug stores. 

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade 

This creamy/ivory toned highlight is my everyday pick because it suits my pale skin tone, gives a glow to the skin but doesn't look really obvious or dramatic. In the pan it looks like an ivory powder with swirls of pastal colours running through the base. On the skin it blends perfectly into my foundation/base leaving my cheekbones popping just a little bit more  than normal. 

You can pick this up here or at your local MAC store or counter for £22

    1. It is gorgeous! Just a bit to intense for everyday use (for me)

  2. The MUA highlighter looks really pretty! I have been using It Cosmetics highlighter lately. It's very subtle and natural! I also like to use UD Virgin or Bootycall eyeshadows as a highlight! :)

  3. Love the look of the MAC one. Thanks for co hosting the i love my post blog hop x
