Summer is in and our highlighters are all out on display; the more the merrier. We love a glowing skin and at this point, it's safe to say it is our signature look. We are always on the hunt for good highlighters such as this one. Makeup Forever has done it again and these highlighters are definitely on the top of the hit list! It is also amazing for the bridal season, especially when mixing it or using it on top of the Ultra HD Foundation.
It is a versatile highlighter as it can be used on its own, on top or mixed with other products. It can be used on a bare face or following moisturizer. Even after a product of SPF, it'll add a soft natural glow. It's ideal for days, when we don't feel crazy about wearing any makeup. It has a pearlescent and sparkle free blurring formula and it resembles a natural glow - this is what makes this highlighter unique.
This highlighter feels lightweight even when wearing it all day long. It is easy to blend and gives a healthy appearance. Caution: a little goes a long way. A tiny drop can be used for the entire face, therefore the product lasts for a long time and its high price becomes more reasonable.
You can blend it with a BB cream or foundation. It can leave the foundation a dewy finish and it blends seamlessly with most liquid foundation formulas we have used it so far. It is good for both day and night time because it is glitter free!
When layering on top of a foundation, be careful to tap it lightly instead of smearing it quickly because it might slightly move your foundation and reduce its coverage. Be sure to blend it well on the edges with the foundation! All in all, it layers nicely on top of foundation.
Packaging-wise, it comes in a squeezable tube that allows you to see how much product is left. I hate when I run out of products without any prior notice! It comes in four colors. The one depicted above is in the color Pink Pearl, which is a pink with a slightly cool undertone that makes it ideal for most fair to olive skin undertones! For darker skin tones there's more to choose from the range. The golden and copper tones can be mixed with a foundation during summertime - it'll look amazing. Due to its light consistency and color range it is good for all skin types, tones and more mature ones too.
There is no need to put highlighting powder on top, but if you do, your highlighter will be visible from space. Trust me, I’ve tried it and yes, it was in the morning. No judgment please, I like my highlighter to reach outer space. For me this is the liquid version of the Hourglass Ambient Highlighting powders. Give it a go and let us know!
