Highlighting with Bare Mineral Makeup??

I would like to add some contour to my face makeup routine....Maybe using a highlighter or something to that nature. I use Bare mineral foundation and would like to know if anyone has any suggestions on what products work well with it? Also in what order would I apply the highlighter and foundation/mineral veil??

Thank You :smileyvery-happy:

Although it doesn't really matter I like to use powder highlighters with powder foundatoins and liquid/cream highighters with liquid/cream foundations.

That being said with bare minerals I think you should look into either NARS Albatross

Or Dior's Amber or Rose Diamond:

Smashbox's soft lights:

Application: After you have finished buffing in your Bare Minerals apply your blush, then your highlighter and then your mineral veil (just don't go overboard applying the mineral veil where you put the highlighter) I suppose you could do your highlighting last but I'm not sure if it would stay on as long.

 

Good luck!

oooooooo thank you! I hope you like some of those. Sorry they're kind of expensive, I find that drugstore brands don't really sell highlighters though (kind of strange). If you want you can also check out some from MAC.

Another great highlighter--Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder.

OR--get it in this set with a ton of other stuff for $7.50 more. Seriously,you're buying the powder and getting FOUR other full-size Lorac products for less than $2.00 each! Seriously!!!

Yes that kit is a great idea....And ya IDK why I have never seen a highlighter in a drug store.......hmmmmmm. Anyways my only concern is that the highlighter that comes in the Lorac set will be too dark for me, I use the light shade in the bare minerals. If it wont be too dark for me as a highlighter in the warm beige color I will go ahead and buy that set. Its a great deal and a great way to get some bonuses along with something I already want. Do you think a warm beige would be a good highlighter for a light complexion, or should I prob go with something lighter?? Thank You :smileyhappy:
